About Oyster Cottages

Oyster Cottages consists of two independent self-catering cottages, sharing a single corner property, nestled in one of Umhlanga’s oldest suburbs and yet perfectly situated - 5 minutes drive to beaches, restaurants and shopping centres.

Once the farmhouse of an early Umhlanga fruit farm, the 6-sleeper main cottage ‘Oyster Lodge' has been elegantly renovated, whilst the spacious 2-sleeper ‘Pearl Cottage’, was built from new. Indigenous fever (Acacia) trees line the road verge and guests are welcomed to a well manicured garden with partial sea views.

Accommodation

OYSTER LODGE
Characterised by a deep wrap around veranda with designer appointed bedrooms and living areas. It also boasts a fully equipped and functional kitchen - including dishwasher - for those with a flair for entertaining (albeit on holiday!). Barbeque/Braai equipment is also provided.

The queen bedded main bedroom is en-suite, with a full bathroom (toilet, basin, shower and bath). The 2 other bedrooms have 2 single beds each and share a spacious bathroom (toilet, basin & shower). All bedrooms are air-conditioned.

The lounge and dining areas are inviting, comfortable and tastefully appointed. They are linked to the veranda via wide timber folding doors allowing cool breezes to filter through whilst connecting the interior of the cottage to the garden and sea views - perfect for al fresco dining.
A widescreen television connected to a satellite decoder and DVD player is provided.

PEARL COTTAGE
A one bedroom cottage, with a queen size double bed. It is both comfortable and spacious and includes all the facilities and attention to décor of Oyster Lodge. A sleeper couch and additional linen for younger children is also available.

Attractions and Activities

Gateway Entertainment and Shopping Centre (2nd largest in the World and biggest in the Southern Hemisphere), with shops, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, IMAX, climbing wall, skate park, wave pool, putt-putt, squash, aerobics and much more, just 5 minutes away.

Game park safaris are within driving distance with the chance of spotting Africa's Big Five. There are numerous sporting facilities available in the area: golf at one of the world's top 100 golf courses at the Durban Country Club, take a boat trip to see the dolphins catching the waves, maybe catch a view of the Hump Back Whale, deep sea diving off the infamous Aliwal Shoal to view the numerous fish or book a deep sea fishing trip.

Notes

The cottages are serviced daily from Mondays to Fridays with week-end servicing and babysitting arranged at an additional cost. Cottages are fully equipped with laundry facilities.

Verified reviewexcellent

No. 8 Oyster Cottage was an exceptional place to stay over the holidays. The living area is open and airy. We loved the private swimming pool and large yard and outdoor entertainment area. All four bedrooms are wonderfully decorated. The location is excellent. The domestic assistant kept the place fresh and tidy for the duration of our stay, she came in daily and did everything, including our washing and ironing.. I will definitely visit again. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Verified reviewvery good

This was our first time staying at 8 Oyster Crescent and we definitely recommend the place. A home away from home......what more we say. The house is comfortable and very spacious. The pool, entertainment and child play area is nice and private. Our needs of a baby cot and high chair were met....thank you. Marie, housekeeper, is very pleasant and a hard worker. Maria, your attention to detail and hard work was much appreciated.
