We had a great stay at Hope Villa. The House is outside the city center, in quiet residential area. Two waterfront restaurants are within walking distance,which is great.Also parking on the ground possible. We have spent a very nice time there.

Shame that your time in Knysna was so short but it was lovely having the four of you stay here. Full of smiles and laughter and chatter! Perhaps one day you will head to South Africa again and then you can stay with us longer!

I have stayed at this B & B before and again I was not disappointed, the location is perfect right at the heads and the hosts are just the best, and Friedel makes a mean breakfast, would definitely recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hope Villa, in the beautiful Garden Route town of Knysna, is situated at The Heads. Stunning beaches, restaurants, golf courses and many leisure and adventure activities on your doorstep make this your ideal holiday accommodation choice! Your hosts will welcome you to this comfortable and stylish accommodation with their warm and personal touch! We speak English, Afrikaans and German. Enjoy a delicious breakfast in the diningroom or on the verandah, while the many nearby restaurants provide a mouth-watering choice for lunch and dinner.Hope Villa is an historic house. Construction of the house commenced in 1899 and was completed in 1901. The home is built of stone taken from the cliffs behind the house and features yellowwood floors, windows, oregan pine ceilings and doorframes. The house has since been tastefully restored. Hope Villa is a mere stroll away from the lagoon, restaurants and the scenic Eastern Heads viewpoints and walk, and is just a few kilometres from the centre of town. A few metres down the road takes you to a small lagoon beach from where you can walk out onto the lagoon sands at low tide or have a refreshing swim when the tide comes in. ... more   less
