From the moment you step out of the car, Carter's Lodge cocoons you into a relaxed, pleasant state, and the hearty welcome from owner Carol Carter and her staff makes you feel right at home in one handshake.
Carter's Lodge is a place to unwind and recharge, with a sun downer in hand on the patio next to the sparkling rock pool and lush gardens, teeming with birds and lovely flowers. Or, to soak up the warmth of the sun whilst relaxing and enjoying the view of the ships anchored out at sea.
Both business traveler's and holidaymakers to KwaZulu Natal will find the location of this stylish guesthouse ideal being right across the road from La Lucia Mall shopping centre and the Virgin Active Gym and Health Club. The business parks of La Lucia Ridge and Umhlanga Ridge, as well as Gateway Entertainment Centre and Umhlanga Hospital are just up the road, and all the major sports stadiums and golf courses are only 10 to 15
minutes drive away.
Elegantly decorated with a warm and cosy atmosphere, you'll feel safe and pampered the moment you enter your room at Carter's Lodge, with the first notion to plush on the comfy bed, snuggling up for a peaceful sleep. Carol has made comfort and cleanliness a priority with white Percale linen, quality towels changed daily and all the little extras that make your stay enjoyable and memorable, like the smooth chocolate on the pillows and a glass of sherry to seal your welcome.

Carter's Lodge is just an 800m stroll to the beach, or take a walk across the road and you are in the upmarket La Lucia Mall shopping complex or, for the fitness enthusiast, at the Virgin Active Gym and Health Club.
Being situated between Umhlanga and Durban you have the best of both worlds - the metropolis of Durban with its sports stadiums, casino, golf courses, beaches, UShaka marine world, harbour cruises and a whole lot more, whilst Umhlanga offers a smaller more relaxed beach atmosphere by day but is abuzz at night with an abundance of restaurants and pubs, and, of course the Gateway shopping and entertainment complex - claimed to be the largest in Africa. But KwaZulu Natal isn't all about sea and shops.
If African game watching and South African history is your interest, within 45 minutes you can watch and learn about the Zulu dancing and culture, and just 2 to 3 hours away you can visit the KwaZulu Natal game parks featuring the Big 5, or take a tour to the Battlefields.
