A beautiful and spacious apartment that was also homely and even nicer than the pictures.

Perfect spot with amazing views right in the heart of Umhlanga with easy walking access to the promenade and ample shops and restaurants. The whole experience was great and I would stay again without hesitation.

Great escape from the UK winter with good choice of places to eat. Oyster Box hotel is within the grounds so treat yourself otherwise restaurants nearby are plentiful. Made use of beach, pool, Croc farm and Sharks home game and relax :)

Absolutely fantastic! Best view of the ocean, walking distance to everything we needed and in a very secure complex. Bed was amazingly comfy and the added surprise was the place was serviced every day. All perfect and was hard to leave.

Absolutely beautiful. The space was spectacular. Views, comfort, communication and proximity to shops and restaurants. Will definitely be returning. Thank you so much!!

We enjoyed our stay at 801 Oysters Schelles. The house is beautiful and spacious. Hermann was helpful and quick to respond to our questions. My parents and I miss the ocean view already.

“Hi Jack & Hermann thank you for the lovely accommodation. Everything went well.”

This is the most beautiful, serene view of the ocean. If relaxation and tranquility is what you wish for, look no further. You don’t need to rent a car as this place is close to all amenities and is in the center of Umhlanga yet secluded enough to provide the calm and peace you need in a residence. I recommend this place unreservedly.
“Thank you for a memorable stay! Pictures can never capture the beauty of this place, the roar of the ocean, the whisper of the evening tide. Such tranquility... My boys are calling for an anchor soonest. 🙏🏿”

Simple the best !
Liked everything about the apartment, location and breath taking sea view. The apartment is beautifully decorated. I have stayed in several accommodation but so far this is the best. Liked the basement car garage. Short walking distance to the shops and beach.

Sehr schönes modernes Apartment mit einem tollen Blick über das Meer. Sehr gut ausgestattet und großzügig. Schlüsselübergabe völlig unkompliziert mit sehr netten Vermieter. Kurzer Weg zu guten Restaurants - probiert Butcher Boys Restaurant - u Supermarkt. Ausflug zum Aquarium ist für Familien mit Kindern zu empfehlen, ca 20 Min entfernt



Ons sal graag weer in Oyster Schelles wil bly. Die ligging is perfek en die uitsig vanaf ons woonstel is asemrowend. Dit was 'n wonderlike vakansie.
Dankie aan Hermann vir sy vriendelike diens en ondersteuning.

Very nice modern Apartment with a great view over the sea. Very well equipped and spacious. Key handover completely uncomplicated with a very nice landlord. Short walk to good restaurants - try Butcher Boys Restaurant - and supermarket. Excursion to the aquarium is recommended for families with children, about 20 minutes away
