Footsteps from the ocean's edge

Melkboom is a self-catering family holiday home on the shoreline of Franskraal within 10 meters from the high water mark.

There are five bedrooms with 3 bathrooms (one en-suite) in the main house and a granny flat under the milkwood forest in the backyard. The back garden is totally covered by protected Milkwood trees (Sideroxylon inerme) which give a forest atmosphere to the outside braai area. The open plan living room leads to a huge outdoor patio with a sea view.

This living room is the meeting place of smells and sounds of sea and forest, creating a unique space of belonging and connection. The kitchen is fully equipped with all major appliances.

Linen and towels are provided. A television is provided but bring own DSTV decoder or rent a DSTV package from us during your stay.

Melkboom can accommodate up to 12 friends or family members for a holiday, reunion or festival.
