Holiday Rental House
Taliesin sleeps twelve adults in luxury. It has many decks to relax and take in the stunning views. Heaven for the bird watcher as it is steps from the bird reserve. Feeling energetic you can swim in the heated 10m pool or the safe waterways. As it is steps from the beach you could swim there. A daily house keeper looks after the house and you so this is a real holiday for all! It has been designed to make the most of the Knysna light and breezes with many windows and high full hieght ceilings. The area is stunning and there are many things and places to explore. ...Taliesin sleeps twelve adults in luxury. It has many decks to relax and take in the stunning views.
