“Fabulous B&B on KZN's South Coast”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

A belated review of my stay in November 2013......fantastic friendly hosts Angie & Heiner provide wonderful accommodation in the lovely conservation area of Southbroom. As pictures on this site show, it is a truly beautiful house with close attention to detail and the needs of a traveller. The beach is just a 10 minute walk away as is a nearby restaurant, though there are other lovely restaurants within short driving distances. Alan's rest breakfasts are an experience every traveller needs at least once on a stay - wonderful and varied choices.
Southbroom is a quiet area but quiet doesn't mean boring, the beaches are wonderful and their are lovely nature walks but there are some interesting places to drive to in the area, such as Oribi Gorge and nearby is a Crocodile Park as well as a Snake Park (Pure Venom). If you are a golfer, then you will love Southbroom's golf course, even as a non-golfer it is a lovely walk and there is a bowling Club and tennis courts too.
Try Alan's rest ..... You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: The Red Room is stunning with view to pool, which is all that the Brown Room lacks, all facilities a...

My wife and I stayed at this perfect B&B for a couple of nights. The residence and grounds are kept to a very high standard. The rooms have private access to the pool and access can be reached without having to go through the house if you prefer. Angie and Heiner were the perfect hosts making you most welcome and provided an excellent breakfast each morning At the end of the Road is access to the beach and an excellent restaurant called Trattoria la Terrazza. If you wanted to have a relaxing 5* break in Southbroom you couldn't do better.

Whilst visiting my sister in Johannesburg we took a trip down the east coast to Sothbroom. We were lucky to find Alan's Rest. Angela and Gruber were lively hosts and a lovely place to stay. I hope to return.

My GF and I made a last min decision to get out of town (we live in Durban). This was during the Dec holiday madness and this was one of the last places I could find in the south coast. What a find! The place is recently renovated and immaculate; the hosts fantastic. Yes, it's remote, but isn't that the whole point of going away? 10 min walk to the rugged beach and restaurant. I dare you to find something better anywhere in the south coast.

My partner and I came across Alan's Rest while looking for accommodation in peak holiday season.. We are both incredibly pleased that this was 1 out of 2 Available B&B's for our dates...else we might never have stumbled on this gem! We even extended our stay by 1 night before heading back to Johannesburg, very reluctant to leave this great establishment! The attention to detail, tranquil setting, location and hosts (Angie and Heiner) are just superb! If only Alan's rest was closer, we would be frequent visitors! And do try the roast potatoes!!!!

My husband and I stayed here over a weekend for our anniversary. It's a beautiful place in a beautiful setting! The attention to detail was a great factor in making our stay an enjoyable and relaxing one. The hosts are incredibly friendly and professional, and made us feel welcomed. We'd recommend this b&b to anyone looking for a relaxing break in paradise. Truly wonderful!

Me and my wife wanted a quiet weekend away from the rat-race; we found this lovely little guesthouse in Southbroom Kwa-zulu Natal
It about 130km south of Durban, and what a find!!
Everything was just perfect, the room, the Jacuzzi in the room, I really cannot think of one item to say negatively
The owners was absolutely fabulous and I can recommend this guesthouse with total confidence

Room Tip: Choose the red room it has a jacuzzi in
