Charming Cottage By the Sea

Stunning beach
1 of 15Stunning beach
Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 3
Blythedale Beach, KwaZulu-Natal
The Nautical Unit is a charming seaside cottage with a private courtyard. Only 50 metres from the beach, a narrow strip of protected indigenous bush is all that separates you from the warm sun kissed beaches of the Indian Ocean.
Our property is situated on the beach, with only a narrow strip of indigenous forest separating the beach from the property. The cottage does not have a sea-view but there is a 20m path through indigenous forest directly to the beach. The beaches are unspoiled and off the beaten track so you are likely to have them to yourself. Expect spectacular sunsets with dolphins and porpoises on the horizon. The cottage has one bedroom with a double bed (can be changed to two single beds), a full kitchen, bathroom with shower and lounge with a double sleeper couch. It can accommodate up to 4 guests.

About the neighbourhood
Blythedale Beach is situated 50 minutes north of Durban on the Dolphin Coast. It has excellent beaches on virgin coastline with a wide variety of flora and fauna. Large pods of dolphins regularly swim past and whales visit between July and November. There is a lagoon within walking distance, which falls within the Umvoti river conservancy, this means its abundant bird life, picturesque setting and incredible sunsets are all protected. Blythedale was voted as the best managed coastline in Natal 2 years in a row. Fishing, musseling and crayfishing are all possible with the appropriate licenses. Excellent shopping and dining is available in Ballito (25 minutes to the South) and Gateway Mall (45 minutes to the south). Kwa-Dukuza, site of the Sh
