We had a blast here! After finishing the Sani2c MTB stage race we put our feet up for a few days at Manaar House. We could relax in this stunning home environment. The breakfasts were out of this world and Hermann and Guss went out of their way to accommodate our every need. Situated close to everything, we will definitely... More

We stayed at Manaar House at the end of our holiday to South Africa. The rooms very nicely furnished and the breakfasts are delicious! A very convenient location for a departure from King Shaka International Airport. Hermann went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable, booking dinner at a local restaurant for us. We will certainly be... More

Well, what can we say? The rooms were just right with some lovely and thoughtful touch of placing little things like paracetamols in the bathrooms which I needed very much during our stay at Manaar House. Mark's cooked breakfast was delicious and an artwork in itself - the baked plum and the full English breakfast with crispy bacon. The ambience... More

Manaar House is beautiful everything is tastefully done with good linens and towels, pretty surroundings and a really lovely little pool and patio area. The hosts are friendly and helpful, the breakfasts good. One of the best B&B's I've stayed in .

The Maanaar House is a lovely place. The pool, the jacuzzi and the room, they are beautifull. But in the end it's all about the people. And that's what makes the stay unique: the hosts are great! One of the best experiences in Afrika!

We've just returned from a 4 night stay at Manaar House. If you are looking to stay in the Durban North or Umhlanga area this is the only place to stay. The service we received from Tina and Hermann is what makes this place so special. We also had a gorgeous room with our own private patio. The breakfasts overlooking... More

Many thanks to Jack and Mark for a very warm welcome to their charming place in Umhlanga. Perfect rooms, excellent breakfasts, plans made to resolve problems, in short a professionally run operation centred around the needs of their guests. That is increasingly difficult to find these days, and I wholeheartedly recommend this establishment to all travellers heading for Umhlanga.

I loved Manaar House! It was comfy and relaxing while also feeling like a special luxurious treat. The breakfast was by far the best I had throughout my entire trip. I wish there were more places like this.
