Jill and Chris have offered us the most warm-hearted reception we could imagine, making us really feeling we were at home. Cleanliness and equipment of the room was perfect in every way. Breakfast was excellent and internet was free. we could not imagine of a better way to discover Durban, where we never had been before, I would heartly recommend the place to anyone who goes there. Only flaw maybe was the location, a bit far from the beach and city center by foot (ca 15 mn walking), but this was easily balanced by how pleasant and friendly the house was.
