We stayed a week in the Durban View and have only good things to say: The hosts Dave and Llewellyn, assisted by the ever-smiling Caroline, go out of their way to make their guests comfortable. The house is stylish, clean, has a small pool and a cool roof terrace with jacuzzi, a nice downstairs bar and free WiFi. Breakfast is is great and often includes home-made delicacies. The view from the front rooms and roof terrace is indeed stunning, the neighbourhood is residential, green and friendly. VERY happy with this choice, thoroughly recommended!

I stayed at the Durban View for three nights in early July 2011. The house itself is very cool, modern and yet comfortable. The bathroom in my room in particular was great! The roof deck has a great view of the city and the jacuzzi was very nice, especially as it was a bit chilly in the evenings. I met the hosts briefly (they were away for the weekend when I arrived) and they were quite nice; and very communicative and helpful prior to my arrival. The location was central to all the places I wanted to go. All in all a very pleasant place to stay and I would go back if I ever find myself in Durban again.

We stayed at the Durban View Guest House and loved it. The location is fantastic and the house was everything we wanted. Beautiful rooms! But the best was the friendliness of the owners!
