Neat, spacious and secure studio apartment with a large verandah in the upmarket suburb of Umtentweni. Beautiful scenery with an abundance of birdlife. The beach is a mere 2km away which provides good fishing and pleasant walks; all the ingredients for a relaxed, enjoyable stay.

The space
This homely space is on the second floor of a free standing building that over looks a spectacular view of a sugar cane farm and endless rolling hills. Bird life is popular and you will be woken in the morning to the sweet chirp of a variety of birds. The apartment can accommodate up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 small children ( under 11 yrs). Children over 11 are classed teenagers and require a bigger sleeping area. Guests have full access to the entire apartment as well as their own gate entrance .
The space has everything you need for a comfortable stay including a fully equipped kitchen. We have also set up a full DSTV bouquet so you may curl up in the evenings and enjoy your favourite movies/TV series.
Umtentweni is situated on the East Coast of South Africa where we are blessed with warm temperatures all year round. A glass of wine on the balcony while the sun sets, after a day on the beach, is highly recommended!

Just before the town of Port Shepstone is the popular Country Club where you can enjoy a round of golf or have a nice lunch/dinner with the rest of the locals. Further south gets you to the malls, the famous waffle house and other must see beaches.

I am a friendly, homely person who lives in a small suburb south of Durban. Every now and then we travel here and there, usually with my husband and 2 older daughters.
