Saffron House on Thesen Island in Knysna is a magnificent 4 Bedroom House on the Waterway. Rates from R3 310.00 per night.





Saffron House in Knysna is a magnificent family friendly home situated on the exclusive Thesen Island.

Knysna is well known as the jewel of the Garden Route and, perched within the Knysna estuary, Thesen Islands offers residents and visitors not only a luxurious lifestyle, but piece of mind.

The luxurious Saffron House can accommodate 8 guests comfortably in 4 spacious bedrooms.  The upstairs section consists of the main full en-suite bedroom with DSTV as well as a double and twin room which share a bathroom with shower. The master suite opens onto a private deck furnished with two loungers and a private Jacuzzi overlooking the waterways – makes for the perfect coffee corner before tackling the day.

The downstairs section comprises an open plan kitchen, dining room and a well-appointed lounge with DSTV which opens onto a deck positioned directly over the waterway. The dining area leads to a deck complete with braai facilities and access to a private jetty. A double room with separate bathroom completes the downstairs section.

Guests may enjoy the use of a two-seater adult canoe, as well as two children’s canoes, or they may wish to moor their own boat at the private jetty which can accommodate power boats up to 7m in length.

Saffron House also offers visitors a single garage and laundry room. Child safety is a priority – the deck over the estuary is completely enclosed and the garden fully walled.

The house is fully serviced Monday through to Saturday (excluding public holidays).

With luxury furnishings throughout and equipped with modern conveniences, Saffron House invites you to settling into your family home away from home, where you can sit back and even enjoy some fishing from your deck!
