5 Reasons Our Guests Love Us

We are proud to announce that we have just been awarded our 2017 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor! This is the fourth year in a row that Under Milkwood has received this certificate, so we would like to thank you, our guests, for sharing your wonderful experiences on social media. Without your great reviews, this award would not be possible.

In celebration of this accolade, here are five things that guests at Under Milkwood enjoy and mention in their reviews the most…

#1 – Le Creuset

All our chalets are stocked with a full collection of Le Creuset cookware, including mugs and coffee plungers. Our guests find this luxury kitchenware to be a real treat!

#2 – Right on the Beach

Under Milkwood offers direct access to the beach. Guests are welcome to paddle a complimentary kayak or SUP board or enjoy a casual stroll across the wide stretch of beach during low tide. The beach and lagoon are safe for kids and there are endless opportunities for water sports. There are no crashing dumpers and plenty of shallow water for little people to splash around in. The location on the beach is hard to beat and many of our guests feel that there is little reason to leave each day.

#3 – Breathtaking Views

Uninterrupted views over the ever-changing lagoon and the Outeniqua Mountains in the distance add to our location’s natural beauty. Guests in the waterfront- and hillside chalets can drink in the beautiful views from their deck. All guests, however, have access to the beach, from where breathtaking sunsets can be enjoyed.

#4 – Knysna Heads

We are situated a five-minute walk from the world famous Knysna Heads, the two impressive sandstone peaks standing on either side of the Knysna river mouth. The site is also Knysna’s most visited attraction. A lookout has been erected on the Eastern Head, providing spectacular views of the lagoon, Leisure Isle and Knysna. Overlooking the ocean and the Heads, East Head Café offers relaxing breakfast and lunch.

#5 – Amazing staff

Milkwood Collection staff 2017

It always makes us happy to read the good things guests say about our staff. It’s a pleasure to read about how friendly our staff and service are and that our chalets are so clean and comfortable. Some guests have said that they’ve never felt this comfortable and relaxed while on holiday. Guests are made to feel at home from the minute they arrive. James and Donne at reception have been called many things, including welcoming, friendly, professional and helpful. One review read “…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.”

These are the reasons we love to be here and to be of service to our guests. Our main priority is to ensure that your stay is a pleasant one. Thank you for your reviews and for choosing Under Milkwood. We’re happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and if you haven’t been yet, we hope that we can welcome you as our guest very soon.
