This gracious old Victorian home, built in the 1920’s with its special architectural design offers you great comfort and old gleaming Oregon pine floors creating a pleasant atmosphere.

The smell of the freshly brewed coffee will invite you to relax on the patio or in the garden overlooking Durban’s Harbour.

All rooms are en-suite, air-conditioned, equipped with television and have tea and coffee facilities. We are close to the university, shopping centres and restaurants. We are approximately 5 kms from the CBD and about 15 minutes from the airport.

What a delight to stay in the Sparkling Star with friends. The welcoming and service was pleasant and sincere and we enjoyed all of our time there. The breakfasts were fresh, varied and accessible, and were just what we needed. Thank you Thea and Basil, it was a joy to spend our weekend with you.
