from the moment we were welcomed into this lovely B&B we were relaxed and comfortable. The close proximity and safety of the local shops/restaurants enabled us to walk out in the evening without too much worry. Janelle and staff were most helpful with any requests and the stay there was superb. We were made to feel like one of the... More

We stayed at the Villa Calla for a few nights on the Umhlanga leg of a South African honeymoon, on the recommendation of friends and family who had stayed there many times over many years.

The breakfast is extensive and varied, the rooms look out onto the pool where we spent a couple of restful days before returning to Johannesburg for our flight home.

Having travelled quite a lot (leisure as well as business) ranging from basic to five star accommodations the welcome in Villa Calla was the worst we ever experienced. We stayed only for one night. When we arrived we were welcomed by (apparently) the manager of Villa Calla. We were fully overpowered by his extreme rudeness and impatience. Before we had... More

“Try to avoid the room over the garage”
 of 5 bubbles Yvonne138, 19 Jan 2016 | Read review
“I stayed in two different rooms, number 7 was my favourite, separated from the main house (together with room 6) it has its own stairs and I didn't hear any noise from other guests or staff. As mentioned in another review, rooms in the main house may be affected by people's noise - I did woke up by people arriving or leaving at around 4 am while staying in a room in the main house). Being on the first floor number 7 has a balcony with seaview, while other rooms have a patio to the garden/pool area, which is also pleasant but you may have 'neighbours' that smoke or are noisy while using their patio - although the patios have a divide your privacy is not complete.”
