“Beautiful setting, rooms and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Stayed here for two nights as part of our mini garden route adventure. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too great in knysna. However, the large beautiful owner's suite with a balcony overlooking the lagoon, breakfast in our room, a spacious bathroom and quiet setting were all more than we could ask for. Highly recommended!!

Ross and Bianca have got it all covered here. Menu for out door activities with their recommendation, menu for ordering in (which someone will do for you), unbelievable breakfast spread, heated bathroom flooring ( never seen that before ), jacquasi, fabulous view, amazing staff.

Do not miss the chocolates dipped in strawberry, pester bianca to give that to you regularly.

She will gladly oblige and be more than happy.

Bianca and Ross are wonderful people and Villa Afrikana is superb.

The Noetzie suite was special in its pristine views on the bay and the knysna heads. Lovely to see the sun rise and dusk from the room. Hosts Ross and Bianca are very warm and friendly. The breakfast is most elegant and exceptional. Recommend this as a stopover to do Tsitsikama too- 3 nights is a must here!

Room Tip: Combination of best views, service and personalized touch!

Never try to stay in any place other than Villa Afrikana when visiting South Africa. Ross and Bianca AND Staff made it a fantastic experience. In some places you get excellent service but at Villa Afrikana it is consistent! Every day the same magical and professional service that made us feel special. Grazie mille!!

Not only was our room amazing (Noetzie Suite) but so was the hospitality and service. Bianca, Ross and their staff take a great pleasure in helping out their guests and looking after their needs.
We had a very nice stay at Villa Afrikana and would definitely recommend it.

Thanks to Bianca and staff for such a love stay at your beautiful hotel. We were only there for one night for a stopover on the Garden Route an you were so hospitable!! We hit a slight glitch with the hot water but you rectified this immediately and on our return from dinner we found a box of chocolates which was not at all necessary!!! Bless you!! You are all do friendly and the breakfast was so delicious and filling that we didn't eat again till 4pm that evening!!!
Thanks again and I can see why you are number one on this!!!

Beautiful stay at villa afrikana. We were treated like a royal family but always with a great kindness and simplicity. Bianca and Ross make you feel better than home. Great breakfasts with fresh local fruits and lovely cappucinos. Our children loved the warm welcomes of Lovemore, Beauty Steven and the other member of a always smiling staff. Thank to all of you and like Arnold Schwarzenegger said : We'll be back....
