Nice chalets, three minutes walk from the two heads cafe and a few minutes drive from the city. The chalet was very well organized, clean, well equipped and had a nice patio with a view to the lagoon (and a personal grill). It was actually almost to big and equipped for us and could easily host a small family :...

Under milk wood is a beautifully located on the water. Lovely wooden cabins that are extremely welcoming. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Definitely recommend it. Just a stones throw from the knysna heads which is a must see!

I stayed at the Under the milk wood chalets - wood cabin houses- for 2 nights this September. It's the holidays in south Africa so a lot of local tourists but I didn't feel the crowd. The chalets are right at the beach with breath-taking views. I didn't get a chalet with a great view- but I just needed to...

Spent 3 nights in a waterside chalet. The chalets are quite large and well equipped especially the kitchen area. We used to bbq once which was then cleaned for us the next morning. Check in/out was quick and efficient and reception were very helpful. The view across the lagoon was beautiful. Unfortunately we did not have good weather so couldn't...

We arrived here late at night because of problems with our flight, and so the view from our waterside chalet the next morning were an incredibly lovely surprise. The chalets are rustic and lovely. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds very comfy. We had a little deck overlooking the water which was a lovely place to sit.

A place where I will be able to stay for months and still feel at home. Clean, fully equipped with quality cookware, very cumfy bed and clean. A personal touch to have the lights left on as we were arriving late. All arrangements were made and communicated for the keys. A 5-start service for a 5 star stay. Thank you

Family of four staying in the bottom chalet, right on the waterfront. Able to walk down the steps from the terrace onto the beach. Great to have free use of the kayaks. The chalet was extremely comfortable and even though it was quite cold, the chalet was nice and cosy. Parking could have been a little tricky but fortunately it...

We spent a couple of days at Under Milkwood as part of our winter holiday - we picked them based on their Tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. We had a beautiful view of the lagoon, the chalets are well kitted out(although some braai tongs would have been great), the rooms are really comfortable and the beds are great. The...

We always enjoy being at Undermilkwood. The staff are fantastic as are the chalets.The setting at Knysna Heads is beautiful. No complaints at all. Wiffi would be a huge advantage especially to those people who needed to work as well as relax. Thank you to you all of you that make our family holidays so special. .
