Southbroom is a quaint town just off the South coast of KwaZulu Natal in South Africa. It is quiet and peaceful and the beach is right on your doorstep.
The accommodation is simple, clean and comfortable. As the unit is self catering, the kitchen had all the amenities we needed to cook our meals.
From the patio you look out into the ocean so we were able to spot a few whales and plenty of dolphins! The owner even supplies a telescope for viewing further into the horizon.
The sunsets are beautiful and beaches pristine. A definite stay if you require peace and quiet, relaxation and some ocean time!
We arrived at the Southbroom self-catering apartment beginning of October last year and were pleasantly surprised and impressed with the apartment. The accommodation is beautiful, the sea breeze is wonderfully refreshing and everything clean and pleasantly decorated.
We found the local environment extremely quiet (may have been due to it being out of season), relaxing and enjoyable. We liked being able to cook our own food in the well-equipped kitchen and then having the odd delicious breakfast up in the local Southbroom village made our stay really fantastic.
It was wonderful to be able to watch whales in the bay (almost every day) from the balcony and then take a 3-minute walk out of the apartment down to the sea and a beautiful semi-private beach where we strolled endlessly for kilometers just enjoying the waves, the fisherman and in my opinion paradise.
As this was going to be our home and part-time work environment for the next three weeks we could not have asked for more.
We also enjoyed a visit to the Riverbend Crocodile Farm, and a definite not to miss is waffels (mmmmm) at the well known Waffel house in Ramsgate we went there more than once - LOL
Things that we didn't get to do but will definitely include on our next holiday are a visit to the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve and to hopefully catch the June / July Sardine Run.
I can highly recommend this Southbroom self-catering apartment to anybody wanting a self-catering getaway. Everything from booking to arriving and leaving was an absolute breeze.
