We stayed for six days in crooked tree cottage. Everything was nice and clean, Umhlanga seemed to be quite safe and we had a pleasant stay. But most of all, our host, Helen Oehler, was outstanding friendly and provided us with maps and helped us with repairing the car etc. We definitely recommend this place.
