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.

this place is a little piece of heaven on earth. With the beach in the backyard, it does not get better than this. Worth all 5 stars!!
