Villa Roc is a beautiful gem nestled amongst majestic Royal Palms in the seaside village of Salt Rock. Awaken to tropical birdsong and the sound of waves breaking on the breathtaking North Coast shoreline. A short stroll to seamless beaches flanked by tidal pools-ideal for snorkeling or a leisurely swim. A delightful full breakfast is served alongside a sparkling pool - South African hospitality at its best!

Heidi, the host, is amazing! Nothing is too much trouble for her. Our group of family and friends was big enough to fill every room and Heidi just made it feel as though it was our home. The setting was superb with braiis around the pool in the evening and Heidi's wonderfully comprehensive breakfast on one large table by the pool in the morning. The rooms are beautifully decorated, well appointed and spotlessly clean. We were able to park our three vehicles on site including the mini-bus. The beach is just a three minute walk away and shops and restaurants five minutes. Some of our rooms had sea views.

This gem of a bed and breakfast is perfectly situated in close proximity to Salt Rock beach, with beautiful, clean and well maintained beaches.

The Villa Roc itself is neat, clean, secure aand very well run. The owner, Heidi is absolutely amazing and friendly. She made us feel right at home and went to great lengths to ensure that we enjoyed our stay.

If you're ever in the area and looking for a home away from home experience then Villa Roc is it. We absolutely enjoyed our stay and the hospitality was beyond amazing!

Thank you Heidi for your kind heart and kindred spirit, I absolutely enjoyed engaging with you and will definitely return when next I am in KZN.

My husband stayed at Villa Roc twice in the last month on business and was blown away by the hospitality and professionalism of the hosts. Nothing was too much effort and the accommodation was upmarket, comfortable and spotless. He thoroughly enjoyed Heidi's hearty breakfasts and has said he will most definitely return when in the area again. He said the location in Salt Rock was also great.

This is an excellent self catering accommodation option on the Salt Rock Beach area of Ballito. The home is now run by two sisters, Jane and Paula, who have turned the place into a beautifully appointed, well equipped, secure, clean environment. There is secure parking and a pool and a well equipped kitchen. There are restaurants close by and Jane and Paula can give you plenty of advice and tips on local eateries, shopping and beaches. We really enjoyed this end of Ballito and the cost was very reasonable. We will return for sure. Martin and Sheila.

We had the most wonderful beach vacation staying at the Coral Tree Cottage at Villa Roc Guesthouse. It was the perfect size for my husband and I, and our two dogs. We loved the location, 300m from the best beach in town. We swam every morning with the sunrise. All beaches were pet friendly, just bring enough doggy poop bags! We mostly ate breakfast with Paula and Jane, the sisters running the Villa Roc, and had dinner out in Ballito, 7 min drive from the guest house. A must stay, really a lovely cottage, separate from the rest of the guest house. Quieter and more privacy.

We found this beautiful place by accident, while actually looking for something else.
The Villa Roc has an ideal layout, all rooms with en suite bath rooms, rooms are so tastefully furnished and decorated. The spacious terraces and lounge are perfect chill-out areas. The kitchen is perfectly equipped and superb to cook in. Heidi who runs the place is so easy going, warm hearted, charming and helpful. In cas u stay B&B she prepares first class breakfast for you. For me the #1 place to stay in the Ballito area - Villa Roc really rocks!

We had to visit Salt Rock for a 60th birthday at the Salt Rock Surf & Life Saving Club - literally 200m walk from Villa Roc ..... AND the next day the perfect location for a dip in the sea!

Our room conveniently walked out on the cosy lounge & pool, the former with a large array of excellent books .... just right for my wife & I who are avid readers!

Our host Heidi could not have given us a warmer welcome!

We'll be back!

Can not recommend this property highly enough.
It has to be one of the most beautifully decorated guests houses in SA, extremely tasteful and unique. So much love and care has gone into it. 5 stars
The sea view room with veranda was large and airy.
Breakfast was the best we had in South Africa, continental and cooked. Superb.
Just 1 minute walk from a lovely beach where you can walk for miles.
100% recommend this guest house and its lovely hosts.

Such a beautiful spot and wonderful rooms too. The attention to detail is evident throughout Villa Roc and Heidi was a superb hostess who made us feel totally at home and relaxed. The breakfast was also excellent and we were so glad we found this gem of a place. Will definitely go back if we have the chance.

Heidi runs the happiest BnB ever, with one of the best breakfasts on the KZN North Coast! Her unique home is a cosy retreat just a half-hour from Durban, a stone's throw away from two iconic North Coast landmarks: Salt Rock beach and Siggi's German restaurant. Highly recommended!
