A four-bedroom cottage in a complex in Pennington on the KZN South Coast with an open-plan living area and generous covered patio.
We’ve always referred to the cottage as the Beach Bungalow, say Wade and Liesl Heath of their holiday home, which they’ve owned for 15 years. Liesl, an interior decorator and owner of decor store Couch + Interiors, had been threatening to give the cottage a makeover for years, and last year they finally took the plunge.
