  • Carol and Keith have been most welcoming and made our stay in Durban highly enjoyable! The premises have been in great shape and very comfortable, and both of them went out of their way to accommodate for any needs. Furthermore, Keith has been providing us with great insider tips of the area - so do take his advice :)

  • Carol was simply fantastic. We were welcomed with strawberries and chocolate cup cakes on the kitchen table and a generally warm and beautiful home. Will definitely make a return visit when next in Durban.

Art Curator
I am an art curator working in South Africa and internationally. My husband Keith and I enjoy hosting people and therefore find airbnb a great occupation. We have a house which is over a hundred years old which we have modernized over the years. The self catering apartments are all in our tropical garden and guests enjoy the peace and calm whilst being close to the city. We have always and still travel extensively with Paris being a favorite destination. We also collect art which enhances our environment.
