Set right on the beachfront in a hectare of unspoiled coastal bush, one hour south of Durban, our comfortable cottage is a magical getaway for nature lovers & families. This simple, spacious cottage sleeps 12 adults & 2 children, and is a place for deep relaxation. The peaceful village of Umzumbe is one of the jewels of the KwaZulu Natal Coast, and a prime surfing and angling spot, with quiet, clean beaches stretching north and south, accessed via our private gated path. Come and relax with us!

Boendet
This laid-back beachfront cottage is ideal for families with kids. The furnishings are washable and child-proof, the floors are designed for sandy feet, and all the bedrooms have comfortable beds and ceiling fans.

A large shady veranda faces the sea and bush, equipped with a 12-seater table, plus cushioned benches, a comfy day bed and a coffee table. Close to the veranda, under a milkwood tree, is a braai area with a big fire pit and camping chairs.

In the main cottage, there are 3 bedrooms (one with a double bed, and two with twin single beds).

A stylish new family bedroom (sleeping two adults in a queen-size bed and two children in a bunk bed) has recently been added to the cottage. Opening off this wing, with a separate door leading to secure courtyard, there’s another family bedroom with one double bed and two single beds.

The cottage has three bathrooms, one with a bath and walk-in shower, one (opening off the back courtyard) with a shower, and a new bathroom with a walk-in shower and loo. Two of the inside bedrooms have their own basins. There’s also a rustic hot outdoor shower, enclosed by a wooden fence.

The compact kitchen is well equipped with a stove/oven, double sink, microwave, kettle, coffee plunger, blender, toaster and fire extinguisher, plus all utensils, baking dishes, glassware & cutlery. In the adjacent scullery, there's a large fridge-freezer, a separate bar fridge, a dishwasher, a washing machine, an iron and an ironing board.

The spacious open-plan lounge has three comfortable day beds, perfect for napping and reading in peace, plus a huge wooden coffee table. The adjacent dining room seats six - ideal for card games with the kids!

Because Umzumbe is all about being unplugged, there is no TV or WiFi (though you'll have good cellphone reception). We've taken care to stock our bookshelves with great holiday reads, including award-winning fiction, thrillers, classics, reference books and magical books for kids, tweens and young adults. If you're a nature lover, have a look at the glass-fronted case in the dining room for books about the ocean, bush and birds. You'll also find board games and cards in the big dresser in the living room. Outdoor equipment includes hammocks, body boards, umbrellas and sports gear.

Housekeeper Miriam Radebe is available in the mornings to wash dishes, clean up, make beds, and do personal laundry, at an additional cost - please enquire when you book.

There are no shops in Umzumbe, but at Hibberdene, 5 km north, there's a Spar, a small Pick n Pay, liquor store, garages, pharmacy and ATMs.

The property has very good security, with an electric gate, burglar bars, beams, and an alarm linked to a local security company. A large water reserve tank and pump ensure a constant supply of fresh water.

And there is always plenty to do and see in Umzumbe. If you'd like to learn how to surf, enquire about lessons right next door, at our cousins' property Umzumbe Surf Camp.

A little further afield, about 20 km inland from Port Shepstone, there’s the spectacular Oribi Gorge. For day trips, we recommend the superb Lake Eland Game Reserve, which offers game drives, zip-lining and a suspension bridge.

Golfers can tee off at three different coastal courses not too far from Umzumbe: the Port Shepstone Country Club, Umdonipark Golf Course in Pennington, and Southbroom Golf Course.

Umzumbe has two bush-fringed bays, long scallops of clean sand with swimming gullies and intriguing rock pools for kids. Shark nets protect the main beach, awarded international Blue Flag status, which is a magnet for surfers and body-boarders, watched over by in-season lifeguards.

Umzumbe is a nature-lover’s paradise. Dolphins are often seen playing in the big breakers and, in the spring months, whales can be spotted as they swim into the bay. In the small cove below, we sometimes see the hunting turtles coming up for air. Bird life in the bush ranges from sunbirds and Natal robins to tinker barbets and purple-crested loeries. If you are lucky, you may spot elusive blue duikers (mpiti) grazing in the glade. On shore, you might see black oyster catchers, pied kingfishers and woolly-necked storks.
