We have garage secure parking.
This private and charming cottage is perfect for your affordable vacation. It is a one bedroom self-catering house with stunning seaviews from its own patio. The owners live in the next door house with their dogs. Set up like a beach cottage, we are located on the Bluff, a suburb in Durban. This home includes an open plan lounge which includes a queen-size bed, an en-suite bathroom and a separated fully furnished kitchen. The cottage leads on to its own private patio and garden with a wonderful 180 degree sea view. Guests are welcome to use the swimming pool and shared BBQ area which in Durban can be easily enjoyed right until winter. The place is attached to a main house, but separated by the white picket fence for your own privacy. Besides what is listed above, we have off-road parking in a garage for a sedan-sized vehicle. There is access to free wi-fi. There is a convenience store across the road (with laundry facilities), and a mini-grocery store which is less than a two minute drive. The property is also serviced by both municipal and private bus routes. Guests are welcome to enjoy as much privacy as they would like. We also live next door in our own house and are available should you need assistance during your stay. It is only 2 minute drive to the local beach and only 20 minute drive from downtown. Take a break from a busy city life. The Bluff has its own unique history and is the gem in Durban. It has some of the finest beaches in the area and can feel more like some tropical island spots than urban centres. The place overlooks the Indian Ocean and there is quick access to one of Durban's best kept secrets. There are rockpools for snorkelling with tropical fish, world class surfing and unspoilt beaches for summer walks. This quiet Bluff neighbourhood is peaceful and the spacious area takes away the rush of the busy city life. We are only 15 minutes away from downtown and from the main university campus. This cottage is part of the Bluff's fishing heritage, once home to Norwegian whalers and remains near the old whaling station, now derelict but still a fascinating place to visit. A five minute drive can also take you to the Green Dolphin restaurant or Heidi's Cafe at Anstey's Beach as well as the local shopping mall and gym. The property is serviced by municipal and private bus routes. There is off-road parking behind its own electric gate, suitable for a small vehicle only. Otherwise parking can be found on the verge outside the property. We have two dalmatians that are lovable. They stay next to the cottage entrance, and they are happy to keep a nightly vigil for you. They also live on the property and their area is kept clean and tidy.

  • Sean and Kathleen were the most amazing hosts! They met us very late with the keys to the AirBnB and had everything set up when we arrived. The listing is perfectly accurate and our stay was great!

    Janel2015-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely lovely people. Of course, Steve. st of course, Steve. stay there. Large, lovely space, I didn't have the time to sample the pool beyond a little taste, but it was delicious.

    Josee and Franco2017-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Thats place just amazing. It calm and quit but not so far from the center. Beautifull beach just few minutes drive, nice pool just at the garden and amazing ocean view from the bad - you waking up at morning and see ocean! But most amazing thing - Sean and Kathleen - it was like visit old friends. Hardly recomend this place.

    Serafim2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Sean and Kathleen are lovely host. Very accomodative and welcoming. The place is very nice and clean with a view that would take all your stress away. We spend a weekend here at there place. This place is very private and the locality is very calm. If you're looking for a calm and cosy stay in Durban, this is the perfect place for you. PS- If you're a dog lover, you would not want to miss a chance to see Spotty and Dotty!

    Sarang2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time in the cottage with the perfect view and would come back any time! Kathleen and Sean are super nice and went out of their way lending us snorkeling gear and binoculars to observe the whales! Spotty and Dotty came for cuddles every morning and made sure you start your day with a smile on your face! All in all a great stay, thank you so much!

    Kristina2017-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Sean and Kathleen are wonderful hosts and the place has a super view to the Ocean.

    Michaela2015-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sean and Kathleen were amazing hosts, very kind and helpful to me. I will definitely stay there next time I travel to Durban.

    Lisa2017-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • I think all of the previous reviews pretty much say it all. Sean and Kathleen's cottage is absolutely fantastic. Sea views that go on forever, plenty of space, and lots of little extras that are most appreciated - and far beyond what you'd expect to find for the price. The kitchen is possibly the best-stocked kitchen I've ever had in all my stays at self-catering places, complete with ground coffee and a stovetop espresso maker, plus complimentary eggs/milk/fruit for your first breakfast, and practical stuff like cling wrap, paper towel and salt. The bedroom/living room has huge cupboards with plenty of hangers. There are Lonely Planet guides to South Africa, Namibia and Botswana, plus information pamphlets on the local area. I really didn't want to leave. (One minor point to note is that there seems to be no Cell C signal at all in the cottage. It didn't really bother me, but could be an issue if you're on Cell C and need to be reachable via voice/SMS. Of course there's great Wifi in the cottage so you can always use instant messaging/VOIP apps if you have a smartphone.)

  • Lorraine's place is just as pictured and a delight to stay at. Listening to the waves break from our place was very peaceful and the quick walk to the beach made for lovely mornings. Lorraine was quick to respond with any questions that we had and provide us with dinner recommendations. We had a great time and would come back again.

    Jessica2017-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Lorraine's beach side cottage is absolutely lovely! We were lucky enough to be able to use the upstairs cottage, which was huge, with open plan living and kitchen, lovely and clean with a beautiful deck overlooking the ocean. There is beach access, and beautiful and very clean pool. The best air BnB experience we have had!! If you are in Port Shepstone you must stay here!

    Kylie2016-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lorraine and Pat have gone out of their way for us twice to ensure that we get the larger room and have everything we need! I cannot overstate how beautiful the place is, how practical, and how warm the welcome. It is the only place we will ever stay when we go to visit family on the South Coast, even though we have to drive a little further, The Beaches is well worth it. Thanks again both for such a wonderful stay.

    Phillipa2016-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Loved it from start to finish. I will return

    Hilton2016-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Lorraine for allowing us to stay in your garden cottage! The pictures your a posting here on airbnb do not even represent how beautiful your cottage, the garden and the beach actually are. Lorraine was a very very good host. We had everything we needed and felt comfortable. The beach in front of the house is completely unspoilt and you can swim in the beautiful rock pool. Fantastic!! We will definitly come back to Lorraine and Port Shepstone whenever we are in Durban area.

    Jasmin2015-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • I had a good time at the beaches. I was able to write, I needed a small writes retreat, it was quit, peaceful. Lorraine helped me to go to spar and she attended to all my queries. She is a lovely host.

    Roel2016-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lorraine and Pat were amazing hosts. The place is exactly as described. We loved hearing the sound of the ocean. We'd definitely recommend The Beaches to others travelling in the area.

