Sunshowers Ballito – the perfect self-catering, seaside accommodation in Ballito

Sunshowers Ballito

I recently had the opportunity to spend a night at the Sunshowers Ballito during my recent trip to Ballito – as part of my tour throughout the Kwa-Zulu Natal.

This self-catering accommodation offering is located within a gated group of holiday houses. Upon my arrival, I was instantly blown away by the views that were on offer.

We immediately went upstairs on the balcony area and adored the view and the sound of the irrepressible waves that were found.

Once we had soaked in the beauty of the nearby beach, we knew that there was a lot more exploring that needed to be done. I noticed the amount of natural light that is found inside the establishment.

This is due to the stacked glass doors that lead to the beach, which can be opened up and allows visitors to soak in the sea breeze. Additionally, a large dome, situated on the roof, contributes to the lighting.

Sunshowers is a 4-Star Self-Catering accommodation offering that is located along the pristine shoreline of Ballito, along the Dolphin Coast in Kwa-Zulu Natal. This town is 40km north of Durban.

This establishment offers the perfect location, views and ultimate comfort. A number of amazing restaurants and activities can be found and enjoyed nearby.

Accommodation at Sunshowers Ballito

This establishment can accommodate up to seven adults at a time, making it a great holiday retreat. Each of their three rooms are individual in nature. I had the pleasure of spending the night in their main room.

Their main room has a clear view of the ocean and the sound of the waves breaking was a constant reminder of the location that I found myself in.

The second bedroom consists of two single beds and the third bedroom has a king-sized bed with an additional bed on pedestals.

With 180 degree views of the ocean, few establishments can boast a better seaside escape.

All of their beds are fitted with white percale linen and it made for a comfortable stay. Visitors can also expect ample cupboard space which further adds to the fact that longer stays are ideal.

Facilities at Sunshowers Ballito

This establishment comes equipped with all of the essentials one would expect as well as a few extras!

Visitors can expect a fully furbished kitchen area which includes a fridge, tumble dryer, oven and microwave to name but a few. Coffee and tea making facilities are also found within this vicinity.

A pool table can be found in the central area of the guest house and makes for a great activity for families or groups of friends wishing to enjoy each other’s company.

It was quickly evident that the Sunshowers Ballito takes the security of their visitors seriously. With a number of keys for each section of the house, combined with the security alarm and gate facilities, we definitely felt safe during our stay.

We were surprised to see some board games and puzzles in the lounge area, which was something I had not seen before at any previous stays. It thus removes the difficulty of finding something to do during those rainy days.

Complimentary Wi-Fi and a full DStv package allows for their guests to sit back and relax.

The unit is air-conditioned throughout, which was something that I particularly appreciated as it was a cooker of a day.

The veranda area of the establishment can be opened up and allows for easy beach access. This area has braai facilities and an eight seater dining table additional to the eight-seater just beside the pool table delegated area.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
