Reviews for Thesen Island Holiday House
Lovely house for large groups.
Holiday vibe with very good restaurants
It was the best holiday accommodation we've had for a long time. All the comforts of home and relaxing and quiet.
What a stunning house and in such a beautiful location. This is our second visit to Thesen Island on Knysna but our first to the Holiday House. This two bed two bath with flowing kitchen, dining, lounge and out onto the deck overlooking the canal is immaculate. The furnishing and fittings are all top quality. The kitchen has every imaginable appliance which all appear to be brand new and there is a great array of crockery, cutlery, glasses and pots and pans. The dining table and chairs are in just the right place and comfortable to sit at. The lounge area has a wonderfully huge settee and numerous other chairs plus a decent sized TV with cable/satellite so we weren't deprived of the major sporting events. The bathrooms were beautifully appointed, the master having a huge free standing bath, as well as a walk-in shower. The king bed was excellent and the linens were top notch. The decked area around the property had great views of the canal and the Turbine Hotel opposite (lots of historical stuff worth reading about here). All in all a wonderful place to stay. We were there for a week and will make it our first port of call the next time we visit Knysna. Julie & Ian, Glasgow
