    Rental Home – 
    6 Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12
    Taliesin sleeps twelve adults in luxury. It has many decks to relax and take in the stunning views. Heaven for the bird watcher as it is steps from the bird reserve. Feeling energetic you can swim in the heated 10m pool or the safe waterways. As it is steps from the beach you could swim there.
    A daily house keeper looks after the house and you so this is a real holiday for all!
    It has been designed to make the most of the Knysna light and breezes with many windows and high full hieght ceilings.
    The area is stunning and there are many things and places to explore.

This makes it a very special apartment as it has the sole use of the gardens, decks & pool of the main house. All the beds & linen are of a very high standard so you will get a great nights sleep. There are many restaurants in the area. The small island boasts three.

Taliesin was the perfect venue for our large group. Space and views abound! Attentive manager made sure our arrival was easy and Joanna, the house keeper took care of us. It is quiet and private but still an easy walk to the restaurants and shops. The island is a great place to stay. This was the most amazing holiday. more

We spent 4 days with friends and our kids at Taliesen on Thesen during the Knysna Oyster Festival. The house is beautiful with loads of space, large entertainment areas and stunning views. Our children were cycling around the estate and enjoying the lagoon whilst we were enjoying sundowners on the veranda overlooking the lagoon. We can't wait to be back. more

Thank you for an unforgettable holiday experience at Taliesin. I am certain the family will treasure it for a long time. This house was perfect for our large family.
