    "We stayed for a couple of days at Beside Still Waters Guest House at the beginning and after our trip from Durban to Johannesburg to Durban. The venue is privately owned and that is what you feel from the moment you enter the property. All is very well kept, the staff, who is mainly family, are more then friendly and willing to assist and you see and feel the passion in this very nice Guest House. It is ideally situated near the beach and restaurants and supermarket are at walking distance. We felt very safe here and very well protected! We sure will come back here!!"

    "Mary Ann is a dream! Extremely friendly and responsive, she went out of her way to make me feel welcome - even moving me to garden view room with a balcony to enhance my experience. The property is comfortable, cozy and secure, in a lovely walk-able neighborhood. I would recommend it highly! It was perfect for me, as I was meeting family that were staying 10 minutes away. I had all the convenience without the exorbitant price tag."

    Beautifully rounded & well positioned Guest House

    "I absolutely loved my stay at Bedside Still Waters. I stayed there for 13 days with friends and we were treated very well by the entire staff and family. It's location is well positioned in an affluent suburb (La Lucia) which allowed us to move freely within the proximity of shops, highways, and various popular sites. It truly felt like home away from home. Thank you for the fantastic hospitality!!!"

    Beautiful Beside Still Waters

    "Beside Still Waters is one beautiful lodge I would love to stay at anytime. The lodge is clean, homely, in a lovely neighbourhood, and close to a lovely shopping mall with everything you need. Its best assets are the people, particularly the owner Mary-Ann. A must-go when in Durban."
