An amazing house, spectacular location and it suited our needs perfectly! Thanks to Denise, Elizabeth and Sibusiso for looking after us so well. We hope to visit again one day.

We had the most enjoyable week at Nomax House. The beach was right in front of us and we didn't have to go anywhere by car. The house was very comfortable for our three families and we felt at home right away. Lovely fresh white linen and comfortable beds. The property is very secure, well maintained with beautiful gardens. Elizabeth, the housekeeper, looked after us so well and made it a home away from home. She even took on babysitting our kids one evening so we could have an adult dinner out! Thank you so much for a wonderful break. We really do hope we will return one day.

Beautiful house in a magnificent location. The house has everything you could possibly need. Easy beach access, fenced pool, massive maintained garden and daily cleaning made this the perfect stay for us with our small children. I can't wait to go and visit again

Beautiful place right on the beach. Stunning views from bedrooms. Fully equipped with absolutely everything you need. Perfect swimming beach and tidal jool just below. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend.

We had an amazing time at the Nomax Beach House. The ocean views are exceptional. The house catered to all our needs, including that of our young sons and my parents. The house was clean and well serviced daily. We spent a very happy four days at the beach house. We hope to have another opportunity to return.

Stunning location, unforgettable scenic views, felt like we were at a private resort. Very peaceful. Property and garden is well kept. Extremely tidy and clean, which is what I look for and appreciate most.

Great place with fantastic staff and Host.
