Carol was very welcoming and even had a little dinner for me after a very long day. The place was clean, had good internet access, and was around the corner from restaurants and stores. I enjoyed my stay there!

Great time with Carol, Keith, and the pups! Centrally located and close to shops and amazing food. The garden/pool area is a great place to unwind or get work done.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with Carol and Keith. The cottage is well-equipped and luxurious and I had a fabulous few nights' sleep. It's in a lovely part of town that is really convenient for getting around (especially by Uber). I will definitely be back!

Great place for the price, Keith was such wonderful host too. Since I was there for the Comrades Marathon, I left early in the morning an came back late. I had my own privacy, loved the separate entrance to the cottage. Quiet neighbourhood within a walking a distance to a mall and restaurants. Oh, and you get free fruits, juice and chocolate. Thanks for hosting us i.e me and my girlfriend. We enjoyed our stay

A reasonably small but well equipped and self contained unit. Had all things we required inc. kitchenette, bathroom and tv. Wifi was available though a bit temperamental. Would stay here again if we return to Durban. The hosts were very friendly and helpful also!

I am an art curator working in South Africa and internationally. My husband Keith and I enjoy hosting people and therefore find airbnb a great occupation. We have a house which is over a hundred years old which we have modernized over the years. The self catering apartments are all in our tropical garden and guests enjoy the peace and calm whilst being close to the city. We have always and still travel extensively with Paris being a favorite destination. We also collect art which enhances our environment.
