Great house, very friendly hosts, neighbors are great as well to support. Views are stunning. House is new with all comfortable items your are expecting. Swimming pool which can be used in the winter! Visit the beach.
It's a very relaxing place to stay. The house is very nice, the swimming pool is perfect!
We stayed with our family of 8 adults, and the accommodation is very suitable for this. We did find the second bathroom a bit small and the house is rather noisy. But because we were with our family, that was not a problem for us
It was wonderful to have Mokey's help!!
This luxurious villa is located in a quaint village, very close to the beach and some gorgeous scenery. We loved just relaxing by the beautiful pool which offers a breathtaking view. In fact, the villa and the garden are so comfortable that it's hard to resist the temptation to become very lazy! Within walking distance are a couple of good restaurants and the Spar has a good selection of food. We would thoroughly recommend this villa for families (the villa sleeps up to 10 people comfortably. Also, Erik is a great host and will make sure you are surrounded with all the right people during your stay to make to most of your time there.
Ongoye View Residence is incredibly beautiful. Looks exactly like the photos if not better.
It's perfectly situated close to the beach and the local Spar should you need it, but still feels as though you are tucked away in the Zululand hills.
Mokey, the house manager was great. Friendly, Witty and always on hand to assist. He was lovely.
Erik, owner, was also great. Friendly, patient and professional. He also made sure to check on is during our stay.
The one thing that should be noted if you take an all adult group is that the house is 4 bedrooms with bunk beds in the one room. With a healthy sense of adventure and fore warning this should not be a problem.
We are planning another trip to Mtunzini for a longer stay at Ongoye View. It was well worth it.
Absolutely LOVED Ongoye view residence!
This was the perfect setting for our family reunion long weekend.
From initial booking to check-in carried out by the lovely neighbour, Pie, everything ran smoothly and professionally.
Ongoye is a special place - situated in the heart of Zululand (real Africa!), with stunning scenery, yet only a stone's throw to the nearby gorgeous beach. The super large master suite + 3 decent sized bedrooms (master suite is extra large!) are all on the ground floor with the top floor being dedicated to an open plan kitchen. lounge and entertainment area to capitalise on the most majestic views.
The house is tastefully furnished and well equipped - although it may be worth mentioning that the fridge is a standard single fridge - so bring along a few cooler boxes if there's many of you or if you have a lot of food requiring refrigeration. Better yet, bring less and shop at the local SPAR shop which is very nearby.
Thank you to Erik, Pie, Jenny and Mokey for a lovely Family reunion getaway weekend with the family. We had an absolute ball and many laughs and made some lovely memories.
Our stay at this house in Mtunzini was absolutely wonderfull. It is a very beautiful clean house with lots of room. From the living room you have a wonderful view over the swimming pool and the horizon. The swimming pool and house were cleaned every day by a friendly house help. Also the neighbours were very helpful and could give you advises on what to visit.
To make a long story short, this is the ideal stay to relax and enjoy the calming environment.
The villa is located the small, laid-back coastal town of Mtunzini in Zululand, just an hour's drive from Durban international airport where the leisurely pace of life will guarantee a relaxing stay. The spacious north-facing villa (ideal orientation in the southern hemisphere) has stunning views across its large, inviting rim flow swimming pool towards the rolling Ngoye hills and surrounding sugar cane plantations, which offer breathtaking sunset views.
The fully-equipped house with its modern plantation-like design fused with African influences, has all you need in terms of modern comforts to guarantee a comfortable stay, while the friendly yet discreet house manager and neighbours go to great lengths to make you feel at home.
The village itself is full of little surprises and has all the amenities needed (well-stocked supermarket, liquor stores, characterful restaurants, art and craft shops, pubs where you can meet interesting locals, as well as doctors, churches, etc.) and most within walking distance.
So if you want to unwind in the comfort of a spacious characterful villa in a safe environment, enjoy the unspoiled Indian Ocean beaches, stunning nature and wildlife, this is the place for you and the whole family.
