After a long drive on a drooling, rainy day we arrived in Knysna and experienced a warm welcome in Hope Villa. The house is reconstructed to accomodate guests in spacious rooms with luxury shower and bathroom.
Yet the owners have managed to keep the warm, subtropical atmosphere of the early 20th century. Very friendly hosts Tessa and Friedel serve a wonderfull breakfast and have stories to tell while at the same time show interest in their guests as well.
Good restaurant at walking distance for souper / diner.
Hope Villa is located outside of Knysna, 10 car minutes away from the centre. If we return to Knysna again, we will know where to stay.

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
