Shangrila in Bazley Beach
Self-catering Luxury Accommodation
KZN South Coast
Shangrila is a true gem. Set in 8 acres of indigenous coastal gardens, forest and grassland is a beautiful old colonial beach home with wide wrap around verandahs, and truly magnificent views of the Indian Ocean. Bazley Beach is a secluded and tranquil holiday resort just under an hour from Durban.
The home sleeps 10 guests.
The cottage sleeps 4 guests.
Bought by the owners in 2013, the whole property has been completely renovated and refurbished, after many years of neglect, to the highest modern standards. The buildings stand proudly in a landscaped indigenous garden designed by the guru of all indigenous gardeners, Elsa Pooley.
Elsa has created a beautiful garden, which is now a sanctuary for birds, butterflies, frogs and the elusive bushbuck and iMpiti. There is also a magnificent rock garden created by Creina Alcock, which makes the inland view as spectacular as the sea views.
The interiors have been exquisitely decorated by Fiamma Forsdick, the owners sister, who is a well known South African decorator. She has chosen elegantly comfortable furnishings, ideal for a beach home. These compliment lovely antiques and art, which were collected at auctions for the house.
