carpe diem

Carpe Diem offers you a "farm holiday" with the

original 1940's farmhouse still standing proud. 


With our self-catering guest rooms, you have the sea and waves lashing on your doorstep, 50 meters from the sands of beautiful Umdloti beach. You can see the dolphins playing in the clear water while having your morning coffee on your veranda. The garden offers privacy and the shade of enormous milkwood trees, blessing you with their tranquility.

We are on the end of the beach, quiet and peaceful.  A safe and fun environment, where your children are free to play.

Come discover the beauty of "Carpe Diem", our home in the sun.
