Villa Afrikana Guest Suites

Five-star hotel accommodation in Knysna without the five-star price, Villa Afrikana Guest Suites is a clever combination of boutique hotel and family-run guesthouse.

Situated high up in the leafy suburbs of the seaside town of Knysna, on the Garden Route, Villa Afrikana Guest Suites is a purpose-built guesthouse-hotel with stunning views of the Knsyna Lagoon from every suite and personal service from the your hosts Ross and Bianca.

The house is a modern, clean-lined, polished monstrosity each room angled away from the other for privacy and a great view. Floors are shiny marble, walls are matt white and the ceilings are barely interrupted by the subtle recessed lighting. Villa Afrikana Guest Suites represents sophisticated accommodation with a warm and personal touch from your hosts and their capable staff.

With just six rooms, Villa Afrikana Guest Suites wisely opted out of running a full restaurant, which would otherwise lack some essential atmosphere. However, a dinner or light meal is easily rustled up and served in your room and the breakfast terrace looks out over the glorious views; the bar is stocked with every conceivable tipple from Armagnac to Whisky. And of course Knysna has heaps of excellent restaurants that your hosts will recommend. They will even book you a table and provide transport to and from your evening.


Six spacious suites; en suite bathrooms with underfloor heating and separate showers; luxury linen and extra length beds; entertainment centre; bathrobes and slippers; luxury toiletries; safe; wi-fi; hair dryer; room service; breakfast terrace; lounge and bar; swimming pool; library; safe parking; laundry; light meals and room service; concierge.


Knysna is a short distance from your villa where you can explore the lagoons, the forests, beaches, shops, restaurants and a whole lot more. Two days at least you will need here to enjoy the range of activities and the lovely mild climate.

Close your eyes and imagine blue skies, manicured lawns and a country side manor overlooking orchards and a backdrop of mountains. And well, you’re on the doorstep of the elegant and sophisticated Surval Boutique Olive Estate in Oudtshoorn.

De Denne Guest House

Cadbury’s got his eye on you. And it’s a big one. He’s got the largest peeper of any land animal. And Suzie’s his missus so watch your step. Johan and Louise Keller are billed as the owners but what’s the bet their resident counterparts are the real deal here? This is a working farm. An ostrich one. Cadbury and Suzie are great, big, flightless birds. And probably top dogs.
