Extremely restful coming from Johannesburg just what we needed. Amazing location with all the elements sea, privacy, mountain and forest in the heart of nature. The house was extremely comfortable and provided everything we needed. Listening to the sea on your doorstep and having new surprises every day either dolphins playing in the bay or the dassies sunning themselves on the rocks was a wonderful treat. Stargazing at night whilst enjoying our braai on the deck with a glass of wine after a day out and about was really the best way to end each day.

From the first glance we fell in love with Ballots. Truly a hiding place between the trees. The house is very well-appointed,all views are unique and the louries that come for fruit were an absolute highlight. We will definitely be back and stay longer. We could drive the road relatively comfortably with our rental car, but next time we will be ready with all our stock so we can stay in the house and not drive in and out.

The Ballots Treehouse is an amazing place to stay at. it is surrounded by nature. you have your own beach. The view is amazing. You feel like being on another planet. a very green planet. The house itself is beautifully furnished. We loved it and we want to come back one day.

Private, peaceful and perfect. What an amazing place to relax, unwind and enjoy endless mountain, river and ocean views…all from the same deck! Definitely a hidden gem not to be missed and one that we’ll return to as often as we can.

What a magnificent piece of South Africa! The house is private and very well equipped and nobody bothers you there. It is clean and comfortable and quite high up the mountain. We went fishing and hiking on the rocks up the right cliff and also went hiking up the river to the small waterfalls. Very relaxing and still close enough to town if you need anything! A wonderful way to start a honeymoon!
