I loved the people and the place, very well done, cozy. These places you feel at home. The tree house is very funny, for a couple very romantic. It is very clean, too.

Get welcomed my a SUPER friendly Mike,who give you all the low down on what going on in and around ballito.Awsome atmosphere,Great place to stop off for a cold one before a night out and u might not make it any further.Its a place with a definite CHILL factor.close to all everywhere(beach,bars,restaurants,out door adventures,snake parks,crocodile parks,you name it)Yet you will feel like you have been on holiday away from the city life.

Take it sleazy

DEFINITLY A SPOT WORTH CHECKING OUT

Room Tip: Its a backpacker where ever u fall down will be a good place to sleep

With a blend of peace, quiet and party you will find your self wanting to stay longer, with everything on your doorstep and not needing to go far to reach the beach and other places of interest, lying back and soaking in the peace and quiet is wonderful hate to move on.
