Trevor and Sandy were very helpful with suggested places to visit whilst in transit from Franschhoek to Kysna. The apartment was modern and fully equipped and had great views over the Thesens Island canals.

This is a fantastic, secure, comfortable and extremely clean place in a wonderful and quiet setting. The space is well equipped and you can use the canoes to explore the waterways. There are restaurants within a 20 minute walk. Trevor and Sandy are helpful and gave us hints and tips about the surrounding area before we arrived. Although it was not a problem for us, there are some steep wooden steps up to the accommodation so if you have any mobility issues this is something to be aware of. Would definitely recommend this place and wished our 2 night stay could have been longer.

So glad you enjoyed your stay and trust you managed to see and experience all the other exciting places you had planned to visit after leaving Knysna. We do hope you will visit us again in the not too distant future.

This house was wonderful! The island is great, there are fantastic restaurants on and around the island, and it's such a great place to be. Plus kayaking through the island canals was amazing

Trevor and Sandy's place is highly recommendable. Situated in a secure complex on Thesen Island the apartment is clean, quiet, comfortable and well appointed and very close to all amenities and activities that Knysna has to offer. I have a temperamental back, so comfortable beds are a must for me. The apartment certainly triple ticks that box. Thank you for a truly wonderful stay. Pete and Sal

Trevor and Sandy's place is the perfect spot in Knysna. It is centrally located in a very secure, beautiful estate. The apartment is very close to the Waterfront with numerous restaurants. It is even more beautiful than the pictures on the website. They were the friendliest people to deal with and check in went smoothly. The WiFi is very fast and reliable. The bedroom has ample cupboard space and a stunning comfortable bed. I hope to stay there again soon!

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.
