Blue Horizon is a private residence in Umzumbe on the Kwa-Zulu Natal South Coast. The cottage is situated on an acre of sea-facing property with an exotic view of the tranquil Indian Ocean - from beach to horizon.
The cottage has 3 enormous bedrooms which can accommodate 8 people comfortably. The main bedroom with en-suite bathroom is sea facing and has a separate patio. The second bedroom consists of a king size bed and double bunk beds. The third bedroom has a queen size bed. A large kitchen is well equipped. Spacious lounge, bar and dining areas are suitable for family gatherings and open-air relaxation. A huge shady patio, the focal point of the cottage, has a built-in braai/barbecue and is designed for soaking up the sun while being mesmerized by the vastness of the peaceful turquoise sea as it gently ebbs against the shore.
The majestic sloping garden is a display of indigenous trees and beautiful mown lawn for the kids to play or an after-dinner stroll, where one can discover an array of birdlife including exotics like the fascinating Green Pigeon and the Purple Crested Loerie. Double lock-up garages provide additional security.
Situated 150 metres from the waters-edge on a gradually sloping walkway, the beach directly in front of the cottage is rather private with natural swimming rock pools and outcrops for angling. For youngsters, or those wanting slightly more action, the main life-guarded beach is an amazing 600 metre adventure along an unspoilt fine-sand beach where small shells and thriving rock pools can be explored while having your feet gently massaged by waves as they caress the almost-white beaches.
There are numerous restaurants in the vicinity and range from the inexpensive to gourmet style. The Oribi Gorge, Umtamvuna and Vernon Crookes Nature Reserves, and two nearby crocodile farms are wonderful day trips. The South Coast offers some of the best rock, surf and deep sea fishing spots in S.A. From right in front of the cottage to at least 20 other prime locations the fishing is supreme, with deep sea boats going out almost daily. Golfers can tackle some world-class courses like the Wild Coast Sun, Selbourne, San Lameer and Durban Country Club. Many other challenging courses will make your stay memorable – Scottburgh, Port Shepstone, Umkomaas, Umdoni and Southbroom. Depending on your activity level (or that of your kids) there are hectically busy beaches 20 minutes away or more serene coves and lazy walks right on your door step.
A drive along the coast road through indigenous forests is made more pleasurable as you meander through small, friendly villages dotted along the road offering ocean view coffee shops, produce markets, antique shops, boutiques and a variety of small craft markets. For the serious shopper large shopping malls are 20 minutes way by car. For the daring, The Wild Coast Sun and Durban casinos are less than an hour away.
There is a colour TV with a DStv decoder. The house is a non-smoking area but the 3 patios provide ample area for those so inclined.
To ensure carefree relaxation, cleaning staff can be arranged for the duration of your stay to wash dishes, clean house or do the laundry.
