Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Stellenbosch is a town defined by the vitality of youth (it's a university town) and the elegance of wine (this is South Africa's prime wine growing region). So it makes sense to stay in the middle of it all.  

Accommodation at Bonne Esperance is divided into studio apartments and rooms at the guest house. The studios are about 50m  from the main house and offer semi-self catering facilities but they're a whole lot more luxury than your usual self-catering option.

The guest house on the other hand is on-site with slightly smaller but more lavish rooms. In a Victorian house, they are far from old fashioned. In fact the rooms look like they come straight off a Pinterest board and open up with private patios to the communal pool and outdoor lounging area. All with an en suite and you can request either a king-sized bed or two singles.

Breakfast is served either indoors or out on the veranda. For the rest of the meals, make sure to go explore the gems in and especially around town. Stellenbosch is not only famous for the never-ending wine farms, but also for the cafes, delis and restaurants that pop up on every corner. Often these are family-owned or they have been around long enough to tell a story or two. Make it a part of yours.

You are also walking distance from museums and markets, excellent for floating around and exploring in between your wine tasting marathon. Some of the galleries and cultural sites include the  Oude Libertas Amphitheatre, The Klein Libertas Theatre, Village Museum Stellenbosch and the Stellenbosch University Botanical Gardens. Stellenbosch although mostly food, wine and culture, with such beautiful landscapes, you should definitely include a bike ride or a hike.

Bonne Esperance Guest House is a brilliant representation of Stellenbosh as a whole. You can venture off and then come home to Victorian luxury and lounge by the pool with a bottle of wine from your trip to the vineyards earlier that day. Who needs another safari when you have galleries and sippable treats?
