Click on the Top Menus for more information on the facilities the units have to offer.
Unfortunately we do not accept bookings from families with children under the age of 12.
The Hooting Owl Guest House is a unique African Thatch Bush-Veld 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 KwaZulu Natal South Coast, also know as the "Golf Coast", approximately two hours drive south from Durban’s King Shaka International Airport. Marina Beach, is often referred to as "The Honolulu of the South Coast". The guest house is set in a sub-tropical forest with valley views and prolific bird life. We provide the visitor with good quality, affordable self-catering accommodation.
We welcome all races, cultures and sexual orientation.
The whole guest house property can also be booked as a clothing optional retreat for Naturist/Nudist groups on request.
Come and relax at our venue in complete peace, quiet and privacy. Leave behind the traffic, loud music and the hustle & bustle of the main touristy areas. Marina Beach is an tranquil oasis, seldom crowded, well maintained and clean with a beautiful Blue Flag Beach.
Valley views over the sub-tropical forest conservation area. Numerous bird species, vervet monkeys, grey and blue dyker and small bush buck, porcupine, mongoose and rock hyracks inhabit the surrounding areas.
With the choice of a large six sleeper unit which has three double en-suite rooms, a three bedroom eight sleeper cottage or our open plan honeymoon cottage, we offer a range of accommodation to suite all tastes.
There is plenty of safe parking inside the premises for standard sized vehicles. 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 Maser Armed Response.

Approximately 1km from the Blue Flag Marina Beach, bordering San Lameer Golf Estate and one of the best beaches on the South Coast. We are approximately 5Km away from the newly declared "Nudist Friendly" beach at Mpenjati, south of Trafalgar.
Activities and Places of Local Interest:
The eleven golf courses found on the “Golf Coast makes us ideally situated as a home base for the ardent golf enthusiast. These include Southbroom and San Lameer, which are a five minute drive away and The Wild Coast and Selborne, within twenty to forty-five minutes drive from the guesthouse,
When the weather is good there are the five blue flag beaches to choose from, Marina Beach/San Lameer being the closest and most attractive in my opinion. 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, etc. All activities can be booked in advance or as the fancy takes you.
