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.

We are happy that you enjoyed your time in Historic Hope Villa! It really is special to read the interesting history of the house and to think back to how different times must have been almost 120 years ago in Knysna! (This history is also documented on our Hope Villa website). You were really lovely guests and we hope that...

One of the things that is so great about Knysna and the surrounding areas is that there is a mix of action, adventure, relaxing, beaching, kayaking, walking, biking on offer. If you let us know what you like doing we will try and find the perfect way to fill your days here!

We loved having you stay here even though it was a short stay. Maybe longer next time as there is loads to do in the area. Hope that you have good rains on the farm this year. Thanks for a lovely review.

Without knowing the exact location we booked a 7 night stay at this b&b. What a find! As location goes although you can't see the lagoon you are 50 m away from a "secret" beach where swimming is protected and magnificent. A breakfast and lunch cafe is right there with awesome lemon meringue pie. But enough about the heavenly location....

Overall very good conditions. The room was very comfortable and clean. Only thing is there was no mirror in the room or close enough to a plug point for ladies who need to do their hair. The owners were very friendly. Definitely will be back the next time I am in Knysna as it is conveniently situated a walk away...

So sorry about the lack of mirror! It had recently fallen off the wall and although I had bought a replacement, we hadn't yet gotten around to putting it back up. Most of the time we are on-hand here and if you had mentioned it to us, the task would've been moved to priority position! Hope Villa is in a...

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
