The welcome by friendly receptionist, The location at the heads, The setting, under the Milkwood trees, The fully fitted kitchen with all the Le creuset equipment to test/use Cleanliness of cottage, The free use of kayak's to explore the waters of the Knysna lagoon, Within walking distance of one of the best cafes in Knysna, East Head Cafe and if you're fit a walk to the top of the heads with one of the most beautiful views
The fact that there is such a huge price difference between front cabins, middle cabins and upper cabins. I agree there should be a price difference but not as it is.
location Furniture Guard Service Calm Privacy The atmosphere of the sea
We liked everything about our stay. We stayed in Bottom Cottage and, as always, it was welcoming, clean and warm. The views over the lagoon are stunning. We love the idea of the chalets being built around (and in some instances onto) the beautiful old mildwood trees. The staff are friendly and helpfull, but also unobtrusive. We've been to Under Milkwood a number of times, and will keep going back.
Friendly, helpful staff, excellent accommodation and great views.
No air cons in chalet
Well equipped comfortable cabins. Helpful and efficient staff. Location perfect for a relaxing and refreshing stay
Relaxing, location, thought of everything needed.
Chalets are fantastic, really comfy beds, well equipped kitchen and the best location in Knysna - you have your own beach and canoe!
Outstanding location. Generally peaceful. Excellent, unobstrusive service.
Parking - but then do they allow cars in heaven?
The location is perfect - lagoon, bird life, quiet roads, accommodation spacious and comfortable.
The fact that I had to leave. :(
No A/C while it was too hot
Fabulous kitchen wear - made us want to cook!! Great challets, loved it
Be great to have a washing machine and dryer
The service was exceptional at all levels. Having the private, sandy beach and kayaking was priceless. The plants and birds and views of the Knysnsa lagoon made it such a wonderfully restful stay.
Not a thing!
It was very clean. And kitchen had all I required
Did not like the position of the braai.
Perfect location. Wonderful environment
This was our second visit. Superb location. Lovely comfortable cabin lodge. We were at top of site for great seaview and BBQ. Safe waters for fun - even our 17 year old enjoyed free kayaking. We will defo use again.
Incredibly clean, excellent quality furnishings, . Perfect.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is fantastic. The chalets are very beautiful and the facilities are great. We would definitely recommend Milkwood. We even made a mistake on our booking where we though we had booked for Nov when we had booked for Dec and they facilitated us. Great attitude to customers
excellent location, friendly staff, accommodation top class
