Johan and Dirkie are great hosts. They are so friendly and helpful and a good conversation to find out about this country is also possible. The apartment is lovely. Well equipped, very clean, equipped with everything needed to have a pleasant stay. And so quiet and a beautiful view. Despite the fact that we had not reserved breakfast, it was still possible and we were surprised with a delicious breakfast on our terrace. In short, I would go back in a heartbeat, if is was not so far away. Thank you Johan en Dirkie

The sweeping view of the Knysna estuary to the heads alone makes this place spectacular. Add the gracious hosts Johan and Dirkie, marvellous breakfasts and daily service by Onifer and Ethel and is outstanding!

A stunning, comfortable, quiet spot for the best views and sleep ever! Johan and Dirkie are fantastic hosts, both welcoming and extremely knowledgeable. From the moment we booked Johan was very communicative, and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. The breakfasts were fantastic, and the rooms are spacious, with large windows letting in lots of light. Every morning the room and bathroom were cleaned, and little things like a little fold on the toilet paper or restocking the water wasn’t unnoticed! With a 200 degree view of the Knysna lagoon and surrounding mountainside, there’s no other place I’d rather stay. Thank you Johan and Dirkie!

It is difficult to describe the stay here in a few words. I guess the simplest is to say it was tooo short... Just everything about this lovely place is superb. The rooms, the view, the facilities, the always friendly and helpful owners guiding with tips and tricks about the wide environment. The breakfast from the terrace of the room looking over the bay is extremely peaceful and the perfect start of an amazing day

Perfect! View from our room/balcony was AMAZING ! Breakfasts were plentiful, everything you could wish for was served. Rooms were spotlessly clean and contained all you could want for on holiday, even Netflix! Wifi excellent. Beds comfy. Johan and Dirkie were perfect hosts, so pleasant and informative about the area. Nothing was too much trouble for them. No load shedding as they had solar. We stayed for three nights, could have stayed three weeks! Sad to leave, but hopefully one day we will return.

We were granted a complimentary room upgrade, mindful of my need for a work-centric space, balancing both my wife's comfort and my client interactions. Imagine breakfasts where flavors burst with the sunrise, all enjoyed from a vantage point that offers spellbinding views, making minutes melt away. This sanctuary, underscored by the tranquil chorus of birds, mirrors the privacy of an island retreat. Throughout, the unparalleled attention, outstanding service, and warm hospitality of our hosts, Johan and Dirkie, truly stand out!!

Beautiful stay!! Paradise Found is a perfect place to stay in Knysna. It is close to the centre and the waterfront. The room was very pleasant, it was cozy and clean. Breakfast was excellent and incredibly varied. The team was always friendly, patient and helpful. That impressed us the most. No matter what time of day, you could turn to them with all your concerns. On our next stays, we will definitely check into Paradise Found again. The price is very good.
