This 6-acre property, on the beach in a very quiet part of the KZN mid-south coast is the perfect opportunity for somebody who wants a little more than just hard work. It is a great opportunity with many options available to lifestyle seekers. The new owners can either continue with the existing business or change direction into a retirement-type setup, drug rehab center, or meditational retreat. The resort is situated in the coastal dune forest, right on the beach, approximately 50 minutes south of Durban. The wedding venue infrastructure is fully developed and situated in pristine gardens on the Elysium Point overlooking the Indian Ocean. The infrastructure has been developed to overcome adverse weather conditions, should they arise, and is in compliance with all Municipal by-laws, including all licenses required to run a commercial activity from this tourist-designated area.
The buildings comprise 5 self-catering cabins sleeping 5 people per cabin, and 7 BnB rooms, each sleeping two people, with a small kitchenette attached to all units. The wedding reception area can seat 200 people.
The Kitchen area, adjacent to the reception, is run by a dedicated wedding chef, who is available to the new owners. The bar and pool/entertainment area is roughly 200m2 and closely situated to the reception. There are 2 communal ablutions which include showers and baths. A boardwalk wedding chapel in the coastal dune vegetation, approximately 50 m from the water's edge, is our star attraction. This is backed up by an additional indoor chapel. The property has also been awarded Caravan Park status, awaiting registration. The residential dwelling on the property is a 300 m2 open-plan holiday home, constructed to amplify coastal living.
The venue has a golf putting green and another green for chipping.
All machinery required to maintain the property is included, including two vehicles and a 3-ton trailer.
Weddings and functions have been booked in advance and these will be transferred to the prospective buyer, with consideration to brides that have booked. Although the primary activity is weddings, several regular conferences and yoga retreats are also undertaken but the commercial rights on the property are an attractive angle.
Generally, the venue has roughly 30 weddings booked in advance.
This property is family-run with a truly unique relationship with our staff who all live in close proximity. Apart from marketing, admin, and service supervision, the functional employee component is fully transferable.
The business would suit a work-from-home application in which the partner could run the venue. Fibre is installed and reliable.
Scottburgh Primary and High School is a 20-minute drive north of our venue.
Scottburgh has a Hospital and Veterinary service with all the regular fast-food franchises.
Elysium is a very private and secluded friendly little Village with 7 km of Beautiful beachfront. The venue is situated on the Elysium point.
