About Thesen Island Beach House

You will feel at home the moment you step into the lush, green courtyard with pool of this private family home.

The Beach House offers the best of both worlds: being on holiday while feeling at home; but it offers more as it combines the height of luxury with the exclusivity of Thesen Islands.

Self Catering Accommodation

Three en suite bedrooms and a guest suite, all with comfortable, high quality beds for a good night’s sleep, accommodate eight guests with under floor heating and Premium DStv throughout the bedrooms and surround sound throughout the house. Heated towel rails and shaver points are standard in the bathrooms and towels and linen are provided.

A private king en suite with shower opens onto the pool and leads off of the open plan dining room and lounge with guest water closet. A convenient bar counter in the dining area doubles as a serving counter and this open space also features under floor heating.


A large internal entertainment area connects the more formal lounge with the very comfortable family room and leads onto the massive deck overlooking the waterways. This covered deck, with transparent roller blinds, is the ideal venue for entertaining friends or spending quality time with the entire family. With a gas braai, kettle braai, Jacuzzi and large gazebo, the deck is sure to be the most lived in space during summer!

The floating jetty also ensures that easy access for boats during any tide and guests have use of the canoes provided. A discreet, warm water outside shower allows for quick rinse offs before relaxing in the Jacuzzi, jumping in the pool or enjoying the facilities inside.

While it remains as sophisticated as the rest of the house, the family room exudes comfort and a sense of being home and offers a television with a PVR decoder streaming the Premium DStv package, DVD player and air conditioner.

The open plan, full kitchen overlooks this den and features filtered drinking water, a refrigerator with ice and water on demand, a gas hob with electric oven and a microwave oven, while the separate scullery / laundry offers a dishwasher, a washing machine and clothes dryer. The scullery / laundry opens onto a private courtyard, perfect for locking the family’s bicycles and other toys away!

An easy staircase leads to a study nook and wireless connectivity to the Internet is available. A guest suite with queen sized bed and two king bedrooms, all en suite with private balconies complete the upper level. The king beds in the downstairs bedroom and upstairs guest suite may be split to provide two twin beds each.
