Hi Ken, thanks for the review, yes I guess there is no perfect location, only the guest can decide on in the city with the noise and security or a few kms, not that too far out with great views and quietness. How are those legs doing? I bet you'd love to be sitting on that deckchair in the water....

Excellent service from the moment you walk in the door until you unfortunately have to check out. We used it as a 2016 Comrades base and it surely helped knowing that we ran back to this lodge to recover.

I stayed the lodge for 9 nights, when I was in Durban. It was very comfortable and safe, so I felt like I was at home. Restaurants that owners recommended were all excellent. Breakfast was nice. Because of tasty breakfast and dinner, I gained 2kg! When I visit Durban next time, I will stay the lodge again. ダーバンに滞在している間、9日間滞在しました。 とても落ち着いた素敵なロッジで、家にいるように快適に過ごすことができました。 オーナーさんおすすめのレストランは本当にすべておいしかったです。...

Thank you Gary and Tosca for the warm service and giving us tips to go around Durban. It was a very good experience staying at the Guest house. The GH is quite central to many attractions and very silent and closed. We really enjoyed the stay here. Cheers, Looking forward to coming back to your GH again.

We really enjoyed our stay. The breakfasts were divine, the room was clean and very comfortable. Gary and Tosca were most welcoming and accommodating. We would certainly make use of their B&B for any future trips to Durban.
