About Vikings Rest

Vikings Rest is situated 50 meters from the ocean in Shelly Beach. The cul-de-sac property is in the second row from beachfront, and is surrounded by a large tropical garden with a small stream trickling through it. We are a 3 minute walk from the beach with the Shelly Centre shopping complex a convenient 5 minutes’ drive away. The popular bathing beaches of St Michael's on Sea, Uvongo, Margate blue flag beach and Ramsgate blue flag beach are within 5 to 15 minutes’ drive.

Vikings Rest is wheelchair friendly. A stone floor, brick wall cottage with built in braai's on the patio overlooking the garden. The kitchen is modern and spacious with eye level ovens and fully-equipped. Also has washing machine.

For your piece of mind the property is secured with 24 hour reaction alarm.

Shelly Beach is a fisherman's paradise with excellent shore and boat angling opportunities. The annual sardine run, during the winter months, brings large shoals of Sardine close to the shore. Shad, game fish, dolphins and shark join in the feeding frenzy, bringing life to the oceans. Daily angling, diving and pleasure trip charters depart from the angling club 5 minutes’ drive.

The world renowned Protea Banks reef is situated offshore from Shelley Beach. Protea Banks is rated as one of South Africa's top ten diving destinations. It is a must for shark lovers and boasts large shoals of Hammerhead as well as Bull Shark, Bronze Whalers, Raggedtooth and the odd Tiger Shark.

Ons het baie lekker gebly, dis skoon, ruim en baie privaat. Die beste is dat ons hondjies ook welkom was by Vikings Rest. Dankie Elna en Gert.<i>We had a very nice stay, it was clean , spacious and very private. The best is that our dogs were welcome at Vikings Rest. Thanks to Elna and Gert</i>
