Milkwood Bay - a luxurious guesthouse in Knysna

Milkwood Bay is a luxury Guest house near the Eastern Knysna Heads, which is part of the Milkwood Collection. We were invited to view the house while we were staying at Under Milkwood, which is next door. It is a very beautiful house, luxurious, very well decorated in classic modern sea and beach colours and comfortably and tastefully furnished. It is full of original art and has magnificent views of the Knysna lagoon. Each of the 5 rooms has been individually decorated and offers under-floor heating, television with satellite channels and a telephone. The guest house has a covered swimming pool and sauna. An English breakfast is served on the balcony overlooking the lagoon or in the dining room area.  It is possible to hire the whole house. We think it would be perfect for wedding parties or special family occasions. Definitely somewhere to aspire to...

A different view of the largest bedroom
This bedroom is down on the pool deck, so ideally placed for late night dips
The pool is covered but open to the elements
It also has access to the beach and the lagoon
and has the sauna next to it
A view we could enjoy all day, and even all week. Knysna never disappoints with its beautiful countryside and lagoon views
