Flew in from JB and stayed overnight before a morning drive to Lesotho. Location was splendid on a hill overlooking the ocean, and with gated parking. Would not hesitate to spend a little extra for the Honeymoon Suite, which was spacious, super comfy and quiet. Welcome drinks and daily baked goods were a nice touch! Friendly hosts and close proximity...

We were well looked after by the two superb and very competent twin sisters managing the guesthouse. Nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast was excellent - tasty and imaginative ! There was a delicious home made cake provided every day and the rooms were tastefully and comfortably furnished. It was spotlessly clean and all staff friendly and helpful....

We enjoyed our stay at the vineyard very much. The room had a great view to the ocean and the bathroom was very comfortable. The daily cakes and the breakfast were very delicious. The only disappointment were the people staying in the room next door. Quite often they were smoking on the shared balcony and the disgusting smell went into...

The place is very refreshing. I had an awesome rest. Unfortunately my room was very close to the reception desk and dining area; and I would often be woken up by the commotion in the morning. The place itself is very pleasant

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was clean and very comfortable, it also had lovely sea views. The bed was comfortable and the shower excellent.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Inspired by the distinctive beauty of the South African vineyards and the country’s rich viticulture, our luxurious guest house provides a friendly haven in the sea-side town of Ballito. Enjoy superb sundowner ocean views from the terrace, a pleasant tea in the forecourt with its shady grapevine, or relax in the quiet privacy of the pool surrounds. Airy patios and bedroom balconies all make the most of the sweeping views, invigorating sunshine and fresh ocean breezes of the balmy KwaZulu-Natal climate. ... more   less
