About Umkomaas Guest House

Umkomaas Guest House is an ideal holiday location for the Golfers as we are situated on the third tee of Umkomaas Golf course on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast.

We are located close to the dive charters for divers who wish to dive the Aliwal Shoal which is one of the worlds top 10 dive sites. Enjoy all year sunshine in the sub tropical climate. June & July months are a bit cooler and an ideal time to witness the Sardine Run. You may spot Dolphins, Sharks, Cape Gannets & Game Fish.

Relax in our gardens or swim in our 100,000 litre swimming pool.

Friendly family run home which is within walking distance of the beach. We have five bedrooms, four of which are sea facing and one has a sea view. All are clean and tastefully decorated. All rooms have a silent running Bar Fridge, TV, Video, Hairdryer, Tea and Coffee facilities. We have a fully walled property complete with off street parking.

We look forward to guests, existing and new from around the world visiting us.

Mick and Sue made us feel right at home, and went out of their way to assist us, from finding lovely restaurants, to advising in the best snorkelling sites. It felt like a home away from home! The breakfast was delicious, the room was immaculate and I will definitely stay there again.
