We stayed 3 days with Jenny and Chris in January. It was very pleasant to stay at Paradise Found - the view is amazing and the room, breakfast and neighboorhood have been great. They have a good wireless lan connection, too. We did have some trouble finding the place the first night as our GPS kept didnt know about Loerie Street (where you'd turn to get there) and kept sending us back to Loerie Road. If you follow the directions you are provided with by Jenny and dont rely on your GPS you will be fine, though :)

Our heartfelt thanks to Jenny and Chris who provided us with such a warm and welcoming stay at Paradise Found. Hosts who are truly passionate about the town in which they live are always such a joy to meet. If and when we return to Knysna, we'll be sure to visit the Dalys once again. Thanks a million for making our make-shift honeymoon so enjoyable.

Paradise found...what an apt name! Hubby and I enjoyed our two week stay at Paradise Found run and owned by Chris and Jenny Daly. Both went out of their way to make our stay memorable. They were informative about what one should see and do, accommodating, friendly, warm and personable in every way. Hubby and I stayed in the self-catering apartment, which was serviced daily, fresh flowers greeted us on a regular basis. The view as they say is "Heavenly" There is secure parking on the property and one is able to sleep safe and sound. We loved everything about it so much that we went ahead and have booked our stay for December 2013...same time...same place. We look forward to seeing our wonderful hosts once again year end. Until then, Jenny and Chris, have a blessed year and thank you once again for everything. Deb and Leon. xxx

I can wholeheartedly confirm the recent comments of other guests who have enjoyed their stay at this delightful guest house. Both Jenny and Chris go overboard to make their guests feel at home. They are a mine of information about local sights, restaurants and beauty spots. The quality of the rooms is excellent and the view and the garden is wonderful. For my wife and I, it was a special thrill to watch multicolored sunbirds sip sugared water alongside our balcony. In all, hard to beat for warmth, quality and good value. Highly recommended!

Excellent value for money. Soft spoke owner/manager Jenny is a gem, bakes wonderful scones. Husband Chris is an excellent photographer and the friendliest and keenest to help point out good photographic opportunities in the area. Heartiest hospitality, go and see for yourself, it is home from home

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the Heads

We stayed one night in Paradise Found during our honeymoon, and enjoyed it very much!
The room is clean and nice, and the view of the lagoon is amazing,
even from bed!
excellent breakfast is served in the patio watching the lagoon,
hand made by the host, Jenny, which was very nice and helpful.
Jenny also very interesting to talk with, and gave us great tips for the trip and for life!
very recomended!

We stayed at Paradise Found in October and had a very enjoyable 2 day stay. Breakfast from the table on the patio was wonderful, especially the beautiful home baked scones still warm from the oven. The weather was cool and overcast so we didn't get to see Knysna lagoon at its best but the location is fantastic. Jenny was very helpful with suggestions on the best places to go in the limited time we had and the scenery at the Heads is dramatic, best viewed from the patio of the East Heads cafe.
