Penguins use to nest in the garden near the barbecue until caracals (local lynx) feasted.on them.
Before the caracals,  penguins on the rocks below The Milestone were a common sight.
Hopefully penguins will return to The Milestone as 2 caracals were caught & relocated to Hout Bay.
Dassies (Hyrax) were all over the garden & rocks  below The Milestone before the caracal visits.
Photo taken of Dassie on log at northern edge of the garden before the caracals came. .

“Perfect Cottage by the Sea”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

What a wonderful endpoint to our month-long African trip! The Milestone is as idyllic as you can imagine, and Alicia is the most accomodating hostess. Her attention to detail and immaculate cottage was exactly what we needed at the end of our trip. Having washer and clothesline was wonderful, the kitchen was great. . everything was wonderful. Our group of 6 couples travelling together only wished we had more days to stay and truly enjoy the serenity of the Milestone!

“Idyllic holiday spot near Simon's Town”
Reviewed April 29, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

This was our third stay at the Milestone and every time we return we just love it more. Alida is the perfect host and goes out of her way to make us welcome and looked after. The Milestone is perfect for a family holiday and the location is absolutely ideal, with a super, safe beach just a short walk away.
