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.

Friendly hosts.Awesome accomodation. 900 m to the Indian Ocean. Quiet surroundings. Free WiFi. Only 15 minutes from the King Shaka Airport in Durban. Perfect accomodation before or after the project in Uhluhluwe with African Impact.

It was great staying over at Lesley's place: a warm welcome, beautiful room, delicious breakfast, great recommendations and most of all a very personal approach. When friends of us arrived a few days after us, Lesley could tell them in detail about our trip. Very nice!

The hotel is close to the beach, restaurants, bars and shops. The bed is to small. The breakfast is good but a fresh cup of coffee would be nice. The parking is difficult, when there are more then three cars.

Pleasant and friendly. I really cannot fault anything the owner friendly and accommodated our early check in times......she helped us arrange taxis etc which was kind of her...the guesthouse is not within walking distance to a shopping centre but that was not a problem......
