“Lovely apartment”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Perfectly located, this apartment is spacious and comfortable and was just right for our family of 5 including three young children. The beds were very comfortable and the maid washed the linen and towels every second day. The apartment was spotless upon arrival and Filip the owner was always on hand to help us with any queries. We had a wonderful holiday and would definitely come back. If you're looking for a place within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants with stunning sea views then this is for you. The only thing we missed was that the apartment was not within walking distance of a swimming beach so we had to drive every day - but it is literally a 2 minute drive with ample parking. We would definitely come back!

Hi Megan, thank you for taking your time to write a review.
We take great pride in acting as a ‘home away from home’ for all of our guests and it is lovely to read that you felt so welcome and comfortable and had a wonderful holiday in Umhlanga.
I am extremely glad you took the opportunity to take advantage of our beautiful surroundings. Being situated in the heart of Umhlanga, close to all amenities and walking distance, we overlook the ocean with direct beach access. We are also a very short walk away from countless restaurants and stores in Umhlanga Rocks, as well as being a stone throw from the beach. We looking forward to your return, Kind Regards Filip

“Perfection”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A beautiful three bed two bathroom apartment within walking distance of the old town restaurants, shops etc etc. Located in a very safe area, which was essential as my wife and I were travelling with our two grandchildren age 10 and 15. The apartment was spacious, a large balcony with superb sea views. Peaceful and quiet, the apartment was just perfect for us in everyway.

Filip our landlord was extremely helpful, on hand if we needed anything. A maid attended the apartment every other day.

We love Umhlanga and would definitely stay at Searock again.

“Relaxing, Comfortable with wonderful sea views”
Reviewed 24 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We just spent 9 fabulous days at Searock. The apartment is spacious, clean, airy and has all the amenities one could ask for. The view from both sea facing bedrooms / lounge and verandah are fantastic. Searock is just a stroll away from all the fabulous restaraunts Umhlanga has to offer as well as the beach and Umhlanga promenade.

We will definately be coming back and hopefully it will be soon !

Mandy Walker.

....Forgot to mention Purity the flat attendant...she always arrived with a smile on her face and left the flat spotless everyday..Thanks !
