Bianca and Ross gave us the most warm and attentive welcome, greeting us from the car, making sure our bags were taken care of and giving us the tour of the beautiful house. Throughout the staff we helpful but unobtrusive. Our room was...

Fantastic location and impeccable service. Great night and attention to detail was evident throughout. The Villa is well apportioned and quite relaxing and very much lived up to positive TA reviews. Driveway could be a little hard to navigate and Internet service a little spotty but a small price to pay for such a great experience. Looking forward to our...

We only got to stay one night, but we will be back. Bianca and Ross have a very well run operation with excellent attention to detail, but more importantly they are both lovely people and you can see they enjoy what they do. They are the icing on the cake of a wonderful stay...thanks guys! Nat and Grant

Villa Africana was an absolute delight. Our room was spacious with a fantastic view. Breakfast each day on the terrace was superb. The hosts and staff were so helpful and friendly- we wanted for nothing.

“The rooms are light, modern well equipped and provide everything that is needed. For an uninterrupted view over the Knysna Heads we would recommend either of the two top floor suites.Although I'm sure Ross or Bianca would inform anyone booking as to the views from the other suites.”
