Howzit I am the owner of the House on the Beach for more than ten years now. I know this coast and most of the best beach houses. I can assure you we are the best value offering given our closeness to the ocean and the rate/person we charge. We can accommodate up to 12-14 people.
Getaway Magazine voted House on the Beach as one of the “top ten affordable and cool” beach houses in South Africa. After a “cruisey” 35 minute drive from Durban you arrive at House on the Beach at Widenham/Umkomaas. And it is quite simply that fortunately it sits high enough on the point for one to escape the moist sea air and enjoy the vista that this exceptionally located property has to offer. The most alluring point to the property is its outdoor entertainment area. Shielded from the elements you can still lie on the Daybed and gaze all the way back to Umhlanga(some 80 kms away) with all the interlocking bays and points rolling out as far as the eye can see. It is right on the beach, approximately 59 steps need to be taken to the high tide mark. While you are braaiing you can watch the family swim in the bay or play in the wonderful rock pools below.
The House on the Beach has a distinct Cape Cod feel when you enter. The wooden ceilings and floors have been white washed, the kitchen is all cream and white. There is a ball and claw stand alone bath for the ladies to relax in after a tough day on the beach. The main house consists of 3 queen sized bed rooms and 2 bath rooms. There are 2 outside en-suite bedrooms. One with a King extra length with aircon and another with 2 singles. Most of the rooms have aircons and security consists of electric fence, armed response and trellidoors.
*Suitable for small weddings as well.
