About Island Nest

Island Nest is situated in the idyllic lakeside village of Leisure Isle, an island that is surrounded by the waters of the Knysna estuary and linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway.

This one-bedroom flat is ideal for a couple, but can accommodate a third adult or two young children on a sleeper couch. The newly renovated flat is fully equipped and well furnished with all linen and towels, DStv, a DVD player, free Wi-Fi access and the use of a communal pool and gardens.

It is a mere 150 steps to the gorgeous Bollard Bay beach with pristine sand, safe swimming and a variety of water activities. The village is a haven of peace and tranquility, where life is enjoyed at a leisurely pace.

      Gael was absolutely amazing, so friendly, and accommodating. I really cant say enough good things about her. We felt at home from the second we walked in. The accommodation was pristine, comfortable and relaxing. Would definitely recommend a stay here

      We loved the location of the property, and the amazing and safe areas to walk our Yorkies. To have the Knysna lagoon just around the corner from you, is a truly wonderful experience.

      We loved Island Nest, it was modern, bright and comfortable. The bedroom was five star, lovely comfortable king bed with beautiful white linen. The lounge area was comfortable and well furnished.The bathroom was not so good but I see now it has been totally renovated. Although I gave it four stars when we stayed there with the new bathroom would now give it five stars. The owners were very pleasant.
