“Excellent Apartment”
Reviewed 26 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The apartment itself is perfect. It offers a lot of space, has tasteful furnishings and offers everything you need even for a longer stay (e.g. laundromat and dryer). Secure covered parking. Supermarket literally at your doorsteps. Three minutes walk to the beach. Check in was easy. Hermans was a very friendly host who explained us everything very well. The only thing I did not like is that they gave us a long list with "don'ts". Umlangha Rocks is a bit special. It reminded us to some places at the spanish Costa del Sol (high-rise buildings, cheap restaurants, exclusively for retired people and tourists.

“A tasteful oasis in the centre of things”
Reviewed 11 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

A fabulous apartment, tasteful, comfortable and in a great location for the beach, restaurants bars and shops, yet a quiet haven. Spotlessly clean with a daily lady who cleans. All the amenities of home. Will never forget sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean one evening, with a dramatic electric storm in full throes! Definitely hope to visit again.

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful review with regards to your recent stay at 506 Lighthouse Mall. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us!

One of the many great reasons that 506 Lighthouse Mall is a perfect retreat is due to it's location. All the restaurants, bars and supermarkets on your doorstep, but with none of the noise of the hustle and bustle. Your description of the view and being able to watch a dramatic electric storm really amplifies the reality of how stunning the apartment and it's view really is.

I have also passed your comments on to the housekeeper, and she was thrilled that you found the apartment spotlessly clean. She takes her job very seriously and your comments made her day!

We also hope that you are able to visit us again! You are always welcome at 506 Lighthouse Mall.

Kind regards,
Jono, Hermanna and the team at 506 Lighthouse Mall

“Beautiful apartment”
Reviewed 3 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We loved our stay at the Lighthouse Mall apartment! The space is gorgeous and very tastefully decorated. The apartment has absolutely everything you need for a self sufficient stay. The kitchen was fully equipped and the daily housekeeping was faultless. Very handy having a supermarket downstairs and an array of trendy resturants and cool breakfast spots in the same building/ literally across the road. The apartment is very secure with great underground parking. I honestly don't have a bad thing to say about pur experience and would very highly reccomend the apartment.

What a fantastic review! Thank you so much! It was an absolute pleasure hosting you both in 506 Lighthouse Mall.

We have thought of everything when it comes to our apartments as we don't want our guests to be without a necessary appliance, furnishing or necessity, like the FREE high speed, uncapped Wi-Fi. Only the best will do for you!

I have passed on your comments regarding the housekeeping to the housekeeper , Precious, and she was beaming with pride. She really takes her job seriously and was really chuffed when I read her this review.

The location of 506 Lighthouse Mall is absolutely perfect as all the popular restaurants, bars and supermarkets in Umhlanga on the ground floor of the building! The beach is a mere 200m walk from the apartment as well.

Thank you so much for staying with us in 506 Lighthouse Mall, and if you are ever in Umhlanga again, we would love to have you back!

Kindest regards,
Jono, Hermann and the team at 506 Lighthouse Mall

“Delightful comfortable stay”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Our trip started with great service from Herman who was so helpful and efficient sorting out our bookings and queries .
We arrived on Saturday evening and was met by Jono whom was so pleasant and ran us through the ins and outs of the apartment.
The open planned apartment was beautifully and elegantly decorated, the kitchen was well equipped with great modern appliances and every utensil you would need.
The lounge was wonderfully comfortable with a comfy couch and off the lounge through large sliding doors was a small patio area with lovely sea views and a practical patio suite where you could have breakfast and take in the beautiful view and breath the fresh crisp sea air.
Down a passage you were lead to two separate bedrooms with great comfortable beds, fresh crisp white linen and the most comfortable pillows we have had in a long time. Both bedrooms have good natural light and sliding doors that open again with an awesome sea view so special to wake up to in the morning.
The two bathrooms are fresh and clean one has a shower only and the other has a bath with an overhead shower.
The apartment is equipped with wifi that is quick so really great to have to keep in touch with family at home.
506 is brilliantly located as you head down the lift you arrive on the ground floor with the pick n pay supermarket right there to get what you need and then you are right on the main Chartwell road with all the great coffee houses and restaurants. A short walk up the hill leads you to the Umhlanga centre.
+\_ 200 meters you are on the beach and walking promenade you could not ask for a better location.
As a whole this was a great apartment and our stay was awesome and am certain we will be returning.
We can only thank everyone involved with this apartment for making our stay fantastic.

Wow, what a review! We are glowing with pride! We are so glad you loved 506 Lighthouse Mall so much that you chose to write such a wonderful, detailed review! It was such a pleasure hosting the 3 of you!

We are very proud of our apartments, and we never compromise on quality. We source only high end furnishings and appliances. Only the best will do for you!

The view is spectacular, isn't it? It would be a shame to only have the view in the lounge area. Both bedrooms and the lounge have the same stunning sea views. Whales have been spotted around Umhlanga's coastline in the past few weeks, and 506 Lighthouse Mall would be a perfect viewing spot!

As you rightly say, the location of 506 Lighthouse Mall is absolutely perfect as you have all the popular restaurants, bars and supermarkets on the ground floor of the same building! No need to use you car at all as the beach is also roughly 200m from the apartment.

The FREE uncapped, high speed Wi-Fi is just one less thing for you to worry about. It is a necessity these days, and we don't believe that you should be without it!

We hope that you are indeed able to return as it would be an absolute pleasure to welcome you back to 506 Lighthouse Mall.

Kind Regards,
Jono, Hermann and the team at 506 Lighthouse Mall

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us this fantastic review!

We are really chuffed that you couldn't find fault. We do our utmost to ensure that you are comfortable and feel at home. 506 Lighthouse Mall is so convenient with the supermarkets, restaurants and bars all on the ground floor. No car necessary and absolutely no noise from the hustle and bustle below. This is a huge draw card in this apartment. The beach is roughly 200 meters from the apartment, and takes only a few minutes on foot.

We do hope you intend on visiting us again. We would love to have you!

Thank you so very much for this amazing review! We are so delighted that you loved the apartment. We loved having you stay in the apartment!

The location of 506 Lighthouse Mall is a big draw card. Supermarkets, restaurants and bars are all in the same complex, with no noise! No need for a car, and as you rightly say - stunning sea views with all the amenities one could need in an apartment! The high speed, uncapped Wi-Fi is a necessity these days, and we ensure that it is always available. The attention to detail is what sets us apart from the rest, and we are so pleased that you noticed!

I have passed on your comments to the housekeeper (Precious), and her day was made! She takes pride in her work and was ever so grateful that she got a special mention.

It would be a pleasure to have you stay with us again. You are welcome any time.

Kindest regards,
