A perfectly located sea side studio apartment with beach views. 100m walking distance to the Sand Bar restaurant and 100m from the tidal pools, this spot is ideally situated. Watch the dolphins and whales playing in the waves from your fully equipped kitchen. This studio apartment has everything you need to make your beach side retreat comfy and enjoyable. Having been renovated recently, this lock-up-and-go flat is hassle free and in a secure complex. Looking forward to hosting you!

The space
The flat is an open plan studio apartment with a separate bathroom and shower. The view is what really makes the space special and is a real 'wow' factor upon entering the flat. There is an enclosed verandah with a sleeper couch for extra guests. The location is prime within 2 minute walking distance from the popular restaurants and family friendly tidal pool for snorkelling.

Guest access
King Shaka International Airport is an 8 minute drive away. There you can find a taxi and an Uber is always close by. There is a 24 hour security guard on site and a complex manager that can assist. You have shaded parking and there is space for visitors parking. There is also a braai area and a pool at the back. If you are an elderly person, or you think you may have trouble with stairs, please take this into account before booking. This flat is generally speaking not suitable for elderly people who battle with stairs and for people who have lots of heavy luggage. Personally, I don't think the stairs are an issue but some people have complained and they are mostly elderly/unfit. Its all worth it for the view. There is no elevator, but only a funicular, which my flat isn't really high enough to warrant using anyway. Hope this info helps!

Other things to note
No Pets. Be prepared for load shedding to take place nationwide just in case. The windows have some sun damage around the edge and are in the process of being replaced, pending approval from the Body Corporate.

There are stairs to get to this flat. People have complained in the past about them but they are usually elderly or unfit or unable to carry their luggage up from the car park.

I have an air cooler in the flat. This is different from an air conditioner. Air conditioners use a vast amount of power, are bad for the environment and cost a fortune to buy and run. Therefore, I have opted for an air cooler and a ceiling fan which I find keeps me nice and cool at night.

I love nature and being outside and appreciate a good view! I can't imagine life without music and enjoy playing guitar and piano when I have the chance. My work has taken me to some remote places of the world and I love sharing those stories with anyone wanting to hear them. I practice Pilates to keep fit when I'm busy and enjoy free diving and rock climbing.
