Paradise Found is the home of Johan and Dirkie in the aptly named suburb of Paradise, which overlooks the beautiful Knysna Lagoon. It offers comfortable 3 Star B&B or Self-catering accommodation. All units have private entrances and off street parking and all rooms have a truly magnificent view of Knysna, the Waterfront, the lagoon and the famous Knysna Heads.

This place is such a great find. I don't think any other view would have be better. The balcony has a great view, the living room has a great view and the actual bedroom also has a full great view. It's 5-10mins from the restaurants, shops and main attractions at Kynsna. Johan (the owner) was very accommodating and quick and patient to reply to any queries. We will definitely stay here again!

The location overlooking Knysna is first rate. The car is securely parked on site. The breakfst was outstanding with among other things a fresh fruit salad and boiled eggs every morning.The hosts were most helpful and congenial. Highly recommend!

The place is exactly as advertised. Johan and his wife are incredible hosts! They sent us daily restaurant specials around the area and took the time to explain the points of interest in Knysna. The apartment is serviced daily and runs on solar so are not affected by the country imposed power cuts. All in all a great stay with extremely accommodating and friendly hosts. Would highly recommend!

Excellent guesthouse with very friendly and helpful hosts (Thanks to Johan and Dirkie). Cozy and very clean guestroom with a separate terrace and a wonderful view of the lagoon of Knysna where you can enjoy amazing sunrises and sunsets. Located quietly and safe above the village with private parking. Absolutely delicious breakfast prepared with great care. If I were to travel to Knysna or surroundings again, I would definitely stay there once more.

We stayed for 4 nights in this nice apartment overlooking the lagoon of Knsyna. Johan and Dirkie are very friendly hosts, who gave us a lot of tips. The apartment is very good equipped with a separate entrance. We feel very well and will come again soon.

Johan and Dirkie are the perfect hosts, from daily information on restaurant specials to what’s available to do to personally delivering your breakfast to your balcony to enjoy with one of the best view of the Knysna heads. The room was clean and big enough for the 2 of us. Great place to stay.

Fantastic location perched high above the Lagoon, near to the town and Waterfront. Very enjoyable breakfast on the deck. The room was well fitted with a large bed. Nothing was too much trouble for our very friendly hosts, we will definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to our friends in CT. Outstanding value for money.

Firstly the friendliness of the welcome was wonderful. Johan greeted us and let us in the gate and showed us to our room. Secondly, the view will take your breath away. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped. The bed was lovely and big. Bathroom had all the essential. Breakfast was served each day on our terrace and it was super healthy. Sorry to only have stayed two nights.
