Sedgefield house description

Taliesin is a beautifully designed house in a perfect location. It is situated on a private island in Knysna Lagoon. At high tide the water comes up to the pool deck. Views are stunning.

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 10 m pool or the safe waterways. It is steps from the island beach.
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 height ceilings.
