Musgrave is a suburb within the greater Berea. The Berea is one of the Durban's upmarket suburbs. Built on a ridge rising from the city centre, most of Berea overlooks the sea and harbour as well as Greyville Racecourse surrounding the prestigious Royal Durban Golf Course. From many points there are also views of the magnificent Botanical Gardens, Kingsmead Cricket Ground and King's Park rugby and other sports (website hidden) must be the only city in the world with so many recreational amenities bordering its CBD! So there is little wonder that Durban's Berea is much sought after as a residential area as well as by visitors who prefer to stay in sedate suburbia but want easy access to the tourist hotspots. Berea is also favoured by business executives visiting Durban. They have many comfortable B&B guesthouses and lodges to choose from, as well as self-catering cottages and apartments. Many of them are within walking distance of Musgrave Shopping Mall, which includes several cinemas. Berea also boasts a broad selection of excellent restaurants.
No drunkenness will be permitted on the property. No loud partying late into the night is allowed. Visitors, other than the paying guests, must be cleared with the hosts.

Warm welcome on our arrival and given secure parking space and shown the rooms. Comfortable accommodation which suited us very well. Lovely outdoor areas for alfresco breakfasts and dinner. And a pool though we didn't use it. Good location within safe walking distance of the Botanic gardens. And easy driving to the Musgrave Mall and to beach areas. If we ever return to Durban we'd be very happy to stay with Stan and Tilly again.
Stan and Tilly are probably the nicest people I have met in my life. The cottage it lovely - I was taking a short break from my job elsewhere in Africa - and it was perfect. I would advise downloading uber beforehand as it is a cheap R30 journey into town. It is also a short walk to the musgrave centre which is great for all your needs. Tilly was even kind enough to drive me there to show me the way on my first day! Both Stan and Tilly were there to help in any way I needed - thank you so much for a great stay!
Stan and Tilly were fantastic during our stay. They provided us with an info pack on the local area. They were also very flexible with our arrival and departure times.
Lovely place. Stan & Tilly were extremely friendly. Good area & the bonus of a swimming place. Thanks for having us!
Stan & Tilly was very friendly and helpful. As we arrived they made us feel welcome and quickly showed us around before leaving us to settle in and get organised. They were always available if we needed anything. The cottage was very affordable and offered all the conveniences needed for self catering. We never felt we intruded on their privacy and also never felt intruded upon. It was especially comforting to know our coming and goings at all hours of the day (and night) did not have to inconvenience them.
We had a fantastic 5-week-stay at Stan and Tilly's place. The Garden Cottage is very clean, well looked after and is very spacious. It has all the necessary appliances. The accomodation is very close to many shops. Musgrave Centre, for example, is nearby even walking distance.
Stan and Tilly are lovely hosts, that have an open ear and good advice for their guests. They made sure that we felt welcomend and like home. If we ever visit Durban again, we will definately stay with Stan and Tilly!!
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.
