From the moment we arrived, we were so thrilled with Villa Paradisa. The view of the lagoon and mountains is breathtaking. The villa has very comfortable pouches where we sat to enjoy the sunset and then to see this night sky. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The gourmet breakfast is outstanding and the owners are delightful. The villa... More

We stayed at Villa Paradisa in July as part of our trip on the Garden route. Marilyn and Martin couldn't have been more welcoming, we felt at home right away. The rooms were immaculately furnished with under floor heating and the views from the breakfast room were outstanding... Martin's breakfast was also one of the best I have ever tasted.... More

High end bathrooms. Fantastic views. Tasty breakfasts and really friendly hosts and staff (and cat!). Marilyn and Martin did us proud - a fantastic start... More

This was our 1st stay at Villa Paradisa & what an awesome time we had. I was looking for a special place to take my lovely wife of 30 years, to celebrate our anniversary & could not have chosen a better place. The excellent Oyster suite (with champagne, flowers & lovely touches splendidly arranged by Marilyn) was a perfect setting... More

We stayed in this hotel on the way to Cape Town. The hotel is located on a hill, so the view is great. That was the reason why we chose this place, but except the view we also found nice rooms, convenient parking, good service and great people there. Martin and Marilyn are very kind and friendly, and Martin is... More

10/10 We had a lovely stay. Great hosts. Spectacular view. 5 star accommodation. Perfect for honeymoon couples. Even a friendly cat for cat lovers to make you feel at home. The guest house is in the perfect vicinity away from busy streets.

Martin's breakfast was incredible. The hosts were very warm and accommodating and put up a lovely place together. Very European and chic. Offers incredible views and pretty infinity pool. Would love to go back for Martin's breakfast.
