I loved our stay at Taliesin, it is a really spacious and well maintained home. We loved the view and although the weather wasn't great, the house and Thesen Island provided us with alot of activities to do.

Accommodation was wonderful and would highly recommend to anyone. Has to be the best position on the island, with an unobstructed view of Knysna, safe and secure.
