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.

We hope that you come back again on your next South African visit! One night is definitely too short in Knysna but it gives you a taste of our beautiful Garden Route and all it has to offer. We hope that the rest of your trip was full of good experiences and happy memories!
