This beautiful hotel suite style unit with lovely sea, park and city views is situated in Parkview Apartment Block on the 6th floor.

The apartment is fully equipped with everything you would need just bring yourself and your good attitude!

Interaction with Guests
The friendly staff assist with the checking in and out of guest at the reception area of the Apartment Block and they also handle any inquiries and anything else that guest may need. I am more than happy to assist guest with advice of where to go and what to do when in sunny Durban. Although I do not live in the Apartment Block I do assist with check in to meet and greet guest's.
The Apartment is situated along Durban's Golden Mile with the warm Indian ocean on your door step and plenty of restaurants and entertainment. It's summer all year round in Durban so the beaches have shark nets making for safe bathing and surfing. Why not learn to surf as there are many experienced surfers along the beach front offering surfing lessons. There is a supermarket next door and offers most items. They also have an ATM, Lottery machine and offer Mango air tickets for local travel. The Post Office is a block away and the Library is across the road in the Park.
The following places of interest are in close proximity to the Apartment:
SunCoast Casino and Entertainment World
Ushaka Marine World famous for its spectacular aquarium, shark cage diving, dolphin, seal and penguin shows and its endless entertainment that caters for the whole family.
Moses Mabhida Stadium has magnificent views of the city via the cable cart and plenty of restaurants.
The Old Fort Museaum houses many memorials and features of historical importance
Mr Price King’s Park Rugby Stadium and the Kingsmead Stadium
The Natal Playhouse entertainment theatre situated in the City Centre hosts a wide range of productions that are sure to keep you entertained.
Amphitheatre Flea Market is well known as one of the best destinations to purchase African art and curios. 0.10km
Wilsons Wharf is Durban’s trendiest fusion of fun food, top shows and crafts, blended with the rustic interface of a boating marina and working (website hidden) Botanic Gardens are a few minutes’ walk from the bustling Warwick Triangle, site of one of the largest retail medicinal plant markets in the country. The Gardens hosts thousands of visitors per year, many of whom are foreign tourists.
The People Mover’s is much better and cheaper public transport and the bus stops right outside the Apartment. It’s route is in and around the city centre only. Rates are R5 per trip or R15 per day. bus departs every 15 minutes from 6:30-23:00.
There are many of these parked outside the Apartment charging various rates and some can be very unreliable. I recommend guest to phone Eagle Taxi or Zippy Cabs who are reliable, safe, reasonable and offer a 24 hour service.
This is also a cheap way to get around the city centre and outside neighborhoods but beware as occupants are squeezed in and the mini buses usually play very loud music. It is however a very African transport experience!
The airport shuttle operates to and from the airport, leaving every hour. The bus will collect you from the Apartment and rates are R70 per person. Collections must be booked in advance.

A modern, clean and friendly appartement in a "old" Hotel. Nice Portier and desc woman made us a friendly welcome. The restaurant in Hotel looked like a Hospital kitchen, nothing for us but the woman at the entrace told us: good and cheap! Walking distance to the big beachwalk of Durban. It was a nice stay for one night

Hi, I am self employed doing event management and currently working on my Masters in Development Studies. After many visits to the beautiful City of Cape Town I have decided to make it my home. I am currently Iiving between the cities of Cape Town and Durban. I am in love with this city which is a melting pot of different cultures, art, creativity and friendly people.
My interest include reading, photography, travel and eating out. I enjoy meeting new people and experiencing different cultures.
