Local stone, unfinished brick & warm wood combine beautifully to create a modern Beach House with French farmhouse inspiration on a small Island. Luxurious relaxation, kick off your shoes, while enjoying More magnificent views across the Knysna Lagoon towards iconic views and the surrounding mountains. Wake up to views, roll out of white linen beds, pull on a T-shirt & walk on the beach, get out on the water for a swim or a paddle take a leisurely cycle or just laze at the pool. It’s that kind of holiday space. Easy. Relaxed. Unfussy. Choose your ‘chill’ space; Indoor & outdoor lounge areas & garden nooks all with views. Indoor & alfresco dining. Pool table & entertainment/TV lounge with full channel selections. Complimentary bar. Swimming pool with views, tanning terrace, sun loungers.
