From the beginning Simon and Emma were super helpful. Gave us all the good surfing spots, helped us in relation to getting boards (because we were traveling light) and where to get the best breakfast your likely to encounter in the Durban area. The apartment is stunning, perfect for everything. So comfortable for a braai or beautiful dinner in the front sun room. And the view, the sea breeze, its the perfect place if you just want to get away from it all. The beach is right there! And not full of people! Its quiet and peaceful. Check in & check out is a breeze, not complicated at all and I have experienced a few air bnb "lengthy" checkins/ checkouts. Lovely, genuine, friendly people coupled with an awesome pad by the beach. You'd be nuts to get a hotel in the same area!
Simon and Emma's place is stunning, they even left a birthday note and bubbly for my mom. My parents thoroughly enjoyed their stay at this perfect location a stone throw away from the beach.
Simon and Emma have a most beautiful 2 bedroom apt. On the oceanfront. Very clean with all the amenities you would want. The outside deck is perfect for a bbq or braai as they call it here. Airconditioning works perfect. A greatdeal on a great place. You can not go wrong here. We loved it.
The apartment is perfectly located; it is very close to the beach and has the most amazing view of the ocean. It is beautifully furnished and very well equipped – it had everything we needed, and more. Simon is a fantastic host and super nice guy with whom communication was a pleasure. Ian, who met us at the apartment to show us around, is a really lovely guy who made us feel right at home - we could not have asked for more. I highly recommend this apartment, and we will definitely be back!
Great place to stay - couldn't have asked for more
