              Loved the close proximity to the beach, I could see and hear the beach from my balcony, I stay for one to enable me to be closer to the airport for my early morning flight, next time I would book at least for two nights to fully enjoy the beauty of the area. The host was wonderful, welcoming, friendly and the communication prior to check in was much appreciated.

              Umdloti is a lovely place with a beautiful natural tidal pool and warm seas and I liked the fact that our place was a 2 min.walk from the sea. However the flat's back bedroom was dark and cold and had a serious mould problem. Everyday we had to take my daughter's mattress and bedding out into the sun to air. And because of the marauding Vervet monkeys in the area which kept coming into the flat to steal food, it was very hard to air the place. We had to continuously be vigilant about packing away every scrap of food (even our vitamins) and putting a stool on the bin so the monkeys didn't creat...
