Paradise Heads is situated just outside Knysna town in a quiet leafy suburb close to the main road. Our unit was fully furnished and stocked with all you will need for a smooth self-catered stay. Our unit had a great view of the bay, was clean and perfect space for two. We find the walls a bit thin and could... More

The view was stunning. The hosts were very helpful, however the room was not very comfortable. when the bathroom light goes on the most awful noise seems to be be turned on as well. It was the most iritating. I would definetly not have taken that room if I have not paid in advance. Good budget room for resting on... More

I have no idea how the guest could have had a noise when they put the bathroom light on in number 2 as it is only a light bulb, there is nothing connected to it that can make a noise. If it was so annoying why didn't the guest let us know there was a problem? If we don't know... More

I stayed there for 2 nights. The room was very clean and neat. The hosts were very friendly. I forgot my phone charger and they contact me to let me know that they have found it in the room. You do not get that normally. I am already planning my next stay there. It is good value for money. I... More

Thank you to Barbara and Eddie for their hospitality and kindness during our recent stay. Paradise Heads has a beautiful view of Knysna Lagoon and the Heads and is situated in a quiet neighbourhood. The facilities are clean and neat and perfect for overnight stays.

Very nice place, like the room we stayed in - view right down the lagoon to the heads. But please don't think that this establishment is situated at the actual knysna heads, its a distance away from the heads ( by the Total petrol station as you come in to town). The parking is a bit tight, but what i... More

Although the facilities were not state of the art, they were clean and more than adequate for our needs. Within walking distance of the waterfront with all it's restaurants and bars and amazing views over the lagoon. We couldn't have asked for a better location and our hosts were brilliant! Nothing was too much trouble.

My husband and I stayed here in Room 4 for one night as we travelled through and got a warm welcome. The room was comfortable, spotless and had a little balcony. The view overlooking the water was superb. It's not on the main street, but it's very close to the town - just a short walk away.
