Pleasant stay not too far outside of the Umhlanga CBD. The place is a little hard to find, but the owners were friendly, and responsive to our needs. Overall a good stay, with all the amenities you woould expect.

We were able to book a room at the last minute and loved the ambience. It was the perfect setting for relaxing, welcoming hosts, and friendly monkeys that roamed the area with adorable antics. Breakfast was delicious; served hot dishes to order, as well as muffins, fruit and yogurt.....a treasured experience for us.

Great place to stay at. Excellent Service! Great food! Just didn't appreciate the cat roaming around and jumping on table. Made me a bit uncomfortable.However, once discussed with management, the cat was moved elsewhere. Recommended that the dirt road in front of the property leading to the lodge be tarred.
