Despite government restrictions on access to sea and the lagoon we thoroughly enjoyed a change of scenery and the beauty of Leisure Isle. We felt very safe in our house and loved the walks and bicycle rides around the area. We will definitely be returning so that we can do all the things that lockdown prohibited us from doing!

This is a gem! Beautiful view and the house had absolutely everything we needed. Wonderful small touches that made us feel so welcome, like the fire burning when we arrived. And all the beds had electrical blankets which was lovely.

The Nest was a very clean, comfortable and space for myself and my dog Mac. The staff were friendly and helpful and very accommodating of Mac. The space is safely enclosed for Dogs and there was a lovely big open area for dogs to run. The swimming and beach areas around the lagoon were just a short walk away. Mac and I explored Leisure Isle and as a single woman I felt very safe. We had a wonderful holiday.

It's a well equipped and comfortable unit, clean with easy access. I liked the Weber and wood provided where one could have a braai or just sit by the fire. When it started getting cold they also provided a gas heater as it get quite cold that time of the year.

Great location looking back towards Knysna Heads, super views set in nice gardens. The Cottage has a homely feel and theres bikes and canoes to use for guests. Good shower in separate bathroom and only let down by the poor ensuite bathroom. Bath etc needs replacing and updating.

Quiet and wonderful getaway in spacious house. The tranquil setting was perfect. We appreciated all the amenities especially the full breakfast. They also have access to bicycles and kayaks so we extended our stay to enjoy those and further explore the area. Hope to return!

What a beautiful little setup and sooo close to the lagoon. Extra little perks of bikes and kayaks were amazing! The Shed is basic but we were allowed to make use of the bigger fridge and staff kitchen if needed. The Shed area is private and also has a little braai area. The filter coffee and plunger was greatly appreciated! Staff are extremely helpful and friendly.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Nest. Private, cosy, well decorated, good bathroom with thick towels, comfortable bed with electric blanket + plenty of extra blankets, if you don't like electric. Lovely wooden deck to sit and have meals outside. Beautiful gardens with plenty of bird life. The bicycles were an added bonus, and we used these morning and evenings to explore the island.

We felt very comfortable with all the services of the nest. We received excellent reception food and breakfast. The room was very clean and it had chic details as well as high level furniture. We would definitely recommend this place