  • Staying at Teresa's place was a great experience. The location is great with a superb sea view. Beach access is 5min walk. Durban city center is 15 min drive The apartment is very confortable and well furnished. Teresa and her family are great hosts. If we ever go back to Durban, we'll definitely stay there again.

    Davy2016-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Teresa's apartment is even better than the photos! It is modern, clean and very comfortable. The apartment is in a great location and the view is lovely. Teresa was incredibly accommodating to our late arrival and was always prompt communicating. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment! Thank you for having us!

    Nicole2016-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Satisfied with my stay Welcoming and available host good location - not far from the center and quiet street modern and practical

    vincent2016-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • The beach apartment was fantastic! The view from the roof was sublime and access to the beach was easy. Teresa made us feel very welcome, and the complimentary nespresso pods, milk and wine were a nice touch. The apartment was very close to the La Lucia mall which made shopping for groceries etc. convenient. Also very close to upscale restaurants in Umhlanga which made the stay even better. Many thanks - hope to return soon!

    Steve2016-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Teresa's apartment is beautiful and well decorated and equipped. You have the sea right on your doorstep.

    Carl2017-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Teresa's apartment is filled with light and space. Great access to a private beach. It was ideal for me and business partner. We were able to use the outdoor space for working on our laptops in the mornings. Lock up and go during the day and come back to the relaxing sound of the beach through the double volue glazing that looks into the Indian Ocean. I will be back to this property. Teresa is gracious, communicates well and goes above the average to ensure her guests are comfortable, book it now, or I will!

    Kaz2017-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • The unit is modern and clean. What you see in the pictures is what you get. I would recommend the venue

  • We really enjoyed our stay here. Marion and Andre are extremely welcoming and it was a real pleasure to share a part of their lovely home. We especially loved the breakfast which Andre served very cheerfully each morning - a great start to the day. A luxurious apartment only two blocks from the restaurants and bars and a few minutes walk to the beach. Many thanks

    Trevor2014-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed with Andre and Marion for 4 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. They are super helpful and gracious and the room is spacious and comfortable. The pictures don't show the nifty little kitchenette (microwave, fridge, dishes) which made it even a nicer place to lounge about when we were having some down time. Highly recommend Marion and Andre's place! Bonus: you may get a visit from the monkeys!

    Laura2016-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Marion, Andre and Sam are absolutely incredible people. They are easily the most hospitable people I have met since leaving my home country two months ago. Staying with them was a highlight in my travels across southern Africa. Their home is lovely and the accommodations are just as great as they look on the site. If you have the opportunity to meet this great family, don't miss out!!

    Tracy2014-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at Marion and Andre, they gave us a warm welcome and the house is beautiful and on a great location. They were super helpful with washing clothes and repairing things. we had great conversations with a view on the beautiful ocean! Thank you!!

    ANNE2016-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Marion and Andre made our three days experience in Umhlanga exceptional. The two make you feel as if you are part of their own family from the very beginning. The breakfast consists of everything you wish for: Juice, bread, bread rolls, butter, cheese, yogurt etc. The bedroom and your ensuite bathroom are very spacious, clean and tidy. Tea, coffee, milk, rusks, granola, fresh fruits are always available and you are also equipped with a microwave, a water boiler, a hair dryer and a hair straightener if needed. It takes only 5 minutes to the beach by foot and you even have an amazing view over the sea from the terrace. We had a wonderful time in Umhlanga and will certainly come back.

    Bastian2017-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Marion and Andre for two nights was a real luxury before heading to the Drakensberge. Andre always made sure that we have everything we need and gave us tips about the area (Umhlanga = very safe and walkable). We especially enjoyed the huge breakfast on our little private terrace with pool and sea view as well as the complimentary cereal bar.

    Eva2016-05-27T00:00:00Z

    Located on a canal-fronting site on the Durban Point Waterfront. Sail into the harbour, walk to uShaka Marine World or stroll along the scenic palm-lined canals. Enjoy self-catering accommodation and a lifestyle in this luxurious apartment.
    This superb unit can comfortably sleep 4 and is in the heart of it all, one of the finest residential buildings in the area with the most stunning view of a saltwater canal and uninterrupted sea views and the Durban golden mile. The substantial accommodation is sure to impress. Stylishly furnished throughout and magnificent views are all within this most exquisite quayside unit. Despite such a central position, the apartment is located in a quiet building. Well-equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, washing machine, microwave, toaster etc.
    The Durban Point Waterfront is one of the most exciting and significant development projects Durban has seen for decades. Destined to become one of Durban's most prestigious addresses. The Durban Point Waterfront is already an important, well-defined and exciting addition to the city and a sought after place to live, work and play. The Point Precinct covers the area from Bell Street to the harbour entrance and from the beachfront to Mahatma Gandhi Road (previously known as Point Road). The first development phase included the creation of uShaka Marine World a family entertainment park the fun water park, lots of restaurants and shops and the amazing Sea World
  • Great light-filled place, walking distance to uShaka. Was a warm place to take refuge in one of the biggest storms Durban has seen in a while.

    Darrin2016-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Really super spot, just on the beachfront. Ideal for those keen to spend some time on the beach, or at Ushaka. Very comfortable with wonderful views of the Durban skyline.

    Fiona2017-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We were made very welcome. There was a basket of fruit and a bottle of wine which we enjoyed. The directions were perfect and parking was extremely easy in the underground car park. The apartment was exactly as described and very clean and tidy. We were most happy.

    Richard2016-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • What a great experience! Very neat, safe and beautiful unit. Located close to all tourist attractions. Walking distance from uShaka Marine, Beach and a variety of restaurants. Will definitely recommend it to anyone. Thank you for a great experience!

    Jc2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second time staying here. Lauren is great and very responsive. Location and apartment are great. Everything you need is located in the apartment and it is within walking distance to the beach and driving distance to great restaurants.

    amee2016-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment was a major step up from where we have stayed in the past. It was a great apartment with private secure parking and a stunning view of the ocean. We would definitely stay there if ever we are in Durban again, it's close to the uShaka marine world, and has nice restaurants within short distances. Did I mention how comfortable the bed was and the homely feel of the apartment itself. We really felt like we lived there. With fresh fruit and wine provided by Lauren a nice touch to a rounded experience!!!

    E2016-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely apartment. Spotless; well appointed; magnificent views; great parking; we could not have asked for anything. Fruit and wine when we arrived - what a lovely touch. We cannot recommend Lauren's apartment highly enough. The location too is excellent. We were 110% happy. A 5 star experience.

