This sea, estuary and coastline-facing, luxury 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment, situated on the tropical east coast of KwaZulu Natal is just 30 minutes south of Durban in the quiet, unspoiled coastal village of Illovo Beach. The town sits on the Illovo river, first christened ‘iLovo’ by the Zulu’s after the mlovo trees that grew on its banks.
La Mer is on a four-kilometre stretch of unspoiled coastline, where the beach is a very short walk away. Plant your feet firmly in the sand before being tempted in by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
