Reviewed 18 November 2017

Stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed it. Warm welcome from the lovely staff and owners Marilyn & Martin. We stayed in the Sea Urchins Suite which had everything we needed. Tea and coffee making facilities in room. Lovely bathroom complete with bath and separate shower, bath robes and slippers also supplied. There is a very nice balcony with views to die for! Breakfast each morning was prepared by Martin and it was delicious. Marilyn was great for restaurant recommendations and was happy to make reservations. There is an honesty bar also available with a variety of wines and beers.Would highly recommend this Guest House and we will definitely return if in the area again. Thank you Marilyn & Martin and your lovely staff.

This B&B really deserves 5 *****!
Martin cooked the best breakfast ever and the view from the rooms & pool is absolutely stunning....the jacuzzi (and Smackes the cat) topped it off.
If you are on the garden route this place is highly recommended.

We stayed in the Sea Urchin Suite for two nights on our trip to game reserves outside of Port Elizabeth. The views were specular from our suite and patio. The attention to detail in the suite was amazing.
Marilyn is a very gracious hostess. She was able to book a table on short notice for a Saturday night at the highly rated Pembleys. All of the guests we met at Villa Paradisa had stayed there in the past. It is truly a gem!

Ou hosts, Marilyn & Martin and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The views from the property were superb. Amazing choice for breakfast. Marilyn was very helpful recommending and booking different activities for us. Some of which had discounts when booked through Paradisa.
The property itself is a joy to spend a few days in, both warm and relaxing. Everything you could wish for.

All I can say is WOW. This is a guest house of the highest standard, from the tasteful décor to amazing welcome from Marylyn, Martin and their staff.

The room (the Coral Suit) was fantastic, with a good comfy bed, it was nice and warm (air con in the summer). We sat in bed and looked over the amazing view and it was really romantic. There is a large balcony that we made use of with comfy sofa and table and chairs. The bathroom was large with really good facilities.

Breakfast was amazing, in the dining room looking over the lagoon, it has at a large table where you eat with and meet the other guests.

Unfortunately the weather was not up to a dip, but the pool deck is like some celebrity hangout again looking over the lagoon.

Over all, Villa Paradisa has stylish comfortable accommodation with very welcoming and friendly owners. We would defiantly visit again.
