Dear Johan and Zita,

This is the first chance that I have been able to write a letter of thanks. (First week back at work was hectic)

I just want to THANK YOU for your warm and friendly hospitality. Paradise House is beautiful and your breakfasts were fresh and lovely. Thank you as well for the gift for my daughter Morgan; she is still sticking them on the windows.

Hope to see you again.
Tania

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Rooms nice,views great,hosts very pleasant. Some dust/dirty under bed (was checking floor as I dropped something).
Breakfast a disappointment when you have a long way to go.

Was going to stay again and asked if we could have full english breakfast and was told this is not an option although there are nice restaurants in Knysna who do breakfast.

Not what I wanted to hear as we have a long trip and don't need to go elsewhere for breakfast.

Room Tip: The rooms that overlook the lagoon.

We had a Lovely stay at Paradise House. Had a bit of trouble with the steep driveway but with a little help we got it! The room was very nice. The bed was a bit small but That shouldn't be a problem if you are a couple... Breakfast was a bit disappointing but otherwise it was very good with very nice owners.

Excellent place to stay in Knysna. Johan and Zita were excellent hosts. Extremely clean room (we stayed in an enormous brand new room downstairs) which had a fabulous view of the estuary. The room itself was a little cool-- we were there in the heart of winter-- but Zita provided a very warm space heater, and we were lucky with beautiful blue sky weather.

Luxury accomodation in a fabulous setting. Close to town but also quiet and peaceful.
Large comfortable rooms with en suite bathrooms and the best shower ever!
Continental breakfast. Healthily and hearty to prepare you for a day out.

Room Tip: All rooms are outstanding.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

We had room no. 4 - spacious, great view onto the lagoon and the Knysna Heads (in theory, it was raining, when we were there).
Mind you you have to "pay" for the great view, the way up there is relatively steep, so walking to town and then back up that hill is not always fun.
Johan and Zita were very helpful and friendly, but not too pushy.
Room and bathroom was very clean, a normal sized fridge fridge (not one of those tiny barfridges), wineglasses etc. were provided... absolutely recommendable.
