“The best apartment I ever stayed in”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

You cannot get better. Very clean. Tastefully furnished to superior standards. Excellent location with everything you need around you, including a big supermarket on the ground floor.

Hermann is a great host. You are not his customer, you are his guest and he cares about your comfort.

The only sorry part is that I stayed alone for only two days and it was not available when I returned for a week with my wife.

It was my pleasure in meeting and welcoming you to 506 Lighthouse Mall. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and yes it was a pity your wife could not experience the same. Hopefully one day it will materialize! Thank you again for staying with us and the great review.

Best wishes
Hermann

“Amazing location, amazing unit, amazing stay.”

We had 2 nights here with our 2 young boys. The apartment is just beautiful. So well decorated and in an amazing location.

In the building is a mall, with PickNPay, restaurants, coffee and views to the ocean.

The kitchen is well stocked, and lounges are so comfortable, and there are 2 bathrooms.

We can't fault this propriety and it was incredibly well priced.

Would definitely return.

We had a wonderful stay at the Lighthouse Mall. It really is a wonderful little haven home from home with all that you need for that extra comfort. The best location in the place for access t the beach just a 5 or 10 min stole down the hill each day and back.

Tina & Wayne are always about or contactable if needed and on hand to help if requested. A huge thanks to them both for all that they offer and do for their holiday clients to make your stay that bit extra special. Thank you Tina & Wayne... x

Well equipped, nicely furnished and centrally located apartment. Had washing machine and tumble dryer which proved useful. Also managed to watch the Six Nations rugby on TV which was a bonus.

“506 Lighthouse Mall”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

If you arelooking for a special place, self catering in the Umhlanga area do not look further than this property. We are a couple in our 50's and like most people we like things to be easy whilst on holiday and this lovely apartment really did tick all the boxes for us. Right from the booking months back to the day we left after 7 days the service was first class. Tina and Wayne will look after you very well but not only that but the apartment is serviced daily other than Sunday's and thanks to Precious not one issue for our stay so thanks for that. As would be expected for an apartment like this, everything worked just as it should. The location is perfect for a stress free holiday with shops, bars and restaurants right at your door. Not that we were concerned about security, the apartment always felt safe as you needed a key fob for the elevator, another for the door to the apartment level and a ky for the front door. If you do have a car as we did then the underground carpark is extra easy to get in and out of. We didn't use the balcony very often but I would imaginge you may have to watch if you have very young kids but that goes for all apartments with a balcony I suppose. Most people say they would come back to a place but most times don't. We would definately come back to this apartment if we are to stay in the area.

Thank you for choosing 506 Lighthouse Mall for your stay in Umhlanga Rocks. Some guests don't even hire a car as you are right on top of the 'Village' with everything you need down on the ground floor. We appreciate all the positive comments and will wait for your promised return visit. Kind Regards, The Team
