The Merry Crab is situated in Munster and offers comfortable self-catering accommodation in a charming, secure holiday hideaway, carved out of the lush tropical vegetation of a reserve. From the lodge, a shaded pathway leads through the Admiralty Marine Reserve inhabited by duiker and dassie to a sandy beach and the warm Indian Ocean.

On arrival, guests will be met by 'the crew', the helpful and friendly staff, who will assist with secure off-street parking and show guests to their unit. The accommodation comprises studios, casitas and cabanas all with en-suite showers and toilets. The units are serviced daily in the morning and are equipped with stoves, fridges, microwave ovens, and crockery and cutlery. Linen and bath towels are also provided and guests are required to bring their own beach towels. The rooms are also equipped with DStv selected channels and overhead paddle fans, and also have access to private sun decks and braai facilities.

The lodge features a reception, lounge and entertainment area where guests can read, play board games and watch TV. Adjacent to the lounge is the fenced swimming pool complete with loungers. The 'Potjie Boma' is a large thatched lapa with its own braai facilities and pizza oven, ideal for all weather-braai and parties.

The Merry Crab is the ideal getaway for couples, families, and small groups. Activities in the area include horse riding, quad biking, deep-sea fishing excursions and scuba diving in Shelly Beach. The Merry Crab is conveniently located within close proximity to the beach and is just 15 minutes from Port Edward.
