Under Milkwood Chalets
Ranked #1 of 106 Speciality Lodging in Knysna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Really impressed by the chalets - which were much better than we were expecting. Every possible cooking utensil - and everything le Creuset - down to the corkscrew and Cafetiere. Great view - easy access to the sea - and fun to have canoes for a paddle round the bay. 2 absolutely brilliant restaurants 300 metres down the road made the location even more perfect.

It was our second stay at Under Milkwood and this time as rewarding as last time. Unfortunately there was no breakfast any more, so we had to go to the next coffeeshop nearby. There we found a wide selection of various breakfast offers for a good price.

We would not hesitate to return to Under the Milkwood in Knysna as we so enjoyed our stay in February. The wooden chalets were confortable and the beds ultra good. It was appreciated to have someone cleaning up n a daily basis and this added to the experience. Beautiful walks and swims at our feet.
Gorgeous views nas delicious reataurants. I specially enjoyed suing the lovely range of Le Creuset which was in the cottage.

Fantastic place - with very nice houses.....the houses are very nice and clean. They are placed more or less directly to the beach. Perfect no matter it's with your Family, friends or for a weekend with your beloved.

We booked a waterfront cabin (Manchester) and were really impressed with the facilities. The staff were very friendly on arrival and ensured the baby camping cot was in the second bedroom (a tight fit between the two single beds, but the kids didn't seem to mind). I loved the Le Creuset goodies in the kitchen (and the pop-up shop on site offered a 10% discount to guests). The main bedroom had an amazing view onto the lagoon/estuary and a door opening onto the timber deck (the trees provided great shade). There were a handful of steps from our deck to the water! There was outdoor furniture on our deck as well as on the area right on the water's edge below our patio (and sun loungers down there too). A unique aspect is the kayaks you get to use (single or double) - we took a paddle on the water in a double kayak with the 3-year-old in the middle and the 1-year-old on the front. They had life jackets to use as well as a host of other water and sand 'toys'. The kids had a blast at low tide playing in the sand and swimming in the shallows. One negative would be the parking down at the bottom units - it's a bit of a tight squeeze when all the units are in use and if you're arriving in two cars, you'd need to park one in the off-street top parking (or municipal parking lot opposite the facility). On the whole though, a really magical experience and comes highly recommended!

Great location and friendly staff. good if you have your car so you can go to the city for meals (they don't have restaurant).
The cons is that they don't have A/C in the chalet and they don't provide Free WIFI.

We stayed in one of the Waterfront self catering chalets and had the most incredible time. Upon arrival we were given champagne and chocolates and the reception staff were very friendly. The chalets themselves are beautiful and filled with every modern convenience. The chalets are a few steps away from the lagoon and took full advantage of the kayaks for use. We were beyond happy with our stay and I would recommend this experience to everyone from couples to families with children.
