Milkwood Manor

A luxurious seaside accommodation on the breathtaking Garden Route, Milkwood Manor on Sea also offers classic Georgian elegance, easy access to Plettenberg Bay’s popular town center, and an award-winning restaurant. “A world apart where nature reigns supreme” is a fitting self-description for this special ocean-side getaway easily accessible from both Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.

Welcomed into the double-story, Georgian-styled foyer, guests of Milkwood Manor relish the spacious ambiance and the terrace’s stunning views of the Indian Ocean, Keurbooms River Mouth, Keurbooms Lagoon, and breathtaking Tsitsikamma Mountains. The manor’s location on a peninsula extending into the river gives guests a front row seat to nature’s ever-changing canvas.

Of the eleven elegant rooms, two room on the ground floor boast king-sized bed, ocean and river views, sofa bed, private patio, and en-suite bathroom. Upstairs, three rooms have extra-large double bed, en-suite bathroom, private balcony, and ocean and lagoon views. The remaining rooms offer a comfortable stay, en-suite bedroom, and magnificent views.

Open for lunch and dinner, the ever-popular Lemon Grass Seaside Restaurant graces terraces near the water’s edge. Seafood, fresh fish, mouthwatering meat, and wild game all find a spot on the menu alongside the freshest of produce. Chefs prepare international and traditional favorites that are beloved by guests and locals alike, so a reservation is essential.

Milkwood Manor’s location on the Western Cape affords it the privilege of offering guests the best of South Africa: seaside restaurants, hillside vineyards, wildlife sanctuaries, incredible beaches, and numerous outdoor sporting experiences. Golfing, whalewatching, surfing, cycling, kayaking, bungee jumping, canoeing, horseback riding, skydiving, and more make the area a perfect holiday playground.

To visit wildlife in its natural habitat, take a trip to Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve, home to lion, endangered white rhino, giraffe, hippo, crocodile, buffalo, numerous antelope species, and over 100 bird species. Other popular wildlife experiences include Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, Knysna Elephant Park, Tenikwa Wild Cats, Ocean Blue Adventures, Lawnwood Reptile Park, Robberg Nature Reserve, Swim with Seals, Elephant Sanctuary, Radical Raptors, and many more.
