    Knysna, Western Cape, South Africa

    This is the perfect Spot on Thesen Island to pause and experience Knysna. The ideal space to spend a couple of days. The Spot is compact and luxuriously appointed. It is safely tucked in the secure estate, yet is on the water and is within strolling distance of the restaurants and shops of the famous Thesen Harbour Town. Sleep in superior quality down and cotton, enjoy sunsets over the water from your own deck and explore the canals on kayaks, which are included in the package.
    The space comprises a room with bathroom and kitchenette on the ground floor, with access from the parking area and from the jetty on the other side. Although very compact, the location and the superior finishing of the Spot amply make up for it's size. We have added a walk in cupboard just outside the front door so that guests can store bulky luggage outside the room. The shower is within the bedroom space and the toilet and basin are in a separate private space. The deck and jetty are perfect for a meal, a drink or simply to doze on the comfortable lounger. At high tide you may well forget that you are in fact on land, as the water rises to meet the deck. The Spot is equipped with Kayaks, beach and picnic apparel, tennis rackets and more, all of which aid in allowing guests to experience Thesen Island to the full.
    Thesen Island is a beautiful estate made up of many islands. it is secure and accordingly offers peace of mind. There are tennis courts, squash courts, walking paths, a maze, a bird hide, a private beach, a park and more. Restaurants, tappas bars, beauty and hair salons and coffee shops are a leisurely stroll away. The Waterfront is a 20 minute walk away and boasts fabulous food, shopping, boat cruises and more.
  • Very nice place to stay. A little bit small but the views and location are totally worth it. You won’t regret about booking Jenny’s house, best location at Knysna!

    Elli2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny's place is everything and more. The location is perfect, the pictures don't do it any justice. Super safe, I took an evening wlk and went for a jog very early in the morning around the block and the breeze was amazing. It's perfect for 1 person though cz the unit is too small for 2 people, it was perfect for me cz I was there alone. Walking distance to the Harbour town/ Waterfront and restaurants. The views are amazing. I am definitely booking myself there again and I will spend more than one night next time. The unit is fully equipped with everything, from beach towels to mini cooler boxes and utensils... Worth every cent!

    Siya2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Spot is exactly as the name suggests. It’s a perfect cozy place to relax. Also a great location to base yourself in Knysna. Attention to detail and very comfortable. We will be back.

  • Lightning clean accommodation and very nicely decorated. Very safe private residential area, however, if you are looking for the "real African flair", you should live somewhere else :). Communication was great. Check-in and check-out were easy. Everything you need is available in the apartment. Even more, for example, we borrowed bicycles.

  • Jeremy's apartment corresponds exactly to the pictures in the advertisement. The apartment is very lovingly furnished with great attention to detail. High quality soap towels all available. Even water and coffee as well as milk and honey were in the apartment. The location is very nice and certainly one of the safest corners in all of South Africa. Jeremy's tips about restaurants and activities were excellent. We would come back anytime. It was nice days on Thesen Island.

    Oliver2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very good experience with Jeremy. We realize he had stairs to the apartment which my Dad was unable to climb. They immediately phoned around to see if they could find us other accommodation without stairs They found us a superb alternative spot which we were both very happy with!! A great stay, though not with Jeremy. They couldn’t have been more helpful

    Luisa2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Sustra’s was the highlight of my trip to the garden route. Their place is just amazing, the location is among the best in Knysna. I could not have hoped for better hosts. So welcoming and generous with their recommendations so I had a chance to go to the best spots for food and sightseeing in the little two days I could spend there . I left my car and discovered Knysna by foot and bike they kindly let me use. I had access to the gazebo by the river to sip a glass of wine by sunset. I would come back in a heartbeat and I highly recommend it! One of the best places I have stayed through Airbnb . If there was a six star review they would get it from me .

    Carl2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! Sustra is such a great host, she even let us stay for an extra 4 hours 🕺🏽. The place is very close to amenities, the Waterfront where you can find a variety of restaurants. I Would recommend this place to anyone planning a trip to Knysna.

  • We loved our stay here. The hosts were contactable even while they were overseas. They checked to see if we needed the coffee and tea refilled and arranged a cleaner as we requested. We stayed for 10 days and it was wonderful, everything we requested they arranged, even a new braai was available for us to use! The location near the beach on the island was really great. Thank you!!

