Travellers' Choice
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.

It was an average stay for us for many reasons, one being the parking which one was given - it was far from where our cottage was and with a little toddler to do up and down was not pleasant and also keeping in mind the price one paid. 2, The cottage for us was not well lit, I understand one was trying to create a feel, but didn’t quite work for us as a family. 3, one would have liked the cottage to be serviced daily or at least have an option to do so. 4, when you say that the cottage comes with a kitchenette one expects it to have the basics like salt, pepper, washing liquid for utensils as one end of using a lot with a child but unfortunately there was nothing. This stay didn’t work out for us but not to say it won’t work for other families. In terms of location, it’s nice.

We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with such detailed feedback about your stay. I am very sorry to hear that, although you enjoyed our location, several things throughout your stay did not meet your expectations. It was unfortunate that, although your chalet was close to the beach, Schooner doesn't have parking right by it like most of our chalets. Pre-covid, all our chalets were serviced daily. It is in order to minimise contact between staff and guests that servicing now only takes place every second day. We do, however, service daily if guests request it. This is all in our booking terms. Although we are a self-catering establishment, our chalets are stocked with dishwashing liquid, coffee, tea, milk, salt and pepper. Please note that your concerns have been passed on to our housekeeping management.

We enjoyed the log cabin feel and the proximity to the lagoon. The service was personalised and professional. The accommodation was well equipped and the beds comfortable. The view was a delight to wake up to.

We absolutely loved our stay at Under Milkwood! The chalet was so comfortable and had absolutely everything we needed with every detail considered. We were there over Easter and loved the special touch of Easter treats and a card left for us after our chalet was cleaned on Easter morning. We were in one of the middle chalets and it was perfect for us with two young kids - no stairs and a 30 second walk to the beach. The beach is heaven for kids with shallow water during the day and kayaks and SUPs to play on. Clear, clean water to swim in and a lovely spot to relax on loungers away from the sand. The location is ideal to walk to East Head Cafe' for breakfast and lunch or across the lagoon when the tide is out for a visit to Leisure Isle. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

Milkwood chalet is a beautiful place, directly on the beach, with private area brai. Lovely place, service efficient, and you can use canoe and paddle included in you stay. My kids loved it. Will definitely recommend the stay.
