“The most beautiful house we've ever stayed in!”
Reviewed September 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Honestly just sensational - where do I start? From the moment we arrived and went up the drive we all started smiling and knew we'd have a great time - as we did. The photos actually don't do the house justice. It is just stunning - the architecture, the decoration, the furnishings. Everything was not only beautiful but designed to be enjoyed and to work with the surroundings. We loved being in the pool during the day, before a bit of lounging on the incredibly comfortable sun loungers beside it, and then having a few sundowners on the front terrace. The view is just so wonderful it enhances your day! The outdoor eating area is also fantastic - as was all of the house!

Erik was wonderful to deal with, and it was a pleasure to meet Pie who settled us in with such charm. Mokey the housekeeper kept the house beautifully, and was never in our way.

'Zini' itself we loved - great selection of food in the supermarket and the deli at The Clay Oven (whwre we also got great takeaway pizza from). The beach is just amazing - miles of deserted sand.

We can't wait to go back - thanks so much for letting us stay Erik.

3 couples and 4 children stayed here for a long weekend and had such a great time.
The house is well equipped with plenty of space for the children and even when it rained, there was table football and table tennis.
Very relaxing and we would recommend house.

“Amazing house in friendly town”

Had a very enjoyable short stay at this stunning house just after New Year. We were made very welcome by the owner's mother and neighbours, who showed us around the house and provided advice and help about the area. The house keeper Moke was always on hand to make our stay hassle free and relaxed. The house and garden are very tastefully designed and well kept and it was a pleasure to spend time on the terrace and by the pool during the hot weather. Mtunzini is a very quiet little town and the estuary area in the reserve is worth exploring with wonderful natural forest and bird life. We even found zebras wondering around near the house and the female gave birth during our stay - amazing if unexpected to see suburban zebras ! Would thoroughly recommend Ongoye to couples or families looking for a peaceful oasis to relax in style and comfort.

Our one week stay at Ongoye was the highlight of our holiday in South Africa. The house is wonderful, just like something out of Grand Designs! The pool and garden were amazing and the view to die for, especially very early in the morning sitting on the balcony with a cup of tea in hand! we were very well looked after by Mokey, the Service Manager, and enjoyed meeting the next door neighbours who were also very helpful. We also much appreciated the kindness of the owner and it was a pleasure to meet him. The village has everything you could wish for, including the nearby beach, which was beautiful at sunset. We would love to return, and for much longer next time!

Thanks for such a lovely two weeks in Mtunzini! The pool was beautiful, the view over the hills was spectacular and the house was spacious, comfortably furnished and great for all our kids and family. We felt well taken care of by the neighbors and staff, and look forward to coming back sometime.

This absolutely is a great house, decorated with a great sense of style, and facilitated with everyting you need, in de friendly village of Mtunzini, which actually means" " a place in the shade". Very enjoyable were the sunsets with a glass of wine, the liquor store and a supermarket are just around the corner.

The pool is great!

Closeby some fantastic beaches and ofcourse the nature reserves. I had a great time staying here a couple of weeks. Had coffee at coffeeshop The Fat Cat everyday, meeting friendly local people and enjoying a great view from the terrace. And cheesecake!

“A strong recommendation, 5 star residence”

people found this review helpful

This residence in Mtunzini is simply great and a strong recommendation. "5 star". It is very well appointed, spacious, and really everything a demanding traveller expects is there. Both for a couple, as well as for a large family. More than sufficient bed and bathrooms. And everything is well maintained. Outside there is a large veranda, a large garden, a great swimming pool, and the views are stunning. Also the services are impeccable. One could hardly expect anything more. The villa is also very well located. Only an hour or so from Durban airport. There is hardly a better place to imagine to visit and experience all that Kwazulu Natal has to offer.
