Hope Villa is situated at The Heads, 6kms out of the centre of town but close enough to be able to nip back there if you want to experience more of the town “hustle and bustle”.

The surroundings here are peaceful and tranquil.  Hope Villa is set on a large property so there is plenty of off-street parking and a lovely garden with swimming pool, trees and the constant sound of birds going about their business!

A short amble down the road and you’re at the sea where the views will take your breath away.  The Indian Ocean enters the Knysna lagoon through The Heads (we are at the East Head) and every day down at the lagoon is different.  There are many benches and viewpoints where one can just sit and watch the water coming and going (the change of tides is very interesting to watch because the water moves very fast and strong through The Heads), fishermen hoping to catch “the big one”, the pleasure boats having fun on the lagoon or the resident seals having fun in the water.

How To Find Us

The picturesque and historic town of Knysna is situated in the heart of the Garden Route along the Western Cape coast. A 5-hour drive or a 1-hour flight from Cape Town will bring you to this unique destination. From Johannesburg you will need to fly into George whose airport is merely 70 kilometres from Knysna by car. Most car rental companies are represented at George Airport. Once you reach Knysna on the N2 from the direction of George, drive through Knysna’s town centre. Turn right into George Rex Drive just past the traffic light to the Quick Spar/Caltex garage on the right.


Stay on George Rex Drive for approximately 5 kilometres until you reach the traffic circle. Go ¾ way around the circle and exit just before “Under Milkwood” holiday resort. Follow the road to Hope Villa which you will find about 150 metres down the road, on the left hand side.
