5 Sugar Crest is a stylish penthouse apartment perched high on the crest of the thickly forested primary dune. The position commands spectacular views over the Indian Ocean, where guests may spot whales, dolphins and diving seabirds. Let the crashing of the waves on the shoreline below lull you to sleep.

The apartment comprises 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, with a third full sized bedroom leading off the entrance hall. The 2 main bedrooms are both en suite. The front main bedroom contains a king-size bed and the second bedroom contains a queen-size bed. The third bedroom contains 2 single beds that can be made into a king-size bed or vica versa if given prior notice. All beds are fitted with quality cotton linen. The spacious kitchen is open plan leading on to separate lounge and dining areas. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering with a fridge, oven, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher and a washing machine and a tumble dryer for guests convenience. Guests can also cook on a gas braai under the stars on the open patio. The apartment is equipped with fast unlimited Wi-Fi and a Smart TV with full DStv. There is ducted air-conditioning throughout.

Please be aware that it is a penthouse and that the balcony is very high off the ground and there is a jacuzzi so young children do need to be supervised. The apartment is not located right on the beach and hence the location is tranquil. The beach is about a 3 minute drive away.

Guests can visit Umdloti beaches, where the swimming areas are patrolled by lifeguards and protected with shark nets. There are a myriad of in-shore tidal pools to explore at low tide and the Umdloti Beach tidal pool system is ideal for a family swim. Umdloti offers 2 fine dining restaurants; Bel Punto and Mundo Vida. La Casa Nostra offers a traditional café-style Italian food experience. Sandbar Restaurant offers laid-back chic, sundowner cocktails and lovely food. On the casual side Tasca Pizza is recommended. Bush Tavern offers a friendly local bar and restaurant atmosphere and Caffé Java is the local bright open beach-style coffee shop. For takeaways, visit Spud Fish and Chips and Steers. Umdloti has a pace of its own and real small-town ocean-village charm.
