This private cottage is perfect for your affordable business travel and vacation. Here is a spacious home where you can relax on the couch or private patio and enjoy the stunning 180 degree sea views. We share our property with two fun and friendly Dalmatian dogs. This self-catering unit includes an ensuite bathroom and full kitchen. The location is ideal for its quiet and safe. We are a 5min walk from the local beach and only a 20-minute drive to downtown. We have garage secure parking.

The space
This private and charming cottage is perfect for your affordable vacation. It is a one bedroom self-catering house with stunning seaviews from its own patio. The owners live in the next door in the attached house with their two dalmatian dogs.

Set up like a beach cottage, we are located on the Bluff, a suburb in Durban, and steps away from local beach path. This home includes an open plan lounge which includes a queen-size bed, an en-suite bathroom and a separated fully furnished kitchen (with refrigerator and microwave). The cottage leads on to its own private patio and garden with a wonderful 180 degree sea view. Guests are welcome to use the shared swimming pool and shared BBQ area which in Durban can be easily enjoyed right until winter. Note that the place is attached to a main house, but separated by the white picket fence for your own privacy. Furthermore, those who are not comfortable with stairs, there are 15 steps downstairs from the garage/main road which you must take to reach the cottage.

Besides what is listed above, we have off-road parking in a garage for a sedan-sized vehicle. There is access to free wi-fi. There is a convenience store across the road (including laundry facilities), and a mini-grocery store which is less than a two minute drive. The property is also serviced by both municipal and private bus routes.

Guests are welcome to enjoy as much privacy as they would like. We also live next door in our own house and are available should you need assistance during your stay or need further local advice of where to visit and go.

It is only 2 minute drive to the local beach and only 20 minute drive from downtown. Take a break from a busy city life.

The Bluff has its own unique history and is the gem in Durban. It has some of the finest beaches in the area and can feel more like some tropical island spots than urban centres. The place overlooks the Indian Ocean and there is quick access to one of Durban's best kept secrets. There are rockpools for snorkelling with tropical fish, world class surfing and unspoilt beaches for summer walks. This quiet Bluff neighbourhood is peaceful and the spacious area takes away the rush of the busy city life. We are only 15 minutes away from downtown and from the main university campus. This cottage is part of the Bluff's fishing heritage, once home to Norwegian whalers and remains near the old whaling station, now derelict but still a fascinating place to visit. A five minute drive can also take you to the Green Dolphin restaurant or Heidi's Cafe at Anstey's Beach as well as the local shopping mall and gym.

The property is serviced by municipal and private bus routes. There is off-road parking behind its own electric gate, suitable for a small vehicle only. Otherwise parking can be found on the verge outside the property.

We have two dalmatians that are lovable. They stay next to the cottage entrance, and they are happy to keep a nightly vigil for you. They also live on the property and their area is kept clean and tidy.
