I stayed twice with my family and with my wife, at the Shark Room. This is actually much more than a B&B. The room is spacious, the balcony too, the bathroom has a jacuzzi for 2. We were welcomed and assisted by the owners who also can brief you about activities around (scuba diving in my case). The facilities include... More

We booked in this gorgeous guest house for a 3 week stay and could happily have stayed longer. We loved our room, The Shark Suite, a large room, with dressing room and lovely en suite bathroom with both corner bath and shower. It also has the biggest balcony i have ever seen on any hotel/guest house, with views to die... More

This is a beautiful big, comfortable guest house. The setting is one to dream off, close to the beach, a refreshing pool, very quiet area, lovely people. The hosts are good cooks and not shy of a good braai! Thanks guys!

I spent a few nights here with the plan to dive on Aliwal Shoal. Pre-trip planning was easy and Mick was extremely helpful with my endless questions on transport options. I was even able to come a day earlier due to a last minute change which was no problem. I requested the Shark Suite which was really nice. Such a... More

When we arrived at Umkomaas Guest House we were a little bit suprised. It is really placed near to the third hole of the Umkomaas Golf course. except the golf course there are no buildings between the guest house and the Indian Ocean. One can take an amazing look at the Indian Ocean. We arrived at the evening, tired of... More

A wonderful place to stop in Umkomaas. Mick and Tanga are fantastic hosts and make your feel like your staying at your best best friends house, not a guest house. I cant pay a bigger compliment than that. The leopard suite was lovely with an amazing view and the location is just perfect, we were sad to leave.

We stayed for just 1 night, after visiting Durban and to be close to Rocky Bay for shark cage diving. Location very close to sea and golf course. Welcome was friendly by owner Mick. Room (Tiger) was quite basic. Service was good; we were allowed to have breakfast outside normal hours, due to our planned activities. It was not the... More

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. Aliwal Shoal is... More

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...

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.
