Friendly hosts, wonderful place.
Peter and Sandy were amazing hosts. Very friendly and welcoming. Felt like staying with (very attentive) friends! A guest house with real charm, character, 1000x better than a soulless chain hotel would have been. I will definitely make Anchors Rest my default place to stay in Umhlanga.
