What a lovely place conveniently located on the hills outside Durban. The hosts are fantastic people and the dinners are great. A good breakfast and comfortable rooms all at a very good price. Definitely my go to place when in Durban.

Villa Brae is located in a very secluded area, surrounded by trees and shrubs, the house is an old character house, large rooms, high ceilings and a wide spiral staircase as a centre piece as you enter the house. The hosts Rod and Karen were helpful and attentive to any of our needs, the room was large with all you... More

I've only spent one night here. It will unfortunately not make it to the top of my list as it is perhaps not entirely to my taste. I have to be upfront from the start and make it clear that I am not a dog person and this obviously influences my review significantly. If your an animal (specifically dog lover)... More

Had a great stay, the hosts were very friendly and accomodating. It was a bit tricky to find the place though.I think putting up some form of signage close to the main road would help.Great value for money!!

I spent two nights at Villa Brae recently and highly recommend it as a stopover for travellers with business in and around the Kloof area. Rod and Karen are charming hosts and there is a sense of tranquillity to be found in this lovely old home set in its leafy rambling garden. The breakfasts are delicious and generously portioned and... More

Villa Brae is one of those rare B&B's, where one truly feels you can hide out, hang out, and really escape from the rat race - yet, it's so close to Durbs, the highways, etc. I would definitely stay here again, next time I've got to be anywhere close to DBN... Rod and Karen went out of their way to... More

Had a great stay at Villa Brae for 2 nights with my husband. The room was nice and spacious and had a huge balcony. Karen and Rod really made me, my mom and bridesmaids feel comfortable as we got dressed for my wedding, and treated my hubby and I like family when we stayed there the next day. If I... More

Stayed at Villa Brae for only one night. We usually down in Durban and then drive up to Pinetown for business. Much more relaxing to stay up in Pinetown. Pay attention when going to Villa Brae from Durban's side as you need to turn over and go back on the M13. Directions on website is good so is easy to... More

I want to start off by saying that I completely disagree with one of the previous reviews! I was whisked away here as a surprise. What was more of a surprise was how this gorgeous place had been only 20minutes away and I never knew about it! After driving down the long driveway through the grounds we were met with... More
