Unfortunately, we had only one night in Milkwood. We would have loved to avail of the canoes that Kees (the host) offered us to paddle around the creek, and there lovely walks in the area. Hopefully, another time!
We had a good-sized room and comfortable bed, with great sea views. I don" t know why they spoil the view with the bars on the windows?
We had lovely dinner and wine in their Lemongrass restaurant that evening. However, the highlight for us was the breakfast - eaten out on the sunny patio, with the waves crashing on the adjacent beach. Idyllic, we really enjoyed our stay here.
Finally, when we were leaving, we found that all the guests cars had been washed and polished. Brilliant. Our car was filthy, as we had been in Addo Elephant Park the previous day, and I really appreciated haing it cleaned for me.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Location: The most enviable location on the Garden Route. At the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, jutting into the ocean - any closer and you would be in it! - as well as the estuary of a large lagoon- no neighbours but nature! Exquisite, unimpeded 180 views (360 from the roof deck) of the vast blue ocean, golden beaches, large lagoon and the imposing Tsitsikamma Mountain Range. Nature all'round, yet not isolated, but only a 2-minute drive from the town centre and its trendy shops.A pristine beach: accessible from the sheltered cove adjacent to the Manor - ideal for swimming in natural water – you may boat across to an unspoiled and usually deserted beach, far from built-up areas, traffic, crowds and noise. Blissful solitude and a complete immersion in nature, with only the sound of white-crested surf tumbling at one’s feet and the calls of a medley of seabirds – a veritable bird sanctuary. Becalming and rejuvenating - the perfect antidote for stress,. With luck you may even find the mysterious and sought-after pansy shell (sand dollar).The Manor: built in classic Georgian style, with an airy double-volume foyer and eleven double bedrooms, most with private patio or balcony. All rooms are decorated in crisp white and en-suite to a shower cubicle with/without bath, and a queen bed or twin beds, TV-hospitality package, free uncapped Wi-Fi, tea/coffee making facilities, safe, fan, heater and hairdryer. The sash windows allow the fresh ocean air straight in. ... more less
