Zuider Zee Guest House
Ranked #1 of 12 Salt Rock B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I choose Zuiderzee because of the proximity to the airport. It’s only a 20 min. drive. Perfect when you arrive from a long and tiring flight and you can leave the dangers, stress and noise from a city far behind you. Zuiderzee is a tranquil base, located in a quiet cul-de-sac, but still close enough to Durban, although Ballito already has everything you need.
The lush garden with birds and monkeys gives the place a peaceful and exotic vibe that I really didn’t expect so close to Durban.
The rooms are not luxurious but they are spotless clean, spacious and have everything you need including a flatscreen TV. The biggest asset of Zuiderzee is the self-catering part. Each room has its own kitchenette with stove, microwave, fridge, …which gives you a lot of liberty on your vacation.
Besides the kitchenette each room has an individual BBQ area outside.
All this for a very very reasonable price. We paid 700 R for the self-catering room for 2 pers excluding breakfast.
Breakfast (optional) was excellent. The sunny breakfast area has tables inside and outside on a deck overlooking the sea (from afar). A perfect start of the day. The tables are individual so guests that need a bit of time to wake up in the morning are not “obliged” to eat at the same table with the other guests. But there is still the possibility to interact with the others if you want to.
Last but not least Simon and Tsitske are great hosts and made us feel really welcome. Thank you for a delightful stay!

Room Tip: The wooden cabins are the nicest of all the rooms.

We had a wonderful stay at Zuider Zee Guest house. We found the owner to be very welcoming and efficient. The room was lovely and the view of the sea great. Our stay was brief but wonderful. The security on the premises was good. It was a little tricky to find the guest house, but once we had been there once it was fine.

The room was clean and nicely appointed, but we didn't feel welcomed. During our short stay, the power went out for over 24 hours. Parking was difficult due to the steep driveway. We ended up up traveling to Ballito for restaurants. Next time we will find a place closer to the ocean.

Excellent service and very affordable! They are friendly and very accommodating! We were in Durban and attending a wedding, needed to check out later than usual and they switched us to a other room to get dress all without extra charge! Highly recommended!

Very cozy guesthouse with a nice green area, big rooms, braai facilities right in front of the room, nice pool area and excellent breakfast. The dolphin room we stayed in has it's own sundeck and is spacious and comfortable.
