The best hospitality and we felt the true warmth that Knysna is famous for! Location its located in a good surbub but I expected it to be a little bit more, but it was a beautiful guest house. The warm hospitality from the owners added much more value! Warm and kind people we felt at home!

We stayed for 3 nights in october 2011 in the comfortable room with a beautiful vieuw on the lagoon.
After the lovely breakfast, Zita and Johan gave us very usefull tips about good restaurants and trips. They are very willing to arange excursions. We made an impossant excursion to the township from Knysna, which made a big impression on us and change our way of thinking in a positive way about townships in South Africa. We are gratefull for this tip.

we stayed at paradise house for a couple of nights in Oct 2011. Zeta was very kind to offer us a room at a special price. The room was very comfortable and clean, location of B&B was very nice, although our view of the lagoon was not that good from the room we had, but overall it was great. The breakfast in the morning was nice and healthy. The hosts were wonderful. The b&B is very close to waterfront and other areas of attraction in Knysna is good too. Johan gave us a good tip to drive upto the knysna heads right on the top for a spectacular view of the ocean.

We stayed here for 3 nights in mid-July and were the only guests in the place. Because of that, Johann made sure to give us the room with the best view (#4) and what a view it was! The entire Knysna lagoon in front of you uninterrupted - stunning! This was our last stop on the garden route before flying back to my sister in Johannesburg and it was the perfect spot to relax (on the last day we came back to the room after lunch to rest for a few hours before dinner). The one main drawback is the height that grants the place the spectacular view. It is not far from the waterfront (less than 2 Km) but there is a VERY steep incline to reach the house, so you pretty much have to drive to get any where (this fact was told to us in advance).

We had two night at the Paradise House in March 2011 and they were great. While showing us the rooms we were exalted by the view out of the room. If you go to Paradise House try to get the room from which you have the beautiful view to the lagoon. Our travelling companion did not close the curtains in the night to have the view while getting awake!
With Zeta and Johan you will get wonderful hosts who will care about you. They are giving good recommendations about what to do and where to eat. They serve a wonderful breaksfast for a good start into the day.
If we come back to Knysna we would stay there!

Room Tip: Choose the room with the lagoon view!
