Hassiem's welcome was wonderful. The apartment was just perfect for us: right across the street from Durban's beach front and close to all amenities. The apartment is very convenient for a small family and is even better than described on the website. Bedding, towels, kitchenware, etc are excellent quality. Hassiem and his wife went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and at home in Durban. The cooking lesson (curry) and lovely spices were a real plus! Please do not change anything!
We had an amazing stay! My friends and I are students on exvhange from the states coming to durban for the weekend from Cape Town. Hassiem was a great host and provided us with everything we could've asked for. The apartment was nice and comfortable for three people
Amazing location right on the beach. Nice big flat with everything you need. Hassiem is a great host and super helpful. I'd stay there again without a doubt.
From the booking stages I already felt Hassiem's warmness. Booking was quickly confirmed and accepted. The place was as listed and much more. It had all the home appliances etc. Whatever extra we required was organised by Hassiem without any hassle. Him and his wife even brought some kiddies movies for our kids to watch, which they enjoyed. We were across the road from the North Beach, all Take Away places like Wimpy, Steers etc. were just across the road. We did not have parking inside the building but we parked across the road and there were 24hr security guards looking after the parking, we did not experience any theft etc. There were also regular police patrolls around the area. We had a wonderfull week and would recommend this accommodation to anyone anytime.
Hassiem was so incredibly helpful and followed up quickly. We arranged to have him pick us up from the airport, and he made us feel right at home when we were really jet lagged. He also made sure we had fruit, milk and water in the flat, and he even helped us carry our (heavy) luggage to the place very late at night. The flat itself is cute, fully stocked with dishes/linens and comfortable for 2 people (maybe 3 if there is a couple). There are quite a few restaurants around and it's really close to the beach. It's a pretty decent location in Durban. One thing to note is that Durban is experiencing shedding a few hours a day. When this happens, the electricity shuts off in the flat, and you have no hot water. The building doesn't have a generator (that we knew of). So, you have to be patient and wait for it to come back on if you want to take a hot shower. It wasn't too bad -- just between 10am and 12:30pm and only one of the 2 days when we were there. Most of the city is this way, so I wouldn't be surprised if every Airbnb place in Durban has this issue right now. All in all, my mom and I would recommend staying there.
A really excellent host who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and was very attentive to all the little details. If anything did not work he had it fixed or replaced almost instantly and even went to the trouble of providing milk and fruit and spices for our arrival. Plenty of towels and bed linen and he even arranged WiFi. Having a washing machine, dishwasher and detergents really made it a home from home. The apartment is actually really spacious for 2 and works OK for 4. Even though there is no sea view it's a very short walk to the beach which makes it fantastic. Parking was on the street but guarded and there was no problem for the 2 weeks we were there. Being on the 1st floor was also an advantage since the lift kept breaking down!
I would strongly recommend the apartment and the owner and will certainly use it again if in Durban.
We had a fantastic time in Durban and we loved staying at Hassiem's apartment. It was centrally located, right across from North Beach which made it easy to get to everywhere we wanted.
The apartment had everything we needed and Hassiem was very helpful in organising transport for us from the airport, when we arrived quite late in the evening.
I would definitely recommend staying at Hassiem's place. We hope to go back!
