About The Saffron House

The Saffron House is the perfect place for both travellers and business persons alike, located just 400 metres from the beach and 30 minutes from the vibrant heart of Durban in KwaZulu Natal.

Accommodation


Each of our elegant en-suite, air conditioned bedrooms have cool cotton percale linen, bath robes and private entrance onto a patio area with access to the sparkling pool. Each room is equipped with a mini bar, DSTV (satellite), complimentary tea and coffee and complimentary toiletries.

Facilities

Relax in the spacious living areas with comfy sofa’s and lots of books, where we won’t crowd you or fuss. Our hospitality is genuine and our guesthouse is run personally by us. Our guesthouse is your home.

Also perfect for business use with 24 hour internet access. Close enough to Durban and Umhlanga to be there in 30 minutes. Our breakfast starts at 7.00am so you won’t have to rush.

We can organise dolphin boat rides which launch from the beach, you can also watch dolphins from the beach and whales in season, Quad biking, micro-light flights and deep sea fishing for you. We will also arrange airport transfers and drop off collection to and from local restaurants.

Nearby

Salt Rock beach is officially open and looking great. Walk to this protected swimming beach in less than five minutes (400m) for a swim in the warm Indian Ocean. You can take a long beach walk and stop for lunch at one of the local bars or restaurants.

Visit the many heritage sites in the area and learn about the Zulu culture and their king Shaka. The Kingdom “three cultures in one estate” is right on our doorstep, Shakaland is approximately 1 hrs drive and the valley of a thousand hills also approximately 1 hour.

Golf

Enjoy Golf? We are just minutes from some of South Africa’s finest golf courses. Zimbali, Prince’s Grant and Mount Edgecombe. Forgotten your clubs? No problem we can arrange hire for you.

Enjoy the dolphin coast all year round with average temperatures between 18 degrees in winter to 25 degrees in summer and only 900mm of rain. We hope The Saffron House will be a place to remember long after your return home, and we hope you will recommend us to your friends and business colleagues.

Verified reviewexcellent

We stayed at The Saffron House for one night in April 08 and it was a perfect choice. It was easy to find from the motorway and Ian and Jenny were most welcoming. The rooms were modern, spacious and spotlessly clean. The attention to detail was meticulous. There were many restaurant choices within a few minutes and our rooms were well stocked with plenty of local information. Breakfast was plentiful and varied and we finished our stay with a five-minute stroll to possibly the best beach in the southern hemisphere! Durban airport was an easy 40-minute drive. We would highly recommend The Saffron House.
