This was perfect for us. The house was quiet and secure, located in a safe area. The room was lovely and immaculate. Prior to arrival I asked a sightseeing question. Lee and Bill put me in touch with a fantastic travel agent who was able to provide exactly what I wanted despite it being a little unusual. Lee and Bill... More

Rosetta House has cottages situated around a lush garden in a tranquil setting. The rooms are furnished beautifully. Every detail is in place to make your stay easy and comfortable. Cafe and restaurant-lined Florida Road is just a five minute walk away. Best of all is the lovely proprietor, Lee, and her husband, Bill. Lee is a gourmet cook and... More

Old world historic house.....Calm and safe. We stayed in the garden rooms. Two rooms, two en suites and a connecting kitchen and veranda for reading a book or just connecting with each other. It is quiet, fully equipped from ear buds to aircon. Every possible need catered for. This B and B is within walking distance of Florida, Innes road... More

This is a long overdue review, and for that I apologize to Lee and Bill, as they were wonderful hosts. We were travelling to Africa for the first time from Seattle, and Lee did a great job of answering numerous questions prior to our arrival. They really help us to hit the ground running. Lee recommended the township tour with... More

Lee and Bill make you feel at home and offer a wealth of knowledge. The breakfast starts your day right and there's so much to do in Durban. We did the township tour the first day based on Lee's recommendation and we learned so much and it helped put the rest of our 3-week the trip in perspective. The accommodations... More

We were so welcomed by Bill and Lee from the moment we arrived. We stayed in the room situated inside their home and really felt very welcomed. The room was well provisioned with a spacious bathroom and huge bed with plenty of storage space and nice furnishings. There is also off road parking behind a secure gate. The breakfasts were...

Rosetta House is truly a home away from home. Warmly welcomed by Bill and Lee my stay was very comfortable and relaxing in their beautiful B&B. The finest attention to detail in their decor and the beautiful garden made it a pure pleasure. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious and made with lots of love. Well done on outstanding service!
