We stayed here for 5 nights after safari'ing and overall it was a great experience. The location was perfect, we could explore all day in the car or by foot and walk to dinner in the evening either on the island or at the Waterfront or in town. We didn't use the kayaks as it was early spring but plenty of other hardy souls did. The accommodation was perfect for us and the owners were very quick to respond to every question of minor issue we had. We were missing a ball for the pool table and on our return from a day out there was a complete set waiting on the doorstep. Brilliant service! The kitchen was well equipped although we didn't cook anything - the local breakfast and dinner restaurants were just too good!! The view morning and evening was spectacular and the only minor note for Spring visitors is that you need to be a lover of geese as they were very very vocal at dawn and frequently had a jump around and squabble on the roof at 6am. After the initial shock we treated them as...

We had our second stay in Anka's villa during the July school holidays
This is probably the best spot for a holiday home in Knysna : perfect views , private and peaceful but nearby the very best restaurants in town.
The host is very helpful and friendly and very accommodating.
The house is equipped with everything needed and is just 5 star quality in total.
Highly recommended.

A beautiful setting right onto the lagoon.It is situated in Nature reserve, so one has the benefit of lagoon, forests, nature trails and sea. The apartment was large and airy and even though it was winter we were still able to walk to the many restaurants and pub at night .
In fact we liked the Thesen Island so much we bought a property there.
The best news is there was not a burglar bar in sight.
