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!

A wonderful weekend to a well equipped, clean cottage with lovely views and within walking distance to the lagoon. We will definitely return for a longer stay. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Such attention to detail in the chalet , with virtually every cooking appliance supplied . Towels were immaculately clean and replaced daily. Beds were so comfortable , it became an effort to leave them /.

Cannot fault the location, right on the beach within walking distance of the East Head Cafe for a great breakfast. However, we did feel the chalets are rather squashed in, with very tight parking and little privacy. There was no air conditioning in the bedroom, which made for very hot nights (even with the sea breeze). The kitchen is well...

We stayed here for three nights during our South Africa Odyssey. From Nyaru to Knysna was a 1.5 hr drive along the coastal road, sea to our right and hills to our left. Under Milkwood Chalets is accessed via a road that runs from just past Knysna centre out to the heads. Basically 'head for the heads' and you won't...

We were only there for one night thank goodness.... our wooden chalet on the mid level was in direct sunlight & with a noisy inefficient ceiling fan in the lounge/kitchen area it really was hot as hades & most uncomfortable. There are guards wondering around the complex all night & several bright security lights which shone through gaps in curtain/windows......

This is truly a gem. The friendly staff makes you feel at home from the minute you arrive. The chalets are comfortable and clean, and to top it all, serviced every day. The kitchen is well equipped with all the Le Creuset accessories. We have never felt this comfortable and relaxed while on holiday. The kids were out on the...

Great spot in a very special place. Fantastic views from our unit (Bayview). Received a visit from a Knysna Loure! Shy little fellow. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We cant wait for the opportunity to visit again.

Three couples sharing accommodation for three nights. The accomodation was really comfortable with well furnished rooms and fantastic living rooms, kitchen, balcony and access to the lagoon. It is self catering and the kitchen has absolutely everything one could wish for. The Le Creuset kitchenware is a nice upmarket touch. The main bedroom was stunning but understandably rooms 2 and...
