I last visited Sue and Dave Carlton at B&B by the sea two years ago. Nothing has changed. In fact it's better than ever. Wonderful views of the Indian Ocean, and still lots of Dolphins swimming by. Sue is so hospitable and what Dave doesn't know about the area isn't worth knowing. I highly recommend this place , I shall...

The view from the veranda is really exceptional. It feels as if you are right on the sea, Sue is a very friendly and helpful hostess and the two ladies who help are also very pleasant, The rooms and bathroom are clean and comfortable, The second toilet is a bonus. The breakfasts were exceptional: a large bowl containing a wide...

Sue and her husband was such a lovely and friendly couple. We were 4 Girls and had Three dogs with us, and that was not a problem at all. The view is FANTASTIC and the breakfast on the balcony is very delicious - you got to have it if you stay there. Sue was warm and welcoming at such a...

Very comfortable, lovely view. Friendly and accommodating hosts. For the animal lover there are dogs, cat, hens. Monkeys and mongoose visit the garden. Lots of birds. Can hear the sea beautifully at night. A place to revist

If you want a beautiful view, a filling breakfast on the balcony overlooking the Indian Ocean, a friendlly hostess who tries her best to make you feel at home, Bed & Breakfast by the Sea is a good place for you. It's quiet (though there are monkeys that will sometimes come to your balcony!), and the view is breathtaking and...

My girlfriend and me worked in Stanger Hospital for three months. It wasn't easy to find accommodation but with this B&B, we definitely made the right choice. We stayed in the self catering garden cottage. It's not too big but it was really all we needed. The neighbourhood is very beautiful and safe. Sue, the host, and her husband as...

Bedroom was comfy. Clean. Full range of channels on the TV. WiFi was a welcome extra that I hadn't expected. The view is spectacular and the sound of the waves breaking is a wonderful noise to fall asleep to. The breakfast was generous and served on the verandah overlooking the sea was a very pleasant experience. The animals were a...

Perfect B&B. Location is just right (15-20 mins to Durban airport) and a view to die for. Watching the sea and the dolphins over breakfast. Lovely room and luxurious furnishing. Sue went out of the way to accomodate both my vegan diet and my desire for a late check out. She could not have been more hospitable. I recommend this...

I had read about the great view on TRIPADVISOR, but experiencing it first - hand was just the most remarkable thing. Because of the setting, the room felt so spacious and we never once had the feeling of being cooped up in a tiny boxy space - a common occurrence as we live on a large piece of land in...

We stayed at Sue's self catering apartment for 3 nights after two and a half weeks of safaris around the Zululand/Maputaland region. The apartment is well appointed, and was perfect for our needs. Sue made us very welcome, and we had a restful couple of days before our journey back to the UK watching dolphins swim by from our fantastic...
