Other things to note
Essential to have own transport! Only public transport to Knysna is by intercity bus from Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, or shuttle from George airport. However once on the Island one can walk to town and surrounds.
NB. Please include your Passport or ID number when making a booking as it is now a requirement for entry onto Thesen Island.
For safety, as apartment is not "child proof," plus pool and canal are not fenced off, we cannot accept "toddlers." Children of school going age (max 2) could be considered but will have to sleep on the couches and will have to be pre negotiated
No smoking in apartment! Guests will be required to sign indemnity and agree to comply with estate rules. No pets allowed by guests.
Please note as from 1 Dec 2016 guests will be required to forward Passport or ID numbers prior to arrival as Thesen Island has incorporated a biometric entry system and details need to be loaded onto the system. Drivers of vehicles will have two finger prints taken on arrival for entry "scanners" This will allow swift and free passage on and off the island for the duration of your stay.
While Wireless Internet is available please be be aware that it is not unlimited and any high usage requirements will have to be pre- arranged and paid upfront.
We enjoy entertaining, dining out, cycling, hiking, cruising on the canals and lagoon on the Knysna Estuary, playing bridge and of course travelling or flying to exotic places (I have my own aircraft and still fly from a nearby airstrip). Mostly we enjoy the ambiance that this magnificent lifestyle offers us.
