We had an amazing time at Lilys cottage, we were welcomed with such Friendliness and we were spoilt. Our kids enjoyed the cottage it felt like home, the belcony overlooking the sparkling pool is so Beautiful. Lilys cottage is situated close to many shops and 20min away from the beach, the cottage is surrounded by trees, the peacefulness and sounds of birds was so relaxing. We enjoyed our Easter Holiday so much and will defiantly be returning to Lilys cottage for future Durban Holidays. Thank u to Arthur and Lizette for all your hospitality, your caring and for all the spoils. Xxx

Lily's Cottage will definitely be our first choice accommodation in Durban. The extremely well maintained, clean and spacious cottage is situated in a peaceful and tranquil neighbourhood. Our hosts Lizelle and Arthur are simply fantastic people! They seriously went the extra mile (and beyond) for myself and my family during our stay with them. To find good people like these in this day and age is virtually unheard of. 10/10 for Lily's Cottage!

I stayed at Lily's cottage with my mom whilst my father was undergoing surgery in a nearby hospital. The location to the hospital and everything else we needed was perfect, very accessible and convenient. The owners, were supportive during a stressful time, so helpful and considerate. They are the friendliest, kindest people I have met. The cottage itself was so well maintained and so comfortable that mom and I tried to convince dad to stay in hospital longer just so that we could have a few more days in the cottage, it was such a nice home away from home for 4 weeks. I will always have very fond memories of my time there and cannot wait to book my next stay at Lily's cottage. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Durban.

When we arrived on Christmas Day, our host Arthur welcomed us with open arms and showed us the cottage and made sure that we can come with any requests that we may have. We were welcomed with a variety of cookies, Papaya (grown on the tress in the garden), other fruits and were provided with information on activities to due in the surrounding areas (especially provided tennis and eatery options which we asked and were given without a hesitation). Arthur and his family made us feel welcome and gave us the true sense of South African hospitality. The listing on the website was accurate. The area were we stayed was centrally located about 20km from major tourist attractions which is ok if you are willing to drive about 20-30 minutes to the beach.
