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...

We have stayed here 3 times before, and are always impressed. Great well equipped chalets, which are well cleaned. Fantastic location. Kids can play in the lagoon from morning until night! We will be back again!

When we arrived there we were greeted with fantastic hospitality by the check in staff. The wooden...

Its a truly amazing setting and we loved our stay as a family of 4 (toddler of 4 and baby girl of 14months). We stayed in Handcuff unit which was cosy and well serviced - awesome swimming for the kids in the lagoon specially at low tide. Only issue with units are lack of aircon and the tight parking bays...

We loved staying in our beautiful cottage overlooking the lagoon. The cottage is beautifully clean but what makes it special is the way the staff are so caring and thoughtful. Things are done with love and nothing is too much trouble. This made all the difference! We even received a lovely Christmas foody gift on Christmas morning. The beach is...

We love Under Milkwood! Excellent service, a perfect location in Knysna on the East Head and the accomodation is perfect: Clean and luxurious, spacious and the kitchens are incredibly well equipped for SC. Highly recommended for the discerning traveller who enjoys their own privacy and a touch of luxury.
