After a "cruisey" 35 minute drive from Durban you arrive at House on the Beach, at Widenham/Umkomaas. And it is quite simply that. fortunately it sits high enough up on the point for one to escape the moist sea air and enjoy the vista that this exceptionally located property has to offer. The most alluring point to this property is its outdoor entertainment area. Shielded from the elements you can still lie on the Daybed and gaze all the way back to Umhlanga (some 80 kms away) with all the interlocking bays and points rolling out for as far as the eye can see. This is truly South Coast. While you having a braai you can watch your children playing in the surf (although not a protected beach, the locals have been swimming here for generations) or rock pools below.

The House on the Beach has a distinct Cape Cod feel when you enter. The wooden ceilings and floors have been white washed, the kitchen is all cream and white. There is a ball and claw stand alone bath for the ladies to relax in after a tough day on the beach. The main house consists 3 queen sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There are 2 outside rooms, one is a Kingsized extra length ensuite air con room and the other has 2 single beds which is alsoensuite.
