Reviewed January 10, 2011

A Guest House with a stunishing view over the Knysna lagune and the Heads. Very stylish rooms. Especially the oister room. Marilyn and Martin are great hosts, very nice and caring. We still miss Martins great breakfast. Nice pool and resting area. You feel yourself immediately at home. We will come back for sure and recommend the place gladly to our friends. A true paradise.

Cannot say enough good things about my experience at Villa Paradisa. From the moment I arrrived, everything was perfect. Views of the entire Knysna area from your room and main living areas. Martin and Marilyn, make you feel completely at home and are very informative and helpful in deciding restaurants/activities. Fabulous breakfast..There were many special touches in the room that make this better than the top hotels we had been staying at. This is really a 5 star experience. Easy access, two minutes to town with car, shopping and restaurantes were good. Beautiful beaches not far away....that is if you want to leave the lovely pool, jacuzzi, and braai at the pool area that is right there. Would definately book again and recommend highly.

You must stay here for the most enjoyable stay and discover the best South African hospitality from Martin and Marilyn......Everything was perfect and the personel service they provided (food, wine, boat trips) was incredible, you can not put a price on that!!
I will be looking forward to going back there especially for Martins Breakfasts!!

Best view of Knysna lagoon, top of a hill, but very close to town and waterfront.
Truly 5-star treatment, and luxury.
The hosts are very friendly and do their best to make your stay unforgettable.
Excellent breakfasts!
Oyster room has a jacuzzi, if you want some extra fun :)
Private balcony with beautiful view of lagoon and Knysna town, stunning even at night.
This is the place to stay for honeymoon, or if you want to spoil yourself.

On a trip across the Garden Route, our stay at villa Paradisa was a highlight! Marilyn and Martin were great at offering insider tips, laying on bubbly in the jacuzzi and generally making us sad to leave. The view across town is breathtaking, the room was gorgeous and the breakfasts brilliant, especially the special South African breakfast martin made us. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend and will hopefully be able to go back
