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... 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!
