The Heads in Knysna

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.
