All the best
- We had a memorable and romantic stay at Saffron House.
Getting engaged there just made it all the more special. Hopefully we'll be back for the honeymoon.
- We had a beautiful time - thank you! Just far too short. Hopefully we can come and visit again for a longer period and enjoy to the fullest what Saffron house and Thesen Island has to offer.
- We had a great stay! Really a lovely place and has an excellent vibe - fresh and luxurious!
We can really recommend it for a great holiday!
- My friend and I stayed at Saffron House for a weekend in May 2013.
Thesen Island is beautiful. The house is easy to find. It is close to shops and restaurants - walking distance. It is also close to the centre of Knysna which is a quick drive or a 15 minute or so walk if you have no transportation.
Saffron House is very modern, with fancy lighting switches that are well labelled and easy to use. It is stylishly decorated and practical while being warm and inviting at the same time, the space draws you in, enticing you to relax. The bedrooms are spacious, warm and comfortable. There is plenty of cupboard space and extra blankets. We slept very well. The bathrooms are nice and spacious. The heated towel railings are a nice touch. There were extra towels in the cupboard if required. The kitchen is fully equipped with quality cutlery, crockery, pots and casserole dishes. The separate scullery and laundry room is handy with the added bonus of hiding all the dirty dishes. The living area is relaxing with comfortable couches and a big TV with DSTV. I would visit again just to be able to entertain in the open plan space that is perfect for spending time with friends and family. Having breakfast on the deck was a highlight for us, so serene. It was the perfect start to the day as the tranquillity and beauty revived body and soul. There were more facilities that we didn't use, like the laundry, dining room, the braai area and the jetty. There is a garage for one car. The house is kept very clean. Leesta, the cleaning lady is friendly.
After a long drive to Knysna it was a pleasure to walk into a house where you were welcomed by not only a lovely space but a home prepared with care; light on, heat on, milk in the fridge, everything ready for us just to enjoy. It is very quiet and we had a wonderful, relaxing stay. BUT it was too short to enjoy the wonderful house. We love it so much that we are planning another visit and inviting more friends to join us.
