Stephanie was incredibly fast to respond to messages, which was great as we booked with very little notice. The apartment was lovely - comfy bed, good wifi, fridge etc - and having a secure car park was excellent. Very safe neighbourhood, with some good restaurants just around the corner. A short drive to more food options on Florida Rd. Stephanie was never far away, but gave us total privacy. And the snacks in the fridge were much appreciated!

What a wonderful space, place, suburb and city. Made even better by a super host. What a wonderful lady Stephanie is, very accommodating but yet unintrusive. After having a long drive to find that the lady of the house had done a little shop for us and provided us with some of the best produce that South Africa is world renowned for. We plan on coming back to Durban and can't wait to stay at Stephanie's again. The best experience of our holiday, thank you Stephanie.

Response from Stephanie:
Greg and Donna have been exceptional guests, showing such enthusiasm and interest in our city of Durban. They have not asked me for anything, have been very caring and considerate. I have enjoyed the conversations we have had together and look forward to many more. Airbnb hosts would be very lucky and happy to have Greg and Donna stay with them. I am not sure (again) if my review has reached them - I am finding reviews are not getting through, and apologise if this is the case. Lots of love to Greg and Donna - and a big thank you for the flowers and chocolates, they are much appreciated. Stephanie

We came back the second time to Stephanie's stunning and unique Gardenhouse. It felt like coming home again. Stephanie's place is absolutely wunderful, a quiet island within this pulsating city. Once you close the save parking door, you're in Stephanie's world. The reduced design with a lot of small, perfectly arranged details and furniture, make this place so special. And of course Stephanie, who is a very lovely host, always taking care of her guests without being pushy at all. She shares her thoughts, experiences and well sorted recommendations and the adress is in a beatiful central area with great restaurants, bakery's and shops nearby. I'll definitely come back again!

Stephanie's place is a lot better then showed in the pictures! In this little and very well designed and very well decorated house (by Stephanie, she is a great interior designer) we have everything we need, even more! It's bright and very clean. The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen is full equipped, we can cook what we want... And the bathroom... I never saw a such beautiful bathroom, with a enormous shower!!!! The garden is huge and amazing, it's really beautiful. We can have meals in a table in the middle of old threes, it's so peaceful and pleasant. The location is very good, there are two very good supermarkets, there are some restaurants just around the corner, and for who loves pastries, there is a great french pastry shop very very close, where we can have an excellent coffee and a delicious peace of pie. The house is close to Florida road, a great place to find lots of good restaurants and also a very good supermarket. We don't have enough words to describe how beautiful it was the five days we stayed on Stephanie's place. Since 2011 we go to Durban to run Comrades Marathon and we rented this wonderful house the last 4 years. We were very lucky, because every time is very special. Stephanie is a wonderful person, she make us feel special. She is always there for you, ready to help... She opened her house for us, but also her heart. Comrades is a wonderful experience and Stephanie is part of this experience. My husband Gil and I highly recommend this place. For sure your stay will be very special!
