Netherley Cottage

Hotel Road, Umhlali Beach, Dolphin Coast, South Africa

Discover the allure of this enchanting beachside retreat—a spacious four-bedroom cottage nestled in the heart of Salt Rock.

Embracing the timeless essence of traditional KwaZulu-Natal architecture, this home offers every essential for a perfect family holiday getaway.

Salt Rock Beach is the main beach of the little town of the same name, which is perched along the coast of KwaZulu-Natal. It is idyllic for its palm trees, white sand, and warm turquoise waters. And, thanks to its being protected by shark nets in the water and lifeguards on the beach, it is a fantastic choice for families and those that want to cool off in the temperate waters of the Dolphin Coast.

The town of Salt Rock is just north of the holiday hotspot of Ballito, about 45 minutes from the centre of Durban, and about 25 minutes from its international airport
