Overall we enjoyed ourselves, the beds were comfortable, the showers adequate, very nice sitting outside listening to the sea and playing on the beach.
If you need somewhere to go unwind with a good book then this is the place for you.
Parking for 2 cars with car port, large kitchen with washing machine (no drier), dishwasher, fridge and freezer. 2 rooms with double beds and bathrooms, 3 rooms with 2 single beds (1 double bed in one) that share 2 bathrooms. TV area and outside 4 chairs and sofa with coffee table facing the sea.

Stayed here last May, spend all day on the beach exploring rock pools with the kids. Comfortable rooms with everything you need. Kitchen well equipped with plenty of fridge and freezer space. Serviced daily by friendly lady, Rachel, who even set the table for all our meals!! Close to shopping centres in Ballito. It was the most perfect, private spot for our family to unwind and relax. Highly recommend.