    Helen2017-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing flat, and incomparable hosts! Lauren and Larry went out of their way to book us without notice after a problematic first booking at another place. They enabled early check in and late check out, and seriously rescued us. The flat itself is lovely- clean, bright, great views, well appointed. We loved walking to uShaka and the beach by Moyo. Perfect for families, couples, business or pleasure travelers. Highly recommend! We hope to return ourselves

    Sweeping sea views, sleep to sound of crashing waves. Stylish 2 roomed self catering cottage. Frequent whale, dolphin sightings. Double bedroom en suite. Single sleeper for 3rd person in kitchen area but limited privacy as bathroom off bedroom. See pics. Brighton Beach is 12 km south of Durban, unspoiled natural beach accessible by foot. Very RETRO feel to Bluff. Need travel to Durban for night life, fine dining! Need car. Here it is very peaceful, private & SAFE. Hot tub on upstairs veranda.
    Only have one cottage on my property so space is very private. Gas barbecue on guest patio. Shower in unit - no bath. Hot tub on upstairs veranda of main house. Easy access. Also flat terrain - no steps, unless coming to upstairs veranda. There is a steep slope at end of garden - warning for small children. Kitchen has hob and convection microwave for cooking - plus barbecue. Your space looks down over sand and sea - no roofs of buildings.
    This is definitely a residential neighbourhood. The beach forms part of a nature conservancy so any building down there is a historical mistake. Small pools for kids and a big tidal pool for serious swimming. Rough sea and rocks but there are designated beach bathing areas with life guards. About 8 minutes walk from cottage down to beach. Quite a steep hike but does not seem to deter guests at all. There are no taxi ranks, no hotels and no fine restaurants on Bluff. 2 modern shopping centres with every fast food outlet including McDonalds - and for the discerning, a Woolies Fine Food Shop about 500m away. This destination is quite the opposite of Umhlanga which is edge to edge hotels and restaurants. Our beach has easy access, plenty parking. Step out of car and on to the sand. Most of our guests will travel from Bluff to sight see city and Umhlanga and eat in style during days and then come back to Bluff to enjoy the sea and best South Africa wine without a worry about drinking and driving.
  • This place is absolutely stunning! It is located in a very nice are directly at the each. From its garden you can watch whales and dolphins passing by. This stay was a once in a lifetime experience. Any time we left, we were looking forward of coming back to this marvelous view. There is also a housekeeping service which makes the stay very comfortable. Helena is very helpful and friendly. We would love coming back soon!

    Marie2017-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • A little piece of paradise ! The view is amazing, the place well equipped, and Helena is a great host. We enjoyed having breakfast on the terrace, and spending time in the jaccuzzi. Definetily recommending it !

    Arthur2017-06-16T00:00:00Z

    Gnilane2016-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Charming, private apartment on The Bluff overlooking the Indian Ocean. The garden view is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine or cup of coffee. Helena stocked the kitchen with coffee, tea, juice, milk, cookies, fresh fruit, a bottle of wine, and other odds and ends. She even offerred to pick up a few additional things for us since we were arriving after shops closed. The cottage was perfect for a couple. (A daybed in the kitchen also makes a third guest possible.) Helena was very available and attentive to our needs but also respectful of our privacy. We would definitely recommend the cottage as a base for your stay in Durban!

    Laura2015-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Helena is a warm host, easy to contact and relaxed about changes to check in and out times - really helps when your holiday is not on a time pressure. The cottage is below the main house so not a separate property but we felt totally alone and never saw anyone from the main house in passing. Jacuzzi is attached to the main house (so above the cottage) but Helena went out of her way to keep the space private for us - who wants a bikini top in a jacuzzi anyway! No oven in the kitchen but there is a Weber and Helena provided coals. The fridge is small but served our 3-night needs perfectly. She even leaves milk and rusks along with tea coffee and sugar, very thoughtful. Beach is quite busy and there was broken glass and litter on the sections close to the parking lot but a bit further away the beach is lovely. View of the ocean from the cottage is completely stunning. The swing on the lawn in front of the cottage absolutely made the stay for me, I thoroughly enjoyed reading there with a nice cup of tea in the mornings. The cottage is cleaned daily by a discrete and lovely lady, so nice not to have to do any washing up while on holiday. Plenty of fresh luxurious towels supplied. The shower is a DREAM! If you leave the bathroom door open you can even get a sea view from there. FYI the wifi is on the slow side so not ideal for a 'working holiday' but will suffice for simple email check ins and social media browsing. Bottle store right down the road for those last-minute beers but the convenience store is a bit shabby, we bought our groceries in Durban which I think is a better choice. Overall a beautiful spot to kick back and forget the city. That view from the bed made my day over and over. Ideal for a cosy, mellow reading holiday with zero distractions. The sound of the waves and nothing else was a total pleasure for a city girl.

    Colleen 2016-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning view and location

    Deborah2016-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay with amazing ocean view. Helena provided us with very helpful information around Durban and was very nice to me and my friends.

    Emanuel2015-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • I would recommend Baileys beach cottage anyday. It is lovely accommodation, with a positive energy. The view of the ocean is perfect and we saw dolphins every day. Helena was very welcoming (with Elliot her right hand man ready to assist with everything) and i think you could ask most things of her and it would not be a problem. The accommodation is clean (serviced thoroughly on a daily basis), the beds are comfortable and the shower ... amazing :-) and the added bonus, max the dog always ready with a big lick. I could not have asked for a more perfect place to take my elderly mother on holiday. I think it's an ideal venue for a couple to stay.

