As a well-traveled host, having used airbnb as a guest for several years, my apartment is tastefully furnished so as to meet the needs of the international traveller. The well-ventilated lounge (with a balcony), fully furnished open-plan kitchen, bathroom (with bath-tub AND shower) and two well-positioned bedrooms offer travellers the experience of home away from home. Included in the package are morning beverages and breakfast essentials to kick-start your day in our beautiful city.

The space

The uniqueness of the apartment is the privacy offered to you, in this quiet and private space, yet really close to all amenities and several attractions. In particular, the world famous Durban Botanic Gardens is a 5-minute walk and ideal for picnics, meditation, yoga and scrumptious meals at their special restaurant serviced by senior citizens. Also close to the universities and popular international convention center as well as the glorious beaches of Durban.

Guest access

The entire apartment is available for your exclusive use. Access to the complex and guidance to the unit itself will be through my mum or myself who will meet and receive you, and if not around, the security guard of the complex will gladly direct you.

Interaction with guests

Whilst my mum and/or I am usually available to meet you and to orientate you to the place, arrangements will always be made to ensure a smooth check-in and check-out independent of whether we are available or not. As a world traveller myself, I understand the importance of this and will be in prompt and regular contact with you to ensure that everything goes well for you. I am always happy to meet people to learn more about them and to exchange experiences, usually through a beach walk/run or a hike at one of the many nature reserves and trails in the area, compliments of me.

Other things to note

Whilst the unit accommodates four adults, the couches are large enough for a child to use, if need be.

I was visiting Durban primarily for the international rugby test so proximity to the stadium was important. The listing was accurate and Julian was a great host. Made us feel welcome and suggested other places and restaurants we could visit while in Durban which was a nice touch. The check-in process was smooth and Julian personally made us feel very welcome. The location was easily accessible with a nice parking with places of interest nearby - you can easily use Uber at a reasonable fee to access areas of interest. Overall a great experience.

Julian was very friendly, on time and helpful with tips about the neighbourhood. The flat is decently located, a short drive away from some nice restaurants and bars. The flat was ok, with all the amenities, but cleanliness could be better if you're sensitive to these things.

Julian is a wonderful host with excellent warmth and a generous personality. He has made great strides in turning an old and undistinguished apartment into a comfortable and convenient home for travelers.

Julian User Profile

I am a mature and easy-going professional that respects other peoples space and expects similar. I am very friendly, and particularly enjoy sharing experiences and opportunities with the potential of developing lasting friendships. I am very open-minded and try best not to be judgemental, in realising that we all are different and uniquely contribute to our colourful world. One of the main reasons that I choose to opt for private accommodation, apart from it being considerably more affordable than most hotels of a good standard, is that it gives me the opportunity to meet local people, find out about the places to go to (and to avoid), and general tips on just about anything my host is willing to share. Consequently, I endeavour to provide the same to my guests.
