About our home

A classy home, perfect for a relaxed holiday on sublime Leisure Isle. Sleeps 5, has two full en-suite bedrooms, with a third bedroom to share one of en-suite bathrooms. There is also a cloakroom, and a hot/cold outdoor shower. The beach is but 150 steps away, and a fabulous communal pool/garden adjacent.

The house has superb indoor-outdoor flow, so summer eating/BBQ-ing will almost certainly be alfresco on the patio.

Leisure Isle is a unique place in South Africa, a safe and tranquil and hugely popular residential/holiday island situated in the Knysna estuary on the beautiful Garden Route. It is perfect for a holiday that involves beaching, swimming, boating, cycling, golf, walking, running, tennis, bowls, and, of course, exploring the region's many natural and gastronomical attractions.

You may use our two e-bikes for easy cycling around the island and surrounds. You will need a car (or we can negotiate use of ours); use of double garage and plenty of off-street parking.

Where is it?


Safe and tranquil in the heart of the Garden Route, Leisure Isle is unique in South Africa – and is widely acknowledged as “the jewel in Knysna’s crown” and undoubtedly a favourite holiday destination.

It is also one of the country’s best places to live, and no wonder the choice of many residents as well as a stream of ‘swallows’, Europeans and Britons who flock south to escape the harsh Northern Hemisphere winter to enjoy its fabulous weather and environment. Little do they know, ironically, that some of the best Knysna weather is in winter, when days are frequently warm, sunny and windless!

Our home is in the north-western area of Leisure Isle – a short stroll from Bollard Bay beach (Knysna’s only one); Steenbok Park; and from the small craft harbour, tennis courts and bowling greens.

Beautiful beaching, sublime and safe swimming, fishing, walking, cycling, canoeing and boating, and bird watching are among the things to do on the island. It is people and dog heaven! The excellent Knysna Golf Course and the awesome Pezula Championship Course are but a few minutes’ drive away.

This is a great spot to explore SA's gorgeous Garden Route, ie the southern Cape coast, and all it offers.

Buzzy restaurants
There are many excellent eateries in Knysna - you can wine and dine here for a fraction of what you'd pay in Europe or N America. Dollars, pounds and euros go a long way in SA!

Knysna is a small town, but has excellent shops.
Walks in the park
Leisure Isle is one big park, with a beach and a nature reserve.
