Kingsley House, has to be without doubt, one of the best holiday destinations in Ballito nestled on the highest point of Ballito overlooking Zimbali, with a fantastic sea view right through to Durban Harbour. We are sure to create a lasting and memorable experience, with everyone who stays here wanting 'more'. Kingsley House has magnificent facilities - a bar serves all areas flowing onto a sweeping patio with spectacular views. This leads down to a lovely level pool terrace which is ideal for early evening drinks and cocktails. Kingsley House offers five luxurious large double bedrooms with all the essentials. A scrumptious breakfast is served on the patio to start the day and an honesty bar is open to guests on their return at the end of the day. We are close to everything happening in Ballito; less than 1.5 Km to all the major shopping centres, restaurants, main beaches, deep sea fishing, diving, dolphin watching; less than 10 km to Zimbali, Umhlali and Simbithi Golf Courses; 10 km to Holla trails for off road cycling and running; a few hours north to a number of well-known game farms including Phinda, Hluhluwe and Umfolozi, and 25 km south to Umhlanga for fabulous shopping, movies and restaurants.

We recently spent a couple of nights at Kingsley House Ballito which was truly memorable for all the right reasons. Our host Nikki Drake was super helpful and went the extra mile during our short stay. Example; we had an early flight and she got up provided breakfast which was lovely and fresh. More generally this accommodation in our view is superb in terms of layout, the quality of its fixtures and fittings, the quality and comfort of the furnishings; no expense spared. The property has some wonderful art throughout, that adds to the entire feel of the guest house, providing a very authentic African feel; just wonderful. The accommodation was spotlessly clean throughout with charming staff where nothing was too much trouble. Outside: the gardens are beautiful, really tastefully set out, great terrace area with wonderful sea views, so much so we had our bubbles and evening meal on the terrace. Finally the pool was immaculately clean, great size, ideal for relaxing and the again the soft furnishings and loungers were too quality. No hesitation in recommending this property for the discerning traveller! Thank you David & Louise
