Stan and Tilly are very friendly and helpful. The separate cottage was as described and well equipped with anything you could need. The house is in a nice neighbourhood called Berea just outside the downtown core. Safe area but we were told not to walk at night. Would stay again.
Our stay at Stan and Tillys garden cottage was pleasant and safe. We felt at home, because the cottage was exactly like shown on the pictures and the garden is very lovely. Moreover, Stan and Tilly were very helpful with warmth and hospitality. Whenever we had a question, they helped us with an ear open. Musgrave Center with diverse bank institutes, shops and restaurants is located nearby the cottage, same as the Botanical Garden (which is worth seeing it!).
Thank you very much for a great stay and we can highly recommend the cottage and and Stan and Tilly as hosts!
We enjoyed our stay at Stan and Tilly's apartment. It is clean and had everything we needed. They were always there whenever we had questions. We felt very safe and like we were at home. We would recommend it to anyone visiting Durban.
Pleasant guesthouse, with all the amenities you could require. Very comfortable and clean.
I was arriving late in the evening, but Stan and Tilly ensured I had a smooth arrival and communication was great.
They allowed me privacy but were always friendly and welcoming when I spoke to them.
Stan and Tilly were very gracious hosts, and offered helpful advice about the area, and about getting around. The cottage was comfortable and well-equipped for self-catering. The neighborhood was also safe and conveniently located close to shops, groceries, transport, and city centre.
6 - weeks housing in a well equipped, fine Self-Catering Cottage, flew by fast. My Sister, three year old daughter and I felt very welcomed by Stan and Tilly, who where familiar and understanding with the chaos three - year olds may cause!
The Cottage is absolute central to everything in Durban, and a safe place to stay at. Restaurants and Supermarkets are reachable by walking distance. In addition to that the botanic gardens is just around the corner, a very nice way to escape the buzzing city life. All the other hot-spots are reachable by either public transport /cab. Either Stand or Tilly were always available when needed assistance. We enjoyed breakfast outside, while my daughter enjoyed the pool area a lot. A very clean and child friendly place. Thanks a lot!
Stan & Tilly were very welcoming, their comfortable cottage is close (by car) from good restaurants (Berea district)!
