One-On-Hely
Ranked #1 of 6 Mtunzini B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The guesthouse is well located with view on the ocean and has rooms with stylish yet individual interior. Internet is included and pretty fast.
Eloise helped my wife with luggage without us asking for it, and breakfast ("built to order") was delicious. Definitely a place to stay more than one night!

I agree with the previous guests - the welcome from Megan, Eloise and Ann makes you feel so at home, and all the facilities and food are excellent. They don't always serve an evening meal, but they did share the family meal with us on a couple of occasions, and it was the best of home-cooking. On the nights they couldn't cook for us they suggested good restaurants and made the bookings for us. Mtunzini is on the Zululand birding route for a good reason, it was lovely to see and hear the Trumpeter hornbills from the balcony, and a couple of times we saw the Purple crested Turaco (lourie). Out and about - somehow we managed not to see the Palm-nut vulture during our stay in Mtunzini, but down in the estuary we did have good views of woolly necked storks and the fish eagles, and we had a brief glimpse of a pair of Finfoots , as well as several species of kingfisher, amongst other birds. We had a great time photographing the fiddler crabs and mud skippers, and enjoyed watching the red duikers, vervet monkeys and the zebras who came to visit our picnic spot. Such beautiful scenery, Mtunzini is a lovely place to visit, and One on Hely is the ideal place to stay. Oh yes, and I swam in the pool and it was lovely and refreshing, and the water was nice and clean.

The welcoming of the owner and then of the manager in the morning were amazing, I felt definitely at home at first sight. Mtunzini is a calm and very preserved place, one on hely has a beautiful view on the ocean from each rooms.
Perfect for a short or even longer stay, I will go back soon.

The decor is stylish, the view sublime, the service exceptional. I highly recommend this spot whether the stay is for business or pleasure. The place is well positioned and the people are very helpful - including bringing an umbrella to my room when they knew I was going out and the rain had started pelting down.

Room Tip: Well positioned for trips to Mtunzini, University or Empangeni.

Very remiss that I haven't reviewed One on Hely before, we have family in the village and always stay here when visiting, not sure if this is our fourth or fifth visit since Anne opened. One of the best B & B's we have experienced in SA (and there have been many over many years). The girls are all so welcoming and the standards way exceed anything one would expect in sleepy Zini! Would be just as impressed if it were in Cape Town. Don't bother looking anywhere else stay here!

We stayed three nights in this place, we were looking for a nice and relaxing place and that was totally fulfilled.
The rooms are nice and spacious, you have a wonderful view over trees and to the ocean. Everything is clean and you even have a small coffee maker in the room.
A little bit awkward was the door to the bathroom, its just covers the view but not the sound ! :)
Our hosts were really nice, they made all kind of recommandation what to do in the area.
The breakfast was delicious, fresh fruit salad, yoghurts, eggs however you want them and the best, at the time you want to have breakfast.
One on Hely is right next to the main street. At the first moment we thought it would be a problem with the cars, but we did not really hear anything, because it is not a lot of traffic.
There is not a lot to do in Mtunzini, we enjoyed the beach and saw a lot of monkeys. There are also to good restaurants, but in the evening it gets a bit quite.
So if you are looking for a lovely place to stay some relaxing days, it is perfect.
