About Tim Din

We are designers, based in the UK and in South Africa.

Tim Din purchased this house in 2016

Why Tim Din chose Franschhoek

KoKo House is our private home, which we offer to guests when we are away. We have recently renovated the property, and our aim has been to create a comfortable home for ourselves, friends and for guests to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

The location is second to none. In the heart of the village, yet quiet and private - the large gardens are not overlooked and have mountain views, and a calm relaxed atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a comfortable stay in your home, the house was so private and worked perfectly for the whole family. But the location...The location is absolutely perfect! Just a stroller away from the heart of the village, coupled with views of the mountains across a quiet private garden to die for. And the best of pools. The decor is gorgeous and every room comfortable and relaxing.Thank you so much Tim, we will be returning.

A wonderful place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We all loved Koko house! The house is beautiful and located in the center of the village; the rooms were spacious, clean, sunny, with all the modern accessories; the kitchen was especially large and well equipped, with room for 13 around the dining room table; the outside space was perfect, both for the morning and afternoon sun; the art was exceptionally wonderful (!) and added elegance to the whole house. We all loved hanging out at Koko House and would highly recommend it to others! Thanks to the owners for giving us the opportunity to enjoy their wonderful home!

An absolutely amazing dream house

  • 5 of 5

Our expectations for KoKo house were pretty high but we were absolutely delighted and excited on arrival at the prospect of staying in this amazing house. It was warm and welcoming and grand! Several rooms lead to the outside, either a private courtyard with its own water feature or to the magnificent gardens and spectacular pool. Two of the ground floor bedrooms opened out directly to the garden, one directly to the pool and garden. We felt like film stars staying there. If you haven't been to Franschhoek, then you haven't lived. From the house to the high street took two minutes and there we were surrounded by wonderful restaurants, and lots of shops and galleries, and the whole of the wine valley. After a day of shopping and dining, going back to the house just ensured that our wonderful day continued. The bedroom suites in the house were equally grand, comfortable and clean, in fact the whole house was very well kept. We felt spoilt and we can't wait to go back again next year. We would highly recommend it to our friends and family.

A wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

A memorable holiday in an exceptional thatched property set in a quiet location within a short walking distance of Franschhoek's shops, excellent restaurants and art galleries. KoKo House is immaculate inside and out and is tastefully decorated to a very high standard with local art adorning the walls. It offers very comfortable en suite bedrooms. The lounge areas are spacious and comfortable. it is ideally suited and equipped for both small and larger groups. Outside is a good sized pool set in lovely gardens with several areas for relaxing on loungers etc. Not far away are numerous wonderful wine estates and, for those that wish to travel further afield, Cape Town and Hermanus are within easy reach. I will definitely be back.

A fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at KoKo House in January and were blown away by the whole experience. The house is simply stunning and the attention to detail is second to none.

The house is beautiful and we loved the overall style and feel of the place. Our bedroom had the most beautiful aspect and our guests had nothing but praise for their rooms.

We particularly loved the gardens and pool area and these provided us with the perfect place to relax and socialise. We have been to South Africa before but have never stayed in Franchoek before this - we will certainly be going back!

Tim was really helpful beforehand and gave us great advice on transfers and also restaurant and vineyard recommendations.

All in all, this is a stunning property in a fabulous location. We will be back!

5 Star House with a 5 Star Service

  • 5 of 5

The House and gardens are exceptional and exceeded all expectations.

It had beautifully large rooms and a marvelous pool area.

The property was clean, tidy and well maintained throughout the week.

The service was great and made the stay problem free and relaxing.

I would certainly recommend Koko House. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Franschhoek!!!
