We stayed in the Sea Urchin Suite for two nights on our trip to game reserves outside of Port Elizabeth. The views were specular from our suite and patio. The attention to detail in the suite was amazing.
Marilyn is a very gracious hostess. She was able to book a table on short notice for a Saturday night at the highly rated Pembleys. All of the guests we met at Villa Paradisa had stayed there in the past. It is truly a gem!

Ou hosts, Marilyn & Martin and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The views from the property were superb. Amazing choice for breakfast. Marilyn was very helpful recommending and booking different activities for us. Some of which had discounts when booked through Paradisa.
The property itself is a joy to spend a few days in, both warm and relaxing. Everything you could wish for.

All I can say is WOW. This is a guest house of the highest standard, from the tasteful décor to amazing welcome from Marylyn, Martin and their staff.

The room (the Coral Suit) was fantastic, with a good comfy bed, it was nice and warm (air con in the summer). We sat in bed and looked over the amazing view and it was really romantic. There is a large balcony that we made use of with comfy sofa and table and chairs. The bathroom was large with really good facilities.

Breakfast was amazing, in the dining room looking over the lagoon, it has at a large table where you eat with and meet the other guests.

Unfortunately the weather was not up to a dip, but the pool deck is like some celebrity hangout again looking over the lagoon.

Over all, Villa Paradisa has stylish comfortable accommodation with very welcoming and friendly owners. We would defiantly visit again.

Lovely place, lovely people, Martin and Marilyn amazing hosts , the ladies that work there so helpful and friendly... almost forgot about friendly cat :) . Stayed here with my wife for her birthday and I asked Marilyn to arrange something romantic in our room, my wife was blown away, I scored a few points :) , the wine, cheese platter and chocolates. We had great time in the Jacuzzi with the most beautiful view of Knysna from the top. The breakfast at this place WOW! Everything felt so homely . If you plan to visit Knysna I definitely recommend that you stay at this place.
