We are regular guests at Zimbete and have had many wonderful stays at this most comfortable and welcoming country house.
We have stayed in different rooms each time and find them more than adequate with bath/shower en suite and air conditioning in each room.
We love relaxing in the lush garden with its views of Richards Bay and enjoy a welcome dip in the pool on a hot summers day.
The hosts serve a most delicious supper every evening and its always a pleasure to meet the other guests over a pre -dinner drink. Breakfast is specially prepared to individual tastes.
Some times we stop over on our way to the game reserves in Northern Zululand and sometimes the farmhouse is our relaxing destination as it is a pleasant hour and a half drive from Durban.
We can really recommend this country establishment.
