Umhlanga Rocks is 4 kilometers away, with Durban City Centre, Moses Mabidha, Kingspark Swimming Pool, Athletic Stadium, The Sharks Tank (Home of Sharks Rugby), various golf courses and U’Shaka between 8 to12 minutes’ drive from us.

We are situated on the Public Transport Route. We also offer to call Uber or a metered Taxi Service on your request. The guest house offers a luxury bed and breakfast experience with complimentary amenities, glass of Jeripico, Coffee / Tea station and something sweet to nibble.

A delicious range of fresh foods are on offer for breakfast. A Continental Buffet Breakfast and a hot English breakfast are served Monday to Saturday. On Sunday's we only offer a Continental Buffet Breakfast.

The elegant fully air-conditioned en-suite guest rooms and self-catering unit are individually decorated. They come with Commercial DSTV channels, flat screen TV, microwave oven, bar fridge, hair dryer, safe and limited cutlery and crockery. The self-catering unit is however fitted with a fully equipped kitchen.

The lapa offers a cozy atmosphere where you can braai (barbeque) and relax. The pool is conveniently next to the lapa area to escape from the heat you can dive in to cool down. We also offer free secure parking to our guests.

  • A lot of attention for detail

    Very friendly owners, especially the children felt at home right away. They loved the animals and 'oma'. The rooms were comfortable and we could see that a lot of attention was spent on the details. Great breakfasts!

  • It was great!!

    Very comfortable and hospitable. Would recommend Akanan House to everyone I know.
