Its an experience that will transport you to the heart of what Knysna has to offer.

Liked  · The view from our apartment was amazing and the hosts were gracious and generous. The whole experience was bliss from start to finish. The room was beautiful and everything was well considered. They even laid out some wine and bubble bath for us. I would definitely visit here again.

The place to stay in Knysna!

A dream accommodation high above Knysna

Liked  · Paradise Private Zen studios are awesome. Beautiful Japanese-inspired architecture, in which each guest has his own studio with an amazing view of Knysna. You also have this view from the bed. Everything is there that you need and everything is very lovingly and thoughtfully integrated. We had booked without breakfast and there was still cereal and yogurt and tea and coffee. There was also a small bottle of wine and we were unlikely to get many tips on what to look at and do. On the second day it rained and we used the wonderful sauna that Francois cheered us up.

Ryan – South Africa (10)

One of my best stays ever

Liked  · The Photos do not do this property justice it can only truly be appreciated by seeing it. The views are incredible and everything you will need is in the room, attention to detail is incredible, they even have a bicycle stand with a lock and chain readily available, I must say it is not often I would return to a property but this is the exception, an absolutely awesome experience and amazing hosts.

Liked  · Super amazing view. All amenities available. Welcome bottle of wine and sherry was a nice touch. We used the balcony to have breakfast every morning and it has a perfect view of the lagoon. Other small touches such as umbrella and binoculars which we used for our beach day and forest walk were much appreciated.

Roxanne – South Africa (10)


Liked  · EXCEPTIONAL. We were immediately welcomed by the host upon arrival. She gave us a tour of our room and was very insightful about everything in and surrounding the area, from fine dining to activities. The room was spotless and everything we needed was there at our fingertips. It’s a very private location with breathtaking, soaring views.

Shenine – South Africa (10)


Liked  · Everything! The view from the studio/bed was outstanding. 180-degree view of the city and the lagoon, we could see the Knysna heads as well. The studio’s layout was very well designed and the architecture interesting. With the loveliest fragrance upon entering the property, I can tell the host is passionate about hosting!

Anieka – South Africa (10)

Highly recommend! Step into a new world.

Liked  · This location was beyond great. It made us feel like we were in Thailand or some other country. The zen studios have literally every thing in that we needed for self catering with extra touches where the host went the extra mile. Also the location overlooking Knysna are beautiful. Really would go back to this accommodation and highly recommend this place.

Liked  · We were completely blown away by the sheer quality and customer focus at this stay, it is comfortable, exceptionally clean and everything that you could possibly want is provided Our weather was quite poor during our stay but that just made us want to stay in and enjoy the property even more and to marvel at the exceptional views It is worthwhile staying here just to meet the fantastic hosts, Ellie and Francois, who gave us a warm welcome and looked after us during a power cut! (Thank you, we really hope to meet up again!)

Best place during our South Africa tour!

Liked  · Lovely hosts who are helpful and supportive whatever you need. The place is beyond beautiful and we are very happy that we had the chance to stay at this unique place. The view from the private deck is stunning and we enjoyed our morning coffee there. The place has everything you need and it’s very close to the waterfront. This is the place to choose for a trip to beautiful South Africa!
