If you like the idea of a city break in Cape Town, but would like to combine it with a trip into nature, there is one very special property on the banks of the Hermanus Lagoon where you can relax, unwind, and experience the true beauty of the Cape’s Whale Coast – Mosaic Private Sanctuary.
Just a short hop from Cape Town (approx. 1 hour and 20 minutes drive), Mosaic Private Sanctuary may be a secluded haven, but it is easily accessible from the city and perfect for those who looking for a couple of nights away to indulge in good food, fine wines, and fun outdoor adventures.
We stayed in one of the beautiful safari-style chalets nestling between ancient milkwood trees and leading straight down to the Hermanus Lagoon. Charming and rustic is design, these beautiful chalets are equipped with sumptuous four-poster beds and bathtubs for two, yet they have the added twist of outdoor showers and a decked outside area where you can enjoy a chilled Sauvignon Blanc as the sun goes down.
Fully inclusive, the chalets at Lagoon Lodge come with all meals and a long list of water and land activities so you can do as much or as little as you like. Quad Biking on Walker Bay Beach is not to be missed – so make an extra effort to drag yourself away from the luxury of your chalet (or the pool overlooking the lagoon) and take part in some four-wheeled action!
If you like the idea of self-catering, there are several Milkwood cottages on the Mosaic property where you can relax and Braai (BBQ) some fine South Africa fare, before popping over to the 1892 Spookhuis for one of their delicious homemade cakes.
The possibilities are endless at Mosaic Private Sanctuary – yet everything is pieced together perfectly to ensure you have a wonderful stay.
