On the tidal shores of the famous Knysna Lagoon, lies a collection of 16 self-catering timber chalets, nestled amongst leafy vegetation and indigenous Milkwood trees.  The tranquil setting offers guests a haven of leisure and comfort.  It is the only resort at the world-renouned Knysna Heads to have direct access to the beach, which is framed by the Featherbed Nature Reserve and the majestic Outeniqua Mountains on the far horizon.

Perhaps while relaxing on your patio, you will even catch a glimpse of one of South Africa’s most striking birds – the scarlet-winged Knysna Loerie.

To quote one of our guests:  “Check into the three-star Under Milkwood for a four-star experience.”

4 x Waterfront Chalets offering direct access to the beach with lagoon views

5 x Middle Chalets which are behind the Waterfront Chalets, not offering lagoon views but only 20-40 meters from the beach

7 x Hillside Chalets are situated at the back of the resort, most of them offering lagoon views but some with forest views only.  They are approximately 50-80 meters from the beach
