The veranda enjoys morning sun until midday and then there is shade enabling you to take in the picturesque views whilst relaxing on the patio furniture.

The kitchen is well equipped with a modern washing machine, tumble drier, dishwasher and Nespresso coffee machine.

The unit has a double electric garage together with security present every evening.

“Searock is an excellent choice for a family staying in Umhlanga”

My wife and 19 year old daughter and I stayed in the Searock apartment for a week, and were v pleased all around. The owner/manager, Filip Engelen, and his wife Priscilla, are v considerate, attentive, responsive and very professional. The pricing is moderate and affordable. The apartment is a beautifully decorated and maintained three bedroom, with a reasonably well equipped kitchen, a large living and dining area, an expansive terrace, and a spectacular view of the Indian Ocean. WIFI is good. All appliances are quite young in age, the apartment comes with an individual locked garage space for a car. Someone comes to clean every other day, and is open for a modest price to do laundry. Security for the apartment building is quite reliable

A lovely walking path on the ocean begins at the base of the hill, and is either a short walk from the apartment or a short drive to a parking lot at the base of the trail.

Getting into the village is simple, by foot, by car, or by Uber. Oyster Box and Beverly Hills Hotel are both nearby, both have exceptional restaurants and great views. Be sure to make reservations in advance.

 The commute to downtown Durban is 15-20 minutes and easily navigated.

The commute to Shaka International Airport is a simple 15-20 minute drive.

"Lovely apartment”

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
