“Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

We had a lovely stay at your guesthouse. was a bit dissapointed with changing from the log cabin to the penthouse. the log cabin was much nicer and comfortable with the second bedroom for the kids. thank you very much for the stay and will visit again. daily clean towels would've been nice.

Dear Alet
Thank you for your review of your stay at our guesthouse. We are sorry for the changeover although the Penthouse has air conditioning! Towels are replaced on request when needed, however we do request guests to please bring their own towels due to water restrictions. We are looking forward to your next visit and hope that you will book early so that the cabin will be available for your full booking! Kind regards, Villa Jaime

We had a lovely 3 days at Villa Jaime. The owner Jamie made us feel at home, the cosy log cabin was perfect and the view....great! The beds were comfortable, shower perfect, in your own kitchen you can make everything, as the kitchen is fully equipped like in the Netherlands. Breakfast out side on your own great terrace, with table and chairs and sunchairs. You can play golf in the surrounding. Thanks Jamie, we had a lovely time, and maybe if we are visiting SA again we will stay longer in the cosy log cabin.

Beautiful place with beautiful owners. I enjoy staying there. Beautiful views of the Indian Ocean! Beds are super comfortable and most of the units are very spacious! Ample parking (off-site) for trailers etc!

Wish our three nights could have been 30. Also pleased I didn't know about the 49 steps down to the Cosy Log Cabin (and up again!) before we went; the cabin itself compensated entirely for that enforced, unaccustomed exercise. We loved the huge deck, the comfy lounge, the wonderful bedrooms. I was also fascinated by the resident artist, GSDs Tomtom and Nikki, kittens Prince Louis and Princess Anne, and Mr Wobbles the Maltese. Jaime aka Islay Ernst is an utter duck. Can't wait to go again, hopefully for longer. I see Aislingjoy complained of cigarette smell in the garden room - that's the fault of inconsiderate guests, infinite space outside to indulge if one must..

Villa Jaime - lovely comfortable rooms and beds, a wonderful home from home with a great host in Jaime and fantastically friendly staff. Lots of shopping close-by and walking distance to the beaches - ticked all the boxes - I will be back.

Villa Jaime, in the heart of Ballito on the coast of Durban, was such a great holiday home! We were blessed to have stayed there for a little while as a family and the kids have never slept so well. The sound of the ocean and the beautiful ocean view was such a cherry on top. Jaime's hospitality was remarkable and we honestly can't wait to go again! Thank you so much to Jaime and the staff for making our stay such an unforgettable experience- we will surely tell everyone about it! Heinz Winckler and Family!

We spent two nights in the garden room 1. The hospitality was great and the location is fantastic for the beach and restaurants. The bed was great, we slept very well. Unfortunately our room smelled of stale cigarette smoke and damp. There is mould and damp on walls and curtains and the walls were so thin we had a fair amount of noise disturbance. We had read great things about this place on other reviews so maybe we will visit again but request a different room.

Room Tip: Do not recommend garden room 1