    Mike2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • This stylish space was a dream! The location is superb, and the balconies overlooking the water were a great place to spend time with a cup of coffee in the mornings. The apartment had good amenities, including a tumble dryer and washing machine. The bed was super comfortable, although the bedroom can be a bit light due to the double volume room and hard-to-reach windows. The community of Thesen Island offers excellent security, and the apartment is close to restaurants, coffee shops and other retail outlets. Breakfast at Ile de Pain is a must!

  • I honestly can't imagine a better place to stay on Thesen Island, my husband and I absolutely loved staying at this apartment. Very spacious and luxurious, the space totally exceeded our expectations! Perfectly situated, the apartment is a short 1 or 2 minute walk to the restaurant strip yet still private and quiet enough to relax and unwind. We loved reclining on the sun loungers outside, reading or watching the boats and paddlers go by. The apartment has a dishwasher, washing machine and a tumble dryer which is really convenient. It also has a great braai/BBQ on the balcony and an indoor fireplace for cosy evenings spent indoors. The bed, bed linen and towels are all hotel quality. I also loved the soft carpet in the bedroom. Thank you for such a great stay Magru, we can't wait to visit again later this year!

  • Lovely clean safe apartment on Thesen island in a charming residential area. Heather was very quick and responding and provided really useful local tips.

    Izzi2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Heather’s place in thesen island is stylish, spotlessly clean and well located and provided a great little base for us and our 1 year old baby while in knysna. We didn’t have great weather for 2 of the days we were there but our daughter was happy watching the ducks on the lagoon from the patio (need to keep good eye on a baby as no barrier but that’s part of the appeal of the homes here - so close to the water) and going to the bird sanctuary or play park. Thesen Island is a great safe place for a short family stay. The restaurants and shops are all very close too and much more upmarket than in town - if that’s what you are after. We got one sunny day to explore more of what knysna has to offer and what a stunning location it is. We wished we had longer. Heather and Andrew were very warm and attentive hosts and very responsive to messages. Would highly recommend this place!!

    Deirdre2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful space with thoughtful touches. Easily one of the best places I've stayed. The apartment is sufficient for two people.

  • I only wish I could give this more than 5 stars. Everything was perfect. The room was spotless with a comfortable bed, large shower, plenty of hangers for clothes, cable tv, fridge (with milk)....The pool is lovely. Security is the best anywhere with fingerprint technology to access the private estate and therefore you can and I did sleep with the French Window open. The facilities are excellent with tennis courts and a 18 hole par 3 putting course. There are plenty of restaurants within 10 minutes walk which are all very good. I highly recommend this place.

The location is spectacular with so many activities and restaurants nearby. We were also able to enjoy breakfast on the gazebo overlooking the canal every morning. Overall the stay was incredible and I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Thesen’s island. The only criticism I have is that in summer, the rooms can get quite hot as there is no air conditioning or fan. Everything else, however, was excellent!

    Entire 3 bedroom house available for a relaxing holiday on the unique, secure estate of Thesen Islands. The house is light, bright, well-equipped and is ideally situated for holidays. The house is very private but at the same time has quick access to restaurants, beaches, lagoon, canals etc. The property is open plan on the living area downstairs and has direct access to the canals via a private jetty and also has a large private pool. Outdoor living and relaxing at its best.
    The property has 3 bedrooms, all with on-suite bathrooms. There are two lounge areas, an open plan kitchen, a large pool, garden, private jetty to waterways and a double garage.

Knysna and the Garden Route offer a vast range of experiences to visitors.

  • The house is located on a separate island which is well guarded. The territory of the island is very well-maintained, green and beautiful. During power cut periods (which happen EVERYWHERE in South Africa) wi-fi and room light remain working, which could not but please. The house is definitely worth the money.

    Upstairs on Thesen Island is the new sister to the Drymill Pied-a-terre. It too offers a graceful home away from home with a view over the water to the knysna heads. Two luxurious bedrooms with one bathroom and an additional bath and basin within the main bedroom.The On the water with private jetty and kayaks available to use.
    The two en suite bedrooms are dressed in fine white cotton and down. The bathroom is positioned on the landing between the two bedrooms and comprises of a shower, basin and toilet. In addtion thereto, the main bedroom has within it, a free standing bath and a basin. Accordingly there are two private spaces for bathing and showering but there is only one toilet, which is situated in the bathroom. Airbnb doesn’t have a way to list this bathroom configuration so I have used the 1,5 bathroom choice. The living area comprises an open plan lounge and kitchen and a generous patio with built in barbeque, which overlooks the canals for evenings with perfect sunsets and views. There is WIFI and DSTV with the full bouquet of channels. The kitchen is fitted in superior style and includes a nespresso coffee machine. There is a private jetty and kayaks are available so that you can explore and enjoy the island from the water as well as from the apartment itself.
    Thesen Island is a beautiful estate made up of many islands. It is secure and accordingly offers peace of mind. There are tennis courts, squash courts, walking paths, a maze, a bird hide, a private beach, a park, an outdoor gym and more.
  • super friendly hostess, easy check-in.

