A wonderfully spacious & well equipped modern apartment in a pleasant & secure location. Only a short walk to amazing Illovo beach and Indian Ocean. We loved it.
We stayed, four adults, at 51 La Mer for a week and had a great time. The apartment is situated in a very nice complex with easy access to the beach and shops nearby. The apartment comes with everything and more so much more especially with the lovely team that caters to all you needs and requirements so much so that we came home with very little laundry!! You could not ask for a better team to assist you whilst staying there.
The surrounding area has lots to do and you are are in easy reach of Durban for shopping, nightlife and restaurants. One of the largest malls in the world is an easy 30 minute drive from the apartment. Around the area there are great places to eat if you do not want to cook but then if you do you have a fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to cook a simple to a complex meal.
The apartment has great views of the Indian Ocean and a lagoon, which we became obsessed with watching it fill and empty into the Ocean. The beach is great for walking on at anytime of the day and the local people on the beach are really friendly.
The only thing that we found hard to do was leave on our last day.
Lovely apartment located right on the beach front, so fabulous if you like long beach walks. The apartment is spacious, very comfortable and the staff are extremely nice and helpful. The resort manager had plenty of helpful advice to help us to enjoy our stay and any questions we had after our check-in were answered very quickly. Good shops only a few minutes away by car and we also discovered a lovely restaurant "Giorigio's" not too far away.
Waking to the sun rise over the Indian ocean each morning was amazing and sitting and having our evening meal outside at the end of the day with the sound of the sea in the background, was so lovely.
The apartment is large, beautiful and really well equipped, we had everything we needed.
You can walk for miles on the beach, which is only a short 5 minute walk away.
