Four self-catering apartments
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. Four undercover entertainment areas ensure guests can get together away from the sun or rain. Wake up to the sound of the waves crashing onto a deserted beach which is a minute walk away
The East Wing
A three storey house built to the highest quality finishes,
On the ground floor is the main bedroom with an en-suite toilet and wash basin and 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 satellite TV.
The second floor is an attic bedroom that can be used as a dormatory for the children. It also has its own TV.
The East Wing can accommodate up to 10 guests as long as they don't mind sharing a room.
The South Wing
The SOUTH WING 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 two tv's and can accommodate five adults. Two sleepercouches will allow a family of up to seven people at an extra charge.
The North Wing
The NORTH WING is the original part of the house
All other apartments are recent extensions. We have recently upgraded the kitchen with new cupboards and granite worksurfaces and the bathroom has been totally refurbished. The North Wing has a living room/kitchen with TV, bathroom and two bedrooms (one big and one small). Ideally it can accommodate 4 people but two sleeper couches in the living room will also allow 2 more at an extra charge.
THE STUDIO is a 40 square metre open plan apartment located away from the pool for privacy.
Ideally it is just for a couple but two extras bed and sleepercouch will allow more people to use the apartment. The finishes are top class with a granite kitchen and porcelain tiles. The Studio has a 52 inch tv connected to Open View. Bring your own box and card for DSTV.
The En-Suite Room
The En-Suite Room is used when all the apartments are full.
It has a TV, fridge, kettle and microwave but no kitchen so guests have to eat out or order a take away. It has its own en-suite bathroom.
We are just 80 metres from a totally deserted beach. The public beach with a kiosk and lifeguards is a short walk away.
All apartments have a flat satellite screen tv with DSTV basic package or Open View
To keep the young ones busy!
All apartments have a gas hob, microwave, toaster and a kettle. Complimentary tea and coffee is initially provided but when it is gone, it is gone.
A free Wi-Fi internet signal can be picked up in all apartments. We have a 100 Mb fibre line so you should get a good speed.
Guests are welcome to use the solar heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi. In winter or cloudy weather there is not enough sunshine to heat the water.
For guests staying longer than 5 days, we will wash your clothes for free. We can also provide guests with a clothes drier, iron and ironing board.
We have four braais that may be used in the garden. Guests provide their own wood/charcoal and firelighters.
We have a remote controlled gate and a huge area for parking in the garden.
We have a net in the garden for badminton or volleyball. The indoor Entertainment Area also has table tennis and darts.
Towels and Linen
Please bring your own towels. We provide linen for the beds. If you use a sleepercouch then please bring your own linen.
The apartments are not serviced during your stay unless you stay for more than 7 days. All apartments have a mop, brush etc.
We are one of the few establishments that accepts sociable and well behaved dogs. Please advise if you are bringing dogs as there is an extra charge and extra deposit
You have your own yard or garden for your dog. If they are in the main garden, they must be on a leash
• Please do not let your dog on the furniture.
• We will provide you with a ‘poop scoop’ to clear up any dog poo.
• If you go out, take your dog with you. Please do not leave them alone.
Ozzy is our lovely Border Collie. He loves to play ball with the children. Sorry, but you can't take him home with you when you leave.
Safety and Security
SAPS statistics show that Umtentweni is the safest village on the South Coast. However we are not complacent. Ambleside has a high wall around its perimeter and at night spotlamps illuminate the garden as you walk past them. All windows have burglar bars. All patio doors have a trellisdoor. Eight security cameras allow us to monitor the garden.
Parents are totally responsible for the safety and supervision of their children, especially around the pool and stream areas.
If the municipality supply fails, we have 20 000 lites of back up water stored in tanks
