    The workers had a positive attitude, made wonderful breakfasts, not only cleaned but organized the rooms, folded laundry, and even gave us hugs when we needed them. They were great. I would definitely return to this cute little guest house.More

    We were warmly welcomed. The green environment gives a natural, fresh feeling. The staff was kind and the service was generally better than the other places we visited in Durban. Hospitality was really good. We enjoyed our stay there.

    I stayed here for 3 nights while visiting UKZN. The hosts were very friendly and looked after you, it felt like staying at a relatives house. Rooms are nice, as is the atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone.
