Perfect for anyone who wants to relax and unwind in a safe, happy and friendly environment.

A popular and long standing family run establishment (est. 1999), we offer warm hospitality, a great atmosphere and are ideally located just 50 m from the beach at Ansteys Beach on the Bluff – a leafy suburb 15 km south of Durban, and 40 km from King Shaka Airport.

Set over three properties with a lovely tropical garden and a swimming pool, we offer :
• 11 thoughtfully decorated fully equipped Self-Catering Apartments (7 with sea views, 4 with garden views)

Ideal home base as we are close to many shops, shopping centres and restaurants, as well as all the major tourist attractions in KZN such as uShaka Marine World, Suncoast Casino, the ICC and the Sports Stadiums.

For our business clients, we are within close proximity to all the industrial centres – Jacobs, Maydon Wharf, Prospecton, Clairwood, Bayhead, Wentworth.

Experience our beautiful unspoilt and lifeguard protected beaches, warm seawater all year round, good swimming and surfing beaches, kiddies paddling pools at Ansteys and at Brighton Beach, a lovely tidal pool and amazing rock pools to explore at low tide. Fun for everyone!

Take an early morning stroll to the beach, armed with a steaming cup of coffee or tea to watch the ocean come alive with the most spectacular sunrises. More often than not the dolphins will delight you with their playful antics and the whales are a regular spectacular sight at Anstey’s Beach.

Relax by the poolside in our tropical garden, or go for a late afternoon swim in the sea or walk on the beach.

Ansteys is unique in that we encourage and enjoy a great cosmopolitan atmosphere – international travelling backpackers, South African holidaymakers, business people, contract workers – all get along and it makes for a good, happy mix.

We look forward to welcoming you – Tash, Rudy and the Ansteys Team.
