Guest's Feedback

Ntokozo was amazing. He took the stay from excellent to exceptional.

We had such a great experience, I don't want to write a review, I'd rather we keep it as the best kept secret! I'd highly recommend LCE and the Unity beach house. Beautiful views, and direct beach access. Short walk to Granny's pools for safe kids swimming. The house's style and finishings were excellent. And the housekeeper is phenomenal.

Seaclusion is paradise on earth - starting with the most amazing room fragrance as you step into the home, it is all designed to relax you and help you escape your daily life. With all 5 bedrooms having views of the sea, the beautiful sound of the sea as you go to sleep at night and the most gorgeous decor with 2 lovely ladies to help you, it truly was an amazing experience. We will definitely go back!

Sarah Crowe - stayed at Seaclusion, Colwyn Drive - July 2022

An exquisite house with the most beautiful setting with plenty of space. Well catered for and the most comfortable beds - even better than home from home! The housekeeping ladies were so hospitable and lovely.

Fantastic house! Can’t beat the location (ocean front with direct beach access), private pool, spacious home with four bedrooms (all with private bathrooms) as well as a separate in-law unit, well-stocked kitchen, and the list goes on. We absolutely loved our stay and will definitely book again on our next trip to the area.

We absolutely loved the house. Everything from the location (with beach access), separate living spaces so the adults could enjoy the rugby while the kids watched their shows to the layout of the house. My husband and I both were doing work calls from there, and it is hard to beat sitting on a call while looking out over the waves from the master suite. I just also specifically want to call out the fantastic service from the housekeeper, Yvonne. She was super proactive, checking that everything was in working order every day. For example, on one morning the WiFi was down, and knowing that some of us would need it for work, she proactively reached out to the property managers to report and get the issue resolved. On another day we had no hot water in the house, and she immediately replaced the gas (or something). I truly wish I could take her back to the US with us. I would also like to thank you for the thoughtful goody bag. The kids got into the treats before we could blink and the coffee was enjoyed by all of the adults. Finally, please let me know if you ever want to consider selling your house as we’d be very interested.

Great position on the beach, exceptional sea views, comfortable and clean with good quality crockery, oven and gas stove. Serviced every morning by Mamazibuko, who is helpful and does a load of washing daily. WiFi available. Some DStv channels were not available. Would come back. The gifts on arrival were much appreciated, thank you.

Ash & Ramesh - stayed at Seaclusion, 73 Colwyn Drive, July 2022

What a magic beach home. So beautifully decorated and comfortable with so many different seating areas. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds very comfy. Stunning views from the lounge and one bedroom. We spent all our time in the lounge/on the verandahs. It’s so central with just a short walk to the Salt Rock hotel for a curry or the lifesaving club for a coffee and ice cream We would absolutely love to stay here again.

Your staff member Nonhlanhla is a treasure. She took care of us and was available whenever we needed assistance. Thank you Nonhlanhla for your hospitality and Madeleine for prompt communication. I can’t fault this beautiful home away from home, spotless and very well-equipped with more than one entertainment area. Great beach location! Perfect for families with children or elderly. We really loved the welcome goodie bag, so thoughtful and adds that special touch. We loved it so much and hope to visit again! Thank you.

Cambelle is a beautiful home. Definitely ideal for a family break. The family really enjoyed its beauty and the easy access to the beach.

5 Star Beautiful upmarket apartment, Couldn’t have been better. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed and tastefully furnished. Friendly and professional staff, the location is great, with stunning views. I will certainly recommend and definitely return.

Sajil Singh - stayed at Aloe Point, Colwyn Drive - March 2022



First Light is a stunning weekend getaway where the owners had thought of everything you could possibly need when wanting to relax. We loved the attention to detail, lovely welcome pack and luxurious furnishings, that we just casual enough to make one feel right at home to put your feet up. Our guests & us had the best time relaxing & hours were spent in the tidal pools in front of the house. Would most definitely recommend this lovely home to family and friends and we also enjoyed the extra bonus of full power thanks to the solar panels!

Michelle Lake - stayed at First Light, 27 Llewelyn Drive - March 2022



We had a wonderful stay at the stunning 17 South Beach Road. A truly luxury experience with all the bells and whistles of an exclusive holiday home.

Aisha Khan - stayed at 17 South Beach, Umdloti - March 2022

It’s a beautiful home, perfect for a large family or two families sharing. There are plenty of areas for people to find their own bit of space and we never felt cramped. The kitchen is well equipped and the staff were efficient and discreet. A wonderful holiday destination.

Christine Du Toit - stayed at First Light, 27 Llewelyn Drive - March 2022


An exceptional venue. Will definitely book again. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The shopping service that Steph offers is incredibly helpful thank you.

