Very nice big rooms and barhrooms. Location great with lots of outdoor patios and restaurants in walking distance. Great Indian place just down the block. Small pool but still sufficient for a cooling dip after a day of sightseeing Durban.

It was way over our expectations! I would advice anyone to stay there. I wish we could stay longer. The house is amazing and the personnel is helpful, reliable and cheerful (5-star service quality). In particular, our host Goodman was the perfect host ever.
