Upon arrival at Paradise Private, you step into a magical and mystical world that makes you feel like you are truly in paradise. The unique wooden design of this home and the individual studios give ultimate privacy once you step inside them. The Tidal Studio provides breathtaking views of the Knysna Lagoon and Heads, not just from the kitchen, but also from your private balcony and from your bed. Have sundowners on the living roof as you enjoy a magical sunset. Before or even after dinner you can enjoy a hot tub session or enjoy the cedar sauna that is wood fired. It is strategically positioned in what feels like, a little forest. It’s perfect to help you unwind for a good night’s rest. Once turned in for the night, it feels like you are floating in the sky. The town lights become alive at night, and therefore one does not even want to close the bedroom blinds. The self-catering unit comes fully equipped with everything you need for your stay. The attention to detail was well appreciated, as well as the personal touches. Your superhosts, Francois and Ellie, have been residents of Knysna for many decades, and are both valuable sources of information regarding Knysna and surrounds that will help you enjoy your stay even more. Paradise Private Zen studios come highly recommended, and we will definitely be retuning here for our dose of Zen.

I have never given a 5 star review but this place deserves it. I was their first guest during lockdown and immediately felt at ease and welcomed. Ellie and Francois' have an amazing eye for detail and for creating a restful environment which was perfect after working so intensely during the lockdown. The studios cater for couples or singles and all of the amenities are provided. The hosts offer lots of suggestions for things to do as well as supporting one's need to just sit and admire the view and relax. This is a place I will return to again. Francois and Ellie are generous and I highly recommend this place.

Situated in the Paradise Area high on the hills overlooking the Knysna Lagoon. The wood "cabins" included a kitchen and dining area uniquely furnished. It is a self catering accommodation. The owners live on site in a similar "cabin" and were always available to assist. Even built a Braai for us one evening and joined us for a drink around the fire. Very personalised visit, we were treated as friends. The owners Fransois and Ellie could not do enough for us during our 4 night stay.

Room Tip: Cabin with view is recommended. Although the single Garden view cabin suit our purpose.
