To start planning your vacation to Kurland Villa
Originally the private home of the owners of Kurland, one of our favorite properties in the Garden Route, Kurland Villa has thrown open its doors to all guests and boasts supremely comfortable and spacious living areas. The villa is very close to pristine South African indigenous forest and the guests have full access to all the varied facilities on the Kurland Estate, including the chance to see some very exciting polo matches!
The villa has been designed in the Cape Dutch tradition, incorporating contemporary elements and catering to all the wishes of modern living - it has been finished in style and is elegantly decorated and appointed.
The villa is separated into a main house and a west wing, each offering spacious accommodation - in the main house there are five bedrooms, and in the west wing there are three bedrooms. The west wing adjoins the main house, making it a perfect place for older teenagers to sleep. In addition the main house has two very large living rooms, a dining room, study, kitchen, an outside seating area, a crystal-clear and welcoming swimming pool, steam bath and a sauna, a jaccuzi and to cap it all off, a wine cellar.
We consider Kurland Villa to be the perfect base for families or groups of friends wishing to stay in a secluded spot but with easy access to the beaches of Plettenberg Bay and the other highlights the Garden Route has to offer.
