Dune View is a bright, open plan, self contained, upstairs cottage. It is perched up on a hill in Sodwana Bay in rural Zululand, with sweeping dune and lake views. It is 2kms from the main tar road on a single sandy track - although you don't need 4x4, a vehicle with higher clearance is recommended.

The space
Sodwana Bay is a scuba-diving, fishing and nature-lover’s paradise.

The cottage is upstairs with a gorgeous dune and lake view. The bright, open-plan space comprises has a king-size bed (we can provide twin beds instead, on request)

The bathroom has a shower & bath towels are provided. There is a lounge area with a SmartTV, Dstv compact & Netflix. The kitchenette is equipped with a fridge/freezer, microwave, 2-plate gas stove, kettle and toaster.

There is a large semi-covered deck off the cottage with patio furniture and a gas braai. The cottage is equipped with ceiling fans and air-conditioning for those hot summer days. The cottage is serviced every day on request (except Sundays & public holidays)

Guests can enjoy the local sights and sounds while sipping a sundowner on the deck - the distant lighthouse turning on Jesser Point, Nguni cattle being herded past, chickens roosting for the night, a local soccer game on the nearby field and an incredible night sky filled with stars.

There is another house on the property, but guests have their own electric gate and a private entrance. The whole property is secured with an electric fence. Although it is not far from town, the cottage is very rural and situated among the local homesteads & natural bush. There are dogs and chickens on the main property.

Please note that rural Sodwana Bay does often experience power cuts, this is unfortunately out of our control. In this case there will be no power or water and it is recommended that you enjoy the beautiful night sky or spend the evening at one of the nearby bigger lodges. We do have a backup generator that can be run for a few hours at a time to shower & charge up, but the aircon won't work.

The cottage is 2kms from the main road and the access road is a single sandy track - you don't need 4x4 but we dont recommend very low clearance cars.
