We as the owners manage a relatively small establishment in the La Lucia / Umhlanga Rocks area. Our aim is to create a family atmosphere where all guest will feel welcome and at home; therefore we will walk the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Akanan is very easy to find just off the M4 freeway between Durban and Umhlanga Rocks. We are walking distance from La Lucia Beach and a small shopping centre with a grocery store and various restaurants. Umhlanga Rocks is 4 kilometers away, with Durban City Centre, Moses Mabidha, Kingspark Swimming Pool, Athletic Stadium, The Sharks Tank (Home of Sharks Rugby), various golf courses and U’Shaka between 8 to12 minutes’ drive from us. We are situated on the Public Transport Route. We also offer to call a metered Taxi Service on your request. The guest house offers a luxury bed and breakfast experience with complimentary amenities, glass of Jeripico, Coffee / Tea station and something sweet to nibble on.

Upon arrival, I was treated with kindness and the food was amazing. Rooms are comfortable and spacious. I will stay there again and absolutely recommend it. Thank you Douw and Annemarie for your hospitality. My business trips to Durban are now something I look forward too every month.

Fantastic people, amazing breakfast and a great overall stay! I will definitely be back. I travel the country multiple times a month and have stayed in hundreds of bnb's. This has been my best experience to date.

As always, visiting Annemarie and Dough is not just a guesthouse, but a friendly, family environment. Home away from home for me every time! Room is perfect, with everything you need, one feels very save and extremely close to anything you need from the shop or restaurants.
