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.

Excellent accommodation and very friendly service by owners. It will assist if a mosquito spray could be available in the rooms. Beautiful views from the room and balcony really add a big plus onto the room!

Thanks so much to you both for the review. Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay :) I used to put Tabard in the rooms for the mosquitoes, but unfortunately the guests helped themselves to it and at R45 a bottle, it was very expensive for me. I do have it available if guests ask. More

I had a short stay but a warm and friendly welcome and exit.I will certainly use them in the future as well. A pleasant place and clean as well to stay in. Very impressive place.Lesley Paterson was also very warm to us and explained everything we wanted to hear about.

We enjoyed our week here. Lesley and staff were very helpful and kind. The room was lovely and spotless, with a balcony from which you can see the sea. Lovely to sit out on a warm evening. We were quite taken with the monkeys that seemed to appear at breakfast time... Looking for fruit. We enjoyed our breakfast out on... More

Everything was just what I needed to take a week break from busy life at home and work. The looks over the sea and admired the sunrizes .Lesley the host to specially have breakfast ready earlier on my request. With the wooden deck and plantgrouth it feels like in a nature reserve,'Lots of birds'....Will deffinitely book here again.

Loved the quite environment, clean suburb, safe & secure parking, remote control gate. Only three rooms of average size which makes it very private. You do see the ocean from your bedroom balcony. Many birds singing, lovely! Found the place easy with my TomTom. Would have struggled without it though. Did not have breakfast though but I saw delicious breakfast... More

Well received by owner, Leslie and she saw to it that everything was well prepared to individual tastes. Friendly and thought-provoking breakfast convos went down well on the timber deck under the shade of the eponymous tree as cool screen to the warm Durban summer sun. The views from the balcony were epic and a pleasant surprise considering the location... More

The accomodation is neat, clean and simple. My room had a lovely view from the balcony. I would stay there again. I unfortunately missed breakfast as I had an early start. All in all a good stop over place.
