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.

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


Self Catering Timber Chalets
Thirteen of our chalets have two bedrooms, comprising a double and twin room and two bathrooms.

A sleeper couch in the living room provides additional space for the extra family member.

Maerose is our luxury hillside chalet with a refreshing, light timber-stained interior.

Curlew is a one-bedroom, split-level chalet with an upstairs living area and a bathroom downstairs. This is the perfect honeymoon getaway with its private balcony amongst the treetops.

All chalets feature a fully-equipped kitchen containing all the conveniences, such as stove and hob, fridge/freezer and microwave. Le Creuset cookware adds a bright and luxurious touch.

Each chalet has its own sundeck and BBQ facilities.

Relax on holiday whilst our friendly housekeeping staff service your chalet daily.
