Wendy is a lovely hostess. The room was stulishly decorated with ample space. The kitchen is fully equipped and the attention to detail is great. The yoghurt and fruit for breakfast was great and a great gesture. I'll definitely be back.

We had a lovely stay at The Lazy Lizard. The hosts are both extremely friendly and accommodating. We would highly recommend The Lazy Lizard! It is extremely well positioned with the beach and Umhlanga village on your door step.

My boyfriend and I stayed there for a week in April 2015. Wendy's grace and hospitality made us feel right at home. Our room was spacious and clean. The braai place in the garden was just right for an intimate braai for two. We absolutely loved it and will definitely be sure to visit again... Thanks Wendy, for everything!!!!
