Stayed here in 2012, the owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful, the lodgings were very comfortable, private and clean and the place was easy to find. I would stay here again and recommend to everyone!

This is a lovely B & B, with the most helpful managers I've ever come across. Nothing was too much trouble for Tina and Wayne. Our room was spacious and comfortable and well equipped and the public areas were all very comfortable and spacious too. Although not in the centre of town, everything in Umhlanga is only a short drive... More

To relax by the swimming pool with a drink after days filled with golfing,sightseeing etc. was a nice treat. Not to mention those... More
