From the pictures we’d seen, and the reports we’d heard, we knew Villa Afrikana was going to be special. This really was the highlight of our trip. The location on the hill (in Paradise) provides glorious views of the heads and is perfectly located to allow exploration of all the areas in Knysna. The décor-magazine interiors are white, unspoiled and... More

Villa Afrikana is set on a hill right over the bay with views directly of the Knysna heads. Spacious rooms (huge!!!), modern design, outstanding breakfast served directly on your private balcony (if you like), and very attentive staff. The service is best in class. R&B are welcoming and friendly hosts.

Sitting in our private balcony for breakfast and looking out at the lagoon was the best way to start our day. The... More

A very warm welcome from wonderful hosts. A real delight. Thoroughly enjoyed having breakfast on our balcony looking at the great views whilst down below our car was being washed! Wonderful service - thanks for adding so greatly to our honeymoon

What a fantastic place, nothing compared to this place throughout our 3 wk Honeymoon in SA. Bianca and Ross are genuinely great hosts and it is the attention to detail that matters. Impeccably high standards of cleanliness, decor and service. This is the place to stay............we will definately return, 2 days was not long enough!!

We stayed 2 nights in one of the suites. It was a short holiday escape from buzzing Cape Town and well worth the trip. The suite was very spacious with stunning lagoon views. Off street parking, spacious and well maintained grounds, large pool, good breakfast, a cappucino upon arrival. Bianca and Ross are excellent hosts and the soft spoken staff... More

And the quality of the service was exceptional. It is so clear from the moment you arrive that Bianca and Ross have one aim - to make your stay at their hotel as comfortable and as easy as it possibly can be. Enormous attention to detail has gone into the design and decor, and the pride that Stephen and his... More

Paradise is the area in Knysna and without any question PARADISE is the Villa Afrikana where we have just spent a week indulging in the most amazing accommodation and pampered by such attention and service given by our hosts Ross & Bianca and the marvellous staff.
