Location description from owner

The Western Cape region

Knysna nestles on the banks of a beautiful lagoon in the heart of the Garden Route, South Africa. It is surrounded by a natural paradise of lush indigenous forests, tranquil lakes and golden beaches, making it a real natural wonderland.

It offers many activities and attractions to a wide variety of people. "People. beauty and mystery" is what comes to mind when describing Knysna. The town nestles between the impressive Outeniqua Mountains and the Indian Ocean, with the world-renowned forests encircling it like a protective mantle. The 21 ha estuary is protected from the sea by the monolithic sandstone "Heads" - silent sentinels down the centuries of the rich history of this unique part of "paradise of earth".

Thesen Island

In and around Knysna one will find a selection of fine restaurants, seafood taverns, pubs, coffee shops and eateries, to match your mood or budget. For the shopper, there are interesting shops tucked away around every corner, authentic African traders and for the person with a passion for history, well, Knysna will intrigue you...

“An absolute must stay, breathtaking views from a perfect location”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2013

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.

“Magnificant House”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2012

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. From the reception at the security gate to the daily housekeeping service was excellent. Taliesin was perfectly situated for all our holiday requirements. A short drive daily took us to all the tourist hotspots in the Knysna region.

“Most wonderful house in Knysna”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2011

A perfect stay: friendly welcome, house is in a very quiet location, but near enough to shops and restaurants. Its very stylish decorated and offers so many lounges inside and outside. The maid is very kind. A big table accommodates up to twelve guests.The views from all rooms and decks are so beautiful. The garage offers space for two cars. Internet connection is fast and easy to handle. We'd love to come back.
