Great, very neat, private.

It would be nice if an aircon could be installed, to beat the Durban heat. I think that the address should be changed as the GPS did not pick 188 Alan Paton road up, but it picked up 188 McDonald road which was the address on the front of the house.

Won't stay there again.

Friendly host, but not a nice place. Not even a courtesy bottle of drinking water. There was a problem and we had no water. I had to find a 5L bottle and fetch water from the swimming pool to flush the toilet during the night. TV had sound but no image.

Was central to all the schools.

Just look carefully at the stairs when it rains. Other than that, very nice.

Was sentraal by al die skole.

Kyk net mooi na die trappe as dit reën. Verder baie lekker.

Cleanliness is a major issue that they must really improve.

Good location, good customer service, but they need to change linen before new guests arrives and towels, bathroom and shower were not good at all.

It was an awful experience.

3 cockroaches seen. No bathroom door and this wasn't advertised. Dirty sheets and behind the toilet. No DStv though it was advertised. Kitchen right by bathroom. Sliding door was sticking. Front sliding door did not lock. Fridge was not cold when we arrived. Electricity went off the one day due to no units being bought. Tiles chipped. One bed leg broken and a brick put there.

The only thing that they must change is the bed's mattress. Thanks.

Service was very good and the place was clean and well-equipped.

I only arrived after the check-in time, but was still welcomed with open arms. The place is very secure and safe and the flatlet had everything I needed.

Teleurstellend.

Die bed se springs steek deur die bokant van die bed. Die lakens is lankal nie meer wit nie. Die wasbak en toilet ruik na riool as jy die krane oopmaak. Die vloere is geverf en dop op verskeie plek af. Dan ook as jy die deur oopmaak nadat dit toegestaan het ruik dit na koue, nat muf. Voorts was die swembad grasgroen. Jy kan sien dit word nie eers skoongemaak of probeer onderhou nie. Dit lyk regtig nie soos op die foto's nie. Ek kan nie glo dat daar sulke goeie resensies is nie. Ek het volgens die kwotasie betaal vir skoonmaakdienste, maar my bed nooit opgemaak, vullismandjie nooit uitgegooi en die handdoeke nooit vervang nie. Ek sal dit glad nie aanbeveel nie.

The service was absolutely incredible, Vanessa is such a kind person.

We stayed over for 2 nights and the place is beautiful, it's really a home away from home. Vanessa is really kind and so accommodating, our transport was running late and she offered to take us to the nearest coffee shop as they were expecting guests and we supposed to have checked out already. We will definitely go there again and recommend it to a friend. Keep up the good service.

Netjiese verblyf, vriendelike mense.

Home from Home is 'n gerieflike, baie goed ingerigte, netjiese, skoon gastehuis, waar Kevin jou vriendelik ontvang en tuis laat voel. Ek beveel hulle graag aan.
