Spacious room and excellent service, guest house is located in a very nice area, Close to the beach and good starting point to explore Durban and surrounding, recommended to hire a car to get around. Individual breakfast service, lovely garden and swimming pool.

Always a great place to stay and will definitely go back again. Perhaps a small fridge the rooms would be nice so that we can keep some cold drinks / water and little nibbles in the room. Lovely place.

allthough only one night, it was very relaxing and beautiful. The beach promenade with its cafe's and restaurans is in walking distance. The area is silent (though some dogs needed to bark at each other during the morning..). Easy reach to King Shaka Airport.

We stayed here for three nights as part of a little tour of SA. Even from the initial booking, at short notice, Lesley was so helpful in making sure everything was sorted for us, as we were travelling with a young baby. We were going self catering, and the from we had was fantastic. As soon as we entered we... More

This is the only B & B I've returned to, despite there being several others at pretty much the same location. The main reason - the hostess. Ever so helpful, ever so easy to chat to. Great. On the practical side of things, it does have walking distance to shops, reasturants and beach, the least noisy A/C I encountered on... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and we felt us very good. The view over Umhlanga was stunning. We enjoyed the breakfast and the walk down to the village. So we didn't use the car, when we went out at night.
