Thoroughly enjoyed my 6 days here. Light and airy apartment with balcony over looking the water. Ideal for short stays with good security and private parking. I would definitely stay again.

I came to stay at Thesen Island for 3 nights having stayed in Knysna a couple of years back. I was blown away with Cameron's kind hospitality and the apartment was top notch. Within walking distance to restaurants on Thesen Island and a quick drive to all Knysna has to offer on Main Road, including the Waterfront. A bookshelf full of timeless classics and a patio with a tranquil view, it makes for the perfect getaway. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday away from the big city buzz.

Our honeymoon was a trip through the garden route, and what a pleasure it was to set up at Hammock Island! It's luxurious, spacious, neat, private and the host is extremely friendly and always willing to accommodate ones requests. I would most definitely recommend a stay here for any reason. Its great for two people and the view from the deck is amazing. Hoping we can return soon.

We had an excellent couple of days here. Easy walking distance to restaurants on Thesen island itself but Cameron really helped to make our stay memorable by all the restaurants hints and tips that he gave to us. He also suggested that we stay in Prince Albert on our way to Franschhoek...this we would not have missed. Cameron was a great host.

We really enjoy your loft and it's setting. The nice touches like the DVDs, coffee machine, iPod system, magazines, etc makes it stand out from the rest! We really miss the spectacular view of the mirror like canal water in the mornings!

A very nice place to stay! And Cameron's restaurant guide will become as famous as Guild Michelin! We will be back.

Someone asked me how much it would be to buy a flat like this one. Well, you can't. I doubt if any other holiday flat on Thesen's has the views that H43 has nor the comforts. The owner Cameron Searle was one of the very first purchasers pre-construction and really had the pick of the litter. The experience itself of staying here is utter relaxation and complete luxury. Walking distance is Thesen's Harbour Town with its many fine restaurants and the extraordinary Ile de Pain bakery cafe where tout South Africa gathers for brunch. I look forward to returning often in the future!
