What a wonderful treat - We stayed here over the Easter 2017 weekend. Great location right on the beach. The suites were comfortable and had everything we needed. We looked forward to a scrumptious breakfast every morning. Stunning swimming pool which is kept spotlessly clean. Caroline is a wonderful host. Cowrie Cove has become our favourite KZN holiday place.

Too often you get too much of the same. Travelling a lot, you get bored with the same old, same old. Cowrie Cove is a really luxurious B&B with ample space and luxury. The breakfast is great, the people are great and the location is great.

Very comfortable room and huge wet room. Lovely breakfasts. Really appreciated the tea and coffee machine in the hallway. Umhlanga is an upmarket part of Durban and this guest house is literally 30 secs walk to the sea. The only slight issue was our room was very dark. However, a dark room is helpful to sleep in and who needs...

You have to be pet friendly to stay there because the owner has a lot of dogs & cats, some dogs like to swim in the pool.... The rooms a litle bit to dark but OK, some time ago this was probably modern.

We stayed in room number 1, and it was in a fantastic position. Close to the breakfast area, the pool and close to the private gate that has your own walk way to the beautiful quiet beach. The pool area is stunning, with loungers and even a little area to sit in like a little lounge cover type area. The...

Everyone was really friendly. Breakfast was superb and the accommodation was excellent! The Bathroom, the lounge and the outside area was well maintained. 24hr coffee machine was great because we tend to wake up quite early!

We have returned this week from a wonderful 6 night stay at Cowrie Cove Guest House. Caroline could not do enough to make our stay a memorable one.
