Thank you for the feedback on your stay at D3 Sea Lodge. As you mentioned, the split level apartment is ideal for families with children and the 'Village' that is ten minutes walk down the road adds to the convenience. We hope that you will stay with us again on a future holiday in Kzn.

Best wishes
The Team

“Absolutely fantastic.”
Reviewed January 27, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed here as part of our road trip in Southern Africa. The house is beautuful, tastefully decorated, nicely located near the beach. Gardens nicely manicured. It had everything we needed. It is pricey but I am of the opinion that you get what you pay for, it was everything I imagined it would be. Very true to their website. Thank you for a fantastic time......we will be back sooner than you think.

“Out of this world”
Reviewed January 17, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed at D3 Sealodge in Umhlanga from the 9th to the 16th of January 2015. It was an apartment out of this world - clean, cool (air conditioning), free Wi-Fi, with clean towels and linen. The management staff were excellent -taking every comment and recommendation serious. Thank you to Jack, and Mark for making our week so special. Thank you Tina for making the booking so efficient.

“Slice of Heaven for toddler or 80 year old (even in winter!)”
Reviewed October 11, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Travelled with my husband our two year old and my 80 year old mother.
Great location close to all amenities plus beach. Large grocery store is 30 min walk or 5 min drive. Massive shopping mall is 20 min drive. Extremely safe. Walk to the boardwalk was a little bit exhausting for my 80 year old mother, but we had not trouble and toddler loved the wide stairs and sounds of the monkeys. One tried to get into our kitchen twice, but we shooed it away by making a lot of noise and walking to the window. All appliances were top-notch and everything worked well. Professionally managed and easy to find. We had plenty of room and extra blankets/room heater made a great cozy addition to the chlly temps at night.
Lavatory on the ground floor had a small problem (slight odour), but was perfectly clean and in working order at all times. The pool was unheated and so we only managed a quick dip before the toddlers lips turned blue, but she wanted to stay in anyway. Granny pool on the beach (small "rock tidal pool"), was also very brisk but fun. The tide is quite rough - unsure what swimming is like on the beach in summer. Nevertheless - can drive up the coast for more calm tidal pool excursions. All in all even despite the season, this was a fantastic getaway and D3 Sea Lodge was easily the best investment of the trip for us! Would (and will) certainly stay again.

“Best in Umhlanga”
Reviewed September 8, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

What can I say! We have stayed in a number of different, and very nice places on the North Coast over the last ten years. This was the top of the pops. Well maintained, comfortable and like a home away from home. Great attention to detail to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Have booked two more stays before the end of the holiday!
