2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
"Space-Exclusivity & Style" Situated in the heart of the Garden Route; home to Pezula Golf Estate, Simola Golf Estate and Knysna Golf Club. Villa Afrikana, a 5*, small-size, family-owned property, have been operating in the formal hospitality industry for the past 15 years, consistently achieving the highest marks and accolades for our services and facilities. We pride ourselves in providing attentive and personalized service in an ambiance of conviviality, unpretentious elegance, and comfort. We are situated in “Paradise”, a leafy and quiet neighbourhood on the western side of Knysna from which to enjoy the most magnificent unobstructed views of the iconic Knysna Lagoon and yet so close to the hustle and bustle of the Waterfront and Theesen Island. THE VILLA With its summery, gleaming white, the geometric architecture of Villa Afrikana is already quite a sight. The stylish interior is just as defined in the same perfect white. A modern, unpretentious interior gives the compact Villa Afrikana a surprisingly open feel to its rooms. Look out for the eye-catching artworks and cleverly placed objects. The attractive style encompasses a total of 6 air-conditioned suites, all have a fantastic view over the lagoon of Knysna. Each also features a comfortably furnished and very spacious luxury bathroom in cutting design with under-floor heating and double washbasin. • Salt Water Swimming pool with sun deck (unattended) • On-site secure parking • Laundry Service • Porterage • Complimentary Wireless Connectivity • Complimentary Room Service • Complimentary, satellite TV channels • In-suite Light Meals & Licensed bar • Concierge Desk.

Beautiful and very clean property with exceptionally helpful, friendly staff and owners. The attention to detail throughout the suites is impressive. We stayed for four nights and from the moment we arrived until we left we could not have been made to feel more welcome. It was a very personal experience.

We were treated as very special guests, the attention to detail was outstanding, and all the staff were just great. The location was very close to everything, and the breakfasts wonderful. A must to see is the heads which is the narrow gorge at the head of the lagoon.

Certainly one of the best services we ever had. Tracy, Beauty and all other staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. The place have great views of the lagoon especially if you opted for a suit on the upper floors. It also has a good location for golfing and exploring around.

Nestled in the hills with views all over Knysna you will find a little slice of heaven at Villa Afrikana. Everyone there went over and above to make our two night stay wonderful. Our room was spotless, comfy beds and a terrace that was just incredible overlooking the gorgeous views. We really didn’t want to leave. Thank you to Tracy who looked after us so well. We will almost certainly be back when we return to SA.

This guest house is a step above all other guest houses! The staff are so amazing I didn’t want to leave. Nothing was too much trouble. As soon as we arrived the full team took to ensuring we relaxed. While we were greated by Beauty, Frank was unloading our car and taking all our luggage to our room without hesitation which was a god send after the long drive from Wilderness. Every detail was thought of and no matter where we went and what time we got back there was always a friendly face greating us back. They even helped us play a joke on our friends on our last night by pretending we had not yet arrived back only to find us relaxed in the lounge armchairs. Thank you to everyone. I cannot recommend this guest house enough. We will be back. If you’ll have us 🤣🙏🏻

Our 3rd visit to this wonderful boutique hotel. We are well travelled and this is the best we have been to over the years. So many plus points and no negatives. You are welcomed from the minute you arrive with a drink and warm towels. The cases were taken up to our room immediately. The rooms are enormous with spectacular views of Knysna heads. Immaculately clean. The superb breakfasts can be served on your balcony. Complimentary afternoon tea between 4 and 5 every day. Complimentary happy hour 7 to 8 every day. You want for nothing here. Lovely Pool and relaxing area. When ever you leave or return to the property someone is always about to help you. They even clean your car for you. Ross and Bianca are wonderful hosts. The staff are just fantastic Tracy, Beauty and Kingston. If there was a 6* rating this would get it.
