Johnny and Amanda are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. They have excellent knowledge of South Africa in every way, food, plants, places to go etc. a real South African experience when you stay here.
The rooms are beautifully decorated and the food is delicious. There is a well stocked bar and beautiful surroundings. You can even go for lovely walks in the national park where the B&B is located.
Not too far from the airport and close to the city.
If you want a Real South African experience it is a must! It is also gay friendly, everyone accepted for who they are.

Room Tip: The main bedroom is excellent but all the rooms are great

What more could you ask for.... More than a home away from home. Beautiful rooms, stunning grounds with more than enough nature trails. Hands on and extremely gracious hosts. The food is exquisite and never laking. Always made to feel as welcome as possible. I don't think i'll consider elsewhere in Durban.

The most gracious and generous hosts I've ever experienced. The venue is absolutely amazing, the accommodation luxurious and the meals are fantastic. One feels spoilt as a guest here, definitely will be returning on our next visit to Durban!
