Very nice and friendly family! Nice location and excelent room! Highly recommended! The checkin experince was lovely, the made us feel as home. The breakfast is amazing, you order it the day before and you can even have it served in your room for free. They also have a good selection of DVDs to serve yourself.

A wonderful two nights were spent at South Villa. The room was perfect with a balcony. Great breakfast made to order. Will definitely use this guest house again when in the area. We have used many guest houses in the area and this one is one of the best.

We had a wonderful stay in Knysna for the Oyster Festival at South Villa. From the moment we arrived we received a warm welcome from the owners, with lots of useful recommendations for sites and restaurants in the area. Would definitely recommend staying here.

The service and stay experience was more pleasant than previous accommodation where we stayed. Service was excellent and staff and host very friendly. The room was nice and clean with breath taking views and breakfast was excellent each morning. The location is central and near shops and Waterfront. I would recommend this Guest house to anyone.
