Sue and her husband was such a lovely and friendly couple. We were 4 Girls and had Three dogs with us, and that was not a problem at all. The view is FANTASTIC and the breakfast on the balcony is very delicious - you got to have it if you stay there. Sue was warm and welcoming at such a... More

Very comfortable, lovely view. Friendly and accommodating hosts. For the animal lover there are dogs, cat, hens. Monkeys and mongoose visit the garden. Lots of birds. Can hear the sea beautifully at night. A place to revist

If you want a beautiful view, a filling breakfast on the balcony overlooking the Indian Ocean, a friendlly hostess who tries her best to make you feel at home, Bed & Breakfast by the Sea is a good place for you. It's quiet (though there are monkeys that will sometimes come to your balcony!), and the view is breathtaking and... More

My girlfriend and me worked in Stanger Hospital for three months. It wasn't easy to find accommodation but with this B&B, we definitely made the right choice. We stayed in the self catering garden cottage. It's not too big but it was really all we needed. The neighbourhood is very beautiful and safe. Sue, the host, and her husband as... More

Bedroom was comfy. Clean. Full range of channels on the TV. WiFi was a welcome extra that I hadn't expected. The view is spectacular and the sound of the waves breaking is a wonderful noise to fall asleep to. The breakfast was generous and served on the verandah overlooking the sea was a very pleasant experience. The animals were a... More

Perfect B&B. Location is just right (15-20 mins to Durban airport) and a view to die for. Watching the sea and the dolphins over breakfast. Lovely room and luxurious furnishing. Sue went out of the way to accomodate both my vegan diet and my desire for a late check out. She could not have been more hospitable. I recommend this... More

I had read about the great view on TRIPADVISOR, but experiencing it first - hand was just the most remarkable thing. Because of the setting, the room felt so spacious and we never once had the feeling of being cooped up in a tiny boxy space - a common occurrence as we live on a large piece of land in... More

We stayed at Sue's self catering apartment for 3 nights after two and a half weeks of safaris around the Zululand/Maputaland region. The apartment is well appointed, and was perfect for our needs. Sue made us very welcome, and we had a restful couple of days before our journey back to the UK watching dolphins swim by from our fantastic... More

I spent two glorious days with Sue last month... the place is amazing, with stunning views over the ocean. Sue was a great host... and made the best breakfasts of my trip. I wasn't blessed with the best weather, but no matter, plenty of time to watch the ocean, read and be entertained by the monkeys and Mongeese in the... More

I have had the utmost pleasure of being accommodated by Sue and family. From the time I have made my reservation to the dag I departed it has been an absolute joy to be there.
