Umtendwe is a small private nature reserve with two thatched luxury African-style holiday cottages. Situated alongside the beach and a small lagoon, the cottages are surrounded by unspoilt nature at its best – pristine beaches, bays, milkwood trees, green hills and lush forest provide the setting for an idyllic stay at this amazing gem of South Africa’s Eastern Cape Coast.
The living areas of the cottages flow to shady, wind-protected areas under the milkwood trees, a mere few metres from the beach and small lagoon. There are many shaded forested areas for reading, dining or simply chilling, each with its own character. This area is ideal for parents and children, with safe and convenient swimming and playing areas along the Umtendwe lagoon. A special feature of this site is the wind protection around the cottages and the sheltered serene decks around the lounges and bedrooms.
Hikes and beach walks accessible and sign posted.
