About Antje Hockly
I am German and live in South Africa since 1997. I am married to Clive and we have two daughters. My parents bought this apartment to spend time with us after they retired. For 16 years it was their happy place and I hope it will make many happy memories for you!
Antje Hockly purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Antje Hockly chose Selection Beach
It is one of the oldest but best apartment blocks in the village of Umdloti, which is one of the prime holiday villages in KZN if not the whole of the SA coast. Here is still SPACE, i.e. there is a generous garden with a large pool in the middle of the complex with direct access to the beach by a pedestrian gate. There are only 32 units and each flat has their own garage plus one open parking.
What makes this Apartment unique
The view, when you step onto the balcony is breathtaking! The apartment is spacious and uncluttered but comfortable. One of my artist friends painted the murals on the walls. Fall asleep to the sound of the sea and wake up to spectacular sunrises!

Cabana at Umdhloti
We had a very pleasant stay, with our only regret being the fact that we had to leave before we wanted to. I was also rather disappointed that I was not able to solve the intricate hosing arrangement in the shower upstairs!! The basic shower was easy to operate, but I could not realise the seeming potential offered by the rest.
Barbara has suggested that you might consider putting or painting a white strip on the edge of the last 2 (wooden steps) down from second level to the first, as the transition from the white tiled steps to the wood tends to be obscured by the fact that the steps blend in with the floor.
The apartment was very comfortable and well designed.
Thank you Antje.
Umdloti is a gem on the North Coast of Natal. Still homely and quiet compared to the busy Umhlanga next door, this is a quaint village where people know each other and locals are friendly and helpful. Some of the best restaurants in the greater Durban area are right here and the tidal pool on the north side of the village provides safe bathing and swimming.
20min drive and you are in Durban, where uShaka Marine World is located and a mere two hours north you are in the middle of the bushveld in one of the oldest Big 5 Game Reserves in the country Hluhluwe/Umfolozi. The year round warm waters of the Indian Ocean make this the ideal holiday spot and base to explore from
