Very clean and comfortable. Quiet residential neighbourhood. Well stocked honest bar. Very spacious. Very good restaurants in short driving distance (Little Havannah). We had the 2 bedroom apartment. Unfortunately, you have to go through the second bedroom to get from the master bedroom to the bathroom.

We were made to feel very welcome, and the room was fantastic. Helpful staff and nice touches such as the honesty bar make this a wonderful guest house. Breakfast on the patio was fantastic, and the location makes it very easy to shop in La Lucia and explore the beach at Umhlanga.
