Leisure Island is one of 2 islands on the Knysna Lagoon.  It is among the most desirable addresses on the Garden Route and is accessed via a private causeway with 24 hour security.  The island has a relaxed holiday feeling and life takes place at a leisurely pace with families out walking and cycling enjoying the parks and beaches, fishing, paddling and swimming in the safe waterways of the island.  The beach, 2 minutes walk from Gladd House is a child friendly beach with calm waters and amazing views over the lagoon to the Heads and mountains.  Gladd House is a 2 minute walk to Steenbok Park, a lovely community nature reserve with cycle tracks and walking paths, tennis courts, bowling greens and boat harbour all bordering on the beautiful Knysna Lagoon Estuary.
