With excitement and joy brimming over in our minds for the World Cup, we travelled down the enchanting Stanley Grace Cresent and arrived at the beautiful Villa Calla. This was the start of our World Cup tour and it could not have been better thanks to the Management and staff and residence of Villa Calla. Immediately on arrival, we were greeted with open arms and welcoming smiles by Lynette (the Manageress at Villa Calla), Carl (the owner's son of the Villa) and not forgetting Fritz the dachshund. We were soon to experience we had made a top choice for our stay in Durban for the first 8 nights of our month long tour through South Africa.
The effort made by Lynette and Carl to make us feel at home and ensure our every need was catered for was notable. The rooms were extremely clean and well appointed and the garden with the cleanest and largest pool we encountered on our tour were thoroughly enjoyed on the hot sunny mornings before the football action occurred in the afternoon. The level of attention to detail and interest shown to the customer by Lynette was excellent and Carl ensured we were aware of all the facilities and services on offer at Villa Calla. Also the calibre of the other guests was high and we met some great people whilst staying here.
As we enjoyed our stay so much, we decided with no hesitation to return to Villa Calla for the Semi Final game in Durban. A heartfelt thanks Lynette and Carl - you made our stays with you so pleasant and good fun along the way. Anyone thinking of staying in Durban and the beautiful Umhlanga Rocks, please have a look at Villa Calla. A real credit to such nice people in a great country which is South Africa.
