About Blue Horizon

Blue Horizon is a private residence in Umzumbe on the Kwa-Zulu Natal South Coast, South Africa. The cottage is situated on an acre of sea-facing property with an exotic view of the warm, tranquil Indian Ocean – from beach to horizon.The cottage has three enormous bedrooms which can accommodate six people comfortably. A large self-catering kitchen is equipped with all the necessary paraphernalia. Large 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 (barbeque) 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 beautifully 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 and Purple Crested Loerie.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 500-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.

Golf: While not on a golf course, the cottage is within easy driving distance of some of the South Coast's most magnificent courses - Wild Coast, Selbourne, San Lameer, Southbroom, Umdoni, and five others.

We had a great stay. The place was better than advertised. Quiet close to beach, well maintained a place we will visit again.

Our family spent Christmas 2014 at Blue Horizon. We did enjoy our holiday in Umzumbe, but we did feel that the accommodation was in need of some basic maintenance. The kitchen equipment was disappointing as it was contrary to the description on the internet; however the accommodation attended to our basic needs.

We had a most enjoyable stay. It provided what we were looking for, and we will most probably use it again in the future.
