My wife and I came here for our honey moon. Marilyn was very charming and helpful. Her sense of decor certainly lights up the place. The washrooms were very nice. They decorated our bed in rose petals when they found out it was our honeymoon. Martin is an excellent cook. I hope he makes you breakfast. He even gave us... More

Marilyn & Martin the fantastic owners of this beautiful villa made us feel at home the moment we arrived in our gorgeous honeymoon suite. The views of Knesyna estuary are spectacular and Martin cooks up a storm in the mornings from their fabulous kitchen. Marilyn booked two restaurants for us and they were both to die for. The room was... More

You really need a car to get to this guest house. It's set right up on top of the hill overlooking Knysna. Security is good as you enter through electric gates and drive up a very steep drive to the parking area. A member of staff was quickly there to help carry our bags up the stairs to the entrance....

Very clean and luxurious guest-house on a quiet street in the nice town of Knysna. We were there in may, so didn't get to enjoy the pool. Martin and Marilyn are very welcoming, Martin's breakfast is superb. We had a car, which is good to have to explore Knysna and the Garden Route from Villa Paradia. They arranged for restaurant...

This was our 2nd visit to Martin and Marilyn's beautiful guest house and once again our expectations were exceeded as soon as we entered the big gates to their beautiful home. Efficient and friendly staff quickly moved luggage to our room while we were warmly welcomed by Martin and Marilyn in their beautiful home. The luxury room and bathroom decorated... More

We stayed here for two nights in December. The location is stunning and the pool and deck overlooks the bay which is a beautiful view of Knysna. The guest house itself is done to a very high standard as you'd expect from a hotel, yet feels so homely which is lovely. The hosts are fabulous! Not only breakfast, but I... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night in December, 2014, in between our trip to George and Cape Town. Unfortunately the owners were out of town but Marilyn's mother there and made sure we were comfortable and informed. Initially we were placed in the wrong room but it was an innocent error and was fixed very quickly. The... More
