This KwaZulu Natal South Coast self-catering, beachfront cottage is an oasis for the city weary. Our front garden gate opens onto a narrow strip of indigenous vegetation (admiralty) which is all that separates you from a beautiful unspoiled   golden beach with an enormous tidal pool.  Just 500 metres to your right is Southport’s famous Blue Flag  beach complete with life guards another lovely tidal pool and under the magnificent Milkwood trees is a laid back beach restaurant and bar.

Besides being very popular for fishing, Southport is also conveniently situated in close proximity to many delightful restaurants, golf courses and shopping facilities.

Newly renovated Crab Shack can accommodate 10 people.   It offers 3 bedrooms plus a flatlet.  Two of the bedrooms have queen beds, the 3rd  bedroom has 2 adult sized double bunk beds and the flatlet also has a queen bed.

The main bedroom and flatlet are both en-suite.  There is also a family bathroom which is shared by the other 2 bedrooms. There are no baths.
