“Under Milkwood Stay”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We were absolutely, completely and 100% happy with our stay. The chalet was perfect, the service was perfect. We were so close to the lagoon, the waterfront and a walk away from the Heads. Thank you!!

This was our second visit and it was again good quaility and value. Only a one night stop on route to cape town but enjoyed good service and facilities. Even my 17 year old lad enjoyed the free kayaking! Will defenitely use again.

We loved our stay here. Amazing place for the kiddies. Only concern was the cars allowed to drive in the narrow roads of the complex. Comfortable and well equipped. We will be back for sure. Lovely places to eat just up the road.

Fantastic value for money. The reception staff are very helpful in all areas. Chalets are clean, spacious and in a relaxed location. The view from the Hillside Chalets is beautiful. Laundry service is very reasonable.
Would recommend this accommodation to family and friends.

We stayed here for a 4 night break after being at Botlierskop private game reserve. We really enjoyed the place, the location is excellent, just a short walk to east head cafe. The hillside chalet had excellent views and felt brand new, kitted out with a fantastic kitchen, top end cutlery etc. I really loved braaing in the evening and looking at the lagoon. The kids loved using the canoes on the lagoon. The staff are friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back

We rented a hillside chalet and the views over the water are really lovely. It is a great way to enjoy a braai on the deck and see that lights of Knysna come on across the water.

The chalet was very well maintained and perfectly clean, with a lovely kitchen.

My only complaint is that you have to buy vouchers for the internet, and that the 30 free minutes is per chalet and not per device. The price of wifi is cheap but I think for this level of accommodation it should be included.

This trip was my Mom's gift for her 70th birthday, it couldn't have been a more perfect choice! She absolutely loved the setting, and says she will make sure she goes back for a longer stay - one of the loveliest places she's been to.
For my husband and I and our little 1 year old boy it was a peaceful place for us to genuinely relax and unwind. Cleanliness was 100%, location was super convenient yet away from the crowds. Amenities were top quality which added to our overall experience. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
