About The Lazy Lizard Umhlanga

Umhlanga, Kwa Zulu-Natal, with its all year round mild weather and wide variety of things to do, is a popular holiday destination for both local and international travellers which offers something for everyone. Nestled in the heart of Umhlanga Rocks, the Lazy Lizard offers a private, tranquil retreat.

We are situated 2 km from the main bathing beach and the vibrant Umhlanga village, which offers a variety of restaurants and shops. We are also 2 km from Gateway Theatre of Shopping, the largest shopping centre in the Southern Hemisphere, and there are many other attractions in close proximity. 

The Lazy Lizard offers private, upmarket accommodation for both the holidaymaker and the discerning business executive. It consists of two comfortable, one-room cottages, each with its own entrance, air-conditioner, secure off--street parking, and private patio with a built-in braai. Each unit is fully equipped for self-catering and features a double bed, en-suite shower, TV, microwave, two-plate stove and fridge, as well as crockery and cutlery.

Towels and linen, irons and hairdryers are provided, and the units are serviced on a daily basis except for weekends and public holidays. Guests can choose between self-catering or a Continental breakfast served in the privacy of their room. Complimentary tea and coffee is also provided.

Stayed here on a business trip.  Place is very well located, close to Gateway.  Room was big, kitchen fully equipped, very clean.  Room cleaned in the morning.  Lots of security features.  Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Lazy Lizard in Umhlanga. We were treated very good and kind by Wendy and Chris. Apart from the weather, nothing was wrong with our stay there. The venue is nice and cozy and made us feel at home. We will definitely stay there again in the future.

Was greeted warmly. Accommodation was more than suitable for one who wants to have a self-catering place without the frills. Comfortable with all the necessary appliances. Quiet location, but close enough to all amenities in Umhlanga. Good value for money.Overall impression - comfortable and homely.
