Accomodation was neat and very comfortable.Nice balcony with great sea view.Road is quite busy but did not bother us.Prices are reasonable too.Enjoyed the communal braai area and nice pool area.The security is good but a bit prison like as you have to keep opening and closing the trellidor to get access to your room.The caretaker was very friendly and attentive to our needs.

Our family of 4 stayed in the Garden Cottage for 2 weeks.  The fridge in the unit was the size of a bar fridge, which could only store food for 2 days.  The unit had no natural sunlight in it, except for perhaps an hour in the bathroom.  There was no view of the sea from our unit & there were only 4 spoons, forks, knives & teasppons, even though there were 5 dinner plates & many glasses.  Also, we had to ask for ovenware to be supplied, so that we could use the oven, as well as a hairdryer & smooth edge knife for cutting vegetables & there was no place in the unit to dry...

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.
