Both my kids and I really enjoyed our stay at Shaka's Seat. It was home away from home. We were in a cosy little self catering cottage away from the hotel. ...this gave the boys the freedom to be just be free. The beach was literally across the road....we didn't need a vehicle. Our stay was pleasant, enjoyable and relaxing. Sandy and Dick are wonderful hosts. I have already recommended this place to family and friends and I would definitely go back again.

I would definitely return to Shaka's Seat on any future visits to the North Coast.  Clean, comfortable unit with glorious sea views, with the best beach access just across the road.

We only stayed one night for a wedding in the area but was a great stay.

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely facility. The hosts were friendly and attentive to all our needs. The Beach Suite is beautiful, clean and well equipped. We saw lots of dolphins from our wooden deck. We will definitely return.
