The Leisure Collective: Seaside Cottage

  • 6 guests
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 3 bathrooms

Perched on the banks of an expansive, sparkling lagoon that swirls out to sea between the two sandstone cliffs known as the Heads, the tucked-away town of Knysna has long been one of the Garden Route’s most precious gems. There are quirky restaurants, boutique shops and countless natural attractions – and when you’re done with all of those, there’s Leisure Isle, a tranquil island oasis surrounded by the lagoon and connected to the mainland via a narrow causeway.

Here, the cars cruise slowly and the kids ride bicycles freely, while holidaymakers lounge on the beaches, splash in the lagoon’s gentle waters, browse through the scattering of shops and restaurants or spot birds in the Steenbok Nature Reserve. Here is also where you’ll find The Leisure Collective’s eight unique accommodation options, each tailored to suit a particular type of traveller. Ideally situated on the front of Leisure Island – just a stone’s throw from the water’s edge – Seaside Cottage is perfect for a family or group of friends, with a large and sunny garden, a cosy indoor fireplace and a sheltered braai area for windy days.
