Every thing was absolutly fantastic from the service, most beautiful room. And personal attention from Coleen & Suzanne. I can only mention that you must consider putting a fridge in the room i stayed in. Love you guys.

Short but sweet, we really enjoyed our stay at the guest house, the service was outstanding and the room was very clean, spacious and modern. We were there for the Comrades marathon which meant a very early start which was dealt with by the staff in a friendly and efficient manner.

A small and comfortable guest house. Personalised service, great location and very comfortable rooms. This was my fourth trip. Definitely value for money. The mother and daughter team make you feel at home.

We spent five nights here and would return again. Coleen and Suzanne are warm hosts to an immaculate and serene modern home in an upscale area of Durban. The breakfasts and coffee are first class. Good restaurants are a ten minute walk away. We took taxis to the beach and downtown.

Always wonderful to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay with us and that you enjoyed our beachfront as much as we do. Weather is perfect, sun is out and the surf is up. More

Very nice accommodations and service. My only two criticisms are: 1) the ocean view was very slight and 2) the property is located pretty far from the beach. However, it is very close to Florida Avenue, where there are lots of restaurants and night life.

Good value and very professional and friendly staff. Thanks for a lovely stay. Dinner would be a lovely addition to your services offered and perhaps more breakfast options. Overall one of the best places I have stayed in for a long time!

Thank you, we had a wonderfully relaxed night in very comfortable accommodation in a forest like ambience. The breakfast was delicious. Even the very loud broadcast of the neighbour's domestic embroilment at 8.00 am did not spoil the atmosphere - in fact was quite entertaining. We'll be back.
