The Milkwood Collection offers a variety of self-catering accommodation to suit everyone’s taste. Our waterfront villas, Milkwood Bay and Number Eleven, offer five-star luxury with private swimming pools. For more affordable options, choose between Paquita - a villa perfectly situated on the water's edge - or one of Under Milkwood's 16 cosy timber chalets. Our properties are a short amble away from the famous Knysna Heads - the two impressive sandstone peaks guarding the Knysna Lagoon entrance which opens in to the Indian Ocean. The Milkwood Collection is one of the few establishments in the area with direct access to the beach. The lagoon's calm and shallow shores allow safe swimming for kids and endless opportunities for water sports. The only challenge every morning is to decide between paddling a complimentary kayak or SUP board, or enjoying a casual stroll across the wide stretch of beach during low tide. Uninterrupted views over the ever-changing lagoon towards the Featherbed Nature Reserve and the Outeniqua Mountains in the distance, add to the natural beauty. Knysna's temperate climate and the combination of forest, lagoon and nearby ocean make it an ideal year-round destination.
