The Write Place Durban

FOUR: For a smaller but still spacious, large and lovely live-work or vacation retreat, check out The Write Place, super-popular with travelers to the city who want a cosy comfy retreat to write or study in or to use as a base to explore the city of Durban.

All four of these great Durban rentals are walking distance to both Musgrave and Davenport centres and to St Augustine hospital. A short drive to Entabeni Hospital. Less than 10 minutes by vehicle to the ICC (Durban International Convention Centre) and 10 minutes by Uber to or Bolt to North Beach.

All these rentals include excellent WiFi, twice-a-week service and I hope everything you will need to walk in, unwind, relax and feel at home. Stay with locals. Be a real Durbanite! You can email me via my website or connect via AirBnB.
