About Lobelia Self Catering Cottage

We are nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking the Durban Harbour. This comfortable cottage comprises of two separate bedrooms each fitted with three single beds, bathroom with corner bath and separate shower, and a fully fitted kitchen, DStv, private braai facility, and secure parking.

It offers easy access to a wide selection of recreational and shopping options and is an easy 30 minute drive from King Shaka International Airport and the centre of Durban. We are within walking distance to one of the several shopping centres with a wide variety of stores to choose from. We are also 500m from the closest bus stop to go into Durban Central if you do not have a car.

We are about 3 km from the local beach Ansteys. Shark nets make it safe for bathing, a paddling pool for babies and another for toddlers, while the beach is not far for Dad. Life Guards are on duty all the year round. Ansteys has recently been awarded with the coveted international Blue Flag status. This is truly a great achievement. During July if you are lucky you can witness the sardine run and the dolphins swim by quite regularly.

Slightly further down the road is Brighton Beach where there is a paddling pool for small children, with slides. There is also a tidal pool a man-made pool in the sea, the waves come crashing over which is fun at High tide. Life guards are on duty for surfers and swimmers alike. Dad can bring his fishing rod along and try surf fishing; it might just be his lucky day.

For those avid horse racing fans, Greyville Race Course is not too far where you can have a good meal and enjoy a day or night of exciting racing. There is a minimum of two nights stay & 4 nights in December.

From being met off the Intercape bus at Durban station, to being dropped back there for the trip home, the service was always excellent! The kids were treated like their grandchildren, welcomed and socialised with! They answered all my questions about the area, facilities etc, even offering us use of their washing machine. They were full of interesting information about local wildlife, fruit trees and flowers etc and frequently took us down to the beach in their car as we were without that. I recommend this place 100% to families especially. We would definitely come again!T
