The best place in Umhlanga
This is a hidden diamond and particularly if you are tired of big, famous hotel chains which keep promising but never delivers. Here is the opposite the staff is fantastic and so also the ocean view. Very clean and a super breakfast.

8/10 Very good

We were only here for two nights. We were exploring Durban which didn't permit much time at the guest house. We found the check in and check out smooth and efficient. Svenana is an exceptional hostess, she is warm and inviting. You feel right at home here The home is extremely clean and serene. We enjoyed the peace, the sound of the waves at night, the cozy bed and ease getting to restaurants and beach. You could spend the entire day reading on the sun deck. Lovely. Will return.
