Our stay was everything that we hoped it to be and more. The house is well equipped with everything that you may need. Our favorite part of the Mongoose was the upstairs deck, perfect for spending the whole day in the sun with quick access to the lagoon and the beach. The house also has a fire place for cold nights and an outside area where you can braai with your significant other/family. Service was also impeccable and the house manager Julie was also very helpful and kind. It is truly a great place to stay while in Pringle Bay and we will definitely want to go back.

Six adults, two small children, and one 15month old were easily and comfortably accommodated. Everything was supplied to make this a successful and happy 4 day break . Braai facilities were adequate and wood was supplied. Proximity and access to beach and river are excellent. Bruce Stewart ( Montagu )

Comfortable with all the essentials, fantastic, spacious outdoor braai area. An absolute bonus is the easy access to the estuary and beach to ensure sunrises and sunsets are not missed. Our Vizsla puppy had an absolute ball with us!

We stayed in Milkroom for 7 days and it was wonderful, free wood for braai, free kayaks for the lagoon. Could not have been better for our honeymoon. We would recommend people to stay here. Dont forget to chill on the deck.

Covid protocols not followed; ended up leaving a night early and management never even followed up as to why. The website very misleading as to what room you'll get - I can see if stay in one of the larger rooms that it could be worth it, but not for our room.
