About Mackaya Bella Guest House

Mackaya Bella is an established 4 star modern, eco-friendly bed and breakfast, situated in the newly revitalised suburb of Durban South, close to numerous restaurants, galleries, cafés and boutiques. Set in a peaceful indigenous garden, the guest house allows visitors a calm and quiet space in which to unwind and relax.

The name Makaya Bella is derived from an indigenous shrub known to KwaZulu Natal, which thrives in the cool, shady ecosystem of the coastal forests. This indigenous theme of relaxation and tranquility flows not only through the guest house setting, but also encourages the vision and drive of the establishment.


The guest house has six modern en-suite bedrooms, with an additional spacious, one bedroom family room, that can be utilised for long term leasing or for families with small children. The room has a king sized bed, double fold out sofa, plus a kitchen. All rooms are serviced daily.
