Built in 1890, Chelsea Villa Guest House is one of the original Victorian Homes in the area. Great care has been taken to preserve most of the original fixtures during times of renovation and decorating, to ensure that the house maintains the aura of those gracious times.

Situated right below Durban's Berea, Chelsea Villa is close to the city centre and beaches, as well as having easy access to the main freeway. We are directly on a regular bus route, which makes getting around a pleasure.

Davenport Centre is a two minute stroll from us, where you will find among other things, a supermarket, bank, chemist, newsagent, restaurants and coffee shops.

Durban's Botanical Gardens is also a great trip to indulge yourself on the indigenous plant life and birds.

Your hosts, Alison and Neville Munro, place emphasis on friendly hospitality and personal service. Should you require transport to and from the airport or bus terminus, this can be arranged. Please let us know in advance to avoid disappointment.

Chelsea Villa consists of nine serviced, en-suite twin rooms. Each one tastefully decorated with care and pride.

Tea and coffee making facilities are available in each room, for you to make use of at your own leisure.

Five of our nine bedrooms lead onto the tropical pool and entertainment area.
