Taliesin is one of the most beautiful houses in a perfect location on Knysna Lagoon. It is as close to the waters edge as you can be. High tide comes up to the pool deck. Surrounded by mature pretty gardens it is quiet and private, but still only a short walk away from Thesen Village, Knysna Town and facilities that make a family holiday great.

It is situated on Plantation Island, one of the Thesen Island in Knysna Lagoon. The island is connected to the mainland by a long course way and the community is gated, making the island and it’s beaches private and secure.

Taliesin sleeps and dines twelve adults in luxury but the accommodation is adaptable for numbers as small as two. A full time maid helps make your stay relaxed and carefree. There is a wonderful feeling of space throughout the house. The rooms are large with lots of windows and high ceilings letting the Knysna light and breezes in.
