A beautiful house, spacious, nice rooms with a great view over the Lagoon.
Marilyn and Martin are great hosts, very helpful, and Martin is an excellent cook! Breakfast is fantastic, new dishes every day!

Villa Paradisa is a lovely house with a stunning view overlooking the Knysna Lagoon. The owners and staff were very welcoming and friendly. The room was perfectly stocked with everything needed and very comfortable. The breakfast served was exceptional and presented beautifully. We would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful house in peaceful hilltop, bedroom with terrace to enjoy the breeze and the amazing views.
Marylin & Martin are great hosts. Marylin makes time to assist and advise visitors, while master Martin creates top level breakfasts. Wont go elsewhere if lucky to come back to the area...

We booked this venue months before because of its splendid TA reviews. Its strengths are well presented but, for me, it has a few weaknesses not seen in the several reviews we saw. The building is as externally palatial as depicted but up a very steep driveway blocking final driving visibility on entry. The views are excellent from the property with morning sun, although it disappointingly loses the sun in the afternoons/evenings. Our room was comfortable and described as a suite. It isn’t a suite – which should have adjoining rooms to my understanding. We also had local wild monkeys trying to enter the bathroom windows, so keep the windows closed! Breakfast was around a shared table with fellow guests. This was pleasantly convivial, although getting your freshly cooked choice free from unnecessary sharp dressing was an effort (e.g. lemon juice in scrambled egg). Plain food was described as ‘boring’, even if it’s what guests wanted! There was what was described as a shuttle for local restaurants but it turned out to be a taxi requiring payment – unlike the free service we received at another 5 star (but more expensive) guest house we stayed in. The hosts were very nice and always tried to please and their staff were pleasant. Their golf booking arrangement was helpful but required settlement in cash rather than as an addition to the final bill. Overall, for me, its weaknesses outweigh the strengths.

We stayed with Martin and Marilyn for three nights whilst doing the Garden Route. Their beautiful house is at the top of a hill overlooking Knysna lagoon and wow what views. Our room was well appointed, clean and also had a great view.
The infinity pool was a refreshing place to revive after a hot day on the road and Marilyn kindly arranged a table at some of the best places to eat each evening.
Martins breakfasts are something to save yourself for as he is very talented, imaginative and creates a unique dish each morning. Their staff were also very good and welcoming.
Would love to come and stay again.
