Cowrie Cove is genuinely luxurious. The rooms are big, spacious, clean, and everything you want. The sleep quality is great. Caroline has been so good to us, and our gratefulness for the extra-mile service she gave us cannot be expressed in words.

We had an excellent stay at Cowrie Cove in 2016 so we decided to revisit when in Umhlanga in February this year (2020). We had another superb visit. Same very high standards in every respect from Caroline and her team. Highly recommended.

Caroline is a wonderful hostess - welcoming but never intrusive. The room we had was more like a suite and was beautifully furnished. Great shower - bath a bit dangerous for someone like me - mature! Very deep with high sides and no handles - perhaps a bath mat could be helpful. After one bath I stuck to showers. A little more cupboard space would have been appreciated as well as slightly better pillows. But the great coffee always available - plus biscuits - was wonderful. Aircon also appreciated

Pleasantly surprised of this very beautiful location. A hidden gem. Caroline, the host, is super friendly, tips giving and supporting. Our room 12 was big with a big bed and bathroom which has an awesome shower. Breakfast area and staff is great. Pool and it surroundings give enough space for sunbathing. Direct access to beach via backyard door. Perfect.
