You have to be pet friendly to stay there because the owner has a lot of dogs & cats, some dogs like to swim in the pool.... The rooms a litle bit to dark but OK, some time ago this was probably modern.

We stayed in room number 1, and it was in a fantastic position. Close to the breakfast area, the pool and close to the private gate that has your own walk way to the beautiful quiet beach. The pool area is stunning, with loungers and even a little area to sit in like a little lounge cover type area. The...

Everyone was really friendly. Breakfast was superb and the accommodation was excellent! The Bathroom, the lounge and the outside area was well maintained. 24hr coffee machine was great because we tend to wake up quite early!

It's the perfect location tucked away right by the beach so if all you want to do is stay at home, enjoy the pool and guest house it's no problem, you can...

We were only able to stay overnight, but wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy the beach just 40m from the property. Close to Umhlanga, but quite area. Good breakfast and lovely entertainment area around the pool.

I stayed for only one night and Caroline was so welcoming. The room is very spacious and clean and the breakfast was just amazing. This was my first guest house experience and I will definitely come back again. The only draw back is the fact that you need to go out for dinner.

Our stay actually was during the World Cup in 2010. We were very impressed with the staff and the easy access to the beach. The breakfast was enjoyable and very relaxed. The fruit was always enjoyable. We actually encountered monkeys during our stay which is unique for us since we only have them in zoos. The rooms were large and...

We thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon at the Cowrie Cove guest house. Caroline and her team are welcoming, and always eager to help. We stayed for 6 nights in Suite 3. The guest house is located close to La Lucia mall and Gateway - featuring plenty of shops and eating outlets. Breakfast is served daily, a variety of cereals, breads, cheeses,...

I chose this place for a business retreat with my colleague and, sure enough, we found out it was the right choice. This guesthouse is NOT your grandma's beach house. This is a nicely, designed-for-purpose place, with all the comfort you expect. Breakfast are sumptuous, rooms are big, pool area is so relaxing. The owners are just there to help...

We stayed at Cowrie Cove at the recommendation of our outfitter and were not disappointed. The rooms are lovely, the bathrooms spacious, and the beds very comfortable. The staff was courteous and friendly and the breakfast amazing! Coffee was great, and access to the honesty bar was very nice. Caroline went above and beyond in providing advice on where to...
