If you are looking for a great place to stay in Durban as a gay man or gay couple look no further. The quality of the rooms surpasses what you can get at any international chains. The amenities are spectacular starting with the main room on the ground floor with the bar area where you can socialize with your hosts and other guests as well as local people who stop by to visit at times. The pool just off the bar is very inviting and convenient to cool off in between drinks. Then at night the hot tub on the roof top terrace comes in handy as the nights tend to be cooler and don't forget the spectacular views of the city and the ocean from there, hence the name of the guest house.
But what I enjoyed the most from my experience is the immediate connection to the local gay scene from the recommendations of the hosts. They knew exactly where to go for beaching, eating, drinking, clubbing, etc. I felt more in the know about the gay scene there than I do at home. Being relatively smaller than Joburg or Cape Town, Durban's gay scene has the advantage of making you feel part of it instantly. I highly recommend Durban and the Durban View Guest House.More
