Amanzimtoti Beach Rest
Ranked #2 of 26 Amanzimtoti B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 13, 2011

Had stayed here while on a business trip to Durban and just loved the place and the great hosts Kim and Gordon. Staying in a Garden Suite, I had access to the beautiful garden just outside with a themed waterfall. The room was very spacious and absolutely clean. The rooms are done up each day in the noon and you come back to fresh linen each time. Kim and Gordon have an extensive list of breakfast optionn and you choose what you want.........made to order. The bar, kitchen and dining room is an all-in-one socializing room. Pick your drink for the evening, jot it down in a piece of paper, and it will be added to your account. Lunch and dinner will be arranged on request from a wide array restaurants nearby.
The warmth of the hosts and service of the staff will get me again to this place for sure!

I stayed for a week in June 2011. This place was fantastic. The rooms were spacious and clean. The staff made sure of that everyday. Each night before you go to bed you leave out your breakfast order. It was always warm and tasty. There is tons of secure parking. There are always tons of your favorite beers and drinks in the bar.

Kim and Gordon are great hosts!

If you care to see more pics look at my flickr. If the link isnt there, got to flickr. Search for me (strebkr) and then have a look at my set list. Find South Africa 2011.

Amanzimtoti Beach Rest is close to the Durban International Airport where Kim and Gordon met us at our rental car return ---It was a short drive to their beautiful home for the four of us with much luggage!

We have stayed at many B & B's around the world ; Amanzimtoti Beach Rest was one of the most beautiful houses in which we have stayed. The hosts were exceptionally accommodating. Full breakfast and airport transfer were included in the very reasonable price.

I was flying into Durban late at night and didn't want to venture downtown (it is a dangerous place). I found this guest house on the net - about 20 minutes drive from Durban. What a great place! A beautiful house, great room with ensuite. An honesty bar in the kitchen (not really a kitchen, but an open verandah overlooking the gardens) filled with various beers - perfect! Kim and her husband are the nicest people you could meet. Breakfast (included) was whatever you wanted. Parking in the grounds. Like the rest of Durban and environs, it's not safe to walk out at night, but here you wouldn't want to. Kim immediately offerd to feed me, even though it was very late. THE best place to stay.
