We loved our stay at Villa Afrikana. Ross and Bianca as well as all the staff were great! The views from the suite are wonderful. Real 5 star level of service with lots of little extra touches that make the stay special. Breakfasts superb, light supers are also available either in the lounge or in your suite. 20 minute walk...

We stayed here for two nights while touring the garden route. This gorgeous villa is, modern, luxurious, very spacious and tastefully decorated in contemporary African style. We received a warm welcome on our arrival from Ross and his staff and were shown to our room on the top floor, the Nietcshe suite. The views from here are quite stunning, stretching... More

About a year ago my friends asked me to join them on a magical and rather extreme trip, I answered there question and said where to? And when they told me they were going to South Africa, there was no doubt at all – I joined… So we saved up our money and finally booked our tickets and ended up... More

Wonderfully appointed suites with a breathless view on the Knysna lagoon, this is really a place we would recommend. Bright rooms, very comfortable beds, underfloor heating in the large bathrooms, with all the amenities you could need. The staff are friendly, kind and very efficient; breakfast is really great, with a wide choice of specialities. A swimming-pool and a parking... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Villa Afrikana to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my birthday. We had an incredible time and were super impressed with the quality of rooms, decor, service and finishing touches. Bianca and Rossco are attentive and generous hosts -- they gifted us cupcakes for my birthday and sparkling wine with chocolate covered... More

Our stay at Villa Afrikana Guest Suites was the best. The location is stunning, service is excellent and Knysna is a wonderful place to stay. It is just a short drive to the waterfront where we took a nice cruise on a catamaran to Knysna Heads.

Stayed here in March 2010 with my wife and another couple. We were touring the garden route, and this was the first time we had stayed in guest houses rather than hotels as we had done on a previous visit three years before. What a beautiful house. We felt like we were staying in a photo shoot for an architectural... More

My wife and I were made to feel very welcome at this modern boutique accomodation located in a quiet street a few minutes drive from Knysna town centre. The suite was large, well appointed with a lovely view of the waterfront. Even though we arrived late they prepared a fresh dinner, and then when we left a couple of days... More

It's pretty hard to explain in words how impressive our stay at Villa Afrikana was. We stayed for 4 wonderful nights in early April and staying here was the highlight of our trip to SA. We stayed in the Noziete Suite on the top floor, which has a nice balcony to with a nice cuppa, or simply to take in... More
