About Oyster Cottages

Oyster Cottages consists of two independent self-catering cottages, sharing a single corner property, nestled in one of Umhlanga’s oldest suburbs

Perfectly situated, the self-catering units are a mere five-minute drive from beaches, restaurants and shopping centers. Once the farmhouse of an early Umhlanga fruit farm, the six-sleeper main cottage, Oyster Lodge, has been elegantly renovated, whilst the spacious two-sleeper Pearl Cottage was built from scratch.

Acacia trees line the road and guests are welcomed to a well-manicured garden with partial sea views. The cottages are serviced daily from Mondays to Fridays, with weekend servicing and babysitting arranged at an additional cost. the cottages are also fully equipped with laundry facilities for guests' convenience.

The cottage was beautiful. The staff were friendly. And I loved that I could bring my puppy with me! Will definitely recommend and return.

We were upgraded to a bigger unit. The view, location & comfort was excellent. The main gate did not close fully and we were not notified that another couple was going to occupy premises as well. The tiles in the home was not cleaned properly. Some rolls was left behind from previous occupants. Overall support from agent & place was excellent
