What our guests have to say


The hosts Kim and Bob as well as Truelove made our stay very pleasant. We really enjoyed every minute.

Horst from Germany

Kim responded quickly to any queries I had, was super friendly and gave recommendations about the area. There was a fridge and a TV in the room (and even had kyknet as one of the channels). Good breakfast!.


he Room Was Exceptionally Clean And The Staff Caring And Attentive. Very Friendly Too. The Breakfast Was Fresh And Satisfying ♥️


I have been around in Southafrica for about ten times now, staying for long periods, and visiting Cape Town, Pretoria, Hout Bay, Stellenbosch, Johannesburg. This is the best place I been on. I wish I had known about before, now we only had time for four day, before heading back to Mozambique. And honestly, this is not for Kim and Bob are so pleasant people – even though they are -, and I do normally not answer on these kind of requests, to judge the different restaurants or hotels, but this time it is absolutely necessary. If me and my wife comes back to SouthAfrica, this is the place we would book. For weeks!

Dennis from Sweden

I loved the location…close to the beach and very quiet. Very good, quiet a/c and a fridge. Lovely private patio. Good breakfasts and friendly hosts. A great stay.

Rosalind from United Kingdom

Mycket trevligt och proffsigt bemötande. rummet inbjudande, och frukosten mycket bra. pool med solstolar.

Yvonne from Sweden

A home away from home, close to intimate beaches away from the crowds. Spectacular service, friendly and accommodating. Well done, Kim, Bob and Truelove!

Play Golf

Golf Coast

Golf, golf and more golf!

Southbroom Golf Club has many friends and admirers from all over South Africa and the World. It is a course that receives many favourable mentions regularly in golfing magazines.

The Southbroom Golf Course is one of the finest golf courses to be found anywhere in KwaZulu Natal and the views from the course are magnificent with beach and breaker views from the 4th and 5th Tees. The Vervet monkeys are often at play and may also catch your attention (careful, heads up!) as you play around the course. If fortunate, you may also see one of the shy Duikers (particularly along the 17th) that forages along behind the monkeys.

Derek James, the Professional, is the only Pro to have achieved the double Accolade of PGA Pro of the Year and PGA Teaching Pro of the Year. Derek and with his wife Sheena, run the friendliest and best equipped Pro shop along the coast.

The KwaZulu-Natal South Coast is commonly referred to as the “Golf Coast”, blessed with nine superb 18-hole Golf Courses.

Dolphin / whale watching

Southern Right Whales and Humpback Whales appear around the South African coastline from May to December and can often be seen close inshore and near river mouths. Southbroom has many elevated vantage points from which to enjoy the whales. Several coastal dolphin species can be seen throughout the year, especially during the annual sardine run.

Bird watching

Southbroom is a bird lover’s paradise with a myriad of habitats to explore.  The South Coast Birding Route comprises of a variety of habitats from coastal and wetland environments to forest, woodland and grassland. Above all it is the forest birding to be had here that is unparalleled.

Southern Africa has two distinct forest avifaunas, namely the Afromontane forests and the rich tropical forest community that extends down the coast. It is only in the region of the South Coast Birding Route that these two diverse forest assemblages overlap and for this reason birding in this area is extremely profitable.

Specials including the northern most population of Knysna Woodpecker and other highly sought after species such as Magpie Mannikin and African Broadbill.
