Although located on a reasonably high hill once you've made the ride your home. We were met by a staff member who not only showed us to our lovely and very modern suite but did everything to have us feel that we could relax and enjoy our stay in a friendly and caring atmosphere. All the various ammenities were present... More

There's not doubt, this place is special. Ross and Bianca and, let's not forget, the other 8 staff (who are all fantastic) run Villa Afrikana with a level of passion and customer focus that you'll struggle to find elsewhere. In South African terms it's pricey - but if you're coming from Europe it presents pretty good value for money. In... More

We have been 3 nights with Ross and Bianca in Paradise and did not regret the decision one second. Service, rooms and especially the view have been perfect and we would have liked to stay much longer - which unfortunately was not possible. If we ever come back to Knysna, we will definitely stay again with them!

We had 6 lovely days with Bianca, Ross and the excellent and friendly staff. In all what they do you feel that they are 150% custumer orientated and do everything to make your stay an unforgettable experience. You feel this in the decotation of the room, the breakfast served on the balcony and the friendly way Bianca and Ross take... More

We spent an unforgettable 3 nights at Villa Afrikana last week. It was our last stop on a 3 week trip to South Africa and we could not have asked for a more perfect ending. Ross, Bianca and their amazing staff go above and beyond to make you feel special. There is absolutely nothing that can be faulted from the... More

We had the most wonderful few days staying at the Villa Afrikana Guest Suites - we only wish we could have stayed there for longer on our three week visit to the Western Cape! The welcome we received from the owners Ross and Bianca perfectly hit all of the right hospitality notes and they and their friendly and efficient team... More

A complete highlight on our garden route honeymoon! Unmatched service and style that we can't wait to return to for our future anniversaries! Can not be faulted. The hosts and staff are just the right amount of "present" and the stunning linens and finishing touches are really special. The breakfasts are particularly good and no request is too much trouble.... More
