We only came down for a quick visit to Durban and enjoyed a wonderful stay. Helga went out of her way to make us feel welcome and when my daughter forgot some things there, she even couriered it back to us in Jo'burg. now that is what I call service with a smile.

Beautiful clean unit, we just felt that the living area is a bit small for 5 adults. Kitchen well equipped and two bedrooms were immaculate. Bathroom also beautiful and very practical and spacious. We enjoyed our short stay. Loved the beautiful ocean view.

Very private chalet with own electric gate and garage. Serviced everyday by friendly staff. Spacious, airy, and beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony. Very secure. We were received by lovely Helga, who made sure all our needs were taken care of. Thank you for the warm welcome.

I recently stayed at Ocean Blue Guesthouse. We were 3 adults and a toddler. The property is very private with its own secure entrance and lock up garage. We hardly saw anyone else during our 7 day stay. I love the fact that the location is a little further away from the busy Ansley's area. The cottage is fully equipped,... More

We had a great time here. The place has a beautiful view and is a very cozy, comfortable, wonderful little place to stay. It's a bit on the small side but that is it's only downside. We think it deserves a higher rating than the 3-stars the South African tourism board gave it.

The facilities where extremely well maintained, and had everything we needed. I would love for it to have a bath for after our run, but the large shower served me well! Was unsure if the pool was available for guests use, or if there was a Path down to the beach. All in all it was a very comfortable stay... More
