Nestled in a very quiet cul-de-sac, only one km from the Knysna Waterfront and town centre, Paradise House offers its guests the opportunity to sample a number of attractions in and around Knysna, such as: Hire a boat from Lightleys and cruise around our beautiful lagoon. Board a ferry and enjoy a cruise to Featherbed Nature Reserve and the Knysna Heads. Watch the whales and dolphins play from Knysna Heads, Brenton-on-sea, Buffalo Bay, Knoetzie or Plettenberg Bay. Visit Knysna Elephant Park, Monkeyland or the unique Birds of Eden. Blackwater tubing at Stormsriver, bungee jumping at Bloukrans River Bridge or do a canopy tour in the Tsitsikamma Forest. Take a drive over the majestic Outeniqua Mountains and visit Oudshoorn’s famous ostrich farms and the Cango Caves. Enjoy a walk or sundowner on one of our many beautiful beaches.

Knysna is very central to all activities in the Garden Route, so make Paradise House your base from where to explore the most beautiful part of Africa. Come and relax in Paradise.

Thank you Fran for spoiling us at your beautiful house. Our bedroom was so elegantly and comfortably furnished and we had the most amazing view from our balcony. If we ever visit Knysna again, Paradise House will be the place to go to. Just 1 km from the Waterfront and all the other amenities close by but still in a private quiet neighbourhood.

We enjoyed our brief stay at Paradise House. The room was very comfortable, the facilities great, and the view from our room was stunning!

Paradise House was amazing. The suites were gorgeous and the views spectacular. The hosts, Johan and Zita, were always welcoming right from the beginning and Johan is full of useful information on the Knysna region.Everything their website claims they have, they fulfil and more. I will be referring people to Paradise should they ever express interest in Knysa. 5 stars for a perfect stay.
