Unfortunately my stay was short - I decided to spend one night closer to the airport as I was unable to get a return flight to JHB on the day. My welcome was warm and friendly, room spacious, clean and well equipped. As I had to leave early the next morning to catch my flight, I opted to skip breakfast....

We were welcomed by Hermann and Jack, who took care of our every need. Hermann helped us with bookings for good restaurants and we found the location perfect for both exploring the city of Durban and Umhlanga beach, and relaxing in peace by the pool. The room was spotless, thoughtfully equipped and very comfortable. The breakfast omelette was wonderful. Massive...

The guesthouse is lovely, clean and comfortable. The garden around the sparkling pool is beautiful. Hermann and Jack are very friendly and most helpful, as are all the staff. The room was very comfortable with essential medicines stocked in the bathroom and a fridge with cool drinks and chocolates in the room. The breakfast served at the pool was excellent....

I stayed here 3 years ago and this trip I found the welcome just as warm and friendly as before. The room was a good size, with catering facilities. A good size walk in shower and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was made to order, again with a smile. Would highly recommend.

The room was very comfortable and well-equipped with a small kitchenette and everything working fine. The terrace at the small pool is just lovely with plants and artistic decorations. The same goes for the shared living room. The only drawback is the location close to the highway. The nice private veranda outside my room was too noisy to enjoy. The...

Beautiful setting with outdoor patio next to the pool, where the breakfast is enjoyed. Warm welcome by the host, very nice dog, and room with bath tub. All in all a very pleasant stay for one night in Umhlanga.

Probably the best stay I have had in South Africa. Very helpful and personable owner and staff. Only 15 minutes from the airport. Regret that we weren't able to book more than one night. Breakfast was excellent. Seemed to be a very safe area.
