The Hooting Owl guest house is a unique African thatch bushveld lodge set in a coastal environment. This hidden jewel was custom-built to blend harmoniously into its surroundings. The Hooting Owl is located in Marina Beach, on the Kwa-Zulu Natal South Coast, approximately two hours drive south from Durbans King Shaka International Airport.
The guest house is set in a sub-tropical forest with valley views and prolific bird life. Numerous bird species, vervet monkeys, grey and blue dyker and small bush buck inhabit the surrounding areas.
We provide our visitors with good quality, affordable self-catering accommodation. Choose from a large six-sleeper family unit with three double en-suite rooms, a three-bedroom, eight-sleeper self-catering cottage to our self-catering honeymoon cottage. We offer a range of accommodation to suite all tastes.
A starter pack of tea, coffee, sugar and milk plus a few toilet rolls will be provided. There is plenty of safe parking inside the premises; guests will receive a remote for easy access through the electric security gate during their stay. All guest areas are covered by an in-house alarm system linked to Chubb Armed Response.
The guest house can also be booked as a clothing-optional retreat for naturist groups by special arrangement, for complete peace, quiet and privacy, with valley views over the sub-tropical forest conservation area.
When the weather is good there are five Blue Flag beaches to choose from, Marina Beach or San Lameer being the closest. When the weather is bad there is also plenty to do, including horse riding, quad biking, bird watching, game drives, adventure tours, cultural tours, fishing, whale watching, diving, fine dining, spa treatments, shopping and much more. All activities can be booked in advance but it is not mandatory.
