We stayed 4 nights over Easter Weekend. Twin sisters Lynell and Desiree were very helpful We loved the easter treats and especially the cheesecake. We were in Room 15, Mount Rozier with balcony sea views. Comfortable bed and clean bedding. We loved the casual lounge area on our floor - just sad we didn't get to enjoy it as we...

The Vineyard was "home away from home". The hospitality is amazing, and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Deseree and Lynell are wonderful hostesses. The cleaning and kitchen staff were all friendly and efficient. We will definitely be back!

My family & I enjoyed a fantastic stay here at The Vineyard- nothing was too much trouble for them. Loved the honeymoon suite, complete with double shower & jacuzzi bath. The cafetière & fresh milk was delightful on the balcony watching the sunrise!

I stayed here in March with some friends and found the person we dealt with very surly and unhelpful even with email communication but also once we got there. The rooms were clean and good with comfortable beds but the sea facing rooms are on the first floor so you have to lug your bags up a steep stair case...

we enjoyed our four night stay in this peaceful, beautifully appointed guest house. The breakfasts were really good with a wide variety of food choices. Home baked cakes, freely available, were a real bonus. The beach is within walking distance but be prepared for a steep walk back.

We have just returned from a six night stay in the Vineyard Hotel. The Hotel is lovely. We had the Meerlust Room and it was divine. Lovely views, beautifully appointed, and comfortable. The two ladies, Linell and Desiree, who are the Managers, keep the whole place immaculate and they look after everyone so well. Their cooking is amazing from the...

We stayed in this guesthouse for one night enroute to the Umfolozi NP. The rooms were clean with good,comfortable beds (we booked the sea facing rooms) and the bathrooms were clean and well equipped with toiletries. It is a short walk down to the sea front and promenade although there are better beaches a short distance away. The breakfast was...

The hosts were helpful and the B&B beautifully decorated and clean. It was on our way to Dundee, where were visiting the Battlegrounds, and close to the airport in Durban. Didn't have a chance to go snorkeling but that was close-by

The Vineyard on Ballito is just gorgeous, the setting,decor,from the main lounge, which is so stylish, you have a view of the ocean. Their attention to detail is excellent, with Easter on it's way, the bunnies and decor pertaining to Easter was out, so tastefully done. The breakfast was something different, not your conventional bacon and eggs, but something special,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Inspired by the distinctive beauty of the South African vineyards and the country’s rich viticulture, our luxurious guest house provides a friendly haven in the sea-side town of Ballito. Enjoy superb sundowner ocean views from the terrace, a pleasant tea in the forecourt with its shady grapevine, or relax in the quiet privacy of the pool surrounds. Airy patios and bedroom balconies all make the most of the sweeping views, invigorating sunshine and fresh ocean breezes of the balmy KwaZulu-Natal climate. ... more   less
