We stayed at the Vineyard on Ballito for 3 days/2 nights, and although the bed-and-breakfast seemed nice enough, we were not impressed with our surroundings or with the service, especially since it is a 5 star B&B establishment.
Breakfast was great though, home-made scones, fresh fruit salad, cooked breakfast, etc.
The Vineyard on Ballito is not located near to the beach or near to any other place of interest, so refrain from staying here if you do not have your own transportation. We are generally all for walking, but the climb from the beach is quite steep coming back, so to be taken into consideration. Apart from the beach, the only other place of interest is the mall/shopping center in Ballito, which is quite small and not very interesting, and unreachable on foot (you have to take a taxi there and back). So all in all, the Vineyard on Ballito is fine if you prefer to have a very quiet time, either at the pool of the hotel, or in your room, or balcony.
Another thing to keep in mind, there is no staff on the premises from +/-16:00 every day, although they are reachable via phone after that time.
