Paradise Heads
Ranked #64 of 111 Specialty Lodging in Knysna
Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

Very nice place, like the room we stayed in - view right down the lagoon to the heads.

But please don't think that this establishment is situated at the actual knysna heads, its a distance away from the heads ( by the Total petrol station as you come in to town).

The parking is a bit tight, but what i liked is the personal touch of the owner bringing our breakfast to our room herself, they are warm and made our stay really nice - it felt like i was at home.

Stayed: February 2014, traveled as a couple

Although the facilities were not state of the art, they were clean and more than adequate for our needs. Within walking distance of the waterfront with all it's restaurants and bars and amazing views over the lagoon. We couldn't have asked for a better location and our hosts were brilliant! Nothing was too much trouble.

My husband and I stayed here in Room 4 for one night as we travelled through and got a warm welcome. The room was comfortable, spotless and had a little balcony. The view overlooking the water was superb. It's not on the main street, but it's very close to the town - just a short walk away.

Eddie and Barbara were absolutely great hosts during our four days stay in Knysna. This self catering establishment offered great views of the Knysna Lagoon and Heads; was clean; comfortable and great value. The owners organised us vouchers at Local Restaurants and recommended some of the best activities we have ever done with Garden Route Boating Adventures. Highly recommended for a great value visit in Knysna.

Room Tip: Room number 6 is great for bigger groups.
