“Aptly named - Paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2011

I would highly recommend to anyone visiting this area to stay at this luxurious "bed and breakfast". Martin & Marilyn, the owners certainly know how to treat their guests. They went far beyond the realms of B & B owners. The rooms, of which there are three, were simply outstanding and luxurious. The breakfast was to die for, Martin's poached eggs just cannot be beaten!
The view from this very luxurious "Hollywood" style home is breathtaking.
Certainly a highlight of our holiday was out stay at the Villa Paradiso.

This was one of the best accommodations we have stayed in, the hosts Martin and Marilyn made you feel so at home and went the "extra inch" to make your stay memorable.
We would certainly book again
Many thanks for fantastic memories

A Guest House with a stunishing view over the Knysna lagune and the Heads. Very stylish rooms. Especially the oister room. Marilyn and Martin are great hosts, very nice and caring. We still miss Martins great breakfast. Nice pool and resting area. You feel yourself immediately at home. We will come back for sure and recommend the place gladly to our friends. A true paradise.

Cannot say enough good things about my experience at Villa Paradisa. From the moment I arrrived, everything was perfect. Views of the entire Knysna area from your room and main living areas. Martin and Marilyn, make you feel completely at home and are very informative and helpful in deciding restaurants/activities. Fabulous breakfast..There were many special touches in the room that make this better than the top hotels we had been staying at. This is really a 5 star experience. Easy access, two minutes to town with car, shopping and restaurantes were good. Beautiful beaches not far away....that is if you want to leave the lovely pool, jacuzzi, and braai at the pool area that is right there. Would definately book again and recommend highly.

You must stay here for the most enjoyable stay and discover the best South African hospitality from Martin and Marilyn......Everything was perfect and the personel service they provided (food, wine, boat trips) was incredible, you can not put a price on that!!
I will be looking forward to going back there especially for Martins Breakfasts!!
