South Coast Holiday Cottage in Umzumbe
Blue Horizon is a private residence in Umzumbe on the Kwa-Zulu Natal South Coast. The cottage is situated on an acre of sea-facing property with an exotic view of the tranquil Indian Ocean – from beach to horizon.
The cottage has 3 enormous bedrooms which can accommodate 8 people comfortably. A large self-catering kitchen is equipped with all the necessary paraphernalia for the most discerning chef. Luxurious lounge, bar and dining areas are suitable for family gatherings and open-air relaxation. A huge shady patio, the focal point of the cottage, has a built-in braai and is designed for soaking up the sun while being mesmerised by the vastness of the peaceful turquoise sea as it gently ebbs against the unspoilt shore.
The majestic sloping garden is a display of indigenous trees and beautiful mown lawn for the kids to play or an after-dinner stroll, where one can discover an array of birdlife including the fascinating Green Pigeon.
Situated 100 metres from the waters-edge, as the crow flies, the walk to the beach is a slightly more moderate 150 metres on a gradually sloping walkway. The beach is quiet throughout the year and is rarely occupied by more than 40 people. For youngsters, or those wanting slightly more action, the main life-guarded beach is an amazing 800 metre adventure along an unspoilt fine-sand beach where small shells and thriving rock pools can be explored while having your feet gently massaged by waves as they caress the almost-white beaches.
To ensure carefree relaxation, cleaning staff can be arranged for the duration of your stay to wash dishes, clean house or do the laundry.
