This was a great place to stay. We came for a long weekend and we found the staff to be super friendly & helpful, the rooms were laid out nicely and had comfortable facilities. The location was great - so close to the beach. We will definitely stay here again when we come back through Durban.

Sleeping with AC is not an option for me. So a really thick Duvet is a problem. I did not check the cupboards but a sheet and blanket would have been perfect. Very thick curtains also block off air flow to the room.

Cowrie Cove has become my stay of choice for all my future Durban branch visits! Service was exceptional; the room was impeccable and the venue itself was central to a lot of my travels throughout my stay. I am very much looking forward to my next visit and making use of the Cowrie Cove facilities.

A last minute booking and a very pleasant experience. Room was ideal, close to beach and lovely choice of breakfast. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Definitely worth a 2nd visit. Room was pleasant with nice facilities.

What a wonderful treat - We stayed here over the Easter 2017 weekend. Great location right on the beach. The suites were comfortable and had everything we needed. We looked forward to a scrumptious breakfast every morning. Stunning swimming pool which is kept spotlessly clean. Caroline is a wonderful host. Cowrie Cove has become our favourite KZN holiday place.

Too often you get too much of the same. Travelling a lot, you get bored with the same old, same old. Cowrie Cove is a really luxurious B&B with ample space and luxury. The breakfast is great, the people are great and the location is great.

What a spectacular guest house, in a beautiful location. The service we received from Caroline, was beyond exceptional. She was extremely accommodating to our needs. Friendly staff, beautiful guest house, close to the beach....we will definitely be returning :)

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 was very dark. However, a dark room is helpful to sleep in and who needs...
