Friendliest staff I have ever encountered. We ordered the picnic baskets for dinner ( braai basket) and breakfast and the food was amazing! We will definately be back. Thank you so much.

Beautiful surroundings! Very peaceful. The units are too close together. It was not private enough. We have 2 small kids and the property lacked something for them, at least a jungle gym or something. Would have been nice to make use of the pool at Lagoon Lodge seeing that it is also part of the Mosaic group. First night stay at Milkwood1. Highly overpriced. Was moved to Milkwood 2 on second night due to a burst water pipe and whole unit was under water. Was nice to move our things over, but no apology from a Manager or someone for the inconvenience. That Customer contact would have been nice....

The house is so well kept and stocked with everything one could possibly need in a self-catering place. The little things really made a difference, like the abundance of firewood for those chilly days and nights and the coffee plunger for people like us who love...

Had an amazing night in the Milkwood cottages with friends and family. Even though it was winter, cold and raining the cottage was inviting with its warm fire place and bean bags, lovely baths and luxurious big beds!
