All staff members are making every minute a wonderful stay, helping to get the best of the place as well as the Knysna area. The suites are very modern, comfortable, overlooking Knysna bay with a stunning view. Evening drinks, breakfast from... More

We have just stayed here for 5 nights, could easily have made it more. The accommodation is excellent, the villa is beautifully decorated with marvellous views of the lagoon. The hosts, Ross and Bianca are lovely. Ross has a wealth of knowledge of the area, especially the Italian influence, and is always great to talk to at breakfast. Bianca is... More

The apartments are relatively new. We had a beautifully appointed spacious suite which was immaculately presented-housekeeping standards are above and beyond normal expectations. The owner, Ross, is hands on and couldn't do more to help. We arrived for a two night stay with no bookings for anything and he directed us on a great self drive tour of the area... More

We had a fabulous stay at Villa Afrikana! The welcome was so warm and friendly, the staff extremely helpful, the room spacious with a nice view and the breakfast was fresh and completely adapted to our preferences. A perfect stay in Knysna even if the hotel is a little bit far from the centre for walking distances.

We stayed two nights in knysna. Our hosts were very welcoming and the staff faultless in their service and attention to detail. Clean, stylish and moden interior with some great African art. Great views from the guesthouse and easy access to all the key things to do. Hosts were very helpful with knysna information and forward planning our next journey.... More
