My stay at the Saffron house is a cherished, lasting memory.
My spouse and I stayed for a few days, to get away from all the stress of the busy world. We both desired a seaside holiday and some quality time together. On my desk at work is a photograph of our time there, to comfort my thoughts.
The Saffron House is located in Salt Rock; this is an ideal location because the town is not commercialised with large shopping centres, traffic and overcrowding (unlike some nearby seaside towns). And yet it is easy to locate, and not far from Durban at all.
What you will find are unspoilt beaches, river mouths, tidal pools, natural flora, sounds of silence and nature, friendly holiday makers, and a relaxing sense of safety as you are able to walk from the Saffron House to any of these natural features.
There are a few (but not too many!) restaurants nearby that make for excellent evening dining in the quiet nights.
As for the House itself, the rooms were spotless, scenic, and refreshingly cooled in a boiling summer. The pool was crystal clear and inviting. The facilities exceeded our expectations, and had some unique features. Privacy and peace were experiences that we could take for granted at The Saffron House.
Our hosts were very polite, welcoming folk. Their talents included a deliciously diverse breakfast, and a good knowledge of tourist activities within their area. In fact, they went quite far to assist us in finding things to do to make the holiday memorable.
If you're looking for holiday accomodation without any worries, if you want to remember your holiday in peaceful dreams, I kindly recommend a stay at the Saffron house.