    Bailey's Beach Cottage
    64 reviews
    Our comfortable thatched cottage is set in an enormous, established garden within a beautiful Security Estate. This is a gardener's retreat! Listen to the birds sing, explore the garden spaces and soak up the peacefulness found in this place. We have 3 cottages privately positioned in the garden : perfect for family reunions or wedding parties.
    Our secret garden cottage is peaceful, comfortable and private. Access from the highway is quick and easy and once you are here, you will feel like you are miles away from the world we live in. This makes it a really convenient and rejuvenating base from which to explore the Midlands. The covered verandah overlooks the expansive garden : the perfect place to relax and have your coffee while enjoying the dawn of a new day. Inside the cottage the space feels cosy and spacious with the high thatched roof wrapping around you. The flow between all the open plan spaces is well thought through, giving a sense of great ease. You will love to watch the stars twinkle at night from this little haven.
    Howick is well known for its absolutely beautiful weather, its gentle scenery and more recently its become famous for its very popular lunch destination, The Farmers Daughter at Yard 41 ! The setting is awesome, it overlooks the spectacular Falls gorge and the architecture is getting rave reviews. What a great new place to savour, with a trendy gift and decor shop, a world class nursery, a hip cycling shop and a busy hair salon to add to the vibe. This is a friendly part of the world! There is lots to do ! The Midlands Meander is popular for all sorts of reasons : The world famous Mandela Monument is close by, Midmar dam is across the road, Steampunk is within easy reach. ( Best coffee in town ) Piggly Wiggly is a great place for a family outing and hosts the popular weekly Park Run on a Saturday at 8am. Children love the putt putt course, the train ride and dipping candles. The Karkloof Market on a Saturday morning also is a great way to start the day. Cycling routes abound in the area.This is cycling heaven! The Karkloof Canopy tour is an exciting experience. And if you enjoy a good hike, the Howick Falls Gorge Walk gives you a really rewarding experience at the foot of the mighty waterfall. The Wessa Umgeni Nature Reserve is right on our doorstep. The zebras are as tame as ever you might imagine! You may even like to volunteer some time looking after wild animals at Freeme... There is more than enough exploring to do in this well loved part of South Africa. Welcome to hospitable KZN. And remember... our sectet garden cottage has quick access onto the highway, which makes it the perfect stop-over and the perfect base ! We will look after you with good old fashioned hospitality standards!
  • We enjoyed our short stay in one of Angela's cottages. This family went out of their way in preparing our cottage, and making it as comfortable as possible. Such a refreshing experience in the peek Decembe rush. I would love to return to this sweet spot again. The cottage also has a garden view which you can enjoy from the little stoep. It was well equipped and stocked with sweet homemade surprises and great ground coffee. Ange even sent us off with a bag of vegetables from her veg garden. Such delightful hosts!

  • Angela is the loveliest host! She is extremely warm and welcoming. She left us some home grown vegetables to sustain us through our revision sessions and some sherry for the evenings! Her place is idyllic and the gardens that surround it are beautifully peaceful. You can just see part of the main house through the bushes from your rondaval but there is no noise and the way the gardens have been separated you do have your own private and spacious area. Two very friendly dogs like to visit which we loved! Although on the smaller side the cottage has everything you need to self cater. There is a fridge, microwave, kettle and a plug in electric pan/slow cooker combo which works very well. (We didn't use the toaster, but I'm sure there was one) Great selection of crockery and cutlery. The outside area is very comfortable to sit in, even when it is raining. Angelas husband and children are all lovely and they welcomed us like good friends. Angela strikes a fabulous balance between leaving you to your privacy and sharing her home and generosity with you. I really hope we get the opportunity to visit you again!

  • Really enjoyed staying here - and would do so again!

    Daniyel2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very brief stay, but there is nothing to fault. Angela is a warm and friendly host that communicated exceptionally well with us. The cottage is clean, cozy and very comfortable. Hard to beat it in terms of value for money. Would definitely return for a longer stay. Thank you Angela.

    Anton2017-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Angela's place is an absolutely beautiful, tranquil location and she was such a lovely host, who couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The Rondavel is beautifully decorated - very envious of the gorgeous vases and vintage furniture! Angela also provided lovely treats like homemade biscuits and muesli :) The surroundings are full of (friendly) small wildlife like some local deer, and so so many birds. It would make a lovely yoga retreat...! The midlands itself is full of activity, with the excellent and professional Karkloof canopy tour my favourite by far. Also, so many places to eat - Farmers Daughter and Delish Dish were highlights and the Karkloof Farmers Market on Saturdays is just brilliant - local cheeses, veg, sauces and chutneys as well as delicious, on the day, coffee and breakfasts. Looking forward to the next visit already!

    Debbie2017-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • A comfortable and well appointed rondavel. It had everything we needed. Unfortunately, we arrived in late evening and had to leave early the next morning. We would have loved to have had a longer stay so that we could have enjoyed more of the peaceful ambiance.

    Peter2017-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very relaxing stay in this beautiful rondavel. The garden is lovely and Angela is a very welcoming host!

    Elias2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • My mom and I were thoroughly impressed by Angela's place. It is well located and easy to find. It is set on a beautiful country property surrounded by trees and gardens. We really felt far away from the real world. Our cottage was clean and very comfortable with electric blankets and a mini kitchen. Angela was such a great host. She was friendly and helpful. She even welcomed us with a glass of sherry and home-baked banana bread. It was the perfect spot for a mother-daughter weekend in the Midlands Meander and we would definitely go back anytime. Highly recommended!

    Leanne2017-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Meredith was very accommodating and helpful upon our arrival and departure. The entrance was slightly difficult to find because of detour / construction works, however it wasn't a problem and we were quickly directed to where we were supposed to go. Stunning view from the apartment and quick access to beach/promenade/uShaka. Great accommodation for our family of 4 with more than enough space...exactly what is advertised in the photographs. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Meredith and Marco

    Ruth2016-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • The place was beautiful and as advertised. The walkway to the beach and uShaka was awesome and convenient. And our host were great. They met us with the key, provided us with a "things to do guide in Durban", answered our questions and offered to assist with any other questions. They also left us with great welcome gifts like a bottle of wine, local beer and light snacks. I would recommend this host and place to other travelers in Durban.

    Nikia2016-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • My stay was FANTASTIC... Meredith and baby Zoe were on hand to welcome us on our arrival and the way they welcomed us made us feel like they were loving relatives we just hadn't seen in a while. Meredith kept constant communication the whole time and has decorated her apartment in a way that brings such a homely ambience to it. I have found a new holiday home in Durban : >) Thank you so much Meredith. You made our Durban stay memorable.

    sipho2016-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely stay here. The place is beautiful. Very clean. The views are amazing. The host went over and above to ensure that our stay was good. I would highly recommend this place.

    Zoleka2017-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • The view and general airiness of the place made us feel like we were actually IN the ocean. Waking up in the morning to a breeze from the sea and billowing white curtains is how every beach holiday should start. Meredith and Marco where totally welcoming and the place is lovely lock up and go and quite easy to maintain and enjoy during your stay.

    Rachel2016-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at Meredith's apartment. Loved the decor and the relaxed vibe. The kitchen was well equipped and all amenities were top notch. We will definitely be back again.

