10/10 Exceptional

We had an amazing stay at Cowrie Cove Guest house for 10 nights. The bedrooms were fabulous, very clean with the most comfortable beds I have ever found on holiday. Also the breakfasts were excellent and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The beautiful Indian Ocean is within 2 minutes walking distance and our car was safe with on site parking. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Cowrie Cove Guest House
Lovely B & B, centrally located, near all amenities, shops, restaurants. Just off the highway and easy to get to work and back. Within a few metres of the beach and views of Durban and Umhlanga skyline. Staff and owner were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Breakfasts were delicious, with continental variety.
