  2. Excellent property ; great owners

    With inspiring views of the Indian Ocean and the shipping waiting on going into the Port of Durban, these are modern attractive apartments, with some very personable, and helpful owners who live on the ground floor. This is a very upmarket residence in an extremely quiet, and equally prestigious area. Great facilities here, very safe environment, and about1.25 miles from the nightlife, and restaurant area in the centre of Umhlanga Rocks. Our apartment had every thing that you could wish for; premium bedding, very comfortable bed, spacious bathroom with separate bath and shower cubicle, all sectioned off from the bedroom. The kitchen is well equipped and there is very welcome air con and satellite television. We were so impressed with the property, and it was great chatting to the owners who helped make our stay.

  3. Relaxing winter break

    We arrived full of apprehension as our calls to Seashells had gone unconnected, (Vodacom mobile service is terrible on Forest Drive) but a buzz on the intercom saw a smiling Fillip and Priscilla waving from the balcony, and we were soon helped with all our luggage into our apartment. We found the apartment to be clean, spacious, and comfortable, and complete with WiFi and cable TV. The kitchen facilities are minimal, but adequate for our breakfast and snacking needs, but think again if you plan a full roast dinner. The maid service was great, we’re clean but untidy, so everything was tidied up and the apartment cleaned every 3 days. The view from the full balcony was to die for the Indian Ocean crashed on to the beach just a few hundred metres away with just a couple of palm trees to block the view, you share a pool with the ground floor apartment, but as it was winter and just 24° c we didn’t have a dip in the lovely pool. Would we go back – yes without a doubt, were the owners warm, friendly, and helpful – yes and without being in your face. Would we tell all our friends – No way we want it available to book when we want to go back, and we hope that will be soon.

  4. Wonderful Place

    Wonderful Place. Owners were extremely helpful and helped with the move in. They really made me and my friends feel at home. Facilitates are great and the location of the apartment is perfect.
    I would recommend Seashelles to anyone looking for a place to stay in Umhlanga, this place ticks all the boxes.
    Thank you Priscilla and Filip for the lovely service !

  5. Little Piece of Heaven

    Since we discovered this little piece of heaven some 12 years ago, we have come back to spend up to 2 months every January / March, and hope to continue this practice, for the foreseeable future.
    Both Filip and Priscilla have from our first visit, done everything to make each year more special.
    Our location, though a short distance from the ” village ” of uMhlanga, is quiet and situated amidst the hi- end of the residential area.
    The exclusive use of the family’s pool is very welcome on those hot February days.
    Both John and myself could not recommend ” Seashelles ” more highly.
    Some 7 years ago, 2 of our sons came to visit us, and still talk about their holiday, hoping to bring their now wives and children to meet the Engelen family.

  6. Seashells is well located

    Seashells is well located in a quiet part of Umhlanga with a very nice (close) view of the ocean. Our appartment was perfect for a 4 weeks stay; well equipped with everything you would look for. The atmosphere feels good.
    Most important are Priscilla and Filip, they made us feel very welcome and were extremely helpfull when needed.
    When we will visit Umhlanga again there will be no question about where to stay!

  7. Warm Welcome

    We were warmly welcomed when we arrived, and the hosts even helped us up the stairs with our suitcases. The apartment is spacious and ample for 2-3 people. There is daily maid service. We enjoyed eating on the terrace looking out at and hearing the sea.

    For the past 8 years, we have taken this apt for up to 6 weeks, late January to mid march, we love every aspect of both the area and the climate. tho many would prefer to visit in cooler months. Our hosts manage to combine friendliness with professionalism.

  11. Schön eingerichtet

    Schön eingerichtet, tolle Mitarbeiter, traumhafte Aussicht auf das Meer, sehr sauber, ideale Lage unweit vom Zentrum von Umhlanga, wo es mehrere sehr gute Restaurants gibt und auch mehrere Supermärkte. Die Gastgeber Priscilla und Philippe sind äusserst nett und hilfsbereit. Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl und werden ganz sicher wieder zurückkehren. Beautifully furnished, great staff, wonderful views of the sea, very clean, conveniently located close to the center of Umhlanga, where there are several very good restaurants and several supermarkets. The hosts Priscilla and Philippe are very nice and helpful. We felt very comfortable and will go back again for sure.

  12. Magnificent

    Spent four nights in this magnificent setting and wonderful apartment which was perfect for two people. Wished we had booked more nights and will definitely return if we are back in Umhlanga! Our hosts were so so friendly and helpful. The apartment was clean and serviced daily. Secure safe environment with views to die for and the sound of the surf to fall asleep to. Easy drive to Umhlanga village and the nicely manageable in size La Lucia shopping mall. Only 15 minutes from King Shaka airport (ignore directions on website, they refer to the old Durban airport). Simply stunning!

  14. an amazing holiday in Africa

    Dear Priscilla,
    Back in the UK after a wonderful holiday, lots of photos to remind us of your country and memories to share with friends. We completed our stay with a spell at Champagne Castle where we were able to attend a performance by the Drakensberg boys choir (an unexpected bonus) Alan joins me in sending our thanks for your contribution in making this such a memorable occasion with your willingness to help organize our tours. Many thanks also to Filip for the airport pickup. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Seashelles and thought Umhlanga was a good choice being ideally positioned for safety and tranquility. I have given feedback to the booking company so I hope you have a successful season once the winter months are over. Best regards to you both