    Lynnae2017-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Meredith’s apartment is beautifully decorated and fully stocked/amenitized. The floor to ceiling windows look out onto Durban and the beach- perfect location for people who want to be walkable to the beach or uShaka Marine World. Though, it was a bit out of the way and difficult to find, especially with road closure detours and a confusing entrance to the building. Our flight was delayed and we were unable to meet Meredith in person, but she left us very sweet welcome gifts consisting of fruit, muffins, and wine. These little extras add a nice touch. The only issue we had was with the internet. The profile specifies 1 GB Internet is included, but it was not loaded when we arrived. Meredith was very responsive and quick to add the data. However we received the “out of bundle” message again the next day. Usually 1 GB lasts over a week on my phone, so there is no way it was used in a couple hours of basic browsing. Reliable internet may not be a priority for most guests, but I had a virtual conference meeting the following day and was counting on the internet being available. It caused a bit of stress and I had to use my phone as a hotspot. All in all, I would definitely recommend this airbnb!

    Jeff2014-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely experience at Umdloti Beach north of Durban. The house has a wonderful atmosphere with a stunning view of the ocean. The children loved the swimming pool although the water was very cold. The only challenge was wifi, it worked perfectly the first day but on the second the day the quota was reached and it slowed down, perhaps the children downloaded too many bites. It would be good for guests to know whether access to wifi is unlimited, otherwise a wonderful experience and would recommend this house, especially for big families or large groups, it is value for money!

    Paul2015-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • It was à great house, most important it felt like à home. We lovend THE patio. Great views om THE see and watching the boats. Plenty of space in THE house for our familie. After al THE impressions of south Afrika, we just relaxed there and chilled on THE beach. Owners live on THE property, but enough privacy. Gillian, THE owner is à warm person and helps you if you want for example with restaurants etc. Worth every Penny

    Eric2016-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Apart from the weather, we had a lovely stay and hope to be back again sometime. The place surpassed expectation and it is a lovely, inviting place. The view was beautiful, we saw whales and dolphins ... and were visited by the cheeky monkeys in the area. The resident dog, Piper was a sweetheart who popped in briefly to say hi a couple of times a day. I would go back in a heartbeat ... and can only imagine how much more enjoyable it will be in good weather.

    Jenny2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a fantastic holiday here. Gillian and Dez were superb hosts - they made us feel so welcome, gave us great advice on where to eat, shop and beach AND even baby sat our 1yr old so that the whole famly could go out for a dinner one night! Despite being on the same property, they perfectly walked the line between making us feel welcome and letting us have our own space. Gillian also provided us with baby gates, a cot and high chair for our little girl. Fantastic hosts all round! The location is great too. Such a beautiful sea view to wake up to in the morning. As the crow flies the beach is actually only a few hundred metres away, but unfortunately there's no cut through to reach it. Nevertheless, in only a 2min drive you're there. Our baby girl loved the rock pools. We hope to be back!

    DanNKate2015-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Gill was so warm and welcoming to her little slice of heaven. And wow, it really felt like we were in paradise. The house is beautiful and has everything you could need. The pool was gorgeous and the view breath-taking. My sister and I live in London and were back for a visit with our parents. We wanted to take them away and have a real family holiday. The house was absolutely perfect. And apart from going to the shops and visiting the beach a few times, we just stayed at the house because why would we want to go anywhere else when you had everything you could want right there!? This includes the hilarious game of 30 Seconds and an eclectic and fantastic library. There is no doubt that if we are planning another trip, we will have Gill's house as first on our list. Big thanks to Gill for such a magical and memorable holiday.

    Cat2014-11-09T00:00:00Z

    Little Fields is a small piece of rural heaven in the KwaZulu Natal Midlands. Set just outside of Hilton, overlooking fields and pastures, this country house is 5 minutes away from amenities yet offers you a tranquil setting to rest, whether you are traveling for business or pleasure. Built in a converted barn style with ivy clad walls, the house is set in beautiful meadow like gardens and has far reaching views over a wetland, two small dams and the neighboring farm.
    We offer many different bedding options from a self-catering flat with its own private entrance and garden; two family bedrooms in a separate wing of the house; or book the entire 4 bedroom house.
    Rural setting between Hilton and Howick, at the start of the famous Midlands meander route.
  • We loved our stay in Little Fields: the beautifully furnished and decorated country house was comfortable and charming! We were allowed to make a fire in the private living room and to sit on the veranda enjoying the amazing view. The two children-friendly dogs always joined us - as we love dogs, they were very welcome!

    Silvia2015-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • We were a group of 8 guys heading down to Karlkloof for a mountain biking weekend and needed a 'base' for our adventure. From the outset, Di was very accommodating, friendly and professional. She answered all my questions promptly and went out her way to accommodate 8 guys by laying out extra single beds for us to sleep on. The home is absolutely stunning! The view from the back veranda is phenomenal and the fireplace kept us warm in cold July evenings. We opted to have a hot breakfast cooked for us by the housekeeper Zodwa and her dishes were amazing! Best way to start a day. I would highly recommend this location. I will definitely be coming back. Thank you Di for hosting us!

    Nemanja2016-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Di's end of the house apartment is actually much nicer than the pictures might tell you. As I came, the outstanding views were framed by lush garden and flowers. Everything is well maintained and taken care of.

    Teppo2015-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Another lovely stay at Little Fields. Great base for exploring Howick area in a country setting. The bran muffins at breakfast were our favourite.

  • What an amazingly gorgeous home! Di kept in touch before we arrived ensuring a completely stress free experience and was on the end of SMS if I needed her during our stay. The home was absolutely beautiful and offered every comfort. It truly felt like a home away from home (that is if ours was superbly decorated and well put together!). There were thoughtful touches throughout the home and clearly our hosts where just made for the hospitality industry. The images on the website didn't prepare me for such a stunning home. We will be back!

All amenities listed were available and more than enough food was provided for breakfast. The location was beautiful and Di was an amazing host. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area.

    Our home offers a luxurious self catering option with shared access to all of the common areas of our home: living, dining and kitchen, verandahs, pool and outside entertainment, for the duration of your stay. We have a relaxed outdoor braai area alongside the pool and plenty of garden to relax in.
    Central Durban North with vibey upmarket shops, takeouts, cafes, restaurants, shopping malls all within walking distance. One of my favourite eateries is the Wok Box an Asian fusion restaurant. Great burgers can be had at both Rocco Mama and Union Square. We have a great cycle route close by and you can hire bikes at Bean and Bike on the Beachfront as well as pick up a fabulous early morning coffee. Great city bus tours and walking city market tours are available. Umhlanga has a great promenade as does the Durban beachfront for awesome early morning or early evening walks or cycles.
  • We enjoyed the personal touch. Everything from chocs on the bed, to shampoo in the shower. It was all there. The direct entrance into the accommodation was great.

