Only stayed overnight but the accommodation looked out over the ocean. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Room had all we needed and was very comfortable. Breakfast nice with varied menu and nice fresh eggs. Only slight gripe was the car park over the road that attracted cars who played loud music but saying that they were gone by 9 so... More

We came in late the first day and the host was very flexible with welcoming us and handing us the key which we really appreciated. The next morning we were off to Lesotho on a tour leaving very early so the even had breakfast... More

We stayed in the Coral Sands apartment - which was fine - but did not feel that "lived in" and did not have the same vibe as the main Guest House. Next... More

More of a boutique hotel than a b&b the lovely staff and helpful owner make this a very welcoming place. Right across from the beach the area felt safe day and night. Was there only one night while awaiting flight home, would return for a longer relaxing time at the beach. Car necessary if staying for more than one day... More

This was a great place right on the ocean. The accommodations and people were great. The breakfast was also very good. The monkeys were an extra bonus! The apt was nice and isolated with a great balcony and view of the ocean.

The hosts went out of their way to make our stay special - even recommending good value places for laundry , cash war, etc. Strongly recommended - handy for airport.... More

The location is great - a short drive from King Shaka Airport which after a long journey from Europe is much appreciated. It is also only a conveniently short,safe walk from restaurants and a café. The public spaces are beautifully furnished, light and airy with wonderful views over the ocean. The memory of enjoying the delicious breakfast while watching a... More
