Manaar House
Ranked #3 of 43 Umhlanga Rocks B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 17, 2008

Spacious, stylish room that had recently been renovated, with air con. Nice hosts that gave us good travel info, and breakfast was nice. Outdoors compound pretty small. We were not aware before arriving how big Umhlanga actually is (like a big suburb to Durban) so we had expected the b&b to be closer to the beach. The map on their web page is just showing major roads, not showing all the smaller roads you cross in between the place and the beach, making it look like it's just a block away. Manaar house was in a residencial area, so there weren't a lot of shops, restaurants etc right by. You did wind up using car/taxi for such things. It is also not so close to the big Gateway shopping center - several kilometers away. Would recommend the place because of the nice rooms and hosts.

Stayed there for the 1st time and had booked it without any recommendation just based on the info's from their website. It was a fabulous place to stay. The owners, Jack and Mark, made us feel so welcome right from the beginning. The rooms were super and especially the brandnew bathrooms a treat. Although the weather was bad for 3 days we still enjoyed our stay so much. Lovely breakfasts were served outside under the covered patio by the pool. The owners know the area very well and can give good advise on things to do, eating out or clubbing. This is the perfect place to stay for straight or gay couples (it is gayfriendly). The beach and Umhlanga village centre is only a 3 minute's drive away. We will definately be back!
