“Lap of luxury”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in March 2012

LOVE LOVE LOVE this house. We travelled with friends, 4 adults and 4 kids age, 7 and 3, 10yr olds. I like this house as it is clean and uncluttered. This house is serviced daily and nothing is to much to ask. If something breaks it is replaced immediately. The staff is always friendly and so the owner. The kids loved the pool as the sea was way to ruff for them and with the 180 degree sea view it's a pleasure to sit on the veranda with a book. There are 2 tidal pools that the kids enjoyed but it got cold on the beach by 15:00. The best grocery store that I have ever seen in such a small holiday town, fresh bread, large selection of cheeses and fruit, awesome, with so many restaurants to choose from and the litchi farm a must. We did visit the italian restaurant more than once in the 5 days we stayed. With the boutique hotel next door the security was excellent with a guard at night. Not that I think anything would happen, but it was good to have. The beds and linen are the best. The rooms are beautiful decorated, even the soap in the shower smelled so nice that this one you wanted to use rather than yours. Aircon through the hole house - thankfully! This house is impressive! Good luck to Mark and staff, you can be proud!

“Absolutely Flawless”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This home is absolutely amazing and we had a fabulous time. The house is beautiful, the weather was great, and everyone we encountered - the home owner and staff, was more than helpful. A recommended stay for everyone who wants a nice and relaxing stay at a beautiful beach. Definitely planning to come back.

What an awesome home, could pack up and move in. Just spectacular. House is modern, spacious and super comfortable. We loved every minute. We usually stay at Beverley hills hotel or oyster box but have found the rates far exceeding the benefit of living in a toilet size room for the weekend. So we thought we would try a house rental. Not usually our choice, but the house was fully serviced with everything that you could need. The only draw-back was that our over zealous cleaners washed and tumbled dried our dirty clothes without asking, whilst kind, they shrunk all our jerseys and a dry clean only jacket! Even with this, we would still go back. Kids were comfortable and we loved it.

Local restaurants were also a plus with a kid friendly breakfast to dinner place just down the road. We also had an emergency with the kids and had to rush to emergency room, ballito medical centre was friendly, fast and efficient.

The Beach House Lodge has everything you could possibly want for a relaxed, group trip to the North Coast. The house is easily big enough for a group of 8 (there were six of us) and in a location that offers both privacy and ample access to local services (shops, bars, restaurants). We were a mixed age group (35 - 70) and all of us took great pleasure from a week in the house and surrounding area - Durban is approx 40 mins by car. The house is very stylish - perhaps too stylish for young children - but also very comfortable with wonderful seating areas inside and outside. The owner was on hand to help with a couple of minor queries and the whole house was serviced daily. All-in-all I cannot fault the experience.

“Superb beach residence”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The house feels new, open, and modern. It is superbly appointed and with all that glass very bright. We felt secure - the Canelands Spa security was a nice reassurance. Being able to tumble out onto the sand and have the constant surf beating in the background was remarkable. A real winner!
