Best service ever. A beautiful home with the best view of the lagoon. Excellent service from the owner, felt like I was home away from home. I could not have asked for anything better. Definitely visiting Paradise house in the future.

My Boyfriend and I stayed there for one night. We arrived without any reservation, but we got a very nice room and also the breakfast the next morning was probably the best we had on the Garden Route!

We stayed at the Paradise house for 3 nights in June. Paradise house is a gem tucked away on the Knysna hills. From the guesthouse we had picture perfect views over the Knysna lagoon. The town is within walking distance although we preferred driving (it’s a steep walk back). We had a real feeling of home staying at Paradise House.... More

Hostess Fran was better than the best, a beautiful person who went out of her way for us to have the best Knysna vacation ever.... Oh and let's not forget to mention Dash - the cutest beagle...

Suite 5- Breakfast was delicious and enough, room was spacious and service friendly and excellent. With the space of the room, the bathroom will do really well with a bath..especially during winter time as the unit is very cold. The unit doesn't get any sun, perhaps the reason for this. The last morning of our stay our shower water was... More

Hi Nicoli I am deeply sorry that you were not comfortable in your room. I have to ensure you that I never switch any geysers off, as you mentioned it is a business, I am not sure why your water was luke warm but have checked the geyser and it was working well.

We stayed over for a night during the oyster festival. Room was beautiful and the view was spectacular. Breakfast was a feast and we would gladly refer our friends to you. The champagne was a nice surprise and we would be back!

Fran is the proverbial hostess!! The wellbeing of her guests is of utmost importance to her - and she does it effortlessly. She goes out of her way to ensure staying at Paradise House is a memorable experience, not only because of the beautiful view and comfortable room! Thank you Fran!

We enjoyed our time at Paradise House since Fran is a lovely host. She upgraded our room to one with a better view and provided a delicious breakfast. We would highly recommend the guest house as it is but we know she has plans to develop it further and are sure she will continue to provide the best service.
