Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Clean and neat with only six rooms, Sea-Rendipity Guest House, previously called Saffron House under the previous owners, is a great place to stay. Well located to the beach, it’s a five minute walk and it’s also only 15 minutes from the Ushaka Marine Airport and an easy half hour to the buzzing hub of Durban’s CBD.        

It’s not what you’d call fancy, but if you’re looking for a good accommodation on the coast then Sea-Renditpity it is. The name, a quirky play on the word serendipity, which means to find something good without looking. Look no further. You’ve found it here. It’s time to “dipity” your toes in the ocean and it sure would be a “pity” if you missed out on it. See what we did there? Anyway. Moving on.

The rooms, each with a private entrance, all open up onto a patio on the immaculate garden and crystal swimming pool.  In a quiet suburb, make yourself at home. That’s how it is here. You may not want to leave, but leave you must, even if only for the day to go to any of the incredible surrounding beaches and to explore.


6 En-suite rooms with shower and washbasin/s (4 rooms have a bath as well); air-conditioning; bar fridge; tea and coffee facilities; free WiFi

Indoor and outdoor dining area; full kitchen with stove, oven, kettle and microwave;lounge; TV; outside patio with seating; fire place/ barbeque area; bar;off-street parking


When in Salt Rock, you’ll be wanting to spend time at the beach. Take a five minute stroll from the guesthouse. Go swimming. Catch a tan. There are numerous beaches in and around the area. Shaka’s Rock, Sheffield Beach, Willard Beach and Thompson Nay Beach to name a few. Ballito hosts some of the finest.

Enjoy the Dolphin Coast. Go walk on the promenade to see the Umhlanga Lighthouse. Go fishing. Play golf. There are numerous spas too. Go horse riding on the beach and in the hills. Go scuba diving, on a cultural trail, there’s the Durban Botanical Gardens and Stephward Estate for orchids and exotic plants. Ushaka Marine World is more than just an aquarium. Go shopping there are loads of nearby malls and shopping centres as well as markets.  

Dining is an activity on its own. There are loads of cafés and restaurants. Seafood is amazing and you might like to try bunny chow (a favourite bread and curry dish of Durban).

There’s no shortage of things to do. Whether you wish to soak up the sun, go explore or head into the CBD. You’ll have more than enough options to choose from and enough to fill your days.
