About Us

Beachfront Apartments started in October 2017 when I secured a second property.
I realized hosting and bringing people together was something I was good at and could incorporate into my daily life.

I’m a farmer’s wife, a mum of two grown up children and an entrepreneur at heart.
Since moving to the farm 28 years ago after being in the Banking sector, I started numerous projects/start up businesses. My first was farming chickens for consumption (this was where I learnt designing packing was more my passion), later I joined my children’s school to assist with their School marketing (here I became a self taught graphic designer), I then opened a Health Shop (learnt about customer service). All these valuable lessons has taught me to draw on my real-life experiences, in order to offer the best holiday experience for my guests.

I have since founded Awesome Host Unite, which is a network of fellow Hosts and Owners.
Here we offer support to each other and pass on referrals. I believe in “Paying it Forward” and having an Abundance Mindset and that by sharing you receive more good in life.

As a child, I moved more times than my age (13 at that stage) and then later I married a farmer and I haven’t moved since. We are privileged to live on a farm in the beautiful KZN Midlands, South Africa, a short drive from our properties.

I look forward to welcoming you.

Warm regards

Melanie
