The property is in a convenient location in a safe neighbourhood with secure parking and easy access. It was no problem to come and go in the evening and in the morning breakfast was prompt, delicious and fresh.

I found the accommodation to be clean and welcoming. Modern, yet tranquil. Very friendly owner. Food was fresh and tasteful. WiFi didn't work, which may have been a blessing, cause I enjoyed the evening out on the balcony, with the smell of the ocean and a breeze through what little hair I have left, with 3 daughters in my life....

We had a fantastic time at the Umbrella Tree House! As a family we stayed in the self-catering cottage that was perfect for our needs. The rooms (all with en-suite bathrooms) were tidy with beautiful sea views and had everything we needed - clean bedding, towels, TV , air-con, etc. I felt safe going for my daily jogs in the...

I left my passport behind and 3 days later I called to check if I'd left it at Umbrella Tree. They phoned back and had found it. I was so relieved and thankful for the good service :) this is for the character limit

Lovely spacious, clean room with aircon and flat screen TV with distant sea views. Adequate breakfast was served on the outside deck. There is small lounge area with another TV which can be used. The use of the kitchen was helpful. Cupboard space is limited. Use of pool was not mentioned on arrival but is available for guests. The B&B... More

Thanks to Lesley you really made it a lovely stay. Thank you. I would recommend Umbrella Tree House. The room was lovely. Loved the sea view and it was close to the office and to the shops. Have already recommend to a number of people that I know.

My lady and I spent a few relaxing days in Durban this past July, and were wonderfully accommodated at this lovely B&B. The room was immaculate and there is enough privacy for you to feel like you are tucked away in a quiet, and beautiful nook in Durban. The amazingly convenient location of this B&B needs to be noted.

We have enjoyed two stays at Umbrella Tree House. I love that you are not confined to a room as with most BnBs. Tv lounge area and kitchen make one feel at home. Lesley is an incredibly friendly host and very easy to chat to.
