Serendipity Country House truly lives up to its name – our team found it to be a spot where they could relax and recharge their batteries after a hard day of race-timing and preparation. The property boasts a garden with braai facilities, as well as nearby hiking and cycling trails, which would make it a great spot for a weekend away or a holiday. Adding to the fantastic holiday vibes is the fact that Serendipity Country House is located just 5km from the beach and within a 15-minute drive of the world-renowned Aliwal Shoal.
This tranquil spot offers a certain distance from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and Team #FinishTime were welcomed as though we were regular guests or even family members. The outstanding location offers views over the river and extremely relaxing vibes. While being just a stone’s throw from Amanzimtoti and slightly further from Durban, you can enjoy that countryside feeling, complete with fish eagles calling in the distance and perfect opportunities to wind down.
When you drive through the double timber door into the secure parking courtyard, you are instantly surrounded with this feeling of tranquility. The rooms are comfortable, tastefully decorated and equipped with everything a race timer, businessperson or holiday maker could need for a comfortable night’s sleep.
