I have just returned from a fantastic holiday in SA. Myself and my fiancé stayed here for two nights and really couldn’t have hoped for better. The chalet itself was kitted out very well and you really don’t need to leave (providing you bring food/drink etc with you). We made use of the Bri on the veranda on our first...

Shared a two bedroomed cabin with friends when touring In South Africa. Great facilities, two bedrooms two bathrooms, parking for the Bakkie, outdoor brai, TV and wifi included. Great views of the lagoon and within easy reach on the town. Maid service was included in the self catering price which compared to UK was very reasonable!

With their price offer this one is best Knysna stay, waterfront chalets are awsome. Check in & check out was quick. Small but very well equipped kitchen, nice view from Bedroom and main room. They were quick to offer services.

Under Milkwood honeymoon chalet was a favourite stop for us on our trip. Right near the Knysna heads and with an amazing view. The chalet was clean and well finished. The staff were friendly. And the use of a sea kayak made paddling in the lagoon a highlight.

We have just stayed here in October and it was amazing! My wife used to stay here on holiday when she was a child (it has changed management since then), so it was very special to come back here and with her own family. It is close to the Heads and Knysna itself is only a 5 minute drive away....

My client and his wife and very young son stayed a week, and they're planning to go back next year. He said the staff are fantastic and friendly, and their overall experience was the best they had ever had.
