Mosaic Private Sanctuary Lagoon Lodge
Why we like it
- Located just outside of the quaint village of Stanford
- A picturesque private sanctuary with the backdrop of the Overberg Mountains
- Superb South African food and award winning local wines
- Relax in tranquil surroundings
- A haven for birdwatchers
- The Lagoon Lodge has five suites all feature fireplaces, outdoor showers and private decks with commanding views
- Owner run and managed this is a very special place and one that requires more than a one night stopover
Indulge in fabulous picnic baskets at the 1892 Spookhuis Country Cafe under the ancient milkwood trees on the edge of the lagoon.
Joanne Swinton's detailed knowledge of South Africa has been invaluable and her enthusiasm to respond to our needs is greatly appreciated.
