Looking for Umhlanga Accommodation? Crooked Tree cottage is a lovely B&B and Self-Catering accommodation establishment set in the heart of Umhlanga Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, one of the premier holiday accommodation and tourist hot spots in South Africa! It is literally a stone throw away from Umhlanga Village with its golden sandy beaches.

The accommodation consists of a 3-roomed cottage and 3 Deluxe suites, all of which are let as B&B accommodation most of the year. They are both, however, ideally suited for those of you who prefer to holiday on a self-catering basis. The cottage can accommodate 6-7 guests and the studio units can accommodate 2 sharing with Room 4 accommodating up to 2 adults and 2 small children. Some of the facilities include air-conditioners, tea and coffee stations, hairdryers, TV, DStv Commercial channels available in all suites as well as in the shared lounge area, and Wi-Fi, fridge, microwave, 2-plate stove and a barbecue is available on request.

The cottage tastefully decorated and has a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious dining and lounge area opening onto a sea-facing balcony. There is a deck area with seating at the entrance to the cottage with barbecue facilities available on request.

Crooked Tree Cottage is aptly named for the indigenous trees that drape over the cottage as well as other parts of the garden. These trees are ideal for the humid subtropical climate of coastal KwaZulu-Natal as they provide a restful cooling shade on our hot sunny summer days and lose their leaves in the winter making the view even more spectacular. The sea views from the balconies are magnificent and the bird life is amazing to watch. Vervet monkeys are almost daily visitors and the occasional Woolly Necked Storks can be spotted in the branches of the trees.

Gateway Theatre of Shopping is a 2-minute drive away and Durban CBD and ICC are about 15 minutes drive. Umhlanga New Town Centre and the La Lucia Ridge office park are on our doorstep. It is close to both the M4 and the N2 highways making access to Durban and the rest of KZN extremely efficient. This makes it an ideal accommodation venue for both holidaymakers and business people alike.
