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.

Super ausgestattet an ruhiger Lage
Wir waren während des Comrades Marathon im Seashelles Appartement. Die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Wohn- und Schlafbereich geschmackvoll gestaltet, die Küche beinhaltet alles Notwendige. Der Aussenbereich mit Pool ist sehr schön und der Meerblick bereits vom Bett aus lässt sofort Urlaubsstimmung aufkommen. Alles sehr gepflegt und sauber. Der Kühlschrank war zu unserer Überraschung schon mit Fruchtsaft und Mineralwasser ausgestattet. Das Badezimmer aussergewöhnlich gross und mit Badewanne und Dusche super eingerichtet. Sehr gute, ruhige Lage. Zugang zum Strand ca. 400m. Das Zentrum mit vielen sehr guten Restaurants, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, der Leuchtturm mit der Promenade ist 1,2km entfernt, gut mit Uber oder auch zu Fuss zu erreichen.

Great view with comfortable lodgings
My family enjoyed our stay at the Seashelles. The apartment was very comfortable, clean and has a great view of the sea. It is well located with easy access to the beach, restaurants and malls. However, the lower unit is a little less private than the upper one and unfortunately the jacuzzi was not working. Nevertheless,Priscilla and Phillip were both very hospitable and professional making our stay comfortable. Clean towels and sheets were made available through out the stay and additional effort was kindly given with laundry for my 4 month old.

"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 😀

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!!

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 neighbourhood quiet. It is a ten minute walk to the start of the 2.3k esplanade along the sea front of Umhlanga which is a marvellous amenity.

Perfect for 2 friends
This apartment has a double bed and a very comfortable sleeper couch, even for a adult. Great ocean views and very quaint and cozy. Full dstv - what a bonus for rainy days, and a dvd player. It might get noisy in peak season as the pool and jacuzzi are right in front of the apartment. Luckily we went at a quiet time and it was perfect with everything so close by - pity the jacuzzi did not work. Priscilla was very friendly and helpful even though we arrived very late at night! Walking distance from beach, and shopping centre close by. Steep incline to the parking, drivers beware. No problems with wi-fi. As with the rest of the country we were also affected by the electricity problems and was without power for half a day.

Bliss by the seaside
If you are looking for more than just accommodation, Seashelles is the perfect place for you. My partner and I spent a week there in late October, and it was absolute bliss. We had hoped to get the bigger flat upstairs, which was unfortunately booked already, but rather than even looking somewhere else we settled for the smaller flat on the ground floor. It was just beautiful: fully furnished, equipped with all a self-catering traveller could possibly wish for, and tastefully decorated and set-up (well, when you meet hosts Priscilla and Philippe you know why the flat looks so lovely). The view from the patio over the Jacuzzi and pool into the sea is absolutely stunning, even on a grey day - but especially at night when illuminated in a stunning sea of lights. Besides TV and Wi-Fi internet, the presence of a charming maid was a winner - cleaning is not really cool during holidays. Staying in one big anonymous skyscraper complex in Umhlanga was never an option for us - we wanted a home away from home and Priscilla, Philippe and little dog Sparky certainly made sure we got exactly that as Seashelles is very private, quiet and exquisite (oh, and by the way, only a short walk from the beach). A special thanks to Priscilla for going out of her way after I had forgotten something rather important upon departure – much appreciated, my Dear! We wish we could have stayed longer – and we will definitely be back!
