I have found the place that is becoming a home from home for me in Durban when I visit on business.. Umbrella Tree House offers a luxury room that is a self-catering cottage, my preferred option. Everything is available in the kitchen and the room is comfortable and has everything I need, from good wifi to aircon, and it's conveniently located in Umhlanga. Thank you to TK for making sure that my stay was pleasant, I look forward to the next time..

I spent a night in Umhlanga for some business meetings. Umbrella Tree House was convenient, comfortable and good value, all I look for in a venue. This despite the challenges being faced by the area at this time. I will use it again.

The rooms were well appointed and clean. The ones on the upper level have a pleasant view of the ocean. We enjoyed meeting our host, TK, who was friendly and helpful. The B&B is located in a lovely, quiet suburban area, close to the beach as well as shops.

I stayed in the large suite room for four nights at Umbrella Tree House, which was well appointed, spacious and very comfortable. The doors leading out to a balcony with access to the garden and the swimming pool was a feature I liked and it was peaceful. It felt like a home from home, somewhere where I would certainly stay again.
