Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Carol and Keith are great hosts, we really enjoyed our stay in Durban. The Cottage is well equiped and decorated with love. Everything was very clean and safe. We would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and would always choose this place over a hotel.

  • We had such a wonderful stay in Durban and it was a pleasure meeting our hosts Carol & Keith. They have a beautiful cottage with a view of the swimming pool & the amazing plant life that grows in the region. Their cottage was comfortable, cozy, and the perfect size for a couple. The area was great as well. Just a hop, skip, and a jump from shops & restaurants. Next time we visit Durban we will definitely be staying Carol & Keith. Thank you for everything!

  • Durban is a beautiful city. Carol and Keith live in a very nice and quiet area. The place where we stayed is a mini apartment inside the house. The department is well organized and equipped with everything you might need. They gave us a lot of important information on tourist areas, maps, taxis, malls, money exchange, etc. We had plenty of privacy but when we need to them, they was there to help. They were incredibly nice to us and helped us a lot. We enjoyed our stay in your home.

    Durban es una ciudad hermosa. Carol y Keith viven en una zona muy linda y tranquila.
    El lugar donde nos hospedamos es un mini departamento dentro de la casa. El departamento está muy organizado y equipado con todo lo que podríamos necesitar. Ellos nos dieron mucha información importante sobre zonas turísticas, mapas, taxis, malls, casas de cambio, etc.
    Tuvimos mucha privacidad pero cuando los necesitamos, estaban ahí para ayudarnos. Ellos fueron increiblemente amables con nosotros y nos ayudaron mucho. Disfrutamos nuestra estadía en su casa.
    Completamente recomendable!

  • Carol and Keith have a lovely, centrally located home and are wonderful hosts. The cottage is comfortable and cozy, and looks out onto lush grounds and a pool. Keith and Carol were friendly, generous, helpful and responsive to my needs. Carol was instrumental in helping me find people in the city who could help me with my research. The next time I'm in Durban I'll definitely want to stay in one of the cottages again. I just left today and am already missing the cottage and plotting my return!

  • Keith and Carol are the most incredibly sweet and gracious hosts. The cottage is beautiful and I would love to stay here whenever I return to Durban.

  • Carol and Kieth's self catering studio cottage is an excellent place for rent. It is clean, bright, and comfortable and Carol and Keith are the perfect hosts - friendly and helpful while at the same time giving you your space and privacy. I especially enjoyed the garden, which is a quite refuge from the bustling city. The cottage is centrally located in a great and relatively safe part of Durban. There is everything you might need in walking distance and it is easy to get downtown, to the beach, and on the highway to go exploring.

  • Excellent accommodation, very convenient to reach easily the city center, situated in a very quiet neighborhood and close to shopping centers and restaurants. The kindness and discretion of the owners is very good, If I were to return to Durban will certainly go back to Carol.

  • Thanks to Carol and Keith, our stay was very comfortable, was very glad to have my car safe and off the street. The maps drawn for us were absolutely correct to deatail. If ever I need to stay over in Durban again, you can be rest assured I will look no further, for any accomodation.

  • This cottage offers everything you need, is very centrally located in a beautiful lush garden with friendly owners, who will ensure you have a pleasant stay.

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.
