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.

We only stayed one night, but received friendly, excellent service. The B&B is located very close by to Florida Road, so it is well positioned if you want to visit any of the great restaurants or bars on Florida Road. The breakfast was also very good, and we had more than enough to eat. Nicely decorated, spacious and clean room... More

Stayed here for about 10 days in Jan 2014. I have stayed at a few B&Bs in Durban and this is the best. I had an upstairs room with a view over the city. The room was excellent - large and comfortable with a lovely modern en-suite bathroom; air-conditioned and free wi-fi. On site secure parking. Very nice breakfast and... More
