The beach house

Please note that The Beach House is separate from The Merry Crab cottages.


Come and holiday in comfort at one of the most beautiful spots on the South Coast of KZN. Our lovely beach house is perched above the golden sands and rolling breakers of Dolphin Bay in the charming village of Munster. With its own private beach access, this home from home is the perfect place to kick back and unwind with family and friends. Dine alfresco on the deck while watching whales, dolphins, and ships pass by, chill out with books and DVD’s or explore the many beaches and attractions the surrounding area has to offer.
