From the owner

C'est La Vie Beach House is situated in one of the most exclusive suburbs, known as the ‘Clifton’ of KwaZulu-Natal - Sheffield Beach.

Sheffield Beach is a rather small beach compared to the others in the area, but it has some beautiful sheltered coves and superb rock pools which are well known for snorkeling and spear fishing (permit required).

This lovely beach situated just north of Salt Rock and only 10 minutes from Ballito, is one of the best places to enjoy a day in the sun. The rocks of Sheffield Beach give way to a perfect bathing area and the coastline offers some amazing sightings of dolphins, or whales during the whale season (August).

There are also excellent fishing (permit required) and diving spots at Christmas Bay, immediately north of Sheffield Beach.

C’est La Vie Beach House is situated one row back from the beach with a path directly in front of the house, leading to a private beach. It has an elevated 180 degree view of the Indian Ocean, which gives you amazing views from three of the bedrooms. The lounge and bar area have stacking doors, allowing sea views, even from the kitchen.

The house is self-catering and serviced daily on request.

This five-bedroom house is suitable for a family holiday, weekend getaways and corporate functions.

My stay was nothing short of spectacular. From the scenery to the facilities to the close proximity to the beach, it was superb. A great place for a family getaway.

Owner's reply:
I am surprised that you were disappointed when you visited in April. It is now August, I would have loved to have responded earlier. We have had many good reviews. Please refer to reviews page on TripAdvisor website. The neighbors are not normally a problem, you must have caught them on a special occasion. It is normal in South Africa to have staff living on the property in their own separate accommodation. This provides a great service to the guests. Security is exceptional. The house is equipped with a full alarm system linked to 24 hour armed response. All equipment is new and in good working order. If there are any problems I rely on guests advising me timeously of any problem. Regards Charmainne
