About Mosaic Farm, Hermanus

Mosaic Farm Private Sanctuary offers two different types of accommodation, the fully catered Lagoon Lodge and the self-catered cottages. Equally beautiful in their accommodation style, each has stunning views of the mountain and lagoons and a huge host of activities to enjoy during your time in Hermanus.

Located between Stanford and Hermanus, the location is ideal, uniquely positioned right next to the shores of Hermanus Lagoon and a short drive from Walker Bay. A place to relax pure in African simplicity, this is a beautiful place to stay, with 933 hectares of nature to explore.

Lodge Details


You can choose to go fully catered in the lodge or self catering in one of the cottages. Décor is unique to each room and cottage with a safari style.


In a prime position on the shores of the Hermanus Lagoon, near the whale watching paradise of Walker Bay and the majestic Overberg Mountains.

Accommodation & Facilities

Lagoon Lodge is the ultimate private getaway, with beautiful suites with stone and glass walls and open decks to welcome those breathtaking views. The bathtubs in each room are big enough for two and there is a private outdoor shower for a more African bush experience. Follow the boardwalk under the tree canopy to the lounge where you can enjoy food and drinks. There is also a heated plunge pool overlooking the mountains.

The 4 cottages are self catering and vary in size. Duminy Cottage, constructed from limestone and mosaic, is ideal for families with a huge living space, 2 large verandas and an upper deck with panoramic mountain and lagoon views. This cottage sleeps up to nine people at a time, with 2 bedrooms and a loft space with 5 twin beds – great for all the children to stay together. There are 3 Milkwood cottages, sleeping from 3 to eight guests at a time, each equally beautiful with outstanding attention to detail and wonderful natural touches.


Those staying in the cottages are self catered and come with cooking amenities. Those staying in the Lagoon Lodge will have the pleasure of full breakfast and a sumptuous 3 course dinner. At the 1892 Spookhuis Country Café you can enjoy fabulous picnic baskets under the ancient milkwood trees. There is a nice market here for all the self-catering guests.


Close to Walker Bay, you are in one of the best spots in the world for whale watching. You can also enjoy sunset cruises on the lagoon, beach excursions, quad biking, kayaking, guided nature walks and bird watching. Wine tasting is available and due to Mosaic’s central location, you can also take part in activities such as shark cage diving.