Carolene - stayed at BeMnandi 43 Colwyn Drive - March 2022


Beautiful large family house, perfect place to relax and connect with friends and family. Beach access is incredible, the beach becomes your garden, don’t need to leave the house!

Kara - stayed at 27 Llewelyn Drive - Jan 2022



This lovely family home, is absolutely perfectly situated on a great swimming beach. Security is good, housekeeping excellent and the house is well equipped with all essentials (and more).

Samantha Hughes - stayed at 15 Little Maritzburg Road - Jan 2022



Everything was perfect - comfortable, spacious, clean & lots of amenities. Excellent, friendly staff. The perfect home for our family with young children, we have had a wonderful holiday in the Hill's beautiful home.

Jill Robbert - stayed at 14 Ladlau Drive, Jan 2022


Another rockstar holiday. We always use Luxury Coastal Estates and entrust Louise and Madeline in recommending an amazing holiday at the coast. Every year it never fails to wow and amaze. Going back to the rat race feeling recharged and focused. Thank you Louise for making our stay memorable every year. Chat soon for December. We would love to revisit this property

Minnie Smith - stayed at 2 Olive Lane, Simbithi Eco Estate - Jan 2022

Absolutely loved the house in every regard, it really made our holiday so special. I think the Simbithi Estate is fantastic, great amenities, played a lot of golf and found all the Estate Staff very friendly and efficient. The communication and efficiency of LCE was excellent throughout the booking. Will definitely be back !

Caroline Woollam - stayed at 3 Umkhuhla Close, Simbithi Eco Estate - Jan 2022

We loved our time in Feverberry! The house has the most wonderful holiday feel to it and is beautifully decorated and designed. The children had an absolute ball, from the pool to the ferry garden, wendy house and jungle gym - they were in their element. The entertainment areas are simply gorgeous, and the house is super spacious so everyone has ample room for quality R&R.

Kara Morland - stayed at 59 Feverberry Lane, Simbithi Eco Estate - Jan 2022

The house worked well for us. The wifi was great. We applaud the recycling. The space and the decorations worked really well. Thanks for leaving a few Christmas decorations. The watersports equipment was super and well maintained. The lagoon burst after about 6 days, so we saw both sides of lagoon life. There was still water in front of 49 for some days. We would recommend this house to our friends.

Lynn Dabbs - stayed at 49 Nkwazi Drive, Zinkwazi Beach - Jan 2022

Beautiful properties with excellent service all round making your holiday an absolute pleasure - thank you LCE

Vanessa Malahay - stayed at 15 The Amphitheatre, Simbithi Eco Estate - Jan 2022

Great accommodation, Pat was a great host and we had a wonderful stay.

Tanya - stayed at 3 Puzzlebush Lane, Simbithi Eco Estate - Jan 2022



We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 4 Umvumvu in Simbithi. The home is really comfortable and well equip. Simbithi is a beautiful estate - with access to so much - restaurants, bars, jungle gyms, pools and amazing walking trails. Loved having the golf cart as we could get lots of golf games in during our stay.

The LCE team are extremely professional - I highly recommend booking your holiday through them. Thank you all.

Anita - stayed at 4 Umvumvu Drive, Simbithi Eco Estate - Jan 2022

Pleasure arranging the accommodation through you. Lived up to expectations.

Itumeleng Kgaboesele - stayed at 18 Elm Tree Place, Simbithi Eco Estate - Jan 2022

Really great experience with LCE, efficient, responsive and great houses.

Sean Berrington - stayed at 16 Colwyn Drive, Sheffield Beach - Jan 2022

The house is absolutely magic. The name of the property is Tranquil, and that is exactly what this house is. The zen garden, forest feel creates an unbelievable space to relax and refresh. There is so much space for everyone from the cinema room to the pool, the study or the golf cart. Azile was cleaning the house every day and just being such a kind and welcoming host. She really went the extra mile to make sure we can have a good rest in the house. Madelain was an excellent agent and we will definitely book again with Luxury Coastel Escapes. One of our favorite holiday destinations yet!

Peter - stayed at 10 Jackal Berry Lane, Simbithi Eco Estate - Jan 2022

Yet another amazing rental through our trusted coastal agency! Perfectly curated and best service.

Always a pleasure dealing with LCE, best holidays

Angela Ferguson - stayed at 14 Ladlau Drive, Simbithi Eco Estate - Dec 2021

Great location of Simbithi estate. Close proximity to shops, great restaurants and the beach. It is our 2nd time in the estate and we love it!! We really enjoyed the layout of the house, spacious but still very cosy. We also really enjoyed the patio, pool and garden. Made regular use of the coffee machine for much needed morning coffees. House is impeccably clean which is also a big draw card.

