I was invited to spend the night at the Beach House at Surf Spray cottages during a recent trip to Kwazulu Natal. Situated in Marina Beach (about 1 and 1/2 hour) from Durban, it felt a bit off the beaten track, but what a stunning surprise. The best of the house is the sea views (it is situated right above the sea and a small green nature area). I was only there for one night, but we saw so many dolphins in the evening and the morning - it looked like a dolphin highway!
Although the weather did not allow for swimming and we had very little time there, we did walk on the beaches - there is two Blue Flag beaches on either side of Beach House!
The owner, a very flamboyant Sonja (who was an actress, food reviewer and cooking school owner in her days!) made us feel very welcome. She also told us that the area also boasts two great golf courses and is famous for diving with sharks on scuba. This got me to sit up but alas there was no time for all the adventure on this trip!
Although we were entertained by Sonja at Beach House it is actually a large self catering house set in stunning tropical gardens.
The very great thing of Natal is that often the weather is so good in winter that you can actually have a beach holiday! So I think I will consider this as my next winter destination and see if I can find those sharks!

Our stay at cottage David was very cozy, well equipped and peaceful, we truly relaxed and felt close to nature. It's right on the beach, with a beautiful tropical garden. Bedroom has a seaview and you can hear the waves just below. Be on the lookout for the black eagles and blue duikers that visit occasionally. We felt safe at night with the staff guards. Marina beach is walking distance just down the street.

We have been staying over in cottage Freddy every year for the past four years now. The cottage caters for our every need and the gardens are just wonderful. Marina Beach offers the best swimming on an unspoilt, less crowded beach. Lots to see and do in the area but you always return to the peace and quiet at Surf Spray. We will return...

Cottage Abigail is by far my favorite holiday destination in South Africa. It is so quiet, right on the beach, there are Duikers and Dassies around and it is incredible value for money. With a fully equipped kitchen, DSTV, 2 bedrooms and a fantastic patio with a braai I will always return here.

I am between two minds. If I give my honest review, then everyone will know what a special place this is, and it might become too busy.
We stayed at Cottage David, and it was sublime. From the hospitality of Roxy to the fact that the cottage has everything you can think of to use. The peace and quiet you get from the beautiful garden and the sea view can not be expressed in words, but it certainly speaks to the soul. It is so close to the beach that if everyone does not want to go down, it is convenient and safe to go alone. And if you are the one staying behind, it is just as nice sitting on your own stoep or lying in bed or even sitting on the bench in the garden and being able to hear and see and smell the ocean. The little blue duikers are especially cute and such a special experience to sit and observe them.
The security guard patrols regularly during the evening, and Mike is super friendly. On the last day, we got guests next door, but the units are spaced so that privacy is not an issue, and you are barely aware of the neighbours.
Just take note that the garages are not big. A double cab without a bull bar will fit with literally a centimeter to spare. Anything bigger won't fit.
We will surely be back.

"Surf Spray is a quaint complex without the huge holiday crowds, pools and parties. Beach House is def the best option due to it's perfect location and the fact that it can cater for large families."
