The Boathouse is a luxury 4* beach front retreat on the beautiful North Coast, providing luxurious accommodation to the weary traveller.
Popular for spotting the bottle-nose dolphin off the coast line, Ballito is at the heart of the Dolphin Coast near Durban. Known as the pearl of the Dolphin Coast, Ballito is flanked by golden beaches and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
Guests can enjoy a leisurely breakfast overlooking Salmon Bay, while watching dolphins playing in the waves, before setting out for an activity-filled day or just soaking up the sun next to the swimming pool.
The guest house has direct access to the beach, offering the opportunity for lengthy strolls along this stunning coastline.
A perfect end to the afternoon is watching the tide come in while sipping a sundowner from the bar.
Each room is individually decorated in its own colour scheme of fabric and style, and most have sea views.
Lunch and dinner in the a la carte restaurant are memorable experiences - guests can enjoy delicious cuisine that is complimented by a fine selection of South African wines. Specialities like fresh line fish, seafood platters and choice cuts of beef are enhanced by fresh herbs and exotic stocks and sauces.
