On the 29th April my hubby and I decided to book at Akanans for a little weekend away. Firstly the host and hostess, Annamarie and Dowe, You guys were so welcoming....Subash and I felt so at home and your services were 100% on point. I really enjoyed our braai night....Look forward to returning to your ever so warm and relaxing cottage...Thank you for your kind services......rooms were very neat and cosy

Room Tip: Choose a bigger room on availability... We booked last minute as all other rooms were booked out....however we still loved our stay

Best guest house I've ever stayed at and I travel a lot for work.
Friendly people willing to assist and help with anything.

Value for money and great breakfast.
Location is central to in and around Durban and close to everything.

Akanan is a very professionally run establishment, and very Family friendly.
The breakfasts are excellent and well prepared, the roooms are spotless and very tastefully decorated as is the rest of the establishment. A home from home atmosphere, and an amazing lapa and swimmingpool to chill at as well, we will be back.

This was my second time I had the pleasure of staying in Akanan. You feel at home as soon as you get there and experience the friendly service. I travel down for business and it is really easy to get to and to get out of Akanan, realy a home away from home. Thank you!

I liked everything about this Guest house i.e. location, hosts friendliness , food, breakfast, bedrooms and most of all cleanliness but I did feel like I was living in someone's home.
All in all its a great place to stay.
