Escape to the tranquility of this sea-facing, luxury 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment situated on the tropical east coast of KwaZulu Natal. Thirty minutes south of Durban is the quiet, unspoiled coastal village of Illovo Beach with blissfully balmy weather all year round and the warm tropical water of the Indian Ocean.
With breath-taking sea-views the ground floor apartment is fully furnished with one double (en-suite) and one twin bedroom and a spacious open-plan kitchen-dining-living area. The main bedroom and lounge have direct access to a wide terrace with 180 degree sea-view, outdoor furniture and a gas barbeque.
Four kilometres of beautifully soft sandy beach washed by the warm Indian Ocean stretches either side of La Mer. The beach, accessed by a private gate, is a few minutes' walk from the apartment and offers excellent fishing off the beach, safe swimming in shark-net protected waters, blissful sunbathing and endless sand-castle building opportunities. The lagoon at the mouth of the Lovu River is a haven for bird-watching and canoeing.
La Mer is well maintained with lush gardens and a sparkling swimming pool and kiddies pool with barbeque facilities and a club house. The complex has 24-hour security, undercover parking for one vehicle, plus ample open parking for visitors. The main coastal highway is out of view and earshot, but is 10 minutes' drive away offering easy access to some of South Africa's top game parks, dive sites, nature reserves, golf courses and other coastal attractions.

The KwaZulu-Natal region
Illovo Beach with its warm ocean and sunny weather is the perfect holiday destination to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and a base from which to explore the KwaZulu Natal South Coast. The area is renowned for its sub-tropical forests, blue lagoons, golden beaches, rocky coves, whales, dolphins and golf courses. International scuba dives sites at Aliwal Shoal (Umkomaas) and Protea Banks (Shelley Beach) are within easy reach and for the golfer the South Coast is close to golfing paradise. There are nine spectacular 18-hole golf courses, including Selborne Golf Course and Durban Country Club. The area is also home to an array of outdoor activities including surfing, hiking, mountain biking, bird watching, horse riding and nature walks. Extreme Adventures at Oribi Gorge host abseiling and gorge swinging, or visit Croc World, Umgeni Bird Park, or just laze on the beach.
Durban is 48km (25 minutes drive) north of Illovo Beach and abounds with leisure facilities including uShaka Marine World, Durban Harbour and Yacht Marina, beachfront stalls selling traditional arts and crafts, Durban's Golden Mile, Sun Coast Casino, the International Convention Centre, Moses Mabhida Stadium, Greyvillle Race Course and Kingsmead Cricket Stadium.
Two hours drive north of Durban are the exciting wildlife and safari destinations of KwaZulu Natal including Hluhluwe-iMfolozi and iSimangaliso Wetland Park (The Greater St Lucia Wetland Park). The reserves boasts a fantastic cross section of wildlife and have some of the best game viewing in the country.
