Ambleside is located in the lovely village of Umtentweni, 2km north of Port Shepstone..
We offer guests four separate self-catering apartments,
all overlooking a sparkling solar-heated pool with Jacuzzi and lovely
garden with a stream running through it. Wake up to the sound of the
waves crashing onto a deserted beach which is a 35 second walk away.
The flexibility of the four apartments allows us to accommodate a couple
looking for a private retreat or a large family wanting a venue for a
Costs are based on a family of 2 adults and 2 children per unit. Any
more is an extra cost.
Music is not all allowed so if you want to party, Ambleside is NOT the
place to be.
The solar-heated Jacuzzi is as hot as a bath tub if the sun is shining.
The North Wing has a living room / kitchen, bathroom and two separate bedrooms. It can normally accommodate 4 people but the two sleeper couches in the living room will allow for two more.
The South Wing was completed in January 2015 and has superb finishes. It has its own garden and offers privacy for those wanting a quiet break.
It consists of two rooms; a studio apartment and a living room / second bedroom.
The South Wing has Open View TV (bring your own card and box for DSTV) a playstation and a DVD player. and can accommodate four adults. Three sleepercouches will allow a family of up to seven people at an extra charge.
The EAST WING is a three-story house built in April 2012 to the highest
On the ground floor is the main bedroom with an en-suite toilet and wash
basin and Open View tv. Also on the ground floor is the kitchen which
has granite work surfaces, a large fridge / freezer and a fitted gas
hob. The downstairs bathroom has a large walk in shower.
The huge living room / second bedroom is on the first floor with a 43
inch full satellite TV and a Playstation.
The second floor is an attic bedroom that can be used a dormatory for
the children. The East Wing can accommodate up to 10 guests as long as
they don’t mind sharing a room.
THE STUDIO was built in August 2016 and is the latest addition to Ambleside. It is a 40 square metre open plan apartment located away from the pool for privacy.
Ideally it is just for a couple but two sleeper couches will allow an extra two people to use the apartment. The finishes are top class with a granite kitchen and porcelain tiles.
The instant gas powered shower is extra large and heats up in just 30 seconds. The Studio has a 52 inch tv connected to Open View. Bring your own box and card for DSTV.
