The cottage was a perfect place to spend several weeks in Durban. Because the cottage is in the back yard, I had seclusion when I wanted it, but I could also easily interact with my hosts if I desired. I would recommend getting a car as the public transit would be difficult from here, but the city is easily drivable and they have space in their driveway. Sally and Vaughan were excellent hosts. I definitely recommend staying here, especially if you'll be spending a substantial amount of time in Durban.

Vaughan and Sally's cottage is perfect for two. It is ideally located in a peaceful neighbourhood but is not too far from restaurants and the Glenwood nightlife. Getting around using Durban using Uber or Taxify is super easy and if you're driving, there is secure parking. I will definitely be back the next time I am in Durban.

Vaughan and Sally were such awesome host. The accommodation is great, exactly like in pics and completely private. We had an issue with electricity but that was an unfortunate municipality fault. Everything else was impeccable and in perfect order. I used Uber to my guest house which worked out perfectly but Vaughan also transported me to Glenwood bakery for the most delicious breakfast ever as I had no time to go shop for my own purposes due to time and my very short stay. I would definitely recommend Vaughan'a cottage to anyone looking for a comfortable and budget friendly stay. The cottage is in a quiet and beautiful part of Berea and in a lovely picturesque garden. Vaughan, thank you so very much for absolutely everything. Warmest Regards Wendy

This place is a gem, and Vaughan and Sally are wonderful hosts. Couldn't have asked for better. The apartment/unit is beautifully furnished, spacious, characterful, convenient and private, situated in a beautiful garden, in a lovely part of Durban. I can't recommend it enough!

I arrived and there were chocolates waiting to be consumed, clean towels a fresh bed and a great shower. How else would one arrive. Vaughan and Sally were always available evn when they were out. I was comfortable and safe and my daughter felt safe from the first day onward. They even offered me milk on a day when I'd forgotten to get some for the coffee and the porridge. I couldn't ask for better.
