We had a great stay here for three nights. It's only a short two minute drive to the beach and boardwalk, lighthouse. It was easy to jump on highway and drive to Durban and Ushaka Marine World, botanical gardens (a 20 minute drive). Jill and Chris were fantastic and breakfast was delicious and prompt every morning, which was great for us since we had a lot of busy planned activities! The property and surroundings were quiet and pleasant in a residential area. We appreciated having a room to stay in that included a kitchenette and living area since we traveling with a little one! We would definitely stay here again.
