Villa Mulligan
Ranked #58 of 127 Knysna B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 May 2011

We recently visited and stayed in Villa Mulligan with family and friends. Marcus our host at the Villa was most welcoming and happy to oblige to our many needs! The property is located on a hilltop overlooking the Knysna lagoon. The villa has one of the best views that I have ever seen in my extensive travels. The lagoon waters look magnificent in dawns light and changes character throughout the day. The grounds are superbly maintained with mature trees, a swimming pool and carefully crafted and well maintained putting green! The rooms are comfortable, clean and well appointed. The interiors are well done with superb taste and nice paint touches personally crafted lovingly by the hosts themselves! Breakfast is of a high quality and again benefits from Markus's personal touch. Wifi is free, Bar is well stocked! Emma the housekeeper is very professional and competent! Markus is an avid golfer who was kind enough to take me for a round of golf!

Looking back on our third visit to South Africa, my wife and I agreed that the accommodation at this delightful bed and breakfast in Knysna, was the best we had encountered. The rooms are clean, spacious, comfortable and beautifully appointed. Breakfasts are delicious with a wide variety of fresh fruit, breads, cereals, juices, tea and coffee sitting alongside cooked meals if required. Breakfast can be taken on a wide terrace overlooking Knysna Lagoon, the distant Knysna Heads and the sea beyond.
Stunning views all round.
The lounge area - again tastefully appointed and decorated - is a perfect area for relaxation in the evening; listen to music, sip your wine, chat to friends......
Markus and Kris are friendly, gracious hosts; their attention to detail, the warmth of their manner and the many ways in which they offered help, combined to make our stay really enjoyable.
The Villa is in a lovely setting. The pool area is set in beautiful landscaped gardens and for golfers, there is an added attraction in the form of a golf green below the terrace; Markus is keen, he will help you with your putting.
An excellent place to stay; you will not be disappointed if you visit Villa Mulligan.

We booked Villa Mulligan for one night after having seen an advertisement in the German travel magazine "Reise und Preise" and we were so happy about our choice, that we changed our travel plans to get another night there!
The situation above The Knysna Lagoon with a view all the way out to The Heads and The Indian Ocean is breathtaking.
Breakfast is rich and varied and the fruit arranged as small works of art, a joy to the eye, and served on the huge sundeck overlooking the Lagoon.
The German hosts, Christiane and Markus are most helpful and wonderfully relaxed and they can tell you where to play golf and where to get the best oysters!
Next time we go to Knysna we`ll definitely stay at Villa Mulligan, it is highly recommendable.
PS. Free internet!

We travelled from Canberra,Australia with two teenagers to Villa Mulligan. It was almost the end of our trip in South Africa and we needed to unwind and be spoilt! And spoilt we were by our wonderful host, Markus. I am a fussy traveller but the accommodation and service were just amazing. The surroundings most peaceful and nothing was too much for Markus who quietly attended to our needs. This place was certainly a highlight in our travel and would highly recommend it to anyone. Argi

My husband and I just returned from a perfectly wonderful trip driving the Garden Route of South Africa. One of the highpoints was our stay at Villa Mulligan. Marcus, our host, made our stay very special. Our room was really lovely and had a large elegant bathroom. The breakfast was brilliantly done, gorgeous and totally yummy, served on a huge deck that overlooks the Knysna Lagoon. Exotic birds flew in to say hello, we putted on a small putting green at the villa that has an amazing view, and we listened to African music that made us totally feel part of the African culture. Markus set us up to play a golf course that had a view of Knysna Lagoon one one nine and the Indian Ocean on the other. Yes, this was paradise. I recommend it highly!

This was a bed and breakfast home that was truly outstanding. The service was amazing and the view was gorgeous. The rooms were beautiful. The host and hostess made special accommodations for us on several fronts. This was the best bed and breakfast type lodging I have ever stayed in anywhere in the world.
