Positive Reviews

Warm and friendly service

Guests rave about the personable owners and staff, often commenting on the warm welcome they receive as well as their prompt and kind attention to any issues or enquiries. Travellers appreciate the team's readiness to help with travel arrangements and sightseeing, as well. The housekeeping team is widely described as both thorough and thoughtful, while the breakfast chef earns top marks for the tasty and varied menu.

Comfortable rooms with relaxing outdoor spaces

Travellers enjoy the cosy, comfortably appointed rooms, noting that many open onto a deck with a lovely view of the sea off in the distance. The pool and terrace are similarly attractive places to lounge, and guests particularly appreciate that the area is equipped with a braai stand.

A quiet location with easy access to attractions

Travellers appreciate that though the guest house is located in a quiet suburb, it is conveniently close to many attractions provided you have a car or are prepared to take taxis. The beach is a five-minute drive, and there are many restaurants in and around it as well. The massive Gateway Shopping Centre is also about five minutes by car, and the trip into downtown Durban takes about 15-20 minutes.
