Category News

Set on an erf of 4791 m² and situated 20 minutes from Durban and 45 minutes from King Shaka International Airport, it currently has a three-star rating, and the new owners will have ample opportunity to build upon the current owners' success. 

Says Lynette Dorkin of Seeff Hillcrest, Kloof and Waterfall: “Priced at R6.5 million the guesthouse offers the complete package: nine beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms (suites and cottages), with a fridge and microwave in each and their own private entrances. There is also wifi.  The upmarket and thoughtful finishes ensure that each guest feels pampered and well looked after. Guests love to unwind after a long day in the congenial Nags Head pub, around the fireplace in the lounge in winter, or at the pool in the warmer months. The beautiful gardens encourage outside living where one can enjoy the tranquil surrounds in safety at this secured property. Up to 22 guests can be accommodated, and the guest house occasionally hosts intimate weddings.” 

The asking price includes the three-star rating, the website and booking system, as well as all furniture, equipment and contents of the guesthouse needed for operation from the day of transfer. The fully trained and loyal staff complement is willing to continue working for the new owners. 

This guesthouse attracts a wide range of guests, among them businessmen, sportsmen, families and overseas visitors. It is conveniently situated just minutes from the N3 highway and is near several wedding venues and very central to business areas and shopping centres, Cotswold Golf Course and Kloof Country Club. Local attractions include Shongweni Farmers Market, Kranzkloof Nature Reserve, Chefs School & Micro Brewery, Phezulu Croc Park, Giba Gorge, the Valley of a Thousand Hills, racecourses and the Midlands Meander, to name but a few.

With Kearsney College and the Curro School nearby, those attending sports functions and visiting parents are also regular guests, and the guesthouse is also well supported by Comrades Marathon runners and Duzi Canoe Marathon participants.
