Best self catering resort I've ever stayed at. Everything of the best. The log cabins gave such a relaxing feel. The lagoon was great, lots of activities. Great braai area. Complementary canoes and sup boards were great!!

Lovely bungalows with a good braai area. Middle row no seaview, but the front bungalows best location, excellent stay overall. Fantastic setting and well equiped kitchen. Good value for money out of season especially. My kids loved the kayaks on the lake. We will be back!

We had the most wonderful stay at Under Milkwood. The location and setting is just perfect. The cottages are perfectly adequate for a family of 4 and they were serviced every day. Loved the Le Cureset cookware!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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-renowned 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. ... more   less
