We recently stayed at the guest House. On arrival Marina & Chris made us feel so welcome. Beautiful, clean rooms with a wonderful view. Staff was great, service was excellent, food wonderful. You should be a 5 star B&B you guys deserve it. You will definitely see us on our next visit. Prices are affordable.

We arrived in Knysna & called Marina & Ronnie at South Villa and asked for a room even though we had not booked. What a pleasure! 15 min later we were in our beautiful, tastefully decorated room with everything we needed and more. Ronnie even helped us unpack our car. Such lovely attention to detail...and I am a fussy customer!... More

We stayed here for two nights during our honeymoon. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Every morning they bring you your breakfast on your own private balcony with amazing views over the lagune. The guesthouse is very clean and its an easy walk to the waterfront.

I stayed for 2 nights at South Villa and couldn't have been better. The rooms are big and spacious with a private balcony overlooking the lagoon. You can even have breakfast on your balcony to make the most of the view. The service was excellent very friendly and attentive staff. Would thoroughly recommend.

Quiet, nice location, modern, perfectly clean rooms with private balconies with beautiful views of the Knysna lagoon (and you can have your breakfast there). Perfect really in every detail. And Marina, the owner, was so nice and helpful! Absolutely recommendable!

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left South Villa it couldn't have been better. No sooner had we got out of the car, when Chris arrived at our side to welcome us and help us with our bags. We ended up only staying 1 night but the room was wonderful....full views out to The Heads. The cleanliness... More

The pictures shown don't do it justice. It is so beautifully decorated, and the owners are very warm and friendly. Every facility is provided, and having three options of where to take breakfast just adds to the feeling of being special. The views are wonderful and it feels secluded yet it isn't too far from the waterfront. There are quite... More

It's hard to add anything useful to these rave reviews. We enjoyed our time at the South Villa Guest House. Super clean and comfortable rooms. There are a number of stairs up from the street parking, but the owners carried the luggage so it wasn't a problem. The best features are the private terraces with stunning views of the bay.... More
