Clean and safe guesthouse. Great staff.
The stay was fantastic. I was happy with the accomodation. I will surely book there again when I decide to go to Durban.

A little disappointing stay. We had booked there because it clearly stated a separate living area, but in fact we had none (and there were ones on the property with separate areas). Our room was spacious and ok. The bedding was clean, but the valance covering the bottom of the bed looked like it had been there for ages. The safe was very small - too small to leave a laptop in. The room had several signs warning of security and panic buttons which left us feeling a bit uneasy - especially as two walls were glass doors which allowed for amazing views but had flimsy locks. The pool was too dirty to swim in, but in all fairness on the second day it was cleaned and usable thereafter. The breakfast was delicious and the staff serving the breakfast were wonderful - redeemed our stay. It was a very long walk to the centre (35-40 minutes). Taps were a little loose and some water was dripping behind the sink. Water supply was a bit unreliable. Our television did not work at one point, but it was immediately seen to. So a mixed experience.
