- Very clean log cabins
- Self Catering
- Gentle lagoon beach
- Beautiful lagoon views
Very comfortable self-catering chalets set in a peaceful location on Knysna Lagoon - perfect for families with younger children (toddlers) who want some time by a gentle beach.
Each chalet has two bedrooms, a twin and a double room; a fully equipped kitchen with all the modern conveniences such as microwave, fridge/freezer, stove, TV and Le Creuset cookware. Each chalet has its own sundeck and BBQ facilities, and is serviced daily. The chalets are spotless, and the fact that the owners have gone to the expense of fitting them all out with extensive (and very expensive) Le Creuset cookware, gives an indication of the attention to detail.
The resort has a lovely view into Ksyna Lagoon with the Outeniqua Mountains in the background. There are three tiers of chalet, all identical inside, but priced according to views, the front row are the waterfront (most expensive, but recommended), the Hillside Chalets have views, but are set back from the water and the Middle Chalets are set between without views (the cheapest, but least favoured option. Best avoided from 16 December to 10 January, when rates more than double with the peak domestic tourist season, the Chalets offer great value the rest of the year.
For Families: Set just within Knysna lagoon from the Heads, the resort has good water frontage with plenty of sun loungers and a very peaceful and clean tidal gently sloping sandy beach. It is for this reason that we think it is a perfect base for families with young children. Families can enjoy swimming, canoeing and windsurfing or relax on the sundeck and barbeque. Beach equipment is provided for games for the enjoyment of the whole family as well as buckets and spades for the smaller members. Board games and the library of DVD’s are available for the quieter moments. Baby-sitting services are available.

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
