I booked this for a party of 7 fairly elderly (and fussy) English golfers after my local brother in law had visited it. We were not disappointed. We had an excellent stay. All the rooms are beautifully appointed though some are larger than others. All have great bathrooms. The breakfasts were wonderful-great choice of healthy foods and for the hungry... More

From the moment i arrived i was made to feel very welcome. The rooms and bathrooms are very well appointed. The proximity to the beach is also a big plus. Going back with my family in a few months. Thank you to the team at Cowrie Cove for a fantastic stay.

Anyone wanting a quiet but refreshing environment, this is an excellent place to. the place is equipped with the pool and you walk straight to the beach from the back door.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this guest house. We arrived late New Years Eve, and had one of the owners waiting to check us in. The place was great and right next to the coast in a quiet neighbourhood. Breakfast was delicious with a number of choices served in a wonderful setting next to the pool. Our room... More

Thank you for the lovely stay. Will never stay any place else when coming to Durban again. . I will recommend your guest house to all my family and friends in France. Your Guest house was the best we had in South Africa and also the food was great.

Cowrie Cove is a beautiful home which caters for holiday makers and corporate travellers alike. Being greeted by dogs is such a heart warming experience when you are away from your own, they add a welcoming and comfortable dynamic to any place. The room I stayed in was absolutely beautiful with a huge bed , a massive bath and shower,... More

I've visited various establishments in Durban over the years and this is one of the best. I was impressed with the accommodation and friendliness of the staff. I'll definitely be visiting again in the future.

My daughter and I stayed here as part of a side trip en route to safari, and were absolutely delighted with this comfortable, luxurious guest house and the amazing hospitality of Kim, Garth and the entire staff. Almost like staying in your own home, only on the bach along the Indian Ocean. Our room was comfortable and very well appointed,... More

One of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed at. Great people, very accommodating and the rooms are just beautiful....The super short walk to the beach (basically their back yard) was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. Highly recommended.
