Own a private island in Knysna

Currently listed with Sue Abernethy of RE/MAX Coastal, this state-of-the-art home is surrounded by water and the approach is over a private causeway. With not one, but two private jetties, plus its own private beach, this luxury island is located within Thesen Islands, a world-class marina complex within the Knysna Estuary with its own beach and clubhouse. There are only six individual islands on Thesen Islands, of which Num Num is one.

The main house has sliding stack glass doors in all the rooms, opening out onto the decks and overlooking the water. The large kitchen, with its own separate laundry/scullery and pantry, is kitted out with Miele appliances and opens to the lounge and dining room. Downstairs, buyers will find three spacious en suite bedrooms. The main bedroom is found upstairs and has its own separate lounge.

To accommodate the many guests who will be begging for an invite to your private island, there is a separate entrance to a large self-contained flat above the garages, ideal for visiting guests or family.

There is also air-conditioning and underfloor heating throughout the home, as well as a modern sound system is linked to all the rooms in the house.

If you’re ever able to peel yourself away from the luxury and comfort of this private island, you can explore the unique lifestyle of security, fun, community that Thesen Islands has to offer. The island hosts sports of all kinds, including cycling, water sports, tennis, squash, a putting golf course and wonderful walks around the island. It is also within easy access to Thesen Harbour Town, with its quaint shops and lovely restaurants, farm-to-table produce, artists, artisans and crafters, community projects and initiatives.