  • This was our 1st time using AirBnB, and this proved to be a well deserved getaway. The expectation was overwhelming and didn't know what's awaiting. Irene and Dudley where awesome and welcomed us like we have met them before. The excitement was mutual and gave each other a big hugs. They are great hosts and would not think twice to stay with them again. Their home was just that, a home. The environment was calm, relaxing any peaceful. One could actually hear yourself thinking, the house was very quite. Irene&Dudley's family is super!

    Pettula2015-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful house Irene and dudleys. Let me start by saying thank you so much for your hospitality. Lovely and fantastic Couple and hosts. Our room was comfortable and cozy. Fresh bottled water and snacks in the fridge made us feel at home. Quite neighborhood and very close to some restaurants and supermarkets. Uber was so easy to use to move around. Irene and Dudley invited us for dinner and it was so nice getting to know them and their kids. We are definitely coming back. Thank You so much Lesley & Khona Italia

    Lesley 2017-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommendable! we enjoyed the extraordinary hospitality of Irene & Dudley. They welcomed us with plenty of fresh fruit and a stored up fridge for our use. The house is nicely situated off the noise and smog of the city. The rooms are very cozy and tastefully furnished. The required facilities were all there. We were on top of that invited to use the rest of the family rooms and the garden. Shops, restaurants and a little shopping center can be reached safely in easy walking distance. All the family members were very helpful with information - special thanks to Robyn who was always around when we needed some help and even organized a tour for us. We would definitely stay there again.

    Josef2017-08-15T00:00:00Z

  • We had a lovely stay in Durban. Irene and Dudley were incredibly hospitable and welcoming- they provided many amenities including yummy snacks, toiletries and even a bottle of wine when we couldn't get to the bottle shop! They treated us like house guests and gave us great advice for the rest of our trip in south africa. The rooms are clean and well equipped and the back yard is beautiful- the photos don't do it justice. Highly recommended and great value for money.

    Frances2016-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my girlfriends had such a great time at this place! We felt so welcome when we arrived (earlier than in-checking time!) by the daughter of Irene and Dudley. The house is so cosy but it also felt like living in a hotel with chocolate on the pillow and soft towels on the bed. We had such a nice time in Durban and Robyn (the daughter) helped us finding places on the beach where we could rent bikes and learn to surf. The house had a great pool that we used a couple of times and the security was on top with big gates and alarm. We are going to miss this place and will recommend it to all our friends and family, we are also going to miss the dog Leya that was running around the house - she was adorable! Thank you so much!!

    A beautiful Private getaway with breathtaking sea views. Five minutes to shopping centers, the beach, golf course and gym. Complete with an infinity pool, wrap around verandas, jungle gym. Serviced daily. The perfect place to relax and unwind. Inquire for special rates for under six guests.
    The whole home and garden will be yours for the duration of you stay.
    This home is in a quiet little suburb called the Bluff. It is about a 25 minute drive from Durban and about an hour from the Durban airport. Once you have arrived there are enough things to do on the Bluff that you don't have to go far.
  • The house is amazing, with incredible views and amenities. Happiness the housekeeper is extremely helpful and adds an extra amount of charm to your stay. As the listing recommends, I would suggest hiring a car, as Uber is available in Bluff but sometimes unreliable and costly if you plan to head to the city multiple times.

    Peter2017-10-01T00:00:00Z

  • Bronwin is very nice and welcome us in the best way. The house is big and very beautiful with a fantastic view over the ocean. The swimming pool is an area of peace and beauty.The house is well located in a nice neighborhood 15 minutes by car from the centre of Durban. Thus, we really recommend this house if you want to take a good break during a trip in South Africa.

    Nicolas2016-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is the most beautiful, scenic home I have ever stayed at. Happiness (the housekeeper) was super friendly and kept the house clean. From 3 of the 4 bedrooms, you wake up with an incredible view of the waves and a beautiful sunrise. Bronwyn came in the first day to check us in and is very friendly ☺️.

    Abbas2017-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • The Bluff area is a residential one. Quite nice. The house is five minutes walking from the beach. Our experience was great. The house is amazing with a wonderful view over the ocean. You sleep with the waves sound taking care of you. Really a good choice. I really want to thank Bronwyn for the kind hospitality. A special thank to Happiness too (the house maid).

    Marco2016-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, incredible views, even a visit from a monkey. Secure, with lovely dogs watching over driveway. We ubered it all over town from here, and Happiness, the maid, is just amazing!

    Philip 2016-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Mike and Bronwyn you have an excellent property. We've enjoyed every minute at this house. This was my first time in Durban and we end up going to the city but we found out that it is much better to say home and enjoy watching dolphins and whales. Happiness (the house keeper) is great she had been very helpful. Thanks for extending our stay and every time we are back kin South Africa, this will be our destination.

  • Anneke' cottage was awesome! Very clean, very well prepared, great location close to the freeway. Anneke was very helpful and also let me have my privacy, which I value. I always knew that she could help me out if I needed it. The ooonly issue I ran into was that I could never get the wifi to connect. Other than that, great place to stay.

We were offered umbrellas for the rain! The place is clean and we would recommend anyone to go there. We will be back. Thanks for making our stay so pleasant. Cass and Waza.

  • Review from my parents (who stayed with Anneke & Kees) "We were made most welcome on arrival and throughout our stay. The cottage was cozy and fulfilled all our needs. Little details of chocolates and flowers in the room showed thought and caring from our hosts. Set in a beautiful garden with pool. A definite venue to return to and have already referred to others. It is a friendly home from home. An amazing couple for hosts - thank you so much Anneke and Kees. We really appreciated your hospitality."

The apartment was very neat and clean and it was well decorated. It felt very homely to stay there. The holiday resort was very well kept with nice amenities. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Lelani2017-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • We spent four nights in this unit. It met all our expectations in terms of how it was described, Gordon was an excellent host and was particularly helpful as we had a wheelchair and needed to know if it would be easy to get around at the resort (it was). The resort staff were also very accommodating. I didn't think the unit was outdated in terms of furnishings - certainly not ultra modern but comfortable and cottagy.

