We enjoyed our visit in the 1000 Hills area in this exceptional house.
Everything works, security is good, very helpfull owner and management.
We felt at home and very privileged, enjoying the stunning views from all rooms, waking up greeting the striped neighbors outside the bedroom windows and exploring the surroundings.
We believe that we have discovered one of our new “special spots” on the globe.
We will come back as soon as possible.
Thank you Nina & Allan !

We just loved our stay in Phezulu House, a stylish home tastefully decorated with true respect for South African tradition and superb views across the Inanda Dam.
The house is in a great location for sightseeing close by and further afield ranging from the Shongweni Market in Hillcrest to a drive along the Midland Meander art route wtih weavers, potters, herb growers, cheese makers etc. If you decide to venture down to the Durban coast make sure to visit uShaka Marine World with the seal and dolphin shows and finish off your day with a fun swim in the natural rock pool known as Granny's pool in Umhlanga.
In diesem Haus zu wohnen ist ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis. Das Haus befindet sich in einem Wildpark. Zebras und Antilopenarten sind nur einige der vielen Tiere, die man überall begegnet, und die teilweise ganz nahe am Haus grasen.
Das Haus ist großzügig ausgestattet - angefangen mit der Doppelgarage, über den großen Wohn- und Essbereich, bis hin zum hohen Reetdach (wunderbarer romantischer Blick vom Bett aus) und den großen Schlafzimmern und Bäder. Auch die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet, eher wie ein Zuhause als eine Ferienunterkunft.
Wir haben die Terasse und den Grill sehr genossen. An der Terasse schließt sich ein kleiner, privater Pool an.
Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, die ganze Abwicklung unkompliziert. Vor Ort gibt es eine Mitarbeiterin, die mit Rat und Tat zur Seite stehen.
Alles in allem eine Unterkunft, die ich auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen würde!
My family of four stayed at the Phezulu House this August.
Let me share our experience in three bullet points:
#1 – Did the Holiday House meet our expectations? – no it exceeded our expectations.
#2 – Would we stay here again? – Yes and are planning to be back again. #3 – Is the view from the estate house really fabulous? Yes, definitely!
Open a bottle of wine and just sit on the porch and watch the sunset along the valley of the thousand hills each night.
The house was really big in size, clean, and very quite. It was brand new with very tasteful furniture and interior design. The fully equipped kitchen allows you to enjoy cooking. There was a great huge patio with a perfect pool to enjoy a glass of wine or two.
You walk just out the door along the private estate to see giraffe, zebras and buffalos.
There also are a great number of fine restaurants that are just next door to the estate.
Wonderful friendly staff. AAA, highly recommended.
Hillcrest is a up market suburb to Durban (30 km drive away), where people seeking a safer, less crowded rural lifestyle. Hillcrest is a small village bordering the valley a Thousand Hills, surrounded by green pastures and farmland. It is a retreat away from the centre of town, a place you could escape to cooler air and guaranteed peace and quiet.

Durban is a mere 20-30 minute drive away, with its vibrant pulse. In Hillcrest you will find the Shongweni Farmers Market which on Saturdays offers a wonderful place to buy organic and fresh ingredients. But in the centre of Hillcrest you will also find shopping malls with a verity of shops, supermarkets and café and restaurants.
