Recently refurbished,Umzumbe, a mere one hour from central Durban.

Being one road back from the shore, Beach Rose Cottage offers breathtaking views and slight elevation, while the beach remains an easy 2 minute walk where rocky pools beckon youngsters, famous angling attracts fishermen and a protected gulley provides perfectly safe swimming for children. Across the river lies a vast expanse of unspoilt beach, ideal for long walks and swimming for the more adventurous. The lifestyle offered epitomizes that of the quintessential beach house of yesteryear - luxurious beds, percale linen and cutting edge decor will assure the comfort of the most exacting guests while domestic services are discretely taken care of by the house help, Gloria.

The cottage ideally accommodates 2 families. Meals are enjoyed either alfresco on the deck next to the pool or in the dining room, which provides the perfect setting for long, languid meals. Keep an eye open for whales breaching in the sea below.

Prime golf, swimming, angling, shopping and surfing opportunities abound in the near proximity not to mention a variety of well known excellent restaurants and a casino, all within easy driving distance. The possibility of serious relaxation always beckon while the inviting sofa and multitude of imported magazines provide the perfect answer to inclement weather. The Shaker style kitchen has been refurbished with a dark mahogany counter and is comprehensively equipped to make cooking a pleasure whilst a Weber braai is also available for guests to use.

Whatever your preference, Beach Rose Cottage provides the ideal platform for a wonderful holiday experience.