  • Absolutely ideal! A fantastic base for a relaxing and scenic getaway. The apartment is very comfy and well equipped, clean, spacious, safe and - most importantly - the views are just picture perfect. Very close to the local amenities and beach, but also plenty of in-house creature comforts for an evening in, like a big screen telly with a range of movies and accessories, open plan kitchen ideal for cooking and a balcony that makes sundowner cocktails taste better. Mano was a lovely, friendly and very accommodating host, a pleasure to deal with. Definitely recommended.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Mano's place in Ramsgate. Lovely sea view from the patio and the main bedroom. All the amenities were there for our stay. Loved the entertainment centre with many movies and series available. Best beach in Ramsgate and a short walk away. Waffle House is also very close by. Would have loved a 10 or 11am checkout considering that we checked-in at 2pm. Will definitely stay there again

    Harsha2017-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful home, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view were amazing, and the house was walking distance from the beach which was a major plus. Besides the home, Mano was a great host. Check in was easy and hassle free!

    Lee2017-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • Mano was an excellent host from beginning to end. He made sure that we checked in alright. Gave very easy to follow directions of where to pick up the key. Which was just across from the apartment. He was easy to contact when we needed him. We had an issue with the DSTV and he fixed it up real fast and checked that it was working once he did. My husband was able to catch the game and we had quite an enjoyable weekend away with our friends. It was perfect for three couples because all three rooms were lovely and connected to their own bathroom. Lovely open spaces and a balcony with an incredible view. We enjoyed the sound of the waves crashing ad we braai'd and relaxed outside. The beach is literally like your backyard which was also lovely. We enjoyed riding on paddle boats on the lagoon. Also the Waffle house and other lovely restaurants, shops and pubs right there. It was so much fun! Thank you for the very comfortable and wonderful time in your lovely apartment! Will be returning soon!

  • I never spoke to Leigh-Anne, thought I was texting with her, but when I finally spoke to someone when I was waiting around to checkout (I was late to leave because the person picking up the keys was 20 minutes late), it was a man named Sean. The apartment was in a good location, but everything seemed a little bit dirty, in my opinion, and the price seemed a bit high, once I was there, compared to other places I looked at.

The furniture and amenities are very nice and Ahmed and his family are very friendly and helpful hosts. The apartment is in walking distance (2-5) from great swimming beaches, a place you are able to rent bicycles from, a fun water park and very nice restaurants. Cycling and walking along O. R. Tambo Parade is fantastic. There is a grocery store about a 10 min walk from the apartment. This apartment definitely gives you the opportunity to stay out of the car and enjoy the weather. We would also recommend the airport shuttle Ahmed suggested, which was very well-priced and effective.

  • Host is amazing & excellent to accommodate Airbnb guests. All of the appliances are new & very functional for our extended 3 week stay. Oven was spotless. Dishwasher was so convenient. Unit has a toaster, tea pot & carrot peeler (super handy after grocery shopping). Aircon works well on hot days & shower has super hot water. Spar grocery & Tops within walking or driving not too far. Best Breakfast on the beach promenade is Circus Circus within walking distance. Best night cap on the beach is Moyo on the pier. Don't miss Ushaka, an entire outdoor mall with shopping & restaurants. 24 hour desk attendants were friendly. Wi-Fi was free the first day. Secure parking was really helpful. So close to the beach (out the front door) we watched multiple magnificent sun rises @ 5:30am. Great coffee @ the 1st building on the beach or the mobile truck in the surfer's parking lot in front of the building. Not an ideal location for nightlife since most of the beach closes @ 6pm & the building is quiet in the nighttime. Perfect spot if you love the beach & the waves-don't miss it.

    A lovely thatched two bedroom cottage in a tranquil one and a half acre garden in Salt Rock. Beautifully furnished with a modern fully equipped kitchen. SMEG oven, washer/tumble dryer, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Walk out the sitting room onto a lovely patio which is situated on the steps of a large pool. A very safe area and only 2kms to the beach. Very close to Sage, Delish Sisters and Tiffany's Shopping Centre. Within easy reach of wonderful off-road biking trails. Relaxing environment.
    The 2nd bedroom has bunk beds and not 2 separate beds. There is unfortunately nowhere to list bunk beds. Camp cot for infants.
    Pleasant country feel to the neighbourhood. Lovely artisanal shops next door and good restaurants close by. Country market next door the last weekend of the month.
  • Meeting with hosts Joanna and Peter, you meet with 'off the scale' generosity in every sense of the word. We were pleasantly surprised by the absolute attention to detail pertaining to comfort, ambiance and just practical 'design thinking' applied to make one's stay memorable:- Jamie Oliver cookware, SMEG, Carol Boyce, Egyptian white cottons, Casa Domani Firenze, and the list goes on.. We also enjoyed their generosity of spirit, constantly checking in on how we were doing, gifts to my 5-year old, helpful tips and travel ideas etc etc.. The immaculate cottage, pool and beautiful garden provided us with great value, compared to studios and flats with similar or even higher price tags. Personally, a more quiet and serene setting like this feels way more of a holiday than the hustle and bustle of the CBD and beach front. Salt Lake I have now discovered is really charming, the deli's and organic produce shops less touristy, and generally more geared for quality than quantity. I will certainly be back for plenty more. PS. Highly recommended.

I gave 5 Star ratings for everything , as it is exactly that - amazing value for money, as described on the pictures, super clean etc. The Cottage has high quality finishes, from granite kitchen tops, with a fully equipped kitchen with highness appliances, a huge flat screen TV, aircon,etc. Joanna very generously supplied coffee, teas, fresh mild, toiletries etc. The garden is like a manicured Park, with Pool and a private sitting area for the cottage. the location was ideal for us, 3 min to the shops, good connection to National road and a 5 min drive to the beach. Joanna is a SUPER Host! would definitely stay here again and tell our friends!

    Andries2016-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Mel and Grant made me feel so welcome and went out of their way to make me feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The suburb is lovely and really central to everything and close to the beach. The cottage is clean, has wifi, full DSTV, the best was the Lindt chocolates left on the bed! I'll definitely stay there again.

    Nicki2016-08-09T00:00:00Z

  • This house was beautiful. There was plenty of space for all of us. We requested a cot and this was ready and set up to go when we got there. There were one or two issues however these were addressed quickly and with sincere apologies which is all we could ask for. Overall I'd recommend this place - it has everything you need to make your holiday relaxed and memorable.

    Craig2016-08-01T00:00:00Z

  • Very spacious home with beautiful, open-plan living areas. Gorgeous views from the living area and deck, and from most bedrooms. Comfortable beds and good linens. Excellent, prompt communication from Andre and Candice. House is located in a safe, lush and quiet gated complex. Easy access in and out of the complex with visitor cards. The house is a 1 minute walk from the Fairmont Resort, where we had free access to their beautiful pool and a cafe serving food and drinks. Overall a very good stay!

  • We had a great time at Deans house. The location was absolutely fantastic. It was amazing sitting at the deck and looking to the beach and the ocean. The apartment ist well equipped and Dean is a very friendly host. He has good information what to do in Umdlothi and the area around. I recommend this location absolutely.

    Uwe 2015-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely accommodation. Charmingly decorated with great views of the ocean from the deck. Dean is a very welcoming hosts who left us a welcome pack and gave us a great overview of the surrounds. Our party consisted of myself, my wife and our 2 year old daughter. The accommodation is very child-friendly and buckets and spades were kindly provided. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

    My place is close to great views, restaurants and dining, the beach, and family-friendly activities. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).
    The accommodation is a flat attached to a main house. It is fully equipped for self catering. It has two bedrooms. There is no airconditioning but the rooms have fans. Full DSTV is available. Bathrooms have no bath but showers, basin and toilet. Bedroom 1 has an en-suite bathroom (bathroom 1).
    Umtentweni is quite a large town but unknown to the traveller as it is surrounded by trees and is not very visible from the main roads. It is situated on the southern south coast of Kwa Zulu Natal. It is like a town built in a forest. Bordering Umtentweni is the Port Shepstone Country Club offering golf, squash, bowls, tennis and restaurant with live entertainment over weekends. It is situated on the southern south coast of Kwa Zulu Natal. Towns close to it is Port Shepstone, Shelly Beach (has two shopping malls). and further south is the popular Margate.

  • Had a fantastic stay in Pumula with Lucie and Scott. The location was fantastic and felt like we were in the heart of the jungle and only 3 km from the beach. Their service and friendliness was exceptional and yoga classes from Lucie were great

    Matt2014-12-22T00:00:00Z

  • We absolutly had a fantastic time! The house was exactly how it is described. We were welcomed by Mary the housekeeper on arrival. She was fantastic and very helpful! The view from the balcony was just amazing! The highlights for the little ones was having little monkeys visiting every morning for breakfast! :) Thank you Nico for making our holiday a memorable one! Will definitly come back if you visit Durban again.

    NICO2016-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house was simply stunning, both in terms of location and the house itself. Being able to see the ocean to the horizon every day was special. Nico was also very accommodating as we had a couple of special requests- we were hiring the place to stay during my wedding. He was always friendly, responsive and courteous when we talked. He doesn't live at the property but that doesn't impede any of the organizing. There was a couple of the issues with the gate, and managing the relationship with the housekeeper was quite tricky.

  • Centrally located, close to shops, restaurants and pubs, in proximity to the main traffic arteries and with off-street parking, it is a great base for business across town, allowing me to comfortably do 400 km in 3 days. Also entertained casually in the lounge before taking my guests to dinner around the corner. The host, Didi, has an easy going personality with refined senses and a flair for the artistic, but one can also tell that she is highly organised and meticulous, with a great sense for the small details that will make your stay extra welcoming.

    A spacious and secure flat with the incredible views over Durban's beachfront. It's peaceful and relaxed beach living here with an older kitchen and bathroom's and a bohemian styled living space.
    The apartment is secure, relaxed and spacious with incredible views from two of the three bedrooms and the communal living spaces overlooking the entire Durban coastline.
    The neighborhood is a vibrant mix of the Durban community that visits the beachfront promenade. There are several restaurants in walking distance, as well as a supermarket. A further walk along the beachfront promenade can take you to Suncoast Casino and Entertainment, or down to uShaka Marine World if you venture South. The surrounding area is safe although you may be met by some of the local street beggars.
  • Matthew and his apartment in the sky were wonderfully great for my time in Durban. It's right across the street from the beach, so I loved the super quick access to the ocean water. The apartment is big and has pretty much separated quarters which was great for having space to myself to work, think and write. Matthew is a quiet host but also ever helpful anytime I had a question. I recommend this place. One day I will stay again. Enjoy.

    Ben2017-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a peaceful and spacious stay! We three had a rejuvenating time getting lost in ocean views and sounds from within the apartment. We appreciated the bldg's location and its walking distance to most everything, including the beach, grocery stores, and restaurants. Building security were friendly and helpful, and allowed us to hold keys while we were out (one less thing to worry about). We found the overall stay to be relaxing which was made more so by Dene's responsiveness and willingness to work with our check in/check out times. When faced with inevitable ebbs and flow of travel fatigue, those personable touches make such a big difference! Tips - the big window views are gorgeous as they are bright in the early morning. We wore eye masks to sleep. The kitchen was well-stocked with cutlery, spices, and dishes/cups. Also, we happened to arrive when the weather was just a little rainy and thought about watching a movie indoors. We didn't find a tv or monitor screen avail - no bigs. We found the apt less 'luxurious' and more comfortable and clean with a much appreciated calming vibe. Thumbs up!

    Anne2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I stayed at Matthew's and really liked his apartment. It is very clean, the view is incredible, parking is safe and plenty, and the room was comfortable and breezy. Matthew himself is a really kind host and had great tips for us for our drive to the Drakensberg mountains. Definitely recommend! (Although do mind that there are many beggars around that area.)

    Jessica2017-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We have frequented many Airbnb sites across the globe. This apartment must surely rate as one of the cleanest ever. Matthew and Dene present as a people of excellence who are authentic and walk in integrity. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and the view is worth the price alone. Well worth it.

  • Three of us stayed in Toad Tree Cottage for 5 weeks in March and April. Bruce is an absolutely fantastic host, we wanted for nothing. Bruce also has a great team working with him to make sure the house and pool were clean and ensured we had a trouble-free stay. The house was lovely, it has original old features, clean and comfortable bedrooms, nice big bathrooms and everything we needed to cook. The pool is an added bonus too! We felt very safe here and the views of the sugarcane fields is something I miss waking up to. I would go back in a heartbeat, I cannot recommend Toad Tree Cottage enough!

  • The Toad Tree Cottage is a fantastic place. We were supposed to stay 2 nights and we finally spent 4 nights. The house is huge, well equiped, and beautifull. The pictures are totally conform to the reality. The colonial charm of the house is amazing. We visited South Africa during 4 weeks and our stay at the Cottage was our best experience. Thanks Bruce !

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our tranquil stay in this charming, characterful Natal-colonial cottage set in the midst of a small indigenous forest with amazing birdlife and friendly dogs to welcome us. The cottage is very well equipped, comfortable and homely and the decor is a quirky, nostalgic nod to the colonial influence of the past. The cottage is situated on a sugar cane farm, but just ten minutes away from the centre of Mtunzini.
