“Excellent B&B!!”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

One of the best places I have ever stayed. We had a large group from Canada and arrived after 3 weeks of safaris and traveling. Kim and Garth went above and beyond to ensure we were all comfortable. The staff are all amazing and very friendly. Breakfasts were delicious and the rooms are all beautifully decorated in different ways. Very close to the beach as well. Would definitely come back and highly recommend this place to anyone (travellers, business folk etc.). Thanks everyone!

Room Tip: Algal rooms are different sizes but beautiful.

I absolutely loved the place! It was a perfect way to end our honeymoon, hosts were very friendly and inviting. Definitely want to visit here again! Garth and Kim were fantastic, we felt right at home. Thanks so much for everything

Stayed there a couple of times now. Friendly accomodating hosts. Beautiful private bed and bedrooms, modern and spacious bathrooms great location. The breakfast is fit for a king. Good fresh coffee, gruit en home made pastries gives it a special touch. Gives you a feeling of serenity. . . . .

Great B&B in a fantastic area of Durban. The rooms are immaculate and comfortable, the hosts absolutely wonderful and friendly. Best of all was the great breakfast. Had a wondeful stay and a great hosted party on one of the nights. Will be back soon.

This B&B has been my home away from home for many years. It's a very special guesthouse that will truly add a level of luxury and comfort to any trip. Kim and Gareth are wonderful hosts and will ensure you have absolutely everything you could need including FREE (completely free) high speed wifi, directions to local restaurants, muffins, coffee, tea in abundance, and a breakfast that is the best I've ever had!

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing however the suites are a luxurious must-try if you can

This is without a doubt the best guesthouse I have ever stayed in. Beautifully decorated throughout, spacious and comfortable rooms (including the largest shower I have ever been in!) It is convenient to Durban and Umhlanga Rocks and is close to the airport. Garth and Kim are so welcoming and helpful, even organising a pickup and drop off at the airport for me. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they really made me feel at home (much better than previous owners). Breakfasts are individually prepared and there is a great cold buffet selection. It was also right next to a beautiful beach (linked by a short walk through the dune forest). Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: every room has its own charm- choose different ones each time you come for a different experience...
