We arrived early to check in and then went off for the day. We received a warm welcome and shown around our room and the lounge and outside area. The room was clean, well furnished and comfortable. On our return in the evening, we were able to get ice and wine glasses from the honesty bar, no trouble at all.... More

A really wonderful place to stay - comfortable room, great breakfast, kind and caring hostess and very convenient location. A real home away from home. Janelle adds so much warmth, is friendly and goes out of her way to help. I highly recommend this fantastic b&b. Will certainly be back

Exceptionally well located in that it's a 2 minute walk to restaurants, 5 minute walk to the beach, and close to the Umhlanga Ridge business area if you're there for work. We were greeted by the incredibly friendly and helpful Val, who really added a special touch to our entire trip; what a lovely person.
