A relaxing stay close to the office with Friendly staff.

Many options for Takeout that are delivered to the B&B.

Breakfast was good, was nice to sit outside and eat.

Wifi is available but not for streaming, would be nice if streaming was available without additional costs.

My room was always kept neat and clean. The location is in a nice surbabia quiet area and the breakfast was always amazing. There is a great big clean pool if you need to cool down. Close to a pub and other restaurants.

I had a great stay at Avilla House. The property is beautiful and quiet; the staff members are welcoming, accommodating and warm. I recommend Avilla House if staying in the greater Durban area and will stay there the next time I'm in Westville.

Great location, beautiful ,comfortable and clean room, Fantastic hosting by Lizzy.
Great balance of attention and privacy(which unfortunately 90% of guest houses can never master).

Well done. 10 out of 10 for Avilla.
