              Beautiful spot. On the quiet side of Umdloti. Lovely rooms. Just what you need. Hostess was very friendly. Dogs loved it.

              The view is sublime and the space so expansive. Ride services such as Uber & Bolt are fairly priced in the area, plus it's conveniently situated. Beaches better than Durban.

              Loved the close proximity to the beach, I could see and hear the beach from my balcony, I stay for one to enable me to be closer to the airport for my early morning flight, next time I would book at least for two nights to fully enjoy the beauty of the area. The host was wonderful, welcoming, friendly and the communication prior to check in was much appreciated.
