La Rochelle Inn in Richards Bay is honestly the most stunningly gorgeous accomodation we've been to in a long time! Hubby and myself decided to take a holiday to spoil ourselves and the kids. (5 kids - 14 years; 9 years; 5 years; 4 years and our baby of 11 months). We stayed in a furnished, clean, spacious self catering cottage. Both rooms had ceiling fans, aircons (awesome!), tv's, cupboards and patio doors which opened up onto the terrace at the beautifully sparkling swimming pool. My early morning coffee on the terrace with the birds twittering in the trees was the perfect cherry on top! Oh and lets not forget the friendly cleaning ladies that made their appearance every morning to clean the cottage from top to bottom. Awesome! We will most definitely make this a permanent part of our holiday destination planning. Thank you Rieth for creating your gorgeous tranquil garden and making your Inn one of the most stunning places to stay in Richards Bay. If we could, then we'd surely give you another 2 stars to add to your 3. This was definitely a 5-STAR experience!
