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. The apartment was spacious, with a... More

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!

We spent three restful nights at the Manaar House following our 14 hour flight and domestic transfer and were so pleased that this property was as comfortable and welcoming as described. We enjoyed a hot breakfast daily in the covered area next to the pool and received great advice for daily itineraries and dining. Our hosts were very accommodating and... More

Even though this was a business trip and we could only stay one evening, it was really great. You can see that the whole establishment is looked after with care, love and attention to detail. Close enough to the main beach area in Umhlanga Rocks without paying the high prices for being close to the sea. The personal touch makes... More

We based our booking on the reviews at Tripadvisor and that was no mistake! Had a great stay and we most of all would like to thank the managers for their superb service, advice and arranging our boattrip at St Lucia the next day. We felt really welcome and at home, if only for one night. Great room as well!