Mandy O'Flaherty - stayed at 15 The Amphitheatre, Simbithi Eco Estate - Dec 2021

Fantastic stay and ideal for our family. Everything was arrange and catered for and there was such an ease to our holiday. Yvonne, executive housekeeper, was truly exceptional and nothing was too much trouble!

Sean Clark - stayed at 15 Little Maritzburg, Salt Rock - Nov 2021



The house was perfect. It's very clean. Very impressed that it has a washing machine and tumble dryer. It's a beautiful house and will stay there again.

Lilly - stayed at 15 Little Maritzburg, Salt Rock - Nov 2021

The domestic ladies went so out of their way for us. They made it extra special. This is a lovely beach home with everything you could possibly need. Domestic ladies on site really spoiled us so much. It's a home where you can really just come to and relax.

Jasmin - stayed at 19 Little Maritzburg Road, Salt Rock - Nov 2021



Stunning home. Very good Housekeepers and attention to detail. Great Location.

Carla Janse Van Rensburg - stayed at Salty Sands, 24 Hewitt Drive, Salt Rock - Nov 2021

Beautiful home, great for adults and couples looking for some downtime. Convenient location and very private and peaceful - just not as toddler friendly as we would have liked out of fear of breaking things. But still an awesome stay for us. Thank you. 

Mbali - stayed at 17 South Beach Road, Umdloti - Oct 2021

My stay was perfect would definitely love to have more options on homes we can book for a weekend as to having such a hectic work schedules. Bookings were professional and all details were explained comprehensively. Such a beautiful house with beautiful scenery you are truly blessed. Having housekeeping staff is also so convenient on keeping the home clean especially because it is someone’s home. Thank you so much for the beautiful experience.

Gugulethu - stayed at 3 Les Dauphine, Ocean Drive, Shaka's Rock - Oct 2021

Our family enjoyed an incredible stay at 18 on Hewitt. We would highly recommend this house. We cannot wait to come back!

Saul Weiner - stayed at 18 Hewitt Drive, Salt Rock - Oct 2021


The home is Perfectly Located without having to deal with large amounts of traffic.  The Property is kept spotlessly clean considering it’s on the beach.  General wear on the home is minimal for being constantly exposed to the sea elements.  Very quiet and comfortable accommodations!  We will absolutely book again!!!  A+++ 2 Thumbs Up!!

Hunter - stayed at Netherley Cottage, Salt Rock - Sept 2021


Beautiful home, a stunning location, helpful staff, definitely worth a visit.

Ronelle Naidoo - stayed at 31 Colwyn Drive, Sheffield Beach - Sept 2021



“Wow ! What a lovely holiday home. This holiday home has everything that makes you feel really comfortable and content. The sea is right on your door step and the view is amazing. Thank-you! to the owner's and Yvonne for making this a memorable holiday. I will definitely book again. The holiday home is truly well run. It is really a home away from home. The home is very well run. I will recommend this holiday home to anybody looking for a awesome beach holiday. Regards

Cecil Long - stayed at 15 Little Maritzburg Road, Salt Rock - Sept 2021



What an amazing place! House is in immaculate condition! Kitchen is so well stocked with every tool you could need. The beds were so comfy. Really felt like luxury all the way. And the view! My gosh! Lovely family home right on the beach. Pool is safe with a cover so we had a worry free stay with the kids! Beautiful home!

Ashina  Buddu - stayed at 15 Little Maritzburg Road, Salt Rock - Sept 2021


Aloe Point provided a great venue to celebrate our mother's 70th birthday together. The large downstairs bedroom accommodated all the grand children, while siblings and partners appreciated their own en-suite rooms. With the help of Barton, the house butler, planning and preparing for meals was a breeze. Close proximity to the beach and rock pools kept the kids busy for hours on end.

Morne Nel - stayed at Aloe Point, 59 Colwyn Drive, Sheffield - Sept 2021



The House is so beautiful and so spacious. The view and position is perfect... we really felt immersed in beach life!

Georgia Manelis - stayed at 18 on Hewitt, Salt Rock - Aug 2021



We thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous house, the amazing views, even with Natal dishing up some rather chilly weather. The house was superb in all weather conditions. The staff at the home couldn’t be more organized, friendly and helpful.. we really enjoyed a stunning relaxing week.

Liezel Emslie - stayed at Aloe Point, 59 Colwyn Drive, Sheffield - Aug 2021

Spectacular views from a beautiful guest house. Ideal for a family getaway.

