Reviewed June 4, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay in this very pleasant guesthouse. The rooms were pretty, the sitting room comfortable and the dining area worked well. The view of the sea was good, though somewhat distant. Breakfast was excellent. Our hosts were most welcoming and found time for a chat, without overdoing it!. A very pleasant stay, thankyou.

Thanks so much for the review Sarah. Good to hear you enjoyed your stay. And that we didn't 'overdue' it. Hahaha, I can get carried away with chatting, so very glad to hear it wasn't too much.

Spacious room and excellent service, guest house is located in a very nice area, Close to the beach and good starting point to explore Durban and surrounding, recommended to hire a car to get around. Individual breakfast service, lovely garden and swimming pool.

Always a great place to stay and will definitely go back again.

Perhaps a small fridge the rooms would be nice so that we can keep some cold drinks / water and little nibbles in the room.

Lovely place.

Thanks for the great review Garreth. Always good to have you here. Next time book room 4 - it's got a whole kitchen to itself :) And it is my luxury room so you have more space.

allthough only one night, it was very relaxing and beautiful. The beach promenade with its cafe's and restaurans is in walking distance. The area is silent (though some dogs needed to bark at each other during the morning..).
Easy reach to King Shaka Airport.

Hi Wolfgang, thanks so much for the review. Sorry about the dogs, it's not usually that noisy. I think everyone seemed to be walking their dogs that day, which is quite unusual and it gets all the other dogs barking. But very happy that you enjoyed your stay all the same. Hope we see you again some day in sunny South Africa :)

We stayed here for three nights as part of a little tour of SA. Even from the initial booking, at short notice, Lesley was so helpful in making sure everything was sorted for us, as we were travelling with a young baby. We were going self catering, and the from we had was fantastic. As soon as we entered we were in a nice, light, airy room which was big, with nice decor and a huge bathroom and lovely little kitchen. The room was just right for a hot coastal type location, and what was even more impressive, was that there were no rough edges. No little broken things, not dirt, mould, chipped tiles, just clean and well decorated, and we felt like home from home. As people say it is close to Umhlanga and is definitely within walking distance. I've not tried Lesley's breakfasts, but if they're half as good as her hospitality then they should be good. Can't praise Lesley or this place highly enough, a perfect stop for our first visit to Umhlanga. Will definitely return one day!
