We absolutely loved our two nights here, so much so that we didn't actually leave for dinner either night. Our room was really nice, but the bathroom was a highlight, especially with the heated floors. You could get breakfast in your room which was lovely. The staff were absolutely fabulous and couldn't do enough for us. They had a little drinks Happy Hour downstairs every night and served really lovely high quality drinks. In fact, everything about this place is high quality.

Room Tip: I don't think there are any bad rooms here

The Villa is beautifully situated overlooking the town of Knysna and its river. Our room — Noetzie Suite, was very comfortable with great views. The owners were gracious and helpful with advice, the staff were friendly and professional, and the breakfasts and afternoon tea were delicious. Cannot recommend highly enough. One caveat—the distance may be short, but the road into town is steep. We had intended to walk, but instead took advantage of Benny’s taxi service, which worked out really well.

Room Tip: We loved the Noetzie suite, but from the looks of it, I imagine you can’t go wrong with any of the rooms.

I am coming from Dubai and spoiled from 5 Star Hotels. Travelling through South Africa for a while I have not seen somehing like this before. The Staff is amazing. The Villa is renovated in an excellent way and the breakfast is superb. I have never seen that a Car Wash is included every day. The Parking is safe. I have to congratulate the owners for their taste and management of their property!

The staff at the Villa Afrikana was so welcoming and accommodating. Loved having my breakfast out on the balcony overlooking the river as the sun rose! They arranged easy transportation down and back to the waterfront. Very much worth the price and value, will go back for sure!

By far the best guest house we stayed in. The staff are super friendly, professional and polite. The place is exceptional. The rooms are exquisite and comfortable with beautiful views overlooking the harbour. The bathroom is very spacious and has heated floor tiles just in case you feel cold after a shower/bath. It's a definite must if you're staying in Knysna, SA.
