After a challenging road, we were pleasantly rewarded by a chalet with stunning views over the ocean. The unit had all that was required for longer stays. The main bedroom in the loft provided a full view of the sea, from where dolphins and whales...More

The most gorgeous gem of a place!! I just love it!! Best value for money and exceptionally comfortable/spacious units. The wildlife is gorgeous, and watching Zebras roam freely and rather close to the units gives off a charm on its own.

The journey to Hluleka was long and painful but all was forgiven once we arrived: a house on stilts on the edge of the Wild Coast overlooking an essentially private beach. The house itself was amazing for the price with great views. We visited for...More

Absolutely idyllic location with lush, thick green forests and the most beautiful swimming beach. The water was clear and warm and we swam a lot - there were lifeguards on duty (only over Dec/Jan I think). The chalets are the greatest surprise: well kitted out...More
