“Fantastic accommodation to start our South Africa trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

We spent our first 2 nights in South Africa at Villa Paradisa and cannot recommend it highly enough.

We had 2 rooms for our family of four which worked really well.

Lovely rooms, heated floors. High end bathrooms. Fantastic views. Tasty breakfasts and really friendly hosts and staff (and cat!).

Marilyn and Martin did us proud - a fantastic start to our 2 week South African trip!

Many thanks to both of you.

This was our 1st stay at Villa Paradisa & what an awesome time we had. I was looking for a special place to take my lovely wife of 30 years, to celebrate our anniversary & could not have chosen a better place. The excellent Oyster suite (with champagne, flowers & lovely touches splendidly arranged by Marilyn) was a perfect setting for the occasion with views of the Knysna lagoon, waterfront & heads from just about anywhere in the open plan room (even the shower & spa bath which we enjoyed very much). Marilyn & Martin are the perfect hosts (warm & caring) & Martin the most incredible chef, his creativity at breakfast blew us away. A stunning stay. We will be back!!!!

Room Tip: Oyster suite perfect for couples & honeymooners

We stayed in this hotel on the way to Cape Town. The hotel is located on a hill, so the view is great. That was the reason why we chose this place, but except the view we also found nice rooms, convenient parking, good service and great people there. Martin and Marilyn are very kind and friendly, and Martin is a magic chef! At the day of our arrival there was my husband's birthday and we had a barbeque on a terrace. The food was excellent and so delicious, there were various sorts of meat, fish and sauces made by Martin himself. We have never eaten anything like this before! So was the breakfast. The rooms are clean, convenient, have all facilities you need and other fine stuff. We hadn't any problems there, and we feel sorry of staying for one night only in that hotel. We would like to come back there once.
