This is truly a gem. The friendly staff makes you feel at home from the minute you arrive. The chalets are comfortable and clean, and to top it all, serviced every day. The kitchen is well equipped with all the Le Creuset accessories. We have never felt this comfortable and relaxed while on holiday. The kids were out on the...

Great spot in a very special place. Fantastic views from our unit (Bayview). Received a visit from a Knysna Loure! Shy little fellow. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We cant wait for the opportunity to visit again.

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 reviewed the facility looking and the website and were quite intrigued about its magnificent location on the lagoon. 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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
