“Perfect holiday home”

This is truly a home away from home. We stayed as a family in the three bedroomed house. It located within the quiet upmarket Umhlanga neighbourhood. It has priceless views of the Indian Ocean and within 5km of the popular Gateway Shopping Mall. It is within a 20km driving distance to the Durban beaches.The rooms are fairly big and very clean. All equipment and utensils are available. Wireless internet is available free of charge. I would definitely recommend this place for a perfect holiday getaway with family. The only challenge we had was that we arrived a bit late around 1830hrs and so didn't get proper orientation around the house. However, we enjoyed our stay!

“A home away from home with so many comforts”

The Oyster property that we stayed in was the perfect family vacation home. Close to the beach and town (although you do ideally need a car), well-furnished, secure and spacious. After a week in hotels it was a pleasure to come to a home, where we were comfortable, had lots of space to relax and were so well looked after by the wonderful Precious. I really feel i had a proper holiday! And thanks to the owners who were so helpful and attentive to our needs. It really helped to have a friendly face to welcome us. Would definitely stay again.

“Fantastic location and accommodation”

5 of us stayed in oyster lodge. The rooms were very clean, the kitchen is well kitted out and the location is quiet at night.

The lodge is very secure and has a great security system which made everyone feel very safe.

Sibaya casino which has some great shows is just 12 minutes away by car, the beach is less than 5 as is the main village where there are supermarkets, restaurants and pubs.

Teresa the house maid was excellent, her cleaning standards are exceptional, and it was lovely to talk to her each morning.

I can totally recommend oyster lodge as it really does have the full package and if I was ever to come back then we would come back without any question.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 31 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Stayed in number 25 across the road which is also owned by Karyn and Chris. We really enjoyed having the house to ourselves after a month of hotels and B & B's. This is our second year here and have booked for next year. The house is immaculate with a beautiful garden and sparkling pool. The house is well situated for Umhlanga and Gateway and has good access to the main roads. Chris and Karyn put their heart into making their guests happy.
