On the beach! Popular establishment, a quick walk down the little roadway (approx. 50m) and you're on the beach. Great place to relax and unwind – feels like a permanent holiday! We offer fully equipped Self Catering Apartments (1, 2, 4 and 6 sleeper cottages), budget Backpacker dorms, doubles, twins and lovely private rooms set in a tropical garden. All major KZN tourist attractions within a 15 minute to 3 hour radius, so it's a great place to base yourself if you plan on doing a few day trips in KZN. For our business clients, we are within close proximity to all the industrial centres – Jacobs, Maydon Wharf, Prospecton, Clairwood. Great atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. Free super fast fibre wifi connection, small bar, swimming pool, pool table as well as a small surf/beach/curio shop. Heidi's Cafe on site - a very popular cafe serving good filter coffee, breakfasts (health and full English), as well as delicious home baked treats (when available - these sell out fast!)

Literally a minutes walk to the beach. There’s a cafe on the premises that offers breakfast daily on a very affordable rate. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. The beach is never packed which was a bonus for me

Thank you for the beautiful long weekend, The place was awsome and our host Lance was such a lovely one...he made sure we were catered for with everything!! such a lovely bubbly and welcoming soul that knows the place and surroundings with his eyes closed!! The place was very accommodating for the kids as well with so much to do from swimming in the pool to swimming in the sea which is just a few steps away from the apartments!! we were literally blown away by the beauty of it all and we cannot wait to visit them again. Thank you to the friendly staff as well everyone was great!!! :)

Great spot with nice rooms at a good price. The recent cyclone made the waves at the beach a bit much for surfing as novices but still close to the tidal pool for a calm dip. Good atmosphere and staff always friendly and willingness to help. Thanks especially to lance for local bookshop tips and the banana vodka cocktails!
