My husband and I stayed at An African Villa for 4 nights before we left on the Garden Route, and 1 night when we returned. I highly recommend this Guest House. The décor immediately gets you in a South African mood, and the employees are...More

Dear Passenger304334 It saddens me deeply that your group had a disappointing time with us. I realize we can’t be everything to everybody, but we learned from this experience that the dynamics with a big group wanting maximum flexibility are more challenging than dealing with...More

About
Description
The Villa comprises two houses which form part of a Victorian terrace dating from 1892. These double stories have been joined and so the inside spaces are very spacious. “It's like walking into a tardis” More someone has written on Tripadvisor! The hotel is owner managed. Location is vital when choosing a vacation venue and the Villa is within an easy walk of most tourist attractions while some, (like the fabulous beaches) are a short taxi ride away. There is a small plunge pool in a peaceful courtyard where a very full breakfast is served in summer. (In winter we serve in a sociable dining room with an eco-friendly fire blazing). Your hosts will happily arrange car rental, restaurant bookings, tours etc if required. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is available in all rooms. A staff member is on duty throughout the night to offer complimentary port and sherry and there is also an honesty bar available. Parking is on street at no charge (with street guard) - though most manage without a car. Less
