Glenwood-Berea rentals Durban

Check out these super-convenient Durban accommodation options in Glenwood-Berea. Short-term and long-term options. The top-floor condo is a full self-contained apartment. All are listed on AirBnB with pictures (click on the links below for full details and pictures).

1: See Artsy Afrique top-floor conveniently located condo on AirBnB. Mention you saw the listing on this website or connect via this website. This 1.5 bed top-floor condo is fully furnished and conveniently located for University of KwaZulu-Natal, Howard College; for ARHI (and the Nelson Mandela Medical School); for Caprisa, for the Durban-Westville campus and for the Durban University of Technology.

This is the living room part of the huge downstairs retro meets Africa life-work share.

2: This is extra-large with its own “lounge” area. See Retro meets Africa: live-work-explore Durban. Same location but downstairs, three safe, convenient and well-appointed large live-work self-catering units—shared kitchen. Great for doing business in Durban, for international students or an adult live-work-share.

3: The large, safe, homely and comfortable room was recently home, for three-and-a-half years to UKZN doctoral student who is now en-route to San Francisco for post-doc research. See The Idler Durban named for the gorgeous wooden antique bed (with new mattress and super-comfy) that once belonged to Durban’s best-known newspaper columnist.

Morning view across the city to the ocean from the upstairs condo kitchen.

4: 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, to the Durban University of Technology 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, which are in a small well-maintained residential block in a cul de sac with a good neighborhood watch, 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.
