“Great holiday in Knysna”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

We really enjoyed the days in a wonderful guest house. Service was excellent, welcoming and proactive.

Rooms and view are outstanding.

And the best: breakfast!!!!!

We will consider it again for one of our next holidays.

Villa Africana was an absolute delight. Our room was spacious with a fantastic view. Breakfast each day on the terrace was superb. The hosts and staff were so helpful and friendly- we wanted for nothing.

Room Tip: Noetze was a lovely room, but there are quite a lot of stairs!

We visited Villa Afrikana for the second year in a row and found the experience even better than the previous year and this we would not have considered possible. Ross and Bianca's attention to detail had not diminished in the slightest and the whole ambience of the villa is one of efficiency and wonderful hospitality. The staff are most attentive and always wear a smile. The views and location of the Villa are unsurpassable. We shall be queuing up to visit again next year.

Villa Africana is a wonderful place to stay - it is a spacious, modern hotel and especially Bianca and Ross with their staff are caring in a very special way for you. Breakfast on the balcony with overlooking the lagoon was one of the highlights of our stay and we got fantastic dinner recommendations from Bianca. We can recommend this place to everyone - it was really the most relaxing stay during our whole south africa trip- We will definitely come back!

We had a fantastic stay, breakfast on the balcony was a real highlight and i can recommend the French toast.

We also got great tips for things to do while we were there and all members of staff were keen to help with taxis and bookings.

We were recommended to visit Villa Africana by friends and we can understand why. What an amazing place. To start with the views are incredible but then you have Ross and Bianca and a wonderful team of staff looking after you in ever way. Every detail thought of. The rooms are so spacious and having breakfast on your balcony is a joy.

Top marks to Ross and Bianca for making our stay so memorable.

Already planning next years stay.

Villa Afrikaner was simply the perfect place to stay. The whole complex has been created with great imagination, the suites are all beautifully appointed, impeccably clean and designed to make guests' comfort and convenience the highest priority.

We had three superb days and left wanting more, which will be the case next time. Bianca and Ross are the most welcoming hosts and have clearly trained their staff to reflect their own high standards of care for their visitors. We found nowhere better in our three weeks on the Garden Route.
