Nestled on the banks of the Mzimayi, Anchors Aweigh is a 24 hour secure complex on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast approximately 100 km south of Durban. This resort is positioned with fantastic sea views and overlooks Hibberdene. There are trees aplenty with abundant bird life, a large flat area for ball games and children can explore the resort in total safety. Boats can be launched on the river bordering the property.
The swimming beach is a short, safe walk though the resort, crossing the bridge over the river and under the road onto the sands of this international blue flag beach, protected by shark nets and life guards. During the holiday season, there are organized activities for the children on the beach. The main beach has relaxing grass areas with shaded picnic spots, putt-putt, super-tube and a beach pub/restaurant.
Sectional Title - What you need to know
When you buy a unit in a sectional title scheme you will, upon transfer, become the exclusive owner of your section and a joint owner of the common property.
At the same time you will automatically become a member of an association comprising all the owners collectively called the Body Corporate. As a member of the Body Corporate, you have a say in all important decisions regarding the management of your scheme and the maintenance of the common property. Every year you and the other owners elect trustees who are responsible for the day-to-day affairs of the Body Corporate and generally protect your interests - their duties are clearly described in the Sectional Title Act and management rules.
A Brief History
Anchors Aweigh, originally Rondalia, is almost 60 years old. Built in 1956 by Chris Bisschoff, Rondalia catered to holiday makers who wanted "a Game reserve-type camp, with comfortable rondavels, group ablution and cooking amenities, where a community of souls could live in an atmosphere redolent with seared steaks and peppered wors, with camp fire songs and yarn-swopping". In an interview, published in 1962, Chris Bisschoff gives some interesting insights into the thinking and planning behind what is now known as Anchors Aweigh.
Camping at Anchors Aweigh
The exclusive Anchors Caravan Park has only 12 level stands beautifully positioned under the shade of gaint indeginous trees. Each site has a braai area and 16amp electrical power point. The ablution blocks are modern, neat and clean and there's ample space for the kids to play.
