About Botha House

Botha House is situated in the heart of one of the KwaZulu-Natal's most pristine coastal forest, perfectly nestled within the Umdoni Park and less than one hour's drive from Durban. A large indigenous tree-filled garden with rolling lawns is discreetly surrounded by an electric fence allowing you to enjoy the natural surroundings knowing that you can unwind in a secure environment.

With its relaxed atmosphere and country charm, Botha House offers fantastic diving, deep-sea fishing and birding opportunities all within a short walk or drive. For the discerning golfer, pack the golf clubs and tee-off on the picturesque Umdoni Park Golf Course or the well-known Selborne Country Club, both merely a well struck drive from our entrance. Guests can also enjoy peaceful nature walks through the lush coastal forest, sultry sundowner strolls along the pristine beaches or merely a lazy day spent lounging by the pool.

Comprising six exquisite double en-suite bedrooms, Botha House can comfortably host up to 12 guests. Our rooms offer king- and queen-size beds, panoramic views and ocean vistas. Authentic teak furniture, Oregon pine floors and elegant finishes allow guests to relax and unwind in absolute comfort.

Botha House provides an absolutely unforgettable experience as well as a relaxing retreat to all our visitors. We invite you to come and enjoy some of our friendly hospitality, tranquil setting and a place where you can kick your feet up and truly unwind.