    Ingo2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Jenny’s place. The location is amazing - Thesen Island is beautiful and super secure. We loved the water views (particularly seeing Knysna heads from our bedroom window). Jenny’s place provided everything we needed (including bbq briquettes and dishwasher tabs - which is a rarity!), was super comfortable with quality towels and linen. It was so good to be able to borrow kayaks for a paddle through the waterways.

    Caroline2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely, lovely apartment on Thesen - which we loved! We had a couple of issues with check in - absolutely not Jenny’s fault! - but mainly due to the incredibly strict security on the islands. Jenny MORE than made up for this, even though it truly wasn’t her issue. We also had a night staying at Jenny’s other property, Picket and Post which was A DREAM, stunning! It was the best nights sleep I had over the whole time in SA. I’d really encourage you to check out that one too. Thanks Jenny! X

    Rebecca2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • An extraordinary flat, cosy and equipped with everything that make a stay easy and relaxed. We very much enjoyed staying there.

  • If you want to stay - in a beautiful furnitured appartment on a safe spot on Thesen Island in Knysna? - nearby all the benefits Knysna has to offer? - In an appartment that offers so many little things that tourists like to have? - in a place where you can meet detailled perfection? You must stay at Jenny's appartment! Highly recommended.

    Marij2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny's apartment is a lovely cozy home away from home. The check in with picture was super easy and we didn't need any further assistance. Makes it easy to check in any time, perfect if you don't know exactly when to arrive. There are many well thought of details in the apartment. The surrounding on thesen Island is very quite and peaceful, perfect if you want to relax a little bit. We also took the canopies to swirl around the little channels.

  • Jenny's place is gorgeous - very stylish and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and only wish we'd had more time! Would definitely recommend Freshline Fisheries for dinner and we also loved Enricos as per Jenny's suggestions.

    Parisian chic on the water. A pied-à-terre in calming cappuccino froth, marshmallow white and whispering cloud. Whether you are snuggled under the down duvets or you are relaxing on the patio, you will feel relaxed and content at this home away from home. Life should always be like this: graceful.
    The two en suite bedrooms are dressed in fine white cotton, down and linen. Both bathrooms have showers. The living area comprises an open plan lounge and kitchen and a generous patio with built in barbeque, which overlooks the canals for evenings with perfect sunsets and views. There is WIFI and DSTV with the full bouquet of channels. The kitchen is fitted in superior style and includes a nespresso coffee machine. There is a private jetty and kayaks are available so that you can explore and enjoy the island from the water as well as from the apartment itself.
    Thesen Island is a beautiful estate made up of many islands. It is secure and accordingly offers peace of mind. There are tennis courts, squash courts, walking paths, a maze, a bird hide, a private beach, a park, an outdoor gym and more.
  • The facilities are excellent, modern apartment, with all utensils and linens and towels of very high quality, the condo and the apartment are very safe, the place was extremely clean, we loved meeting Knysna and staying in Thesand Island, it was an incredible experience , we were positively surprised from start to finish.

  • This place was a dream, we weren’t expecting the location to be so beautiful. We had a lovely time there and enjoyed going out on the kayaks around the waterways every morning. So stylish and well furnished inside. We will definitely come back to stay here if we come back to Knysna in the future.

  • Jenny's apartment is magnificent! It is exceptionally clean! The place is very shawl and above all, very safe ... Do not enter the complex who wants !!! There are several good restaurants within walking distance. Jenny had left us little touches (chocolates) that was much appreciated. I strongly advise not to hesitate to rent this place for a visit to Knysna. Michel

  • Jenny was very welcoming and the beautifully decorated house is in the most beautiful location. Loved our stay and we felt very much at home. It was a five minute walk from the restaurants on the island which was very convenient. Would definitely suggest it to anyone who is coming to the area.
