The addition of the conservatory is the icing on the cake. The garden is ideal for relaxing and catching the sun in. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty crockery, cutlery, etc. We very much appreciated the welcome pack. Umtali is ideally situated it is a short level walk to the village and beach and there is a bus stop opposite where you can get buses to a variety of surrounding towns. There is no need to use your car if you don't want to. All in all we had a fantastic week there and would highly recommend this lovely bungalow. Thank you.
