Ambleside is located in the lovely village of Umtentweni, 2km north of Port Shepstone. We offer guests four separate self-catering apartments, all overlooking a sparkling solar-heated pool with Jacuzzi and lovely garden with a stream running through it. Wake up to the sound of the waves crashing onto a deserted beach which is a 35 second walk away

The flexibility of the four apartments allows us to accommodate a couple looking for a private retreat or a large family wanting a venue for a get together.

Music is not all allowed so if you want to party, Ambleside is NOT the place to be.

The North Wing has a living room/kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms; one large bedroom and one small bedroom. Ideally it can accommodate 4 people but two sleeper couches in the living room will also allow 2 more.

The East Wing is a three story house with excellent finishes. The main en-suite bedroom is on the ground floor. Also on the ground floor is the granite fitted kitchen and a bathroom with a huge walk in shower. On the first floor is the living room with 43 inch LED TV and on the second floor is the attic bedroom. The house can hold up to 10 people as long as you don't mind sharing a room.

The South Wing was built in January 2015 to the highest standards. It consists of a studio apartment and a living room and has its own private garden. It can accommodate 4 people but three sleepercouches will allow more guests.

The Studio is our latest addition to Ambleside and was built in August 2016. It is an open plan apartment of 40 square metres and is ideally suited for a couple wanting a quiet break as it is away from the pool area. Two sleeper couches will allow up to four people to use the apartment.

Sociable and well behaved pets are welcome by agreement in advance but there will be an extra charge.

The cost of the apartments (North, South and The Studio is R750 a night, East is R950 a night) is for two adults and two children in school time. If there are more people (adults, children or babies), pets or you want to book during a school holiday or holiday weekend, then the cost is more.
