We spent a night at Manaar House, we received a very warm and friendly welcome from Wayne and Tina. Manaar House has a fantastic tranquillity about it and set in a quiet neighbourhood, with a beautifully lush garden and pool. The rooms are immaculately clean, and the service and breakfast were fantastic. Thank-you for the peaceful stay.

It is a very lovely b&b, like staying at someone's villa but totally private. Jack and Mark are wonderful hosts. They gave excellent suggestions for dinner and and after drink, and mark even gave us a drive around the little village before dropping us off at our choice of dinner place. Their pool and verandah made a beautiful relaxing place... More

We booked Manaar house following good reviews and its short distance from king Shaka Airport. So glad we did because it was absolutely the right choice! We felt very welcome as our hosts were genuinely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast on the veranda by the pool. Our room was great, with its own little covered seating area... More

We chose Manaar House because it´s only a short drive from King Shaka Airport. But we´ll remember our stay mostly because of the great hosts. Although it was our first stay at Manaar House Jack and Mark gave us the feeling of coming home. They we´re always on hand, when we needed their help, whether it was simple restaurant recommendation,... More

What a lovely place to stay! Short walk to the beach yet quiet and secluded. Very comfortable room and surroundings, and excellent breakfast! Tina and Wayne are superb hosts - they made us feel very welcome, and were always on hand to help with any queries and advice. Thanks for a great stay! Highly recommended!!

We chose Manaar House for our annual visit back to South Africa to visit family and friends. The location is perfect and central. If visiting Durban, Umhlanga is the only place to be with it's beautiful town/restaurants/beach. A short drive down the road to restaurants and beach and same distance to Gateway Shopping Mall.

This was by far the best stay of our trip! The hosts (Wayne and Tina) were just great - they made us feel very welcome and they were super helpful with everything! The breakfast was superb - a wide variety, enough of everything and the fruit was extremely fresh! We will definitely be returning!
