We live in Umhlanga on the Dolphin Coast, a prestigious, upmarket neighbourhood with well controlled access and security.
The apartment is set in an indigenous garden, with cascading waterfalls and pools that flow into a big Koi pond. Our kids love the garden, with a 100 places to hide and build forts, and a tree house with a suspended walkway - definitely the coolest place in the village for kids!
The apartment has a completely separate entrance to the house, and as the entire property has a boundary fence, you will have your own remote to open the gate.
It's an open plan, spacious apartment with sea views. Most mornings you'll be able to sit outside sipping a coffee and watch the dolphins frolicking in the waves. Whale season brings a whole new dimension to our ocean.
The apartment is set on the same level as the pool deck, and in the morning you can enjoy the chorus of birds that come to feed in the garden. Looking through the lounge curtains you can watch the sun rising out of the sea.
The bedroom has two single beds, a wardrobe with hanging space and drawers, and had a separate bathroom attached.
The bathroom has a shower as well as a bath.
The kitchen is equipped with a stove/oven combo, a microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle.
It's open plan with a dining table, and leads into the lounge area.
THINGS TO DO
We love walking to the village (5 minutes) in the evening, which has a number of pubs and restaurants and supermarkets , or to stroll along the beautiful Umhlanga beachfront promenade (3 minutes from the house) for a walk or a swim.
For a cafe with fresh croissants and pastries we recommend Vovotela or Ferruccis. For a larger menu we recommend Europa Pizza – all in the village. Our favourite Thai spot is Mo Noodles. (The hot and sour chicken and prawn soup is a world beater!)
Nearby banks include ABSA (branch), FNB, Standard and Nedbank (ATMs).

I value time over money, time to build memories, relationships and experiences.
As Seneca wrote "It is not that we have a short space of time, but that we waste much of it. Life is long enough, and it has been given in sufficiently generous measure to allow the accomplishment of the very greatest things if the whole of it is well invested."
I try and spend everyday in the pursuit of seeing the good in life, and in the people around me.
I married my childhood sweetheart, Sue and we have 2 beautiful kids, 4 dogs, 12 chickens, 2 guinea fowl, 4 Indian ring necks and a budgie.
Living in Umhlanga with a spectacular sea view and access to the ocean everyday is a blessing. I love kite surfing, spearfishing, surfing, cray fishing...just being in the sea makes me happy.
We've lived in the same house for 20 years, and renting out a part or all of it has always been part of our plan.
Airbnb has just made it easier to manage.
We love travelling and travellers...come and visit us.
