About Umzumbe Beach House
Umzumbe Beach House is a beautiful four-bedroom (10 sleeper) beachfront house, situated right on the edge of a stunning sandy beach in Umzumbe. The cosy little hamlet of Umzumbe lies between the Umzumbe and Ingambili Rivers, just 5 km south of Hibberdene and 100 km from Durban.
The house is ideal for anyone looking for sun, surf and sand. Enjoy a braai on the deck while listening to the waves crashing less than 60 meters away.

Relaxed subtropical seaside living plus thrilling, adrenalin-fuelled adventures to boot! With the beach only a stones throw away you can make the most of swimming, fishing or just relaxing and catching a suntan. Anglers can stand knee-deep in the shore-break for hours on end, casting lines after some of the most varied and abundant scaled trophies to be hooked anywhere.
The village itself is almost blanketed in a wild dune forest, offering a slice of paradise that is part of the coast. Life here is languid, relaxed and typical of the Hibiscus Coast; one comes here to slow down and enjoy the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
For scuba divers, a world-class site presents a series of reefs to test the mettle and endurance of even the most experienced underwater fanatic. A short distance inland you can find white-water rafting, rock-climbing, mountain biking and one of the world's highest abseil and cable-slide locations.
Golfers can enjoy two of South Africa's top ten golf courses among the Hibiscus Coast's choice of seven - all presenting varied levels of difficulty, but similar in terms of beautiful locations and breathtaking outlooks.
