“Wonderful time”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We had a wonderful time staying at Lindsay Loft. The suite is large and comfortable, we felt very spoilt. Has great views of Durban. We love the owners dogs who reside on the property, such characters. Will definitely return.

“Our second visit. It's still excellent!”
Reviewed 7 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We had such a good experience here last year - we decided to book it again for our family visit in Durban.
It hasn't changed! and neither has our opinion of it. we'd definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a classy self catering base in Durban, A little off the beaten track (but close enough to most things in Durban as long as you have a car). Very spacious, well equipped an very quiet.
Unfortunately they were having a small problem with ants while we were there. Definitely necessary to keep food and drink under wraps or in the fridge!

We are so pleased you enjoyed Lindsay Loft and we certainly hope that we will see you again. I do apologise about the ants but the whole area seems to have been plagued by them this year but we seem to be winning the war so all should be well in the future.

“Felt like home”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The Lindsay Loft is a lovely place to stay if you are looking for an affordable, self-service place for a long-term stay. The place is close to Mitchell Park and Florida Road. It's in a residential area, which is a little tricky to find, but the property is secured with a gate, and you are able to park right in front of the loft. We stayed for a week and had everything we needed to live as if we were living at home.

Caroline puts some very nice touches to the place, stocking the fridge with milk, juice, yogurt, and a complimentary bottle of wine. The pantry also had a fresh loaf of bread and cookies. The kitchen was adequately equipped with pans, pots, and utensils. We had pretty much everything we needed to cook all of our meals.

The bedroom was nice and spacious, and there was air conditioning if needed. There was also a balcony that had a nice view of the city.

The only drawbacks was the WiFi, which was not very strong and kept cutting in and out. The place could also benefit from some upkeep, as the toilet sometimes didn't work properly and the washing machine was not very clean.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay!

Thank you so much for your review - I really do appreciate your comments as unless our guests tell us there is a problem we can't fix it. I am so sorry about the Wi-Fi, if I had known it would have been dealt with right away and I will see to the washing machine and loo immediately.

“If it's peace and space you want, look no further”
Reviewed 25 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed here for a week and surely felt at home. VERY spacious living area, bedroom and balcony. Caroline made sure we had an enjoyable stay: the pantry and fridge were well stocked on arrival: even some home-baked cookies! The washing machine was also put to good use during our stay. Caroline and Pepi are around if you need them, however, they never intrude in one's privacy. We value peace and quiet and as this "loft" is separate from the main house and on its own, it was absolutely perfect for us. Can be highly recommended.

“A home away from home”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Lindsay loft is really a hidden gem. It’s situated in beautiful Morningside and when it comes to accommodation it’s top notch. A huge loft apartment with amazing light, a spacious livingroom, a beautiful bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen and a clean and inviting bathroom. When we first saw it we were really taken back and we instantly wanted to run laps along the huge balcony that stretches the entire length of the loft and looks out on beautiful lush gardens.
The apartment is self catering with everything you need and Carolines personal touches with juice and marmalade in the fridge, free tea and coffee and personal letter when you arrive makes everything even more special. Morningside is a beautiful area with colonial style buildings and just across from Lindsay Loft there is a beautiful park and really good breakfast places (we would recommend Charlie´s place). Caroline and Pepi are amazing hosts, so incredibly kind and interesting people and full of good advice on what to see and do in Durban.
