  4. Fantastic view

    My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Seashells. It is situated close to the beach, shops and restaurants just a 5 minute drive. The view is fantastic and the unit is very comfortable and functional. Thanks so much to Priscilla and Fillip who were wonderful hosts.

  5. Fantastic place to have a holiday

  6. Complete Home from Home" with wonderful hosts

    Just back from a wonderful 3 week stay at Seashelles. Priscilla and Phil were the most welcoming hosts who went above and beyond to make our holiday complete. We were looking for a comfortable and modern base whilst visiting our son who lives in Umhlanga and we found it with a lot more besides. To wake each morning with those stunning views of the Indian Ocean was awesome and the location was perfect for both coastal walks and the local village where you’ll find a multitude of good restaurants. The added bonus was the huge patio and pool when relaxing…and my husband was a happy bunny with his full DSTV AND FREE WIFI. A special mention also to our maid who kept our apartment pristine. Thank you Priscilla and Phil for everything, it was a pleasure to meet you and we shall certainly be back next time we visit South Africa

  8. Beautiful Place with Amazing Hosts

    I booked for 2 nights for our honeymoon and wanted the accommodation to be perfect…I had never been there before and wasn’t sure what to expect but when we got there…WOW!! We wished we could have stayed there longer! The place was modern, clean, safe and quiet with awesome views and had all the facilities we needed. Looking out over the pool with the palm trees felt like we were in Mauritius. It was so relaxing and our hosts Filip and Pricilla couldn’t have been nicer people and went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. They are warm and friendly people and we left feeling like we had made 2 new friends. I would definitely recommend Seashelles and would return in a heartbeat. Two thumbs up!!

  9. A gem of a place

    This was my eighth year to stay at Seashelles and it continues to delight. The welcome and the attention to detail of the hosts are second to none. Waking up to look out at the sea as if on an ocean liner is fabulous. The accommodation is spacious, airy and very comfortable and the neighborhood quiet. It is a ten minute walk to the start of the 2.3k esplanade along the sea front of Umhlanga which is a marvelous amenity.

  10. A wonderful holiday

    Hi Prisclla,
    I am back at work after a wonderful holiday at your place. I loved every minute of our stay there, it honestly felt like I was staying in some paradise island especially at night with the palm trees and the lights around the pool. The sea view is stunning and was just the cherry on top. Both yourself and your family were wonderful hosts and really provided us with total privacy but yet making yourselves available for whatever we needed. I told you before I left that it is by far the best place I have stayed so far and that it really felt like a home away from home. Your cleaner ladies also deserve a hands up as the flat was always clean and fresh towels available and they were very professional and kind.
    I really wish I was still there !!!!! Thank you once again for a fabulous holiday!!!!
