    Very comfortable room and huge wet room. Lovely breakfasts. Really appreciated the tea and coffee machine in the hallway. Umhlanga is an upmarket part of Durban and this guest house is literally 30 secs walk to the sea. The only slight issue was our room...More

    You have to be pet friendly to stay there because the owner has a lot of dogs & cats, some dogs like to swim in the pool.... The rooms a litle bit to dark but OK, some time ago this was probably modern.
