Great water pressure, beautiful bath tub. Tina and her husband were so accommodating and friendly. Right when we got there she arranged for a... 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. 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.
