Greenhole is situated on the beautiful blue, salt water lagoon of Leisure Isle.  There is a richness in nature and it is the birds, butterflies and sea creatures which make Greenhole Cottage a true haven.

Sitting on the Verandah, one can enjoy the constantly changing scene of flying kites and yachts sailing past.   We often ride bikes to the Leisure Island art gallery coffee shop, or walk through the water to the East Heads Cafe.  The children are constantly canoeing, fishing, cycling and occasionally on board some newly made friends yachts, sailing.  The large garden offers an abundance of bird life and beautiful butterflies, to enjoy watching from the courtyard.

Leisure Isle offers an incredible experience for all ages, the sandy beaches are ideal for little ones with their buckets and spades, the surfing teens can visit famous nearby surfing beaches or are welcome to paddle with the canoes in the garage, and the elderly can enjoy good flat walks around Leisure Isle, conversing with the local residents.  A highly recommended holiday destination for the whole family.

Greenhole is a three-bedroom cottage and sleeps 8 people.  One bedroom is en-suite and the other two share a bathroom, with a separate loo.

The spacious lounge is divided by a “good old fireplace that works” and also has DSTV. The room has wonderful views of the lagoon and towards the famous Knysna Heads.

The relaxed dining room adjacent to the lounge and kitchen, has room to seat 8 adults with easy access to the kitchen and the lovely courtyard.

Greenhole has a well equipped and stocked kitchen, including a dishwasher, and the laundry includes a washing machine and tumble drier.

The house opens up onto a sheltered courtyard complete with built in braai area – ideal for entertaining out of the weather.  The lovely lagoon view can still be enjoyed through the large windows visible from the courtyard!

The double garage provides security for vehicles as well as housing various canoes and bicycles which guests are welcome to use.

Domestic assistance is available daily, from Monday to Friday between 9am and 1pm, and weekends and public holidays by prior arrangement and at an additional fee.

Our rates are as advised by the local tourism authority.
