Villa Paradisa is spectacular and Marilyn and Martin are great hosts. When we arrived, we were awe struck by the house and the views. It would be a perfect destination for a couple on a romantic getaway or a family with older children who can appreciate natural beauty. The only negative I have is that we were travelling with a...

We arrived on a sadly wet and gray day but were delighted by the welcome and the care that had been taken to welcome us. A restuarant had been booked for us to accept if we wished and the following day (in beautiful sunshine) a trip and another eating place organised for us. This stay was in the second week... More

I don't know what's better, the place or the people! Marilyn and Martin are the sweetest, most accommodating people! Marilyn greeted my husband and I after arriving from a long drive along the Cape. She offered us a glass of wine and educated us on all there was to do in the area. Breakfast in the morning was tough to... More

We primarily booked on the basis of the view but during our 4 night stay got so much more from our stay. Firstly the view is stunning, easily the best in Knysna and our room included a balcony from which to enjoy it. Beyond that our hosts, Marylin and Marty were excellent, couldn't have done more to help enjoy the... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Paradisa for two nights as our first stop on our honeymoon and we were absolutely blown away by the service and accommodation! Marilyn and Martin were both unbelievably accommodating and our stay was amazing!!

We stayed 4 nights in March at Martin and Marilyn's stunning villa. We stayed at the Oyster Suite which had breath-taking views of the Knysna lagoon which we enjoyed from the balcony. The suite was very spacious with our own jacuzzi bath, bath salts and all the amenities you would find in a 5 star accomodation. Martin and Marilyn are... More

We stayed 2 nights at Marylin and Martin's superb villa (room sea urchin). Everything was just perfect: the welcome by the hostess, the spacious room with all amenities, the fantastic view over Knysna bay, the quiet nights, the excellent cooking by Martin and all the information necessary to make our stay a memorable one If we come back to Knysna,...

We stopped here for two nights in February, it's high on the hill overlooking Knysna lagoon. It's a substantial property built into the side of the hill. There are a number of rooms, we were with friends and we had lovely rooms with a balcony overlooking the Lagoon and out to the heads. It's got everything you would want, and... More

We spent a delightful couple of days staying here on recommendation from friends. The view from the house is spectacular and what is especially lovely is that one has a balcony to sit on and chill out overlooking the sea and all the activity. The room was enormous with amazing bathroom all spotlessly clean and it feels as if you... More

We only stayed for one night but were made to feel incredibly welcome by Martin and Mary. The guesthouse is situated high on the hills above. Lagoon but the photos just don't do it justice. The view is quite literally breathtaking, sitting by the pool in the sunshine with a glass of wine watching the boats come and go is... More
