5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

This guest house is nothing short of excellent. The rooms aren't big but extremely comfortable, we did stay in a queen room. The showers are GREAT. Each room has a view of the ocean. The house itself is so comfortable and very beautiful. It has many facilities. pool, bar and lounging area and is on the beach. It is a "wild" beach but OH SO BEAUTIFUL, full of character and secluded. A wonderful 4-7min walk will take you to a swimmable beach with less rocks.

Viviane and Trevor are absolutely great hosts and extremely hospitable. Breakfast is scrumptious.

Southbroom its self is the best location in the Southcoast if you want to relax, unwind, take it easy and just 5 min drive from more busier towns.

Room Tip: Pick the king rooms they have better views and are larger.

What a great place to stay. A gem on the South Coast. Viv and Trevor were hospitable hosts . Arrangements on day trips were brilliantly orchestrated!!!!

Calm peaceful rooms and breakfast was a delight.

White Shores is an elegant house set in pleasant gardens on a fine quiet beach. It has 8 bedrooms- all air conditioned and en-suite, some with private balconies and panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. The rooms are well appointed, spacious and comfortable.
It offers accommodation on a bed & breakfast basis. There is a bar and lounge with a breakfast room - this opens onto the patio with it's swimming pool.
The house is some 50 metres from a quiet road and it's garden connects to the beach. Security is good.
The hosts, Viviane and Trevor, live on the property in adjacent accommodation. They are happy to advise on tourist attractions and the many local restaurants. Our favourite was Flavours- a 10 minute drive away. The area boasts many attractions. We particularly enjoyed the spectacular Oribi Gorge and the many coastal resorts.
Viviane and her assistants prepare excellent and varied breakfasts and were friendly hosts.
We would definitely recommend White Shores to visitors to the Natal South Coast.