Ryan Ramdass - stayed at BeMnandi 43 Colwyn Drive, Sheffield Beach - July 2021



The house was amazing. The setting sublime. The house is simply perfect to my mind and really wouldn't change a thing. I would book this again and we are already looking for the October week holidays.

Beckley - stayed at 17 South Beach Road, Umdloti - May 2021



Very beautiful home and a great location right on the beach. Owners were very helpful and responded quickly to all problems. We had an amazing time and will definitely be back! The monkeys were a bit too comfortable and entered the house even when we were there. So we needed to keep kitchen doors closed and be extra vigilant or they’d come into to kitchen and take fruit and any food on counters. It would be helpful to let people know this in advance so they keep the kitchen closed when no one is in it even when people are in other living areas. 

Jacqui Ramage - stayed at  31 Colwyn Drive, Sheffield Beah -  April 2021



Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the open-plan bedroom/bathroom, but that’s just my opinion. The home is stunning, and the location is exceptional. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

Nishal Chiba - stayed at Kingfisher Cove, Umdloti  - April 2021



The house was great and will definitely rent it again. Superb location with beautiful views and lots of space, comfy couches and beds.

Perfect place to stay under the lockdown restrictions .. and would want to stay again 

Brian Jensen - stayed at  14 Ladlaue Drive, Simbithi Eco Estate - January 2021



We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Umvumvu Drive. The location is great and it is one of the best houses in Simbithi in my view. We spent plenty of time ‘at home’ and everyone enjoyed it. 

The process followed by Luxury Coastal Escapes upfront in getting the ID’s and vetting everything was painful at the time but absolutely necessary if it was going to be my house being rented out. I would have no hesitation using you again. 

R Pollock - stayed at 55 Umvumvu Drive, Simbithi Eco Estate - December 2020



Lovely stay at Near House in Shakas Rock. Martha is amazing and so helpful. The house has everything you need for a comfortable family holiday. Excellent sea views with morning dolphin viewings.

Nikki Rebello - Stayed at 15 Amphitheatre, Simbithi Eco Estate - February 2019



The house was lovely and we had a great holiday.  Ellen and Martha are really fantastic and made us feel so at home, and were very helpful.  We would definitely use Luxury Coastal Escapes again and would recommend it to friends and family. 

B. Liguori - Stayed at 14 Ladlaue Drive, Simbithi Eco Estate - December 2019



We stayed at 31 Colwyn Drive for a weekend in July. It is a dream location and property. The photos on the website are amazing but the reality is even better. Great service provided by Louise, Madelaine and the rest of the team. Thank you!

Bert Graadt Van Roggen - stayed at 31 Colwyn Drive, Sheffield Beach - July 2018



We had a fantastic experience with Luxury Coastal Escapes! They were very helpful and eager to assist from the get go! Madeline checked us in and had a lovely gift bag for us.
We stayed at Colwyn Drive, Sheffield Beach and it was truly amazing. Perfect for a family get away. All the rooms have magnificent sea views and it was such a pleasure walking down to the beach with our kids.We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return or try one of the other holiday homes on their list! Thanks for great service and great hospitality!

Thanks to all of them for a pleasant holiday!

"We had a great time at Simbithi. Your service was very professional and we loved the home we stayed in.  The housekeeper Zanele was also a delightful lady. I will certainly be recommending you (I have already done so) and if we holiday in the area again we will certainly be in contact with you"

S Morland - stayed in Ironwood Way, Simbithi Eco Estate - Dec 2016



Compliments of the season to your family and you at Luxury Coastal Escapes. I would like to thank you once again for a wonderful stay.  We really did appreciate all the help and welcoming at Simbithi the day of arrival. We would definitely recommend all our family and friends to make use of your professional services. 

L van Greunen - stayed in Ironwood Way, Simbithi Eco Estate - Dec 2016



"Thank you so much, the stay was beautiful. The estate is such a peaceful calming place it didn't even feel like we were in Durban amongst the hustle and bustle of holiday goers. 

The place it self although really beautiful lacked with the following. Not all the rooms had side tables on both sides. The rooms do need mirrors and a table to do hair I know we are on holiday but still need to look somewhat presentable. Lol. The exceptional service we have received from Luxury Coastal Estates was without a doubt nothing short of incredible. Kari is amazing and I thank her for giving such exceptional service. 

K Simpson - stayed in Strelitzia Place, Simbithi Eco Estate - Dec 2016



"Yes I would definitely use Luxury Coastal Escapes again and recommend to family and friends"

D Bakker - stayed in Springwood, Umhlali Golf Estate



We all had a fantastic week at Simbithi and would recommend this place
