This four-star self-catering property is an ideal location for up to eight guests sharing four bedrooms. With a private pool, patio and kitchen there is plenty of space. The unique use of wood and structures give the property a modern and contemporary feel. You’ll adore the lounge which features three large windows each with fantastic views. The spacious kitchen is well equipped and includes a microwave and full oven. The horseshoe shape design makes it easy to prepare meals and we adore the archway leading from the kitchen to the rest of the property. Meals can be enjoyed in any of the seating areas but we think that the best spot is on the outdoor patio.

This stylish two-roomed cottage enjoys sweeping sea views and offers peace and tranquility. Although there is space for three people we think that this property is actually ideal for a romantic getaway. Meals can be cooked in the kitchen which has both a hob and conventional microwave. If it is sunny, be sure to cook outside with the use of the shared barbecue. You’ll be happy with the view. For this partly remote property, you will need your own car in order to freely enjoy the environment.

Host:amazing host will definitely come againRead more reviewsbeautiful home very lovely and a cozy atmosphere and at a calm and peaceful location
This two-bedroom cottage can sleep up to six people comfortably. Each one is nestled into a quiet cul de sac that enjoys harbor views. The center of Durban is just 15 minutes away by car, or the local bus stops near to the cottage for guests traveling without a car. The property features tiled walls and floors but still feels cozy and welcoming. The kitchen is smaller than expected for this property but it is well equipped with both a microwave and a kitchen. There is also a small dining area in the kitchen where meals can be enjoyed.
SELF CATERING COTTAGES
With four guests sharing two bedrooms this is a great location for a family. Within 5 km (3 miles) from the beach, it is also in close proximity to the city center. Located in a residential area, it is very quiet and peaceful. The property itself is a double-story, self-contained unit which is not directly connected to the main house. The kitchen is compact and very modern. We love the mix between the use of solid granite and wood. There are a fitted four-plate stove and oven, a large fridge and all the equipment that you could need to make a fantastic meal. It is worth noting that there is a two-night minimum stay.
