About the property

Access to championship golf, sports & luxury spa, 4 private bedrooms sleeps 8

The villa sits majestically on top of a ridge surrounded by fynbos with wrap-around views of Noetzie Beach, Sinclair Nature Reserve and Outeniqua mountains. The organic design with original African artefacts, indigenous natural wood and stone, and large multiple aspect windows and decks embraces the indoor/outdoor lifestyle and views. Enjoy relaxing by the pool or sitting around the fire under the Milky Way, with nothing but the sound of animals and the waves crashing below. 4 spacious bedrooms are luxuriously appointed, with own deck/patio and luxury baths, and are housed in private enclaves surrounding the main communal area. The double volume open-plan living, dining, entertainment and kitchen area has two wood burning fire places and huge glass walls opening up completely on two sides onto the main deck with pool and fire pit or a secluded veranda with Weber BBQ. A sweeping staircase leads up to a gallery mezzanine lounge that opens out onto a large deck for spectacular sunset views.

The villa provides a truly African experience as we have tried to combine an organic bushveld lodge feel with top end furnishings and high tech equipment such as full house automation, sound system (ipod hook-up) and wifi. The house design, in what could be conceived as 4 separate communicating 'buildings', provides maximum privacy in bedroom areas whilst offering a varied and flexible communal living/dining/entertainment area. Guests have access* to the championship golf course and the estate sports facilities (golf range, tennis, canoeing, archery, cricket, football, horse riding) and the luxury resort spa. The estate itself is a total security gated community. Concierge and housekeeping services available upon request. Children are welcome, the pool is covered, but they should be able to swim. We regret that as the house is designed on various levels to maximise guest privacy, it is likely not suitable for infirmed guests or very young children

A House that Matches the View - Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this property highly enough. It really is so much better than the photos. My wife and I could not believe how beautiful both the house and the location were. If you're thinking about renting this property there is only one thing to do - hurry!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Kufara was an overwhelming experience for myself and my family who have wanted to holiday together for years but have never had the opportunity. We were not disappointed. The house is filled with every convenience, is designed beautifully and is tastefully decorated. The setting is wonderfully peaceful and yet so close to Knysna town.The views are phenomenal and Noetzie Beach was a 5 min drive away.. lovely beach for children and secluded enough to be extra special. Michelle who runs the house was efficient and welcoming and swiftly dealt with any hiccups.. Thank you to Carola and Michelle for contributing to some incredible memories.
