Villa Paradisa epitomises everything about quality and standards. Our experience was nothing short of brilliance. A truly unforgettable stay. Marilyn & Martin were simply beautiful people. They went out of their way to accommodate us. Definitely will be back.

Villa Paradisa is spectacular and Marilyn and Martin are great hosts. When we arrived, we were awe struck by the house and the views. It would be a perfect destination for a couple on a romantic getaway or a family with older children who can appreciate natural beauty. The only negative I have is that we were travelling with a small child and the grounds are not ideal, all of which Marilyn warned us about before confirming our booking. They were both very welcoming and accommodating of our son but such a beautiful guest house is wasted on small children, not to mention Martins gourmet breakfast. Definitely a great destination for adults.

We arrived on a sadly wet and gray day but were delighted by the welcome and the care that had been taken to welcome us. A restuarant had been booked for us to accept if we wished and the following day (in beautiful sunshine) a trip and another eating place organised for us.

This stay was in the second week of our honeymoon trip and Marilyn not on;ly organised flowers and bubbly she aslo mentioned it to the bookings and we were treated even more with drinks and cakes. A lovely touch. Thank you

Breakfast cooked by Martin and overlooking the lagoon was also memorable.

Would recommend withour hesitation

I don't know what's better, the place or the people! Marilyn and Martin are the sweetest, most accommodating people! Marilyn greeted my husband and I after arriving from a long drive along the Cape. She offered us a glass of wine and educated us on all there was to do in the area. Breakfast in the morning was tough to beat! Martin is quite the chef and happy to feed! Our room was stunning, view was amazing, and the house was unreal. Is it time to go back yet?! Simply the best!

We primarily booked on the basis of the view but during our 4 night stay got so much more from our stay. Firstly the view is stunning, easily the best in Knysna and our room included a balcony from which to enjoy it. Beyond that our hosts, Marylin and Marty were excellent, couldn't have done more to help enjoy the area. They were always keen to guide us on where to go to meet our needs and book restaurants for us, including ones for locations on our trip. Also Marty is a fantastic cook, easily the best breakfasts we had on our 4 week trip and all while looking out over that view. Everything about here reflects it's five star rating.
