If you are looking for Umhlanga Accommodation, Crooked Tree Cottage is a lovely Bed and Breakfast/Self Catering accommodation establishment set in the heart of Umhlanga Durban, Kwazulu Natal, a premier holiday accommodation/tourist hot spot in South Africa.  It is a stones throw from Umhlanga Village with its gorgeous beaches.  Gateway Theatre of shopping is a 2 min drive away and Durban CBD and ICC are about 15 minutes drive.  Umhlanga New Town Centre and the La Lucia Ridge/Ridgeside office parks are on our doorstep.  It is close to both the M4 and the N2 highways making access to Durban and the rest of KZN extremely efficient.  This makes it an ideal accommodation venue for both Holidaymakers and Business people alike.

Crooked Tree Cottage is aptly named for the indigenous tree that drapes over the cottage as well as other parts of the garden.  These trees are ideal for the humid subtropical climate of coastal Kwazulu Natal as they provide a restful cooling shade on our hot sunny summer days and lose their leaves in the winter making the view even more spectacular.  The sea views from the balconies are magnificent and the bird life is amazing to watch.  Vervet monkeys are almost daily visitors and the occasional Woolly Necked Storks can be spotted in the branches of the trees.

Accommodation at Crooked Tree Cottage:
The accommodation consists of a 3-roomed cottage and a Studio suite, both of which are let as B&B accommodation most of the year.  They are both, however, ideally suited for those of you who prefer to holiday on a self-catering basis.  The cottage can accommodate 6 to 7 guests and three studio unit can accommodate 1 to 2 guests.

Breakfasts:
