Verified reviewexcellent

This guest house is definitely 5 star in everything it does and I thoroughly recommend it to any traveller visiting the Umhlanga Coastline. Beautifully furnished and excellent service. A piece of Bali in South Africa and just a few steps to the beach. I only wish we could have stayed longer.
