We had the most amazing time at Villa Paradisa. The location, room quality, the breakfast, the hospitality I am at a loss of words. The room has a heated flooring, the bathroom tiles are heated and so are the towels. On all nights the room was set up by the housekeeping they kept flowers and took care of every little... More

excellent and organised a great packed breakfast for me as I was leaving early! The room was very comfortable and the under floor heating excellent given it was a cold and rainy night. Organised a good taxi service with a guy called BJ.

Villa Paradisa is a gorgeous guest house with beautiful views of the lagoon. The room was warm and welcoming, which was perfect for a birthday weekend for my wife. Martin and Marilyn were wonderful hosts. Marilyn made us feel right at home during our stay and Martin made one of the best breakfasts my wife and I have ever had.... More

We had a 2 night stay at the Villa Paradisa. A lovely room with great views over the town and bay below. The breakfasts are Martin's speciality whilst Marilyn looks after the administration and the stay is enhanced by the warmth of the hospitality.

We had the most wonderful stay at Villa Paradisa. It is the most beautiful property with the best view of Knysna you could want. Marilyn and Martin were lovely hosts - very kind and thoughtful, and knew of the best places to see. We will definitely be back again soon!

Unfortunately we had limited time here, but the night we did spend was great. The hosts are fabulous and can cook a mean breakfast. The rooms were nice and bathrooms fabulous with heated floors and towel racks. The guest house is up in the hills and a 10min drive away from the boardwalk where the restaurants are. You won't regret... More

We are just amazed by this hotel. The only hotels that pair with these rooms are Ritz Carlton and so on... And we stayed in the cheapest room, which you don't need to hesitate in booking because it's just awesome. Our room was impecably clean and tide, furniture are beautiful and the floors from both bedroom and bathroom are heated.... More

The owners of this place is a lovely couple - Marilyn and Martin. They are super nice and a lot of fun to talk to. We spent the start of our evening over a... More

Marilyn was the kindest, sweetest host. The house is beautiful and rooms immaculate. While it is a private residence, the rooms we rented had private entrances from the outside that were connected to the house via other doors. The brunch her husband cooked in the morning was amazing. Fresh coffee, juices, the best ommelette I seriously have ever had, pastries,... More
