We stayed at the Manaar House for only 2 nights and would loved to have stayed longer. The setting was beautiful, calm and extremely comfortable. Our hosts, Tina and Wayne were both very thoughtful and helpful in helping us plan our local itinerary.

We stayed at Manaar House 3 days and we had a wonderful time. The breakfast was delicious, and the decoration of the house gave us the feeling being at home. Tina and Wyne were very helpful in providing us with any information we needed. Many Thanks for that. We will definitely recommend Manaar House to our friends and other visitors.

The warm greeting from Tina and Wayne was the beginning of a wonderful few days in Umhlanga. We stayed in the suite which had a lovely sitting area with spectacular orchids. The location of the B&B (away from the beach) was close enough for a quick drive yet away from the busy tourist area and wind. The highlight was the... More

We arrived quite late from a long-haul flight from London and couldnt have been made more welcome. Our bedroom was very comfortable and the breakfast very good. We were given advice on where to visit on our way to the mountains. A lovely stay.

We spent a night at Manaar House, we received a very warm and friendly welcome from Wayne and Tina. Manaar House has a fantastic tranquillity about it and set in a quiet neighbourhood, with a beautifully lush garden and pool. The rooms are immaculately clean, and the service and breakfast were fantastic. Thank-you for the peaceful stay.

It is a very lovely b&b, like staying at someone's villa but totally private. Jack and Mark are wonderful hosts. They gave excellent suggestions for dinner and and after drink, and mark even gave us a drive around the little village before dropping us off at our choice of dinner place.
