      Really enjoyed the house - spacious and well kitted out. We had our own powerboat and it was a treat to moor it at the house's private jetty - made getting to and from the lagoon for skiing so much easier. My only suggestion for the house would be a Nespresso coffee machine :)Also enjoyed Thesen Island very much - beautiful secure environment. Was great for my small kids who spent much of their holiday cycling around on the island and playing soccer at the clubhouse lawn.

      Great house, great location. My young girls had loads of fun canoeing, fishing, cycling and swimming. We had a superb stay and will definitely return and recommend to friends.
