Very good value for money. I would have liked a bath and veranda in the room and someone to help with the luggage. Otherwise everything was great and I would definitely stay again and would recommend it.

Wow!! what a guesthouse. So close to the beach, and the La Lucia office parks. I had to extend my stay 3 times and everyone was so accommodating. The thoughtful staff and relaxed atmosphere was great.

Just recently found this little gem of a guest house in Durban. Specialising in corporate travel (and mini conferences) they were truly a home from home. Well appointed rooms and decor, a fabulous bed, strong service ethic and good value for money. Definitely worth a visit.
