We had the most wonderful, peaceful and relaxing weekend, the hostess was an amazingly wonderful person. The Chalet was lovely and spacious, the cleaner comes in in the morning to clean, except on Sundays and Public holidays. The rooms were spacious and the was enough sleeping place for up to 8 people. You pay per person if you are more than 4 people if not then you pay per chalet. There is a lovely camping site on the property as well as a river by which can canoe down to the see when is it in full flow, unfortunately, the river was very low when we were there.

We stayed in the Eagle cottage. Stunning scenery. So peaceful. We loved the cozy, yet spacious cottage. The dogs loved roaming around the large garden, and we could relax knowing that they were safe and fenced in. only a 5min drive to beach, but the tranquility of the unit makes up for not being ON the beach. This place is great for couples, families and very pet-friendly. Kitchen is well-equipped and the unit is kept very clean. thank you for a lovely stay.

Riverbend Campsite in Umtentwini is a magic place. Cleared of lush bush and planted with kikuyu grass, two hundred meters along the Umtentwini River, a tropical meadow big enough for 20 campsites or more. Two horses and I are the sole occupants.Β  Access is down a steep hill. Tough on knees but with a thousand plants, birds, butterflies and small buck to see, smell and hear. Toilets (paper, soap and hand towel provided) and showers are clean. Sometimes there is warm water. The entire property is litter free. A-one rating. Two kms, up and downhill to the nearest shopping centre: bread, milk, pizza, beer, pharmacy, two restaurants etc. On the old the main road.

We stayed over at the 32A bend cottage. Nice clean and affordable. The cottages rooms are big and there is lots of space. The most awesome aspect are the trees and birds. Will definitely put it on my places to stay again.
