“Home from home in Umhlanga Rocks”
Reviewed May 16, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

people found this review helpful

Lovely home just 5 minutes drive from Umhlanga lighthouse in a very desirable area. Well catered for with all amenities and a lovely maid, Lucy, who looked after us and did all of our washing after a weeks road trip from Joburg. 4 bedrooms with 2 x master suites and 2 x twin. We felt very secure with the house having good security including a visible mobile security presence patrolling the locality.
Shame we didn't get to use the pool as we had bad weather the whole time.

We stayed in this villa for the first week of our holiday. The villa is big and spacious, and beautifully decorated. The locations is very close to gateway mall and also very close to the beach front.
I would definitely stay again

What a place!! Truly remarkable! Excellent condition, beautiful and such a safe location. Thank you so much for everything. And Promise, who was looking after us was truly great. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Most importantly my friends who I was introducing South Africa too were blown away by everything. We all work in hospitality and purely out of habit every detail and care gets noticed so If I have the chance again to come back I will !!!

“Equivalent to "The Oyster Box Hotel"”
Reviewed December 9, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

Not knowing what to expect and being VERY difficult as to what and how things have to be, Karyn was awesome in sorting the whole family out. Our favourite holiday destination used to be "THE OYSTER BOX HOTEL" - until I met Karyn! What a hostess she is! Ask for it, immediately she acts, phone her, she sorts it out. Clean house, clean linen, clean toilets, clean bathrooms, clean fresh towels, clean pool, everything the perfect holiday should be. She would bend over backwards to keep guests happy. We were not worried about security as the house has everything it should have eg. alarm system, armed response, burglar proofing. Any of Karyn's houses/units can be recommended. This will be the second year we stay in one of her houses and I have already booked for 2016 December with her! You have not had the perfect Umhlanga holiday until you have spent time in one of Karyn's houses!! A fan for life!! Thank you so much.
