Your summer holiday on Knysna’s Leisure Isle
Beautiful Knysna Villas

Beautiful Knysna Villas is excited to offer families a Summer Holiday on beautiful Leisure Island – sunshine, beaches, watersports, fishing, boating, cyclepaths, walking routes, lawn bowls, tennis, picnics, local coffee shops! This is the island home for Sam and her family (owners of Beautiful Knysna Villas) and their various friends who own these homes and have offered to share their piece of paradise this summer.

Leisure Isle is one of only two islands in the Knysna Lagoon and is accessed by a causeway across the water monitored by private security. It has a happy ‘old world’ holiday feel with families, dogs, children and the elderly all enjoying the space together with the local community.

We couldn’t think of a better place to spend your summer.

Here is a taste, before we go to press, of our Summer Holiday Collection available for families looking for a break for two weeks or more this Christmas holiday season;

Waters’ Edge


Spend all day at or on the water without ever leaving home. Park your boat directly outside on a private mooring. Walk out the door off your lawn and onto the beach and drop a fishing line or use the house surf ski and paddle board to explore the waterways.


Relax into the open-plan living space on the ground floor with discrete lounge areas, a cosy fireplace, two outdoor lounge areas and various dining options. A fully equipped chef’s kitchen all facing the water make entertaining a dream! Or just sit back and request our in-house private chef to take care of your needs.


In the protected garden, a shaded north-facing terrace with a swimming pool, pool loungers, braai, and table tennis table beckons for family time. On the waterside living areas open to the views and lingering sunsets, yet more seating, another braai, a garden area and direct access to the tidal beach and lagoon for swimming and water activities.


Six generous double bedrooms allow private space for everyone and a separate smart TV lounge upstairs accommodates those who must get their dose of sports, or the kids who need a ‘parentals’ break.


It’s not necessary to say too much about this home. You are unlikely to find a more beautiful, well equipped or user-friendly holiday space in Knysna. With everything you need for a perfect holiday either in the house or at your doorstep, all you need to do is gather the family together and arrive!


Summer Home


A clever renovation combines light, space and function in this home created for a family with young teenage children who love comfort, sunshine, and beautiful design. 5 Bedrooms (sleeps 10) and 4.5 bathrooms built around a central living area with outdoor covered patio, pool and garden create a perfect family holiday space.


The open plan kitchen, with every modern convenience at the heart of the home, connects to the inside dining and living areas. Beautiful, honed-wooden floors throughout warm and connect the living areas culminating in the chill lounge with a huge L-shape sofa and a flat-screen TV in a double volume space leading to the 2 downstairs bedrooms and the stairs to the 3 upstairs bedrooms.


Aluminium stacking folding doors slide away to open to the shaded veranda and comfortable outdoor lounge area, pool and garden.


Situated in a friendly and safe neighbourhood and just a few minutes stroll to the beach. Pack your bags. It’s holiday time!




Our third beautiful holiday home on Leisure Isle just shouts “lazy daze’ and we are so excited to be able to offer summer sunshine with seamless indoor/outdoor open plan living areas opening to the garden and pool.

The terrace patio has a comfy lounge to laze while you keep an eye on the pool from under a shaded veranda. The cutest peaceful place to enjoy your morning cuppa in the sun on the breakfast terrace under the shade of the old tree, two braais and alfresco dining means you really don’t need to be anywhere else. Except that the beach is just a two-minute stroll away!


The pool is slightly raised and a fully enclosed garden with lawn area allows for outdoor play while the games room with a pool table and TV make for a kids heaven while allowing you to be together this holiday.


A total of 4 spacious bedrooms en suite include 3 bedrooms upstairs. The 4th bedroom has a separate private entrance and is a self-contained cottage with a bathroom, lounge and kitchenette. Perhaps grandparents or older kids would appreciate some privacy?


Prices from R12 500 to R45 000/night for these and various villas in our Summer Holiday Collection.
