My family has stayed at Heaton Cottage twice (Aug. 2008 & July 2014), for extended stays when we travelled to South Africa to welcome our children into our family. Shayne (& her husband Craig) truly made us feel at home and was invaluable to us during an important time in our lives. Her attention to detail & willingness to step...

Heaton Cottage is 5 star elegant, stylish and affordable accommodation, a “home away from home” in the heart of the leafy, safe and secure Cowies Hill near Durban. Owners Craig and Shayne pull no stops in their execution of customer service to ensure guests are safe and happy. Shayne goes above and beyond to welcome her guests and ensure guests...

Our family of 4 stayed on 3 different occasions and enjoyed the gardens, pool, classy facility and service. Shayne, her family and staff went above and beyond! Home-away-from-home is cliche but true:)

We couldn't have asked for a better experience at Heaton Cottage. Shayne went above and beyond, to make us feel welcome and comfortable in our cottage. The cottage is beautifully decorated and inviting. It also has a bathtub, which was so nice for bathing little ones! Each of our children were made to feel special each morning at breakfast. The...

Being a regular traveller and having stayed at various Bed and Breakfast establishments around the Country - Heaton Cottage rates amongst one of the best that I have stayed in. The elegance and attention to detail just bowled me over. The room was beautifully furnished, spacious and pristinely kept. Being a light sleeper, the tranquil/peaceful surroundings just felt like bliss....

Our room was very well appointed....comfy bed, nice linens, great shower, clean and had everything we needed for an extended stay. The morning breakfast was incredible...ample, delicious, and fresh. But the room and food were only a small part of what Heaton offers. I cannot say enough about Shayne and Craig's hospitality, grace, generosity of spirit and kindness. We stayed...

My family and I stayed at Heaton Cottage for 5 weeks during a very important time in our lives - welcoming our son into our lives.

This place has it all. Yummy proper breakfasts, super comfy beds, clean and charming rooms and lovely hosts. Feels like staying with family! We have stayed three times for two weeks at a time and have never been disappointed. Just perfect, and we felt safe here as well.

Our family stayed at Heaton Cottage for just over three weeks. We had the most incredible time while there. The cottage was very comfortable, the cleaning service was great (very friendly and efficient), and the daily breakfasts were so wonderful to wake up to. All requests were promptly and happily taken care of. We felt very spoiled during our stay....

My family of 4 stayed at Heaton Cottage for a little more than two weeks and we loved every minute of our time there. The accommodations were comfortable and clean, the pool and tennis court gave our children room to play and the location was only minutes away from shopping and other amenities. The breakfasts were fantastic and had something...

“The cottage is better suited for a family as it has a separate dressing room/sleeping area & kitchenette. Well worth the extra expense.”
