            Great stay”

            Food, rooms, access to anemities

            My stay at Cowrie Cove was great. The room was clean, spacious, and looked fantastic. The staff was beyond friendly, and I appreciated the easy access to the beach as well as short drive to the vibrant Umhlanga restaurants. If pets are not your thing then the hotel may not be for you. Otherwise the accommodation is deserving of it's grading.

            Serene, Balinese bliss with a beautiful beach on the other side of a garden gate.”

            Attention to detail is key. Cowrie Cove gets this right on so many levels. From the stunning decor, delicious breakfast, vast selection of teas and home baked treats at tea time, gorgeous Charlotte Rhys toiletries and delux bath mats. Cowrie Cove is a sensory sensation. One can only commend the lovely Caroline and the humble Qubus for ‘getting it so right’. We can’t wait to return. Ruth and David Tulip London UK

            Pleasant and personal stay”

            Superb breakfast, helpful and nice staff, nice and cosy

            Our stay was great! The room was nice and cosy and the staff was really helpful. They drove us to Umhlanga when ever we needed a lift and helped us to arrange adventure tours in Kwazulu-Nathal. The beach next to Cowrie Guest House is beautiful and there is towels and beach mattresses to borrow.

            Great b&b”

            I was in town for a conference and all hotels near the ICC were booked. I chose Cowrie Cove because of the many positive reviews. The reviews proved to be spot on. Staying there was a true pleasure. There's so much to praise; beautiful setting, welcoming staff, luxurious room, etc.

            Outstanding guest house - highly recommend”

            Just stayed at Cowrie Cove for a fantastic 4 nights. Simply the best. Wonderful rooms - huge comfy beds & amazing bathrooms, lovely accommodation and grounds, great breakfast and honesty bar / teas, coffees available all the time, plus lovely grounds and quick access to the Indian Ocean. Caroline and her staff couldn't do more for you. Quite literally - even picked up items at the shops for us! Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you!!
