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.
Our beach offers guests safe swimming and water sports in the protected bay. Kayaks, paddle boards and beach equipment are provided for the enjoyment of the whole family and buckets and spades are available for small children. There are also board games and DVDs at reception for rainy days and quiet times. Babysitting, a laundry service and a grocery provisioning option can be arranged.
