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 space

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.

Guest access

The island on which the apartment is located a secure haven, packed with activities. Tennis courts (rackets provided), squash courts, walking paths, canals, outdoor gym, putting green (a few clubs provided), small beach (umbrella, beach towels and picnic bag provided) and a bird hide, to name a few. A short stroll over a bridge will bring you to Thesen Harbour Town which is home to fabulous restaurants, world class bakery, coffee shops and shopping. The Knysna Waterfront is a 20 min walk away. Excursions and activities can be booked and taken from both the Waterfront and from Thesen Harbour Town.

We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and fantastic host, Jenny! From the home made crunchies to the special delivery of hot chocolate for my niece, Jenny was a great host! She was very flexible about arrivals and departure times as well, which made it easy. The apartment is stylish, clean, safe and has all of the amenities you could think of for a great stay. We particularly enjoyed walking over to Thesen Island Harbour town for dinner - so easy and convenient. We enjoyed our short stay at Thesen Island thoroughly and hope we will be back! Thanks again!!!

We had a wonderful stay on Thesen Island. Jenny's apartment is well located and only a few minutes walk from the bars and restaurants. Communication and check in was smooth and Jenny recommended a really good trip to Wilderness for a walk.

It is such a wonderful place to stay. Close to everything and so cosy. Beautifully decorated and definitely a place we would go back to. We were made to feel very welcome by the hostess on arrival and we will highly recommend this accommodation for a great experience.

The apartment is very tastefully decorated, to a 5 star standard. The kitchen utensils are good quality, and plentiful. Jenny has equipped the place with everything one could ask for, for a long term stay. The pictures represent an accurate reflection of the apartment, and everything worked well. Jenny is a caring, helpful host, who anticipates your possible needs. The property is probably the best value I have experienced, relative to cost, of all my rentals to date. Thank you, Jenny.

Fantastic spot. The place is so beautifully appointed. The attention to detail on the decor is incredible. Thesen Island is just a great spot for a quick holiday for two or an extended trip for the family. Recommended for sure.
