4.5 out of 5

Umdloti Milkwood is a unique, rustic seaside getaway only meters from Umdloti beach. Affordable self to catering accommodation whether it’s one person or a group of up to 22 people. The property has 8 chalets, each with its own ensuite and kitchenette. There is a TV with DStv(satellite TV) in each chalet. Linen and towels are provided and the rooms are serviced daily.

There is a communal braai/BBQ & seating area for guests to use and a single parking bay available for each chalet. It’s a 150m walk to the local shops, restaurants and bars so you never have to drive anywhere during your stay.

Location

One of the main surfing breaks is 50m away(across the road). Other breaks in Umdloti are all walking distance, 150m to 1km. It's 25 min drive south from Umdloti to Durban where there are many world famous breaks. Ballito, home of the Ballito Pro(ex Mr Price Pro, Gunston500), is 25 mins drive north of Umdloti.

The main kiting beach in Umdloti is also right across the road so Umdloti is the perfect location for a surfers/kiters getaway.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

I needed somewhere to stay near the airport and didn't have time to read any reviews. The room rate was really good when converted to pounds and the location looked amazing given the very reasonable price. The location is amazing - a lovely safe beach across the road, 4 minute, if that, walk to the nearest shops and a little further on the wonderful rock pools and swimming beaches. The rooms were clean and had all the facilities needed for a relaxing 'get away from it' all holiday. All the staff were extremely helpful and attentive, the braai area looked very inviting. In my opinion the bad reviews are unfounded and I have already recommended Umdloti Milkwood to some of my SA friends.

The weather happened to be awful but Jeff helped make it an enjoyable trip by hanging out and chatting over a beer or two. A good simple option for being literally 20m from the beach. Just hope you don't get the worst weather of the year!

Die Nähe zum Beach ist hervorragend. Die Einrichtung würde mal eine kleine Modernisierung benötigen. Ansonsten ist die Anlage bestens geeignet für Familien mit Kindern, da es nicht so überkandidelt ist. Die Vermieterin ist freundlich und das Personal zuvorkommend.
