Pezula Private Castle, Noetzie Beach, Knysna

On the southern coast of South Africa, nestling in an almost secret location, lies one of the most exclusive private villas in the world. A beachfront vacation home so special, that out of more than four thousand entries, it was awarded "Best Property in the World" by CNBC.

Located in Knysna, on the Western Cape’s famous Garden Route, this is Pezula Private Castle, an exclusive, ultra luxury beach villa to rent. The Castle is situated directly on the secluded Noetzie Beach, voted one of the top three beaches in South Africa.

You will live like royalty in this magnificent private residence, and enjoy direct beach access, spacious luxurious suites, all with their own terraces, and personal service from a dedicated team of staff including an executive butler and private chef.

Enjoy long lazy days at the heated pool, picnic on the white sands of the secluded Noetzie beach, take a stroll to the edge of the meandering Noetzie River that runs through the Sinclair Nature Reserve, and marvel at the magnificence of this exquisite destination where you have chosen to holiday.

It is no wonder that in 2008, Nelson Mandela made Pezula Private Castle his home for ten days of reflection and peaceful contemplation. So, if you’re looking for the ultimate in luxury vacation rentals, we’d like to welcome you to a unique piece of heaven on earth.
