              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.

              Think that the bathrooms might do with a bit of an upgrade.

              will not book at Carpe Diem again, place is dark and so "cold" stove, microwave and taps not much to brag about, not once did owner come around to check, we asked for a bin bag never received lets just say we did better holidays in Umdloti
