A beautiful suite with matchless views. Very well appointed and very comfortable. The staff were exemplary in performance and attitude and were cheerful at all times. No hesitation in making this gem a star for other travellers. I hope that we can return - soon !

Beautiful location. Amazing staff the friendliest we have encountered on our visit. Beautiful room and owners who care. We loved our visit and want to return on our next visit to South Africa. My husband was particularly delighted that his car was cleaned before we departed- what a treat!

As ever Ross and Bianca were absolutely superb. They can never do enough for you. The property has fantastic views over the Knysna Lagoon. Almost a must to go and see. The car washing is also a nice touch.

The view from our room was incredible but that was only part of the attraction to Villa Africana. We chose it because it was number one with Trip Advisor and whilst I do not always agree with Trip on this occasion they were absolutely bang on.

Fantastic, but don't spread it around otherwise I won't be able to return for a third time. Views from the top are fantastic when having breakfast. Staff are so friendly and helpful little touches are appreciated. Best place we have ever stayed

We spent one week in Villa Afrikana. Service, location and all staff are outstanding. We have strongly appreciated the very friendly service and treatment of the owners and all staffs. The room with beautiful views are excellent. Bianca and Ross have created a little paradise in Knysna. They would deserve more than 5 stars! ******
