I had a great stay at Crooked Tree Cottage - the room was small but very comfortable and there is a living room available for sprawling. Helen and her husband are very friendly and very accommodating.

Not the typical person that takes the time to do these surveys, my overall experience and quality of my visit can be summed up in few words,,,, Excellent, clean and extremely friendly couple that run this place, location was fantastic with only a 15 minute walk to town and the beach.

I booked a very last minute trip, and everything went to plan. Booking was efficient, room was neat and comfortable, and hosts made me feel welcome. Price was reasonable, and location was perfect. I will book with them again.

We enjoyed out stay and felt very comfortable and relaxed, nice area with easy access to Durban City and the local village. Helen and her husband were very attentive hosts and yet left us to relax in the evenings and feel at home.
