HOME HIGHLIGHTS
Sparkling clean3 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

Situated a 4-minute drive from the buzzing Umhlanga beach front and town-centre, this large home would be perfect for a big family or a group of friends on a holiday. A flowing pond through the garden, a sparkling pool and many outdoor entertainment areas with the Indian Ocean in the background ensures a fabulous and fun trip, especially for the kids.

Watch the many birds come to life as the sun sneaks up over the horizon, or sit around a fire with smores in the boma-pit as the sun goes down.

A home from home! We stayed for a week with guests from the UK and we all agreed that we would be back. The house had everything we needed and more. The pool, boma and all facilities were spot on. The dogs, cat and tortoise were no trouble and all and were a pleasure to have arou…

Thank you Wendy Let me say that it was an absolute pleasure having you and your group stay over at 60 Herrwood . What a great pity that your boys missed the family of Mongooses that arrived in the Garden today . It would have rounded things off so well for them. We hope that Rain Farm Fulfilled all your expectations and that the wedding went off well. We wish you well for the future and hope that you have many many years of blissful marriage Take care John & Alison

Lovely, spacious family home with fantastic view of the Indian Ocean. The pool, pond, swing and tortoise resident in the garden made it a pleasant place for children. Fairly well equipped kitchen made self-catering pleasant. The owner has a cat and dogs, who are removed - note…
