It pains me to say that our stay at Ballito Sands penthouse (upper) left a bad taste in our mouth. Admin staff were not there to meet us with the keys and we were forced to wait for close on an hour to be let in. The domestic cleaning was extremely sub-par and nothing was explained to us in terms of keys, use of jacuzzi, etc. No one bothered to even introduce themselves to us. The unit itself, although well positioned, needs serious maintenance work. There is a great deal of rust on appliances and furnishings, no shade is provided on the patio and the lock on the patio door was broken. It can be a lovely place but I would not recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing time away due to the aforementioned, easily remedied issues.

We had a great time at the penthouse. Enjoyed the sea views, the privacy on the big balcony and the jacuzzi, had a braai and watched the sun rise over the seas. We stayed at the upper unit. I recommend the upper unit for any couple who want to enjoy the best sea views in Ballito and watch the sun rise over the seas in the morning.

Great space, modern fittings and wonderful sea views. Only hiccup is the Solar Geyser, we had some issues with showering in the evening hence the four star rating, other then that a pristine choice, I will revisit.

Lovely accomodation with perfect sea views.
A really nice and spacious unit, however some TLC is needed. Too much rust in all the cupboards and lots of the utensils have rust on them.
Unit is serviced daily but no very well.
Needs a good springclean!

We would like to thank SafariNow staff for the great time we had during our stay at Ballito Sands Penthouse.
The friendliness and helpfull cleaning lady was a pleasure to have around.
Mostly we would like to thank Snow for meeting us with the keys as well as assisting with the jaccuzi

Really a wonderful apartment with lots of space, great view and close to the beach. We had seven people staying in the apartment and found it to be very comfortable for all. A few minor additions in the form of new bathroom dustbins and places to hang towels in the bathroom was our only small gripe. We would definitely go back!!

My husband and I stayed in the Ballito Sands Upper Penthouse for a week in December 2015 and we enjoyed every second of it.
You have unobstructed sea views from anywhere in the apartment and the deck and jacuzzi is just amazing - such a bonus.
This is really the place to be in Ballito for any couple looking for a breakaway.
The cleaning lady (Lilly) was there daily to keep the apartment clean and the owner (Snow) went out of his way to accommodate us.
We will definitely be back !
Excellent penthouse in a great location

We stayed for 8 nights in the upper penthouse. Wow! We had a wonderful stay. The penthouse was furnished with everything we needed, the Jacuzzi was a bonus and the location perfect.
You have unobstructed sea views from just about everywhere in the penthouse! The cleaning lady did her part to wash the dishes and made sure we always had clean towels and linen.
This was good value for our money and we would definitely return.
Most Enjoyable holiday

tgThortoughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment Thspacious and most comfortable.
Views magnificent, saw Dolphins daily also a few Whales.
The cleaner very friendly and efficient, the complex janitor always very helpful.
Odd things in the apartment do need some attention but they certainly didn't spoil our nine night stay in any way.

We had a great stay at the penthouse . Keys were easily obtained and great communication from Snow .
The Penthouse had a great layout and although were only two this unit is perfect for a few friends or larger family . The unit was neat but need some maintenance as some fittings in the bathrooms were broken or missing . The kitchen needs a bit of a spring clean .Although Lilly cleans everyday it needs a good thorough clean.The complete block of apartments can also do with some maintenance .Besides a these small things we had a great stay and would be back

I am not happy at all with the money we paid compared to the apartment . the weekend was cold they don't have blankets we had to buy our own as the apartment was very cold the aircon apparently does not heat the room it makes the room cool the view was beautiful the dining room has a table and benches which are very dirty it is not looked after well the washing machines have a leak I am not impressed we spoke to the owner because we did not have a cleaning service on Saturday and he told that we should read the terms and conditions as cleaning is not done on weekends they should have advised us Friday the braai grill was very dirty I have been to many places which I paid less and the service was excellent I am really disappointed

Great location, private, spacious with spectacular ocean views. Stayed in the upper penthouse for 2 nights. The apartment is the sole unit on the top floor of the building and gives you a spectacular view of the ocean and the beach. There are no neighbors on either side so you can really enjoy your privacy. Enjoyed the Jacuzzi and the large patio overlooking the ocean.There is a gas braai but it needs to be maintained, cleaned and repaired. Both Snow and Wiseman were very accommodating and helpful.

