I'm loathe to write more because then it'll become so popular you'll have to book 6 months in advance... Actually, I think we did. This is a fresh, clean, modern conversion with... More

Gracious and smiley hospitality, rooms that were spacious, clean and commanding a great view with and attached terrace. A bigger dinner menu would have been perfect as we loved to spend the evening there instead of going out again after a full day. Hats off to Rossana and Bianca for making the guests feel like they were Royalty. Each item... More

We enjoyed sundowners on our balcony overlooking the lagoon, then the staff kindly made restaurant... More

We had a lovely two night stay at the Villa Afrikana in a beautiful, clean and spacious room with a view of the bay. The staff and owners were outstanding - impeccable service and support. Excellent place to stay during a visit to the beautiful city of Knysna.
