“Awesome Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014

The rooms are fantastic, hosts make me feel at home, sometimes I get too comfy and forget I need to go to work. There is a selection of breakfasts which are all superb and freshly prepared to your liking at the time you prefer. For family holiday's or business trips I would most definately recommend Crooked Tree.

Crooked Tree Cottage was a pleasant experience, rooms are kept neat and clean, service is great, gives you a homey feeling. Its central to everything, very close to the beach and malls and easy access to highways. What i liked best is having easy access to all surrounding thats needed, the people are so down to earth pleasant to converse with and very helpful. I got recommened to Crooked Tree Cottage by a friend of mine he had the same great experience. I dont regret going there, would be my first choice on my next trip to Umhlanga. Thank You

I will certainly go back. The room was beautifully furnished, had a sea view and is located near Gateway shopping center. Hostess was friendly and accomodating even when we booked on short notice. You can even watch dvds in rainy weather.

Very nice accomodation and very lovely hosts. You get more that you pay for...
I had a perfect room with view to the seaside. Interesting was to keep the windows closed that no monkeys can get into your room. This is Africa....

I had a great stay at Crooked Tree Cottage - the room was small but very comfortable and there is a living room available for sprawling. Helen and her husband are very friendly and very accommodating.

Not the typical person that takes the time to do these surveys, my overall experience and quality of my visit can be summed up in few words,,,, Excellent, clean and extremely friendly couple that run this place, location was fantastic with only a 15 minute walk to town and the beach.
