Great location with a nice view on the lagoon. Nice atmosphere, well furnished apartments with private terrasse for a BBQ. We also liked very much going for paddling and kayaking on the lagoon in the morning.

Peaceful, shady spot near the Knysna heads, with own private beach and water toys. Well equipped chalets and little reason to leave each day....just easier to chill out in the chalet, on the beach, and at the heads...

Amazing views, especially during sunset. The unit has everything you would need for a great stay. The staff goes above and beyond, and even add a personal touch with a card. Great privacy. We would recommend this!

Stayed here for 4 nights, during our time in South Africa this was my absolute favourite! I loved the beach and being able to go kayaking. We stayed in a middle chalet (so no view) but it was literally 2 seconds, down some steps, to the beach. The chalet was lovely, there were 3 adults but more than enough room...

Loved the chalets with big trees and stunning views. The beds were so comfortable and cleaned every day. The lagoon and private beach were a real treat, with kayaks and boards you can use for free, and the Kynsna heads just a short walk away. Will definitely be back, would just be nice to have an aircon, although the fans...

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
