"I would like to thank Dirk (the owner) who was so helpful. Never hesitated in coming forward by himself to help for anything. Would again like to stay here during my visit to Durban."

"We stayed over for the night on our way elsewhere. The stay was nice. Breakfast was delicious. Owners friendly. We did struggle a little though to find the place and someone to help us when we arrived. But overall it was ok."

"We spent a few days in the city of Durban then went out to the Bluff for a couple days at Garvies and it was a wonderful stay. It is buried back in a lot of suburban roads which is a little tough to find the first time but it's well worth it. Alex was so helpful and kind, helping us to get settled in, giving us information about the city, helping arrange transportation (and offering to drive us around if needed). The rooms are small and the bathroom could use a little work but the location and view is stunning and the rooms were very comfortable and tidy. We had breakfast cooked for us each morning and we ate on the balcony overlooking the ocean... lovely. It is literally a 3 minute walk to the beach which is very secluded and makes for a nice relaxing walk or afternoon in the water. There is nothing to do in the Bluff except relax at the guesthouse and beaches so if you are looking for entertainment, restaurants, etc it is about 20 minutes from downtown Durban by car which isn't bad unless you are spending a great deal of time in the city or going back and forth a lot. It was a very relaxing and comfortable stay and if you are looking for a nice spot outside of town to enjoy some scenery, some beach, or some nice drives up and down the coast. Garvies was fantastic and I would absolutely go back again."

"Had a great time there. It was nice to stay at the place like that. The owner had patience because we arrived late around 23hrs but she was still waiting. I'm impressed. Will definitely go back to that place before end of this year. Keep up the good work."
