Our quaint, pet friendly and much loved self-catering beach cottage is ideally located 1 hour from Durban and 40m from Banana beach. With secure and safe swimming (under the supervision of lifesavers in season and on weekends), Banana beach is also shark-net protected and a popular surf spot. The cottage has no direct sea view and faces inland to protect you from onshore winds however, early morning coffee and evening gin and tonics on the beach are standard practice.

The space
What to expect:
There is a hospitality/property manager living on the property and Sbu will welcome you on arrival. Sbu services the cottage daily, this is included in the daily rate and cleaning includes: sweeping once a day, making beds and washing up twice a day.

The cottage floor slopes slightly due to movement on the sand-dune it was built on way back when. She is 100% stable now, but we left the crack in the floor as it is part of her history.

-A central lounge / dinning area.
-Two bedrooms: one with a queen sized bed, the second has a double bed.
-A third bedroom, a small children's bunk-room with 2 bunk beds.
-One main bathroom inside the cottage. Bath, toilet and hand basin.
-Well-supplied kitchen: gas hob, electric oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, pootjie pots, bodums (and decent pots).
-A covered veranda

-There is a septic tank, remember, non-biodegradable items are lethal, including beach sand.
-All 3 bedrooms have ceiling fans - essential against Mozzies
