“Amazing”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We were recommended to visit Villa Africana by friends and we can understand why. What an amazing place. To start with the views are incredible but then you have Ross and Bianca and a wonderful team of staff looking after you in ever way. Every detail thought of. The rooms are so spacious and having breakfast on your balcony is a joy.

Top marks to Ross and Bianca for making our stay so memorable.

Already planning next years stay.

Villa Afrikaner was simply the perfect place to stay. The whole complex has been created with great imagination, the suites are all beautifully appointed, impeccably clean and designed to make guests' comfort and convenience the highest priority.

We had three superb days and left wanting more, which will be the case next time. Bianca and Ross are the most welcoming hosts and have clearly trained their staff to reflect their own high standards of care for their visitors. We found nowhere better in our three weeks on the Garden Route.

We fell in love with this place from the minute we entered our room, beautifully furnished and equipped, with stunning views of the Knysna 'Heads'. Ross and Bianca were the perfect hosts and their staff could not have been more helpful. We will be back!

Thank you Bianca & Ross for making our stay at Villa Afrikana so memorable. We had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Phantom suite which was truly fantastic. The views over the lagoon were just amazing. The service was impeccable & the staff always smiling. Breakfast on the terrace every morning with a smile from Lovemore & Beauty was such a lovely start to the day.....and the little treats every evening when we came back from our night out were very special....no five star hotel could match that....and then at breakfast on valentines day, how lovely when Steven gave me a red rose! And to Tracy, thank you for arranging our taxis each day & Constance for bringing us our champagne each evening and to all the other staff that made things just so special....thank you to you all...we'll be back

We stayed for one night en route along the garden route- what a mistake - we should have stayed much longer! Ross, Bianca and their team made our stay truly memorable. Every detail of our stay was absolute perfection. This is by far the best place we have ever stayed and I hope to be able to return for a much longer stay.

From the minute we drove in we knew it would be a special experience. We were greeted by the owners Bianca and Ross and shown around their beautiful, minimalist, but welcoming guesthouse. We were asked if we would like a drink delivered to our room and promptly had a bottle of Champagne delivered (maybe because it was our anniversary?) The room was beautiful with a very large, super comfortable bed and with a huge terrace overlooking Knysna Heads. The chic black marble bathroom with large shower was decorated with rose petals - beautiful. Lovely toiletries.

We had our breakfast served on our terrace and this was delicious and perfectly presented.

The room, general decor of the house, hospitality of the owners and service from the staff was 5 star, together with the most fantastic views.
