About Durban Accommodation

Durban Accommodation is a rustic and laid-back Tudor-style family home in Durban North that is an affordable place to relax.

We are the ideal place to relax and get back in touch with yourself, and nature. Set in Durban North next to the wildlife conservatory, the large terraced garden leads down to a swimming pool.

                                  We arrived and did not stay, the place is disgusting, run down and run as a whore house. The place looks like a shack in the township. I am appalled that you even have this on your website, I will never again use your site for booking accommodation either. Do you not check the places out before adding them to your site? The venue is in a terrible condition, it is run down, broken windows, not maintained at all. There is a commune of some sort on the property – very unkept. It is a brothel as there were half naked people walking around in their underwear – we presume they were hookers –...
