Waterside House on Thesen Island
Step into a piece of paradise on the canals of the Thesen Island marina, a multi award winning development located on the scenic Knysna estuary.
Waterside house is a rare gem on Thesen Island built in the colonial maritime architectural style. Walk through the front door into pure peace and tranquillity. The downstairs floor decorated in harmonious water colours consists of two en-suite bedrooms and an open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge. One bedroom is a double and the second bedroom is a twin. Both rooms have a shower and toilet en-suite. Leading off the kitchen (which is fully equipped with every modern appliance) and dining area, is a spacious sun deck with an outside lounge and jetty down to the canal. Here is the perfect place for sundowners and a braai (barbecue) in true South African style. There is a second deck off the lounge which is the perfect place to curl up and read a book while listening to the water lapping on the sides of the jetty.
Upstairs is a beautiful main bedroom, study and full en-suite bathroom which has a private sun deck leading off it for those much needed quiet moments. The second upstairs bedroom has an en-suite shower and toilet and its own sun deck.
Waterside house has full satellite DSTV for those guests who would like to catch up on the news, sport or would just like to relax in front of a movie. The Wi-Fi is available throughout the house.
If you wish Kanonkop House will host your entire stay with personal housekeeping and a cook to prepare your breakfasts (the most important meal of the day), as well as full concierge available 24 hours a day.
Thesen Island is linked by a causeway and bridge to the mainland of Knysna. It is within an easy 10 minutes’ walk to the scenic waterfront and town centre of Knysna. The main harbour town of Thesen Island is a mere 5 minute stroll from Waterside House. Here you will find an array of trendy restaurants and bars, an award-winning bakery and quaint boutiques.
