Situated on an award-winning Blue Flag marina in the heart of Knysna, Thesen Island is a unique development of luxury waterfront properties.
Thesen Islands comprises 19 man-made islands that are linked by bridges that arch over the pristine waterways. There are 512 free-standing homes and 56 trendy apartment suites. Many of these are holiday homes however, there are permanent residents.
The design of the houses is somewhat regulated, and they all display a colonial maritime style. This is particularly fitting as Knysna has an important maritime history.
There are private beaches that are only open to those staying on the island, making them safe enough for children to while away sweltering summer days, just meters from the houses. The park includes an exciting maze, veggie patch, bird hide, and plenty of swings, slides, jungle gyms and other toys or activities.
there are two all-weather tennis courts, a squash court, an 18-hole putting green, permanent volleyball posts on the beach, and cricket practice nets next to the clubhouse. Locals love walking, jogging and cycling around the island too, and there are yoga classes at the clubhouse several times a week.
