Akademie Street Guesthouses

Akademie Street Guesthouse is no ordinary guesthouse. Rather it is a collection of cottages in a beautiful garden on a quiet, oak-lined street a few blocks from the main road running through Franschhoek.

A permanent chart-topper among the large selection of bed and breakfast accommodation options in and around Franschhoek, Akadamie Street Guest house wins hearts and return visitors with its warm welcome, convenient location, comfortable rooms, quiet surrounds and personal service.

Katherine, Arthur and their well-groomed, well-trained team are truly exceptional in their attention to detail: you feel they really want you to enjoy your stay, which is a refreshing change from the corporate restraint you find in five-star hotels.

Akadamie Street Guesthouse accommodation comprises five separate cottages. With a variety of sizes and options all of them share the same level of space, luxury and loving attention to detail. Your cottage will have underfloor heating, a home entertainment centre, a fridge filled with complimentary drinks and snacks, air conditioning, power showers and private balconies.

Accommodation is all bed and breakfast and with so many excellent restaurants on your doorstep, eating out becomes your nightly activity. In addition to the restaurants, there are wine farms to visit, nature reserves to explore and things to buy in the galleries and markets. Your hosts will be delighted to help you plan your activities while you're in Franschhoek.


Five large cottages each sleeping two, one with an extra room; three swimming pools (some private, some shared); en suite bathrooms with power showers and underfloor heating; heating, air conditioning and ceiling fans; home entertainment centres with CD and DVD library; personal mobile phone with useful numbers stored; mini bar with complimentary wine, beer, water and snacks; main living area with lounge, dining room and breakfast terrace.


Relaxing and lazing beside the pool are about all you can do at Akadamie Street Guesthouse; for the rest you'll need to venture out of your little home from home: restaurants, boutiques, art galleries, craft shops and wine farms.
