Set high upon a ridge along Essenwood Road - a continuation of Berea Avenue - overlooking both the Indian Ocean and the CBD (downtown) Durban, the Essenwood House is a nice quiet oasis amongst the hectic city. The grounds are secure and the pool inviting. Rooms are huge with verandahs that sprawl out even more. Breakfast is either inside or out and is quite filling. An added bonus are the pair of longhaired dachsunds that will sit next to you at breakfast, waiting with sad faces for the next little crumb or piece of bacon.
