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.

Staying at the Umbrella Tree House was a highlight of our time in Durban. Lesley and family are fantastic hosts and a wealth of information. We settled in for a full week with 6 of us of all ages and we all loved it. The accommodation, hospitality, location were all fantastic. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend... More

Lovely stay, just would have been nice to have clean towels and a made bed on the second day of our stay, even though it was christmass, we were still paying for the service.. Otherwise, it was comfortable with lovely views, good location

Thanks for the review and the feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, short as it was. For the benefit of others reading this review I feel I must just explain. Usually over Christmas I only take self-caterers, the only reason I had accommodation available was due to a cancellation. In all my emails I state 'rooms are serviced daily... More

Thank You Lesley, our family had a wonderful stay at your B & B in December 2013. The rooms were lovely and the view awesome, although we spent most of the time on the deck together. The facilities were more than ample & we felt like we were "home" away from home" The only complaint is that our stay it... More