With a double garage, a lift, a crystal clear swimming pool and some BBQ's on the ground floor level you can spend some quality time listening to the waves.
The apartment on the 5th floor can be reached with a special key which lets you up to the penthouse areas.
There are 4 bedrooms, two with double beds and 2 with singles - ample space for 2 families(8 ppl). The master bedroom and one other main bedroom both have balcony access - I woke up staring straight into the ocean! Awesome!
The kitchen is huge - all utensils are supplied, you don't need to bring a single thing. There is even a separate washing room at the back of the kitchen where you will find a scullery and washing/drying machines.
The balcony is huge - this apartment is basically double the size of the other apartments, with a huge gas BBQ where you can quickly knock up a great meal to enjoy overlooking the granny pool(better to swim here than the main beach, its right in front of this amazing apartment)
I can also say the host (Snow Cogan) was amazing - he sorted the massive TV/DSTV out for us in a minute and if you call him with anything you need he appears out of thin air to make thing happen. Thanks Snow!!
We will be back, no question!

We stayed at the upper penthouse for a weekend. The unit has breathtaking panoramic sea views - there is nowhere from which you cannot see the sea! We loved the Jacuzzi on the balcony (which was kindly heated up ahead of our arrival) - fantastic for sundowners or to cool off during hot days. The unit is well-equipped with modern finishes and is a pleasant stroll away from restaurants and shops. Having no neighbours and nobody above you is another plus! We never wanted to leave and will definitely be back! Thank you to Snow and Wiseman (who found our lost car keys)for the great hospitality.

Beautifully appointed and tastefully furnished very spacious penthouse. The location can hardly be better right at the granny's pool. The views from the huge balcony are magnificent. All in all a perfect place to stay. Very good value for money, as you have 4 large two-person bedrooms and 3 bathrooms plus lots and lots of space. The only draw-back is the wind that you hear blowing through the front door at all times when the weather is a bit choppy.

All I can say is WOW! This penthouse has the most stunning view ever. Our stay at the penthouse was so amazing and couldn't get any better than that. The highlight of our stay was, it doesn't matter in what room we were in we could see the ocean at all times and with the jacuzzi on the patio. Just made the stay even better, to sit in the jacuzzi and see dolphins and whales everyday. Was so amazing.
Thank you so much for a wonderful, relaxing holiday and making our holiday even more special.
I would recommend anyone and everyone to this penthouse for an amazing holiday.
Not quite the exclusive, luxury that one may expect

Great location right on the beach. General decor and layout of the flat was good too... pity about the state of the flat and the building - the finishes in the apartment are shabby, there are no curtains (only blinds which mean that you cannot sleep late) the apartment was absolutely filthy when we arrived, the lift doesn't work (I got stuck in the lift for an hour) and some of the appliances (bedside lamps, braai and dvd machine) weren't in working order. Good service from management company who endevoured to fix as much as they could during our stay. I wouldn't say that the experience was worth the price tag.
Bernadine Spice, South Africa
02 April 2012
A very nice stay apart from the air-conditioner that was not working. Fortunately it was the top floor so we could leave windows and doors open. Attention should be given to finishes, maintenance, given the amount that is paid per day it should be perfect!

The excellent position of the penthouse with the amazing sea and beach views, as well as the easy excess to the penthouse, made it perfectly suitable for the purpose of our visit to Ballito. The several mechanical and electrical concerns that we noticed did not spoil our short stay.

I enjoyed our stay at Ballito Sands Penthouse. The view is really awesome; whether one is on the balcony or inside, you have beautiful view of the beach and ocean. We had a couple of hiccups during our stay. The Jacuzzi gave problems from the first evening so we weren't able to use it. The blinds throughout the bedroom are inappropriate. One wakes up early with light flooding in - so forget about sleeping late. There is also some maintenance that needs to be done throughout. The big plus is that Snow Cogan is very helpful if problems arise. I would definitely return again and recommend it to anyone looking for comfort and location.

We didn't want to come home. Loved the jacuzzi and the now I struggle to get used to my own bed, couch and view here in JHB. Had a lovely time. Would recommend it to anyone that wants a relaxing, beautiful and private holiday.
