A fun place to stay for 2-3 days with friends or family. Great location to discover knysna and have easy access to a beach. Beautifully decorated chalet with quality apparels, beds are super comfy and the view is fun. Definitely a good stop for knysna

Set in a lovely tranquil bay these cabins are fully equipped, rustic yet very comfortable as well as quite spacious. Great to have two bathrooms as well as all the le cruzet hardware! Right on the beach!

Stayed here for 4 nights, during our time in South Africa this was my absolute favourite! I loved the beach and being able to go kayaking. We stayed in a middle chalet (so no view) but it was literally 2 seconds, down some steps, to the beach. The chalet was lovely, there were 3 adults but more than enough room...

Loved the chalets with big trees and stunning views. The beds were so comfortable and cleaned every day. The lagoon and private beach were a real treat, with kayaks and boards you can use for free, and the Kynsna heads just a short walk away. Will definitely be back, would just be nice to have an aircon, although the fans...

We really enjoyed our stay at Under the Milkwood. The rooms have a lovely view and we enjoyed the canoes. The cleaning staff didn't come in until late afternoon so the place was left in a mess with beds still unmade. The construction site across our room was annoying but understand that is beyond control. We did enjoy our stay...

For a relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle of city life and the rat race, this was a perfect spot to unwind for a while. The chalets contained just about everything we could think of and are very well appointed and serviced. Well worth a visit.

We love the location and rustic charm of Under Milkwood chalets. Stunning views of the lagoon, just a few steps from the water, so one can have a swim or kayak when you feel like it. It is a tidal lagoon but just a short walk along the sand when it is low tide. Just a 5 minute walk to...

Idyllic picturesque spot for a complete getaway. Perfectly appointed self catering cottages, ours right on the lagoon. Lapping cool water within metres. No crowds. Great vista from the patio. Warm friendly staff.

Great location, facilities, accommodation. The staff were welcoming, friendly, professional and helpful. Great for water activities like Kayaking. The views from the small beach are gorgeous, and it's only a short walk to the Knysna Heads. It's great for peace and quiet, or a lovely stroll along the coastline under the trees. Older people or those with walking impairments may...

We've been here a few times and love it more every time. It's got a stunning private beach, attentive staff, great location, properly equipped kitchen and is kept very clean and neat. Is one of Knysna's best spots. Will be back this December!
