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!
