What we strive for

We are striving to create a space, that is comfortable and safe where families and friends can come and relax and enjoy each other and make great memories.


From the delightful country Cafe’, to our ever-popular farmer’s market, the fantastic Driefontein garden centre, bean-to-cup Beanstruk Coffee Roastery, Lemon Canary bespoke bakery and rustic Monkey Country Pub.

The kids will be entertained and loads of open space to amble around and walk the dog/kids. Also keep an eye out for their playful group of resident mongooses - These little critters are a great source of joy for kids in particular and one can keep entertained for hours watching their antics and listening to their impressive vocab of squeaks and chirps.

December is litchi time and there’s no better place to get this summer-time favourite than direct and fresh from The Litchi Orchard! The Litchi Orchard is easily accessible, being close to the N2, but it really feels like they are tucked away in the middle of no-where.

Jungle gym
The Litchi Orchard which is a local market on the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast is also a must visit when staying at this self-catering beachfront cottage accommodation.

Ballito is a place where people can enjoy and learn about the simple things. It’s a meeting point, a place of authenticity and a place to take some time out in a relaxing environment.
