Bonne Esperance is a charming Victorian Villa with wrap-around veranda, cast iron mouldings and corner-turret. The villa was originally built in 1901 and the house retained the same charm and ambiance of that era but with the added luxuries of the modern age.

Our 15 comfortable en suite Guest Rooms are lovingly decorated and include hospitality tray, mini-bar fridge, wireless internet access, hairdryer, heater and ceiling fan. Enjoy breakfast au Provence in our butter-yellow breakfast room or outside on the veranda overlooking the garden. After a day of exploring come and relax next to the pool in the enclosed courtyard garden or in winter next to the fire in the guest lounge. Expect informative and friendly hospitality from your host Annemien Kotze and her team.

The historic town center of Stellenbosch can be reached by a mere 5-minute stroll along the oak-lined Van Riebeeck street and old mill stream. Bonne Esperance is the perfect base from which to explore the Western Cape. The Stellenbosch region has numerous activities to offer, the most famous being the world-class wine estates and a wine tour is a must. The valley is also the idyllic setting for walking trails, hiking, cycling, bird watching and horse riding. Golfing enthusiasts are well catered for with several championship golf courses close by. Cape Town with Table Mountain, The V&A Waterfront and vibrant city centre is 40 minutes drive away. Cape Point, Hermanus with it's whales and the West Coast can be reached within 90 minutes. For someone visiting the Stellenbosch University it offers ideal accommodation close to campus.

Super Stay!
- Schots Nathalie

We had the most wonderful stay, the breakfasts were amazing and the staff so friendly and thoughtful. Nothing was too much trouble. My daughter turned 21 over the period that we stayed there and she was spoilt with a bottle of champagne! We would definitely recommend Bonne Esperance and will always try to stay over when in Stellenbosch.
