One of the best views I've ever woken up to...the photos on the website are 100% accurate. Jenny & Chris were very welcoming and full of useful information. We had the ground floor suite with kitchenette, bathroom and balcony. We used the BBQ and sat and watched the sun go down each evening but there are lots of local restaurants... More

A very comfortable room with excellent views. Near most popular venues. Room had most appliances needed. Parking in was a bit tight . The owners were very friendly and helpful and able to offer quite a bit of information about Knysna.

We have stayed in the self-catering apartment before and liked it so much that we returned for a second visit. The view is spectacular and the apartment is comfortable, well appointed and entirely private. Super hosts too.

Absolutely loved my stay. Chris and Jenny were friendly and welcoming hosts. Location is everything and it was great to be near the cycle starts. Knysna is always cold this time but the warm heated rooms and bed when we arrived was a real blessing.

Traveling from Namibia to experience Knysna was the best choice, maybe not best choice in weather but definitely best choice in destination. Jenny and her husband are beyond friendly and make the stay truly pleasant. Rooms felt very homely and warm. We definitely coming back.

We stayed at 8 different establishments during our March trip to the Cape We went on business as well as having a holiday in between the business meetings. This was the best establishment by far- an absolute gem. Cleanliness, comfort and the best food.

We had a wonderful time. Perfect for some rest and relaxation. The information provided was helpful, and we enjoyed exploring Knysna from such a tranquil and beautiful base. We would recommend Paradise Found to anyone looking for a break, and we hope to return soon.
