I could not be happier with my choice to stay at this apartment in Durban. My host, Hassiem, is a very gracious, welcoming and generous man. The apartment was just as described on his listing and more. The location was perfect for easy access to the beach, restaurants and local hotels. Even though the weather was not the usual sunny Durban while I was there, access to the piers and all the local amenities and culture was easily accessible and easy to get to. Because of the proximity of other hotels, taxis were readily available at all hours.
The apartment had more than enough space for me. It had everything I needed for my stay. The place was clear and fresh smelling. The place was secure and had a round-the-clock security/lobby assistant. I did not experience any issues with noisy neighbors event during weekend nights.
Hassiem was great at communicating with me and working out arrangements. He offered to pick me and other conference attendees up at the airport for an additional fee. This was very helpful as we arrived late and were not too sure how the conference shuttles would work. This allowed us to go straight to locations without having to share a large bus with multiple people.
Hassiem is very open to sharing about himself and his context in Durban and also very interested in learning about his guests.
I highly recommend this listing. Thanks Hassiem!
It was my first experience using air bnb. What a first!
Hassiem very quickly responded and arranged to meet us at the apartment when we arrived, which was going to be very late in the evening.
I was traveling with my husband and two sons.
Hassiem met us and helped us with our luggage. I was very impressed with the place. My sons loved it even more because of the selection of movies and the spacious lounge. It is also a hop and a skip to the beach.
I was pleasantly surprised by how spacious the apartment is. Everything I needed was there. I just needed to bring my clothes that's all!
Thanks Hassiem for being such a warm host. You will definitely be seeing me again!
Hassiem was very friendly and flexible with our travel plans (which were very last minute). The location is great and a minute walk from the beach. The pictures were accurate in depicting the listing and the beds were very comfortable. Only issues were a small cockroach problem and the TV was tricky to use. The WiFi wasn't working but Hassiem was very helpful by telling us about near-by locations where we could find WiFi.
Nice one bedroom apt. right across from the beach in Durban. Several restaurant options within walking distance. Joe Cool's is right across the street if you are looking for a boozy night. 10 min walk up the beach is Circus Circus where you can have breakfast on the beach. Apt. was clean and tidy and safe. It is on the first floor so the street gets noisy outside early in the morning. Hassiem met me at the apt. and was just a phone call away if I needed anything. Towels in the bath and although we didn't cook the kitchen had all the necessary cutlery and crockery.
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.
