They prepared the breakfast for us as for their own children. They explained to us what is to do around, they help us in discovering the area. We highly recommend Paradise Found as...

Accommodation was good and the friendly reception from Jenny and Chris will stay with us for a long time. Breakfast was good and the view of the lagoon and Knysna is the best in the area. We wish them well and long healthy years at the retirement village. God Bless.

We enjoyed our stay, hosts Chris and Jenny were so hospitable and very friendly. Location is so central yet not part of the busy town of Knysna. Pictures of the place are accurate and the view is how you see it

From the time of our arrival until our departure we were made to feel at home and very welcome. Our host gave us a run-down of the favourite places to visit, the must's and the don't's. We had the most amazing views and could not comprehend the magnificence of Knysna. Our room was perfect for our stay and we came...
