Loved the owner. Humble and friendly staff, always there to assist. Have all needed refreshments in the fridge at an affordable price. Safe and quite place easy to access all the attractive sites of durban. Had a great time, planning to go back and this will still be my 1st preference.

Staff was very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are luxurious and relaxing and all our needs were met without delay. Bathrooms outfitted with very nice showers and beds are very comfortable. Would recommend for couples to get away.

This is a very comfortable, clean and friendly B&B. The only thing missing is that the location is not great if you are there on business and have to see clients in the Pinetown area or North of Durban as traffic is an issue in the morning and afternoon. There are also no real restaurants in the area although you... More

This place had so much character. The hosts were welcoming and very impressive. They built the whole place themselves and take great care of the land. They even took us on a hike down to the stream. They have an adorable dog too! Loved our stay.
