My wife and I stayed at Rosetta House for 2 nights near the end of our honeymoon trip to South Africa, and found it a great place to base ourselves for a short while to explore Durban, and also meet up with some of my long lost relatives !
Rosetta House is situated in a very safe area of Durban, and is within easy walking distance of the restaurants on Florida, and Windermere roads; we walked back to the B & B at night with no problems at all. Lee & Bill are very welcoming and have a great home, we were also very surprised to find that they had left us a bottle of sparkling wine in the room fridge to congratulate us on our recent wedding, which was very kind of them ! The breakfast is fantastic, great quality and quantity, with a cold buffet of cereals, yoghurt, fruit etc available, followed by a cooked breakfast.
The room was clean, tidy, the bed comfortable, and was air conditioned if needed, just what we needed. The garden is a great place to relax, if the weather is good, and keep an eye out for the vervet monkeys which seem to enjoy it too !!!
