If you're looking for somewhere that is both relaxing and full of entertainment and activities then Mosaic Farm is the place to stay. I heard about it from a friend and thought I would give it a try. First off the service was excellent. Everyone there is very kind and helpful, they are more than willing to go out of their way for anything you need. Graeme was the guide for most of the activities and he made sure I had the best experience I could, cheers to him. The lagoon lodge is tucked in some trees and has a beautiful view of the lagoon and the mountains in the background. The rooms were very clean and spacious and I especially liked how the shower was set outside the room (with cover of course) so you could see all the amazing scenery. There are plenty of activities to do as well. I took a quad bike tour in the morning that takes you all around the farm with amazing views and in the evening we took a ride to their beautiful beach (which had some great dunes and the whitest sand I've seen) where we had appetizers and drinks. I would just like to add that we rode a unimog to the beach and if you don't know what that is I'll just say it's one of the COOLEST things I've ever ridden on. You can also rent kayaks and go around the lagoon or take the more relaxing route and take a sunset cruise on the pontoon with food and drinks. If you are a wine connoisseur then you will be more than pleased with the wines Mosaic offers or you can always go to a wine tasting at one of the many vineyards in the area. The cook there is fabulous and the food is very fresh (their vegetables are grown right on the farm), I was never disappointed with a meal. There are a few towns in the area with the closest being Stanford which was only a 10-15 minute drive. It is a very small but cultural town with a grocery store and a few restaurants. Hermanus is the big town you pass through before you get to Mosaic and is only a 30-40 minute drive. There are plenty of places to go there and the night life is fantastic. Gansbaai is the town past Mosaic and there is one main reason I went there: great white shark cage diving. It was one of the best experiences of my life and words can't describe the feelings you have when you're in the cage and maybe a foot away from a great white. I can't thank my friend enough for suggesting Mosaic Farm to me, it was truly the best trip I've ever been on.
