Verified reviewvery good

Lovely stay. There were a few pointers we would have liked to be better. 1. Guest soap in one of the bathrooms. On arrival we wanted to wash our hands and could not as we had not been shopping yet. 2. It would have been better if the bath towels could have been washed every second day. Coastal weather does not make towels last a week, and at R1 500 daily rate, would put the accommodation at "excellent'. Overall, the staff were friendly and the grounds immaculately kept.

What a lovely stay we had in this fresh open plan apartment! It was well situated, an easy walk to the beach with the kids and to a variety of restaurants and central Umhlanga shops. We had a warm welcome from Greg on arrival and the apartment was serviced daily. Thanks so much - keep up the good work and we will without a doubt be back!
