Southey House is conveniently situated in the leafy suburb of Kloof, within walking distance to Thomas More College, and offers comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation in tastefully decorated en-suite bedrooms. The location offers quick access to the M13, ideal for businessman working in Pinetown and Durban, and for parents visiting schools in the upper highway area.
A gourmet breakfast is served daily on the under-cover verandah or in the attractive indoor dining room. The guest house also offers partial views over Durban, and guests are welcome to make use of the swimming pool set in a secluded garden. Guests also have access to a lounge with a microwave and a fridge for convenience.
Kloof, the Afrikaans word for the ravine, lies some 25 kilometers from Durban - a leafy and green village perched 550 meters above sea level with a reputation for a tranquil lifestyle that offers a retreat from the sometimes enervating humidity of the city of Durban.
Kloof is one of the most attractive residential areas in the hills that lie above Durban. It virtually borders on the Krantzkloof Nature Reserve, cut through by a ravine along which the Molweni streams in a series of cascades and waterfalls, encouraging a rich birdlife, an abundance of green foliage and contributing to the mist belt of Kloof. Homes are tasteful and gardens abundant - it’s little wonder that residents have chosen to live here and commute to the city to benefit from the sheer splendor of the area.
In Room Facilities:
Accommodation is offered in 5 en-suite bedrooms, each with luxury linen, tea and coffee making facilities, and TVs. Guests can relax in the tastefully furnished lounge, on the expansive Colonial wrap-around verandah, or in one of the 5 en-suite bedrooms.
Southey House is situated less than 5 minutes from St Mary's DSG, less than 15 minutes from Highbury Preparatory School and less than 20 minutes from Kearsney College. Golf courses in the upper highway area include Kloof Country Club and Cotswold Downs.
