Why Choose Us?

Do you want luxury Franschhoek accommodation in a guest house and very small boutique hotel, rather than stay at a sterile, large hotel no matter how luxurious the latter is?

Then this six roomed luxury Franschhoek guest house and boutique hotel offers five star guest house and small boutique hotel accommodation in five unique buildings with four pools.

These are all situated on the same beautiful property in a quiet and peaceful area of the village Franschhoek, in the most beautiful wine valley in the world, right in the heart of the Cape Winelands.

It is an easy stroll to the renowned restaurants and attractions in the village of Franschhoek and almost all of the most famous vineyards of the Cape Winelands are a short drive away.

Akademie Street’s accommodation is the perfect place in the Cape Winelands to enjoy peace, privacy and tranquillity with personal attention from the owner managers always available.

Franschhoek is the wine and gourmet capital of the Cape but is less than an hour from down-town Cape Town. Explore Franschhoek and the surrounding winelands and scenic routes. Our concierge desk is open 24/7 to help you with restaurants, wine tours, hikes and advice on what to see and do.

Three of the buildings, Gelatenheid (Equanimity), Oortuiging (Conviction) and Vreugde (Joy) each have their own sun-kissed swimming pool and shady, private garden. The fourth building, Uitsig (View) is a separate, large, luxurious upstairs suite with balcony and lovely views.
