When working on a project, we have a vision, especially for construction and home improvement. It’s like a picture of your dream home, and you will need someone to bring that vision to life. Mark Leslie-Smith Architect is a boutique and personalised architectural design business. With 26 years of experience in all forms of architecture, including luxury houses, commercial buildings and game lodges, they specialise in attention to detail and keeping up with the latest trends and technology within a manageable budget. Your dream doesn’t have to break the bank!

We all agree that a durable and quality plumbing system is integral to any project. The material used and the installation must be reliable and meet the relevant standards, from the piping to the taps. Luckily, Plumblink Ballito has got you covered in that department. Their staff are expertly trained and offer the best advice and solutions possible. Plumblink prides itself on being customer-centric, offering customer service that is a cut above the rest. Their Ballito branch now has a fresh look. Visit them during your next plumbing run for an all-new shopping experience with local and international brands at hand.

Now, is our exterior and interior accents missing something? Let’s add some details to it to distinguish ourselves from those around us. That is where The Sandstone Story comes in. Starting up in Ballito, they have been providing their services for 18 years. They supply and install quality natural stones all over South Africa and across our borders. Their exceptional service and products have become a household name in the Dolphin Coast and beyond since expanding internationally. With over 10 000 jobs under their belt, they do not intend to stop anytime soon, and the only way is forward towards more years of quality service and products.

In Ballito, we experience especially warm summers, and sometimes you just need to jump in the pool after a long and hot day. Pool Spa and Filtration is now in Ballito, and with world-leading brands to offer, they are able to assist you with an existing or a new design. They have also been the leading fountain engineer for over 40 years, specialising in water feature design. Their expert services also include the filtration for koi ponds, lakes, pools and other water features.

Swimming sometimes feels like it requires just a bit too much effort. On those days, what is needed is to wind down, let our muscles relax and destress. Bringing the relaxation to you is Superior Spa. Their name suggests that they are market leaders in innovation, the lowest running costs, the most hygienic filtration system, and the most technologically advanced spa systems. A spa is so much more than a place to warm up and wind down during the winter. They’re where family and friends gather, and relaxation and rejuvenation take place.

The devil’s in the details, especially within a home. The finishes can make all the difference, taking space from plain to decorative. Granite Innovations, an award-winning granite manufacturer, is available to help you give your space the touches it needs. They are a dynamic company driven by success and the desire to reach greater goals. Fuelled by their vision to become the preferred supplier of granite, marble, and engineered stone, they strive to serve their best products and advice to all their clients.

Speaking of giving spaces a unique personality, Inside Out Interiors offers a comprehensive range of interior design services for corporate to commercial and residential clients. Their style blends classic and contemporary European and local design influences. They combine elements from these influences to create a unique and eclectic mix. They even have custom furniture services to give your spaces that personal touch.

It takes an exceptional team to manage the components of your interior and exterior features. ComProp, as the duly appointed managing agent, has been proudly associated with the commercial and industrial growth of Ballito and its surroundings since 2005, specialising in sales, rentals, storage, management and maintenance and is excited to be involved in the Centre of Design.
