About De Novo Lodge

A secure lodge in Port Edward on the famous Natal South Coast, situated on the renowned Old Pont Road leading to the Umtamvuna River. De Novo Lodge is located in idyllic subtropical surroundings with lush vegetation. This gives the lodge a unique, scenic and untouched nature.

A wide variety of bird life is found here and this makes the area a bird lover's paradise. The park-like gardens gives a restful and serene atmosphere. There is a fresh water swimming pool on the grounds and lots of room for the kids to play. Colourful flowers and cycads are just some of the flora on the grounds. The grounds are neat and paved around the units and 24-hour security patrols as well as a sophisticated alarm system take the worry away.

The braai facilities, washing line and laundry facilities are available to all guests. We have four self-catering units that sleep a maximum of four persons per unit, and a unit for overnight guests.

Our self-catering units are fully equipped with all the modern conveniences needed to make your holiday as carefree as possible.

Covid Safety Approved: Our units are regularly steam cleaned and sanitizers are in place for guests' use.

Mark & Sarah were very welcoming. They attended to ourrequests promptly & efficiently.Some of the ffg needs improvement:Our unit had no microwave.The double bed needs attention , came home with a sore back.Wasn't told about 30 sec timer on driveway gate as a result got my car paint work damaged. Parking was too far from our unit.No towels or mop in bathroom.

This place was the perfect choice for what we needed. We are a group of teachers that went away together. We were either marking or relaxing. It was so peaceful out there. The rooms were clean and cozy. Our hosts were friendly and accommodating. I would go back again and recommend it to others.

The girls and I had an absolutely epic time at De Novo Lodge. Our host Shane and his family (and dogs) were very friendly and accommodating. We had complete privacy and everything we need for a comfortable stay was available to us. The bird life surrounding us (especially the beautiful peacock) was quite a lovely sight. We will be back again soon :)
