About our home

Our well-situated garden apartment/flat - called Skyblu - is an ideal location for overseas tourists visiting the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal or as a base for the Battlefields of Northern Natal or the coastal Game Reserves of KwaZulu-Natal. Our guests come from all over the world.
Skyblu comprises a fully equipped kitchen/diningroom, a lounge, a bedroom with two 3/4 beds as well as an en-suite shower/toilet. Full DSTV tv as well as free, uncapped, wifi. We also let this cottage out and it enjoys a current rating of 9.6 on the leading accommodation booking platform.
If a couple wanted to accommodate a further two people/children we could arrange for them to also have use of the adjacent apartment/cottage known as Ultraviolet

Where is it?


Skyblu is in a garden setting in a residential area in the centre of Howick. We are down a driveway with family houses on all sides. We are 5 minutes from the Howick Falls, 10 minutes from the famous Mandela Capture Site, and 15 minutes from the renowned Piggly Wiggly shopping centre. Pietermaritzburg is 26 kilometres away and Durban 120 km - both via the national N3 road. We are well based for day trips around the Midlands as well as for trips to the Drakensberg, the Ezemvelo game parks, and the Northern Natal Battlefield sites.
