Frequently Asked Questions – Plett Forest Cabins

How far are you from the beach?

We are 12kms from Central/Beacon Island Beach.

20 minutes from Plett Central and 20 minutes from Knysna Central


I was there 8 years ago and the road was very bad?

The Airport Road in front of Plett Forest Cabins was tarred in 2016.

Unfortunately with progress comes a loss. Sanral expropriated 2m across the entire front of the property when they built the road, with the result, we lost over 200 full grown trees on our property and the avenue of trees on either side of the road, running parallel to our property were also removed to build the road.

We have planted in excess of 500 trees to replace those lost; these will take time to grow when once again the property will be completely surrounded by a forest.

Do I need to bring bedding?

We supply all bedding. In addition, in Winter we supply microwave heated bags as well as plush warm blankets.

Do I need to bring towels?

We supply bath towels, if you have booked a long stay, we give you fresh towels after every 3 nights stay.

Please bring your own swimming towels

Is there a deep freeze in the cabin?

Each cabin has a 150litre fridge freezer. If the freezer compartment is too small for your needs, you are welcome to ask us to store your extra items.

Do the cabins have baths or showers?

5 of the 6 cabins have Jacuzzi spa baths in the bathroom with hand held shower attachments. The large family cabin which is a 2 bed roomed cabin, has two en-suite bathrooms with showers and no baths.

Are you Pet friendly?

We unfortunately cannot accommodate pets.

Where do I park my car?

Safe secure parking is in the car park at the entrance to the property.

How far is the car park from my cabin?

Depending on which cabin you have booked, cabins are approximately 30 to 175 meters from the car park.

Why can’t I park at my cabin?

There are 2 reasons:

1st: the property is surrounded by clay, it took us 3 days before we could get the last truck out of holes it had sank into, we do not want to take a chance with your car.

Stuck in the mud
