Bella Vista is a self-catering cottage set in Leisure bay overlooking a private wetland with an abundance of birdlife and small antelope. It is one and a half hours away from Durban and is close to a range of pristine beaches, within a three minute drive or ten minute walk.
If you wish to escape traffic, barking dogs and the hustle and bustle of city life, then a week spent here will do you the world of good - it's tranquillity personified.
The cottage has four bedrooms and an outside flatlet. The cottage’s kitchen is well-equipped for all self-catering needs. Guests have a television and a DVD player at their disposal. The satellite decoder is activated on arrangement. There is also a lovely patio with braai facilities where guests can unwind and socialise. The flatlet has a double bed and an en-suite bathroom with a shower.
The back of the property is securely fenced and the front is off ground at first floor level with security beams, an alarm and double lock up garages add to your security and comfort. The back yard is pet friendly for those wanting to bring their best friends. (Unfortunately - No pets or smoking are permitted inside.)
Leisure Bay has some of the best beaches on the Natal South Coast. Kids Beach, Peter Pan Bay, Glenmore Beach, T.O. Strand and Drakes Bay are all within close proximity.
These beaches were made for swimming, body boarding and surfing and are unrivalled on the South Coast.
Ladder Rock and Dassie Rock are short walk down the road where fishermen can enjoy some of the best Shark, Garrick and Bronzie fishing on this stretch of coast. Spear fishermen will love spots like Pulpit Rock, Ladder Rock, Drakes Bay, T.O. Point, Lighthouse and Spiro's. Crayfish will often be on the menu for those who put in a little time at these spots.
The Wild Coast Sun, Sanlameer and Port Edward Country Club golf courses are in close proximity and attractions like Water world, the Red Desert National Heritage site, Beaver Creak Coffee Farm and Mac Banana are all around the corner from the cottage and are not to be missed.
Mountain bikers are a short drive to Clearwater Trails which offer several MTB trails from novice to expert. Designed by Jan Abbot, these traverse the Mtumvuna Gorge and Beaver Creek Coffee Farm and offer trails from 5km to 20km. Arrangements can be made for a beach to ride to Mtentu where you can overnight at the rustic camp and explore the Mtentu Gorge with its beautiful waterfalls and legendary Kingfish.
Crags View animal rescue is close by for those wishing to experience the work Craig does recuing animals in distress. Just around the corner is the Mtamvuna nature reserve which offers some of the best walking trails in the area with spectacular views of the Gorge.
