This place had the one of the most amazing views of any place I have stayed! On a hill, straight out on to the lagoon and town, with the Knysna heads directly in front of you. We stayed in a double room that was very spacious and clean with a lovely balcony overlooking said view. Chris was very friendly and... More

Great views from hillside location out over the Keys name estuary out towards the Heads. Good central location close to shops and restaurants. Friendly and informative host. Had to be careful on wooden stairs leading up to the unit.

Absolutely loved my stay. Chris and Jenny were friendly and welcoming hosts. Location is everything and it was great to be near the cycle starts. Knysna is always cold this time but the warm heated rooms and bed when we arrived was a real blessing.

Traveling from Namibia to experience Knysna was the best choice, maybe not best choice in weather but definitely best choice in destination. Jenny and her husband are beyond friendly and make the stay truly pleasant. Rooms felt very homely and warm. We definitely coming back.

We stayed at 8 different establishments during our March trip to the Cape We went on business as well as having a holiday in between the business meetings. This was the best establishment by far- an absolute gem. Cleanliness, comfort and the best food.

We had a wonderful time. Perfect for some rest and relaxation. The information provided was helpful, and we enjoyed exploring Knysna from such a tranquil and beautiful base. We would recommend Paradise Found to anyone looking for a break, and we hope to return soon.

Perfect hosts, wonderful room and awesome views. Chris and Sally were lovely hosts and could not do enough to make our stay memorable. Our room had spectacular views over the Knysna Lagoon and was clean and well appointed with a lovely balcony. Thank you so much Chris and Sally.

Perfect for my needs. Felt safe and well looked after. Small friendly B&B 😊 As promised I woke up to the panoramic view over the lagoon towards The Heads. Very quiet and peaceful location. The facilities are not luxurious, but this was reflected in the price.
