A great place to relax and unwind- the owners Mick and Thanga are super friendly and have great stories to share. You can see the golfers play (for someone whose partner is a golfer, this is a big deal!). The town is very quaint and offers the ultimate relaxation should you be a beach and diving lover.

First trip to SA, first stay in a SAfrican guest house. If this were darts it would be bulls eye with the first dart. I hoped for a good location, good value, good service, good memories, and got much more. I've stayed in a few places in the last forty countries. Some good some bad, some very good some very... More

I travel on business and pleasure regularly down the South Coast of Kzn. I plan my visits to include at least a stopover for one night at Umkomaas Guest House.

all the previous reviews were so accurate...a very comfortable guest house , fantastic breakfast and 180 degree sea views. You want to move in .But the best part about the stay is Mick and Tanya. Great people who make you feel like you are old friends and go out of their way to assist you in any way they can

It was sad that we could only stay one night. But this was really nice and comfortable! We were glad that our supposed accomodation was canceled and we found this guest house!

From the moment i stepped into the guest house I felt not just like a guest but a long time friend. The room was huge and and very comfortable. It was so quiet and peaceful that lying on the bed for a few seconds was a sure way of having an unscheduled nap. Mick and Tanya were such fun to... More

This is a wonderful and welcoming place to come to after a very long drive over the Tanskei (Wild Coast). We had a very large room and the views were out of this world.

There is no place like Umkomaas Guest House! Words can't express how great a place this is. Beautiful rooms, so clean, so spacious, immaculate! Food delicious! The whole house was amazing.
