This was our 4th stay at One on Hely and again we loved it very much. We had a lovely and clean room with beautiful views over the garden. Breakfast was delicious and Teigan gave us a very warm welcome! We did some beautiful hikes along the beach and through the coastal forest and mangroves. Mtunzini is a lovely little gem to which we will gladly return!

One on Hely is really an outstanding Guest House. We had a delightful, one night stay. Seonaid went out of her way to assist with a very early start to go birding to the mangroves and dune forest of Mtumzini. She prepared an outstanding pack breakfast and arranged for us to have a later departure time than normal. Our room on the first floor was spotless and showed great attention to detail. The sea view was wonderful and there were trumpeter hornbills flying and perching in the tall fig trees in the garden. We can highly recommend Hely on One if you are looking for a Guest House in the beautiful little town of Mtunzini. John and Lesley

Seonie, the owner welcomed us, followed the Covid protocol and show us our room. Beautiful place, spacious, neat and a beautiful bathroom. The view is over the forest and the ocean. The swimming pool is a must. At night it is a romantic place. Thanks for the awesome stay. See you soon. R&T

One on Hely is an absolute must! The location, sea views, landscaped gardens, spacious and beautiful decorated rooms are of the highest standards. A Gem of the Mtunzini town, which has so much on offer if you enjoy the outdoors. We had a wonderful weekend. 10/10 in my opinion.

The over and above things One-On-Hely performed for us: 1) Arranged a bird guide for us 2) Picked up a take away dinner for us - getting very tired of Covid 19 3) Provided a take-away breakfast the morning we went birding 4) We left two jackets and they drove them to the barricade (protection from rioters) where we picked them up. Of course we will stay here should we return to this area of South Africa.
