We spent 3 nights in Villa Afrikana and would have loved to stay longer. This guesthouse is close to perfection - great design, fantastic views, extremely helpful owners and very friendly staff plus a wounderful breakfast. Everything shows a focus on detail and one would wish that more guesthouses could be like this one.

Really nice stay facilities great and staff extremely helpful. We did feel a little over attended to with staff continually asking if they could do anything for us. Other than that a wonderful place to stay with helpful staff and owners. 20min walk downhill to the harbour and restaurants. Recommend jjs restaurant food great.

We spent 3 nights in Villa Africana on our honeymoon trip through South Africa. The owners and the staff were very friendly and helpful with recommendations for daily activities and nearby restaurants. We enjoyed the brilliant breakfast in our room overlooking the lagoon. The view was breathtaking. We had a really relaxing time there. This truly is paradise.

My family and I spent two nights at centrally located Villa Afrikana in an adjoining suite. The rooms were beautifully decorated with many small, luxury touches that made us feel completely pampered and thoroughly enjoy our stay. The owner Ross was so kind with our children and welcoming, and the service was just amazing. We were greeted with espresso and... More

Apolgoies this review is well overdue we stayed February this year. The moment we arrived we knew we had made the right choice. Ross & Bianca greeted us with warm towels and a lovely cold glass of wine. Our luggage was taken care of immediately and this level of service continued during the whole stay. Owners Ross and Bianca know... More

This review is long overdue, not because we haven't thought of Knysna and the Villa Afrikana often. We stayed there for 4 nights in November 2013 as part of a month long trip to South Africa. Bianca and Ross have gotten everything right. The beautiful spacious rooms have lovely views and simple elegant furnishings. There is such a warm friendly... More

We felt really well looked after from the moment we arrived, the staff were incredibly friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed - and more! Breakfast on our patio overlooking the lagoon was very special - the food was great and the view spectacular! The bed was slightly on the hard side... More

Upon arriving we were greeted with warm towels and welcome drinks. Attention to detail began immediately. Everyday we had afternoon drinks and snacks. Owners Ross and Bianca catered to our every need with style. Views from our room was stunning. Hotel staff were attentive and helpful. Try to get a room on the upper floors. Great value too.

We have stayed in many nice B&Bs but Villa Afrikana is among the best from the standpoint of luxury and service. The staff is always available to cater to your every need, from assisting you to park when you arrive to preparing and serving a wonderful breakfast. The home itself is top notch, modern, and made with first quality materials.... More

An excellent place to stay in Knysna. Our stay was all too short. Owners and staff were welcoming and friendly and service was excellent. The room was superbly appointed with a stunning view from our balcony of the Knysna lagoon and Heads. Nothing was too much for Ross, Bianca and staff and we would certainly stay there again if ever... More
