Great view on the lagoon .. great breakfast..lovley pool
The views were lovely, the location was 5 minutes from the Harbour area with restaurants etc. The facilities in the room were clean and modern. In general a pleasant stay.
The driveway is quite steep which means you get beautiful views due to it but some people might find this awkward to drive up. The staff came into our room whilst we were out to dinner and tidied everything we had left out and put everything back to how it looked when we arrived so I am not sure exactly why they had come into our room. This felt very intrusive and I felt uncomfortable.
Everything is absolutely fabulous.! Would definitely recommend Villa Paradisa to friends and family.
The hosts, Marilyn and Martin, were fantastic. They were friendly, accommodating and could not do enough to make our stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. The view from the anywhere in the guesthouse is suberb! Our room had a large balcony and a magnificent lagoon facing view. The rooms are kept clean and tidy at all times and fresh towels were always available. The location is also very convenient with ample parking. Breakfast was delicious and the experience was a real home away from home.
There was not much to dislike about this magnificent guest house. The only negative was that the wifi allowed only intermittent connectivity.
location simpathy facilities breakfast all the finest taste details Highly recommended
Difficulties with GPS
Everything was absolutely perfect. Marilyn is in charge of everything, with very good attention for detail. Martin's breakfast is fabulous. Whatever you want, they take care of it. Very welcoming and friendly, for example on my birthday (restaurant reservartions, bottle of champagne and flowers in the room). You feel at home immediately. Luxury rooms and nice view over the Knysna Heads.
Fantastic view, great breakfasts, enjoyed sociable set up with communal table at breakfast. Helpful owners who booked restaurants for us. Underfloor heating in room and bathroom was very impressive. Room lovely, very comfortable bed. Nice and quiet
Drive way quite steep to get car up, took a bit of getting used to Nothing else
Booked on the basis if the reviews and the views. We got the views, absolutely spectacular and a lot more. Our hosts were fantastic, fun to get to know and really helped us get the best out of our stay in the area. Beyond that Marty's cooking was a level above anywhere we stayed in our 4 weeks. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Villa Paradisa to others.
Stunning view, great breakfast, nice and big room, perfect service and nice hosts. We liked everything!
Stunning view from the villa
Didn't like the terrace outside the room overlooking their car park
Great views over the bay
The cooked breakfast needs improving
The site of the room
Very comfortable room.
WiFi was not secured with a password so everybody in the neighborhood had access. This made internet access very slow. However, Marilyn endeavored to get her router setup with a password and it will probably be fine here shortly.
Villa Paradisa deserves a category higher than excellent for a review.. one of the best experiences we have had on holiday - right from the outset, the location ..the infinity pool, the jacuzzi looking out onto the gorgeous view of the ocean and the most beautiful room take your breath away. All little details are taken care of to the smallest of details.. we were there on honeymoon and on our first evening there we had sparkling wine set up near the Jacuzzi for us . The breakfast deserves a Michelin star for the presentation , the flavour , the quality of ingredients. We would most certanily go back here just to be with the hospitable hosts who go out of their way for recommendations, making reservations for you and helpful with whatever one would require. A fabulous stay and highly recommended to friends and family.
The couple who ran this guest house were very hospitable and the breakfasts are always superb! The views are absolutely breathtaking and the guesthouse is very well presented with an excellent eye for detail. Many thanks to Marilyn and Martin for a great stay!
Marilyn and Martin are treating guests as friends and there for you feel like home from the beginning. Great view to Knysna bay.
??? can`t find anything
Perfect place to stay in Knysna. A warm welcome from the host and everything was beautiful.
Fantastic guesthouse in a fantastic location high on the hill at Knysna, overlooking the waterfront and the Heads. The room was immaculate and the underfloor heating was wonderful. We arrived late but this didn't seem to worry Marilyn who welcomed us and then made us dinner reservations. The bed was fantastic and the little chocolates on the pillows was a lovely touch. Will definitely be going back.
Location,location and location.
- The Paradisa is a wonderful place to stay. - You must try Martin's spicy eggs with bacon! - The hosts are very friendly and helpful. - Perfect view!
A gem in the Eastern Cape, truly the best Lodge we stayed during our trip of South Africa. Villa Paradisa is extremely well appointed and has stunning views. The Management are fantastic and go out of their way to cater to your needs. I would recomend this Guest House to anybody stopping in Knysna, it will make your visit to the city much more special.
