About Sea Cottages

If you really want to be on the beach, then you’ve come to the right place! These exquisitely designed and decorated cottages are set in an oasis of lush tropical gardens and gentle winding pathways with the Indian ocean of the bottom of the lawn.

Sea Cottages are undoubtedly the closest to the sea to be found on the Dolphin Coast. A true beach lover's paradise, it is ideal for a romantic getaway, or the perfect (child friendly) family holiday. Relax on the deck chairs and watch the children frolic safely on the beach or keep an eye out for our other regular visitors - the bottle nose dolphin and hump back whale. Have the best of both worlds: quiet secluded cottages (and beaches), but with all amenities such as restaurants, bank atm, shops and pubs within walking distance.
