Kites View Bed and Breakfast is situated on one of the higher crests of Kwa-Zulu Natal’s premier holiday city, overlooking the warmest, bluest ocean and lush greenness that is La Lucia, as far as the eye can see - the distance lends enchantment to the view. With four luxurious sea facing bedrooms, which extend onto the balcony, you could not pick a more tranquil and pleasant view point to sit and watch the kites and other birds glide through the air, sip on a glass of wine or cup of coffee, or to just sit quietly and reflect.

Our recently built up market guest house – though professional, still has a warm touch with a stylish contemporary influence and caters for both the corporate market and the holiday maker. When it comes to service, we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and the importance of personal touch which is characteristic of Kites View Bed and Breakfast.

• Extra length beds
