We sent two of our photographers on a recent business trip and I booked them at Beside Still Waters. We received excellent feedback regarding the friendly, professional and beautiful environment and we have marked it as a Guest House we will most certainly use in future.

Mary Ann is a dream! Extremely friendly and responsive, she went out of her way to make me feel welcome -- even moving me to garden view room with a balcony to enhance my experience.

We loved our stay at this guest house. Within walking distance of a mall with restaurants and the beach was a plus. This place was so clean and homey and comfortably appointed! Friendly family staff. Beautiful garden area.

We stayed at Besides Still Waters for the recent Durban Sky Grand Prix, we had a wonderful stay there seeing that this was our first time. Good and Friendly Staff, beautiful facilities and the location is just perfect close to two shopping malls, both within walking distance. We are definitely coming back next year. Keep it up Guys

I absolutely loved my stay at Bedside Still Waters. I stayed there for 13 days with friends and we were treated very well by the entire staff and family. It's location is well positioned in an afluent suburb (La Lucia) which allowed us to move freely within the proximity of shops, highways, and various popular sites. It truly felt like...

Beside Still Waters is one beautiful lodge I would love to stay at anytime. The lodge is clean, homely, in a lovely neighbourhood, and close to a lovely shopping mall with everything you need. Its best assets are the people, particularly the owner Mary-Ann. A must-go when in Durban.
