Fun in Durban

Filip, Llewellyn, Jörg and Ulrich

Guest Filip (Tenerife) joins guesthouse co-owner Llewellyn and Jörg (Hamburg) and Ulrich (Berlin) for drinks in the guesthouse Pub before dinner out.

In the second photo Filip enjoys a steak at the Cubana Restaurant in Florida Rd, served by Dylan.

In the 3rd photo, the guests were introduced to The Lounge gay bar in Durban for a shirts-off evening and a game of pool. You will notice that both guests spent a little time in the Durban sun without adequate sun protection... so nice to have glorious sunshine, warm sea and beaches and hot guys here!

Nude in Durban

We paid a visit with guests to Durban Nudist Beach at Umhlanga.. was pretty busy with some yummy guys as well as heterosexual couples, all blending into the seascape. Ocean was warm and lovely too. (Wayne (Moscow, Andy UK and Llewellyn, guesthouse co-owner in the top photo)

The weekend started with drinks in the guesthouse pub - Llewellyn, Andy, Ton (Belgium), Wayne and Rene' (Netherlands) - always a good start.

On Sunday we did a pub crawl drinking cocktails at BeanBagBohemia, Cubana (yummy nachos), and supper at Spiga. Awesome stuff!!

Garden Studio

The Garden Studio

Studio en-suite Shower
 The Garden Studio is a large spacious double room, with lounge area (with sleeper couch that can accommodate an additional two guests), a kitchenette with stove and breakfast bar, microwave and fridge, and an en-suite shower.

As the Studio has a patio and small garden, many of our smokers or those wanting to stay a few days prefer this room. It also has a separate entrace or can be accessed via the guesthouse pool area, so is more private and detached from the main guesthouse.

There is no additional charge for the Studio and our standard rates apply, save that a 3rd or 4th guest can also be accommodated at a reduced charge of R320 per person.

New Year blast

Dave, Andrew, Mias, Louis, Charl, Michael and Llewellyn

Ready to welcome in the New Year at the Guesthouse are guests, mainly from Johannesburg, whilst in the second photo Llewellyn and I went onto the roof after a late-night smokey braai under the umbrella and the teaming rain to watch the fireworks and flares light up the New Year sky.
