Property Description

Durban Accommodation is a rustic and laid-back Tudor-style family home in Durban North that is an affordable place to relax. This lodge offers bed only, bed and breakfast, self-catering, contractors and backpackers' accommodation.Our establishment was built in the 1920's in the suburbs of Durban North. Our lodge has a laid-back atmosphere and carries a variety of different rooms, with a mix of old-fashioned and modern.We have a large hall which can be used for functions such as conferences, weddings, or indoor meals.We also have a wooden deck overlooking the garden which can fit 12 people comfortably where our guests can relax, have meals, or hold small meetings.Situated on the corner of Longwoods Drive and Umhlanga Rocks Drive, centrally located 10 minutes from Gateway, Umhlanga Rocks village, and North Beach. We are 15 to 20 minutes from King Shaka International Airport, Moses Madiba Stadium, Sun Coast Entertainment, and uShaka Marine World.

Green Sustainability

Water Management :Durban Accommodation recovers most of our waste water in a sustainable manner, with the collected water used for irrigation in our garden. Airconditioning : Air conditioning and heating tends to use vast amounts of energy in an average home. Is this the key to helping save the environment? Air conditioning can substantially increase your electricity bill - Ultimately we would have to pass these costs on to you, our customer! ( These costs don't begin to reflect the real costs of damage to our health and the environment) Our initiative is to use energy efficiently.. Therefore we offer ceiling fans and free standing fans instead of air conditioning in the guest house. Solar Geysers : In the average home almost half of electricity consumption is attributed to heating water with your geyser. We have installed solar geyser heating systems throughout our establishment and we're utilizing free energy from the sun! However, we do have an electrical back-up system should the solar heating system be inadequate on rainy days. A family of four with a solar water heating system can save up to four tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions compared to a conventional electric water heater. That’s the same as taking a small car off the road, so you can imagine the benefits for our future generations and the future of the planet!
