We were in Durban to support my sister as she ran the Comrades ultra-marathon. The service we received was outstanding. We arrived from Johannesburg very late and had to call Bruce to get in. He couldn't have been more gracious even after being woken up in the middle of the night. He walked us through the apartment explaining the amenities.... More

If you are not sure about booking Villa La Palma when visiting Durban, then relax, it is perfect. The villa is very spacious, fully equiped, spotless clean, with brand new clean white linnen. A couple of very good restaurants, as well as very popular bars, are just around the corner so you don't even need to drive around town. There... More

Fantastic accommodation with everything we needed to make our stay so enjoyable. Awesome beds, a/c, full kitchen with washer and dryer (such a bonus) and just steps away from many great restaurants with choices ranging from Italian to Moroccan. Bruce was very welcoming, helpful and thank you to him and all his staff for making our stay so enjoyable.

The Villa La Palma was such a wonderful surprise for our recent business trip to Durban. Coming off a long trip in Rwanda and Tanzania, I was looking for a place to do laundry and settle in a bit while paying a visit to UKZN-- Villa La Palma was perfect. The apartment was just like a home with 2 bedrooms,... More

The guest house has four apartments with two very large bedrooms each. Apartments have fully furnished with complete kitchen. Period house with wooden floors, high ceilings and a charming little garden. Definitely recommended due to its location in trendy Glenwood, close to the ICC and other Durban landmarks. Within a stone's throw from a number of restaurants.

Lovely apartment with all the trims. Better value than a hotel. The breakfast is nice. Location is excellent and a few steps from lovely restaurants in Glenwood. Easy access to major attractions. Definitely worth a visit

We stayed here May 2013 for a week and couldn't have been happier. Bruce and the guys couldn't have been more helpful, not least Bruce getting up to see us off for a race we were doing at 4am on a sunday morning! Not many hosts would do that. It was clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could... More

I think was great value for money as well. We had the whole floor to ourselves. Two superb bedrooms, very clean and comfortable, a living room with TV... More
