It is my 2nd stay at Villa Paradisa and I can highly recommend it. The rooms are luxurious and beautifully decorated, the beds are comfortable and the complimentary items and generous. The view from our room and the dining area overlooking Knysna is breathtaking. And lastly the breakfast prepared by Martin is top class and worth coming back for.

Lovely! Room was a little chilly when whatever arrived but seemed to be warmer the next evening after leaving the heat on during the day. Martin's breakfast both mornings were wonderful and the presentation delightful! Marilyn was charming, helpful, and directed us in all the right directions for our visit in Knysna.

Villa is well positioned, just a short drive to the Knysna Waterfront with a wonderful view of the Lagoon and Heads. Staff and the owners were very friendly and the food was splendid. Great place to stay along the Garden Route.

Fantastic view in a woderfull place towards the heads of Knysna, the Villa is very well located close to the bay, the service is very good, and the rooms and living rooms have view to the bay, the breakfast is more than enough.

We stayed for two nights on our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. The house is incredibly beautiful and offers great views over the lagoon. The owners were so friendly and helped us to decide on activities in Knysna which was great. Villa Paradisa was more expensive than other places we stayed in SA, but it was a brilliant experience

Perched up on the hill looking down at Knysna lagoon. Great views. Highly recommend cracking into the honestly fridge, pouring a few white wines, then sitting in the outdoor jacuzzi and taking in the view. That was a highlight for us. The rooms were very good. Spacious, quiet, everything you could need. Very relaxing. It’s around a 10 minute drive... More
