Luxurious, tasteful, yet home from home
Indlwana is a perfect holiday destination home, especially if you are having a bigger trip within South Africa. It is immaculate, 5* accomodation which allows privacy, security, and a fabulous place to relax. Within an easy walk to the beach and a short drive to the commercial centres full of bars and shopping, what more do you want. On site staff keep the household running, and an honesty bar means your glass is kept topped up. Thank you to the hosts Paul and Terry for allowing stays within your fabulous home.

The perfect “in the bush” retreat with all amenities and an easy walk to the ocean.
Do not pass up the opportunity to stay in this beautiful house! It has everything.....situated in the Simbithi eco estate, Ballito. Simbithi has a golf course and country club...excellent restaurant with views of the golf course. Nearby Simbiosis Spa is an oasis of calm for that bit of self indulgence! The house is luxuriously appointed, with swimming pool and an enchanting garden. I have stayed here 4 times and we are planning a 5th.

Comfort and style at Indlwana
Fabulous 4 night stay with Paul and Terry. The house is gorgeous, comfortable, spotless. I loved being able to walk from the garden into the indigenous forest - and feeling safe. Great walks and cycle paths. Everything one needs is close - restaurants,shops,beach. We even took a day trip to a game park. As Arnie says ... I will be back!!!

Marvellous South African Home, wonderful Setting
Many thanks to Terry and Paul for a wonderful 5 day stay in their gorgeous, modern home. The house is stunning. Spacious, airy and welcoming. For Nature lovers like ourselves, the setting is unbeatable. Birds and deer visit the garden beneath the huge terrace, monkeys run across the roofs and play in the nearby trees. We spent many hours on the terrace, just watching the wildlife. The pool is a bonus. As is the lovely Phyllis. There are lovely trails wending their way through the trees, past lakes and by streams in Simbithi estate. We set out every day on a mini walking adventure. It’s stunning and safe. You can also walk down to the beach, an easy 12 minute amble from the house. We loved our stay, and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

Beautiful house in eco resort
What a great house which exceeded our expectations. Located in a beautiful eco forest location it is totally private, yet it has all the amenities you need on your doorstep. My favourite time was sitting on the veranda at 7 am in the morning listening to the wildlife. The owners Paul and Terry were discretely in the background if needed and the maid Phyllis was fantastic and very helpful. She even managed to mend the strap on my son’s briefcase. Ballito and it’s many restaurants are 10 minutes drive from the house and there are also 2 large shopping malls within 6 to 7 minutes drive from the house. The security is excellent - it takes a bit of time to set up on arrival but relax this is Africa. I had toothache towards the end of my stay and the owners managed to find me a dentist at short notice. Paul and Terry run their own travel business - South African Secrets and they really know how to take care of people. This is a great house on the relaxed North Durban coast which I prefer to the Cape. More laid back and better beaches and great golf courses.

Wonderfully spacious, luxurious mansion
Located on a beautiful, lush eco-estate, this house (well manion, really) is spacious and well furnished. All the bedrooms are large and super comfortable and all have ensuite bathrooms. On the main floor there is a huge kitchen/diner/lounge area which leads onto a dining room and there is also a comfortable sitting room with big screen TV although we never had time to watch anything as there are so much to do in the local surroundings. There is also a fantastic outside dining area with a bbq and a swimming pool The terrace looks out onto a jungle and you can walk through this to get to the beach (takes about 15 mins). There are also numerous walks you do around the beautiful estate. This is a spacious, beautifully furnished house which is well located for the local beaches, golf courses and all the other attractions in this area of Balito.

Idyllic retreat with everything you could want on your doorstep
Simbithi Eco Estate provides a safe haven from the stresses and strains of everyday life. From the moment you enter the estate you can relax and enjoy the facilities knowing that your safety and security is being taken care of. Enjoy the walks around the estate and feast your eyes on the plants and wildlife which abound. When you want to explore further the beach is just a short walk away and there is an abundance of great eating places and shops nearby. INDLWANA is breath taking, everything is to the highest standard and kept immaculately clean. It has to be one of the best rentals in Ballito.

A Peaceful Haven in a Beautiful Place
This is a wonderful place to stay, the house is superb and very comfortable, lovely rooms and great pool. Really close to Durban Airport, easy to find and near the motorway, beaches, shops and restaurants and yet in a safe oasis of calm. The perfect place to start or end a holiday in South Africa. The eco estate has wonderful walks and the facilities on the estate are excellent with small buck wandering round at will. We cannot recommend this house highly enough. We'll be back!!

Idyllic retreat in an eco estate with the most wonderful hosts
A much needed escape from the bustle of city life, my family and I spent 6 magical days at Indlwana - a stunning, spacious hollywood-style pad with huge balcony and pool nestled in the lush greenery of the eco estate (you wouldn't believe it's only 20 mins drive from Durban airport!) The rooms were immaculate, set off by the sophisticated african interiors. Simbithi eco estate has everything on your door step, from the wildlife native to that area, to Shaka beach which is a walk away with an amazing tidal pool, there is also a great country club within the estate, equipped with golf course, spa, communal pool, tennis courts and restaurants. Balito is a 5 minute drive away with great food spots and a brand new shopping mall, so you are never stuck for things to do. Our stay was made extra special by amazing hosts Terry and Paul who went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Also a big thank you to Phyllus and Beki who keep Indlwana looking at it's best. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat and we will definitely be returning! Thanks again Terry and Paul

FABULOUS!
Simbithi is a lovely, relaxing and safe place to stay with great amenities and a stones throw from shops, restaurants/bars and the beach. As for the house, what's not to love! It has everything to offer with loads of space inside and outside with great views of a forest. We were extremely well looked after by Phyllis on our two week stay and didn't want to leave.

Map
About the neighbourhood
Discover the South African coastal town of Ballito nestling between the green rolling hills of the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast, and the blue rolling waves of the warm Indian ocean. Experience some of the many diverse pursuits and visit enchanting locations within easy reach or simply relax on the golden sandy beaches to soak up the African sun. With Gateway The Theatre of Shopping and La Lucia Mall just 30 minutes down the road towards Durban, you could not wish for more. For the brave there is the Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom about 20 minutes away, and for those who enjoy an even wilder life, there are fantastic game reserves, nature eco trails and excellent bird watching north of Ballito... BEACHES Willards Beach is the main bathing beach with very popular surfing and body boarding spots 'Bog' & 'Surfers' to the south and 'Sunrise' to the north. These beaches are protected by shark nets and have qualified life guards on duty during the day. Don't forget the sun cream! A 15 minute walk south of Willards Beach you will come across Clarke Bay with its rocky pools on either side of this sandy bay. Lifeguards and shark nets are provided for your protection at this beach as well. Due south of Clarke Bay you will find Ballito's Tidal Pool built on Ballito Point in between the rocks. Here you should have a very reinvigorating dip as fresh sea water flows into the pool on each high tide. You will also notice a variety of small fish while swimming in the pool. (Caution should be taken when there is heavy surf action). Ballito Point at times has a good left break for the surfers into Salmon Bay.
