The hosts are great, the b&b is beautiful, the jacuzzi is a big bonus and the breakfast is awesome. No negatives here! Everything is perfect, great local amenities if you just wanna chill out and the local gay bar isn't far :)

Had to get away from Jhb and found the guesthouse on the web. Jhb problems followed me and it would've been my worst holiday ever had it not been for my stay at Durban view. Weather was perfect for just lazing in the sun on the roof enjoying the view and serenity. Came back with a winter tan and calm.... More

The location of this guest house is really confusing but it seems to be in a nice area! However we got lost try to find it, and then no one answered the door for 20 min when we arrived. Our hosts Dave and Llewelyn were away getting married in New Zealand, so there were stand-ins to greet us. The rooms... More

This is a friendly place to stay with very good amenities, comfy bed, nice breakfast, safe area, convenient for top restaurants and especially good on the low-down of where to go in Durban. The bathroom has a little too much form and not enough function and the fittings and fixtures in a small number of places are looking a little... More

What a great stay! Our hosts, Llewellyn and Dave made us feel at home. Welcome drinks on the first night with them, and some of the other guests. Close to the city centre, as well as the night life, without being in the noisy zone. Will definitely be back.
