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.
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!
