The space

Chakas on the sea is a luxury apartment on the top level of a 3 level block set on Chakas Rock beach.

Enter into the open plan lounge, dining and kitchen with large outdoor ballustraded balcony overlooking the Indian Ocean. On entering the unit, it may feel like you are on the upperdeck of a cruise liner on the ocean, as the sea takes up all of your view as you walk through the door.

Fully equipped modern upgraded kitchen which includes a breakfast bar that seats 4. There is also an elegant 6 seater dining table with six chairs.
The lounge area has a LED flatscreen tv with full DSTV satellite television (Premium dtsv on Explorer 2)
Our wifi router is also in the lounge – see further below

Leaving the main living area, the main ensuite bedroom with its new comfy queen size bed is relatively large with 2 armchairs and large dresser. This stunning ensuite also boasts its own private balcony overlooking the ocean below. The ensuite bathroom has a deep soaker tub, vanity and loo – all newly fitted.
The second bathroom has a large shower, vanity and loo. New upgraded bathroom.
There are two further bedrooms with two single beds in each for another 4 people.

All three bedrooms have large remote controlled ceiling fans and in the lounge there is another mobile fan for the summer. Or - open the main sliding doors and the front door and there is a pleasant ocean breeze.

All linen including bath and beach towels are included. Bedrooms all have luxurious cotton or percale cotton linen.

Wifi – There is a wifi router where 5GBs of data is included. Should you require or desire more data, same can be purchased at your cost on a pay as you go basis (Telkom sim card and various bundles available for purchase online). Please let us know if you would not like WIFI.

Cleaning –A daily service of about 2 hours is offered and included in the price (kitchen beds bathrooms are cleaned). Please also advise if you would prefer not to have this service or only on certain days. Daily service cleans do not happen on Sundays and Public holidays.

Parking – the apartment comes with its own dedicated carport. There is also some additional parking in the complex which operates on a first come first served basis. There are also “trailer” parking bays.

Access to the beach – As the beach is onsite (!) - just use the tag provided for access through the side gate of the complex parking area and in 1 minute you are on the beach !

Chakas Rock has its own "Granny Pool" as well as a tidal pool (directly infront of us). The lifeguard operated “swimming” beach is along the stretch of beach at Salt Rock. You can walk (15 minutes) or drive there (5 mins). Alternatively you can drive or get a lift to Thompsons Bay or further down in Ballito there are a myriad of different beaches.
Please note there are very strong currents and riptides and thus it is recommended that “real swimming” is only done at the designated lifeguarded beaches.
Our granny / tidal pools at Chakas Rock have sea urchins in them thus plastic or rubberised shoes or sandals are strongly recommended. You can swim laps in the larger granny pool, snorkel or just float around. Perfect for small children as there are no waves (under adult supervision).
We have an umbrella and beach chairs for your use.
There is otherwise a complex pool in the upper complex on the other side of the road.
Similarly this is also where the braai / barbecue area is - upper complex (coal/ wood fires)
The complex does have a night guard but it is very safe. Just close all doors and windows when leaving the apartment.

Loved our stay at chakas. The beach was on our doorstep! The kids loved playing in the rock pools and the weather was sunny and warm. Our accommodation was clean and the space is welcoming, Melissa was a great host, we will definitely be back.

What a beautiful apartment - so perfectly equipped and easy to live in. Waking up to that amazing view- you could not be closer to the sea. The tidal pool directly below was great and having direct access to the beach made it all so accessible. The pool in the complex was a lovely to chill at in the afternoon. Included wifi of 5 gbs, dstv and daily service was the cherry on the top! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend staying here. Thank you.

What a location! The views from the apartment is breathtaking! We were lucky enough to spot dolphins, whales in the distance and even albatrosses from our verandah. Travelling with children (aged 8 and 9) proximity to the beach was important and the location was ideal! A very short walk down to the rock pools that are perfect for younger kids to explore with the main swimming beach nearby. The apartment is beautifully decorated and extremely clean with everything you need. The living area is very spacious and comfortable in every sense. The master bedroom is large with a small ensuite bathroom. It was a treat to fall asleep with the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks below. Our children stayed on one of the two twin bedrooms that had enough space to be comfortable. As we were there for four nights, I appreciated the amount of cupboard space available to unpack. There is also a clean and reasonably priced laundry service available within walking distance from the apartment. Though we cooked our own meals mostly, Melissa had suggested restaurants in the area and we visited a few. We also popped across the road for a pizza take away one evening. We will definitely return and I can highly recommend Melissa's place!
