There are some homes that beckon you through their doors with an immediate warmth and generosity. You put down your bags, throw open the veranda doors, kick off your shoes, sink into the couch for the very first time and, quite marvelously, you cannot help but be overcome with the blissful realization that you are on holiday.
Milkwood House is mere minutes away from Plettenberg Bay’s Robberg beach, a pristine stretch of uninterrupted coastline. Despite its seaside location, waking up in one of Milkwood’s beds feels more like daybreak on a farm. The home offers its visitors unmatched privacy, the all-encompassing quiet is broken only by the early morning birdsong of the local guinea fowls, sunbirds and weavers.
The interior is effortlessly charming, styled unpretentiously with plush couches, antique chairs and chests of drawers, original art and a collection of beach home bits and bobs that each have their very own story to tell. The white walls and flooring, the stable doors and large shuttered windows all make for a light-filled, inviting, serene space. Milkwood is a house fit for a family, with its roomy living area, bunk bedded kid’s room, rolling lawns and close proximity to hours of beach frolicking. After a day languidly spent in the sun and the surf the veranda is the perfect spot for a lingering early dinner or a few glasses of wine enjoyed beneath the fading light.
Milkwood House is a home that generously provides its lucky visitors easy-going luxury and warm hospitality in a truly idyllic locale. Experience heavenly reprieve in this special home by the sea.
