Hi Christelle, I am happy that you enjoyed your stay with us, apart from not being able to pick-up wi-fi. I was unfortunately not made aware of this. At this point in time we are having internet problems with Telkom, not just Shaka's Seat, but the entire area. This has been reported to Telkom and they are trying to get...

Beautiful view, well located for the beach, nice and sunny pool and friendly staff. The styling is a bit dated, it feels like an english hotel from the 60s, but nonetheless a great place to stay in Shaka's Rock. Good for a couple of days of relaxing on the coast

We only spent 1 night at Shaka's Seat but will definitely return. The room has everything you need for a comfortable stay, rooms get serviced daily. Each room has it's own patio. The road passing below it is quite busy but the patio doors block the sound of passing cars. The beach is literally a stone throw away. You will...

Nicely situated and a lovely stay...We did not spend much time in the apartment but enjoyed the scenery and the other warm welcome of Sandy (the owner). Gave us lots of information on what was happening in Ballito/Salt rock as well as some good restaurants.

We recently spent 4 nights at Shaka's Seat - a lovely property a short walk away from the beach. This was a time to reunite with family and we couldn't have chosen better. We occupied the self-catering suite on the ground floor as well as a room upstairs. The place was immaculate with a beautiful attention to detail. Shaka's Seat...
