Beautiful place, incredible staff. We were very comfortable and felt secure. The wifi was horrible. Didn't even work but other than that I would rate this 10/10. We were only there for 1 night so it's tough to know how well the housekeeping did but...More

Lovely quaint cabins with lots of character. Cabins were very well equipped and secure, and only a few steps away from the beach. There were fun activities like kayaking, stand up paddle-boarding, and snorkeling. Lovely adventurous walks close-by passing caves.

About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less
