The Durban North suburb of Sunningdale sits between the N2 highway and the M12 Umhlanga Rocks Drive. The suburb is bordered to the Northwest by the Mount Edgecombe Country Estate and Golf Club, and is extremely close to The Gateway Theatre of Shopping complex by Umhlanga Ridge. This shopping mall is one of the most modern shopping malls in South Africa, sporting not only retail outlets, but also theatres, cinema nouveau, a bluetooth zone, valet parking, a fantasy forest, a stationery wave house, a climbing wall, a family entertainment centre, not to mention its numerous fast food outlets and restaurants. It's difficult to find something that you can not do at Gateway.
Sunningdale is ideally placed for Umhlanga Rocks and Virginia Airport. This is a delightful suburb of twisting streets lined with picturesque houses and gardens, and an ideal spot in which to spend a few days relaxing, and it's only a five minutes drive down to the beach and the warm Indian Ocean.
Guests' trip to Durban North :
"We visited KwaZulu Natal and because we were on a business trip, we chose to stay away from the main tourist destinations such as Umhlanga Rocks and Ballito.
We were pleasantly surprised at the numerous accommodation options available in this small Durban suburb. There was far more Bed and breakfast accommodation options than self catering facilities in Durban North and most of these were star graded which left us feeling a little more relaxed when we paid our upfront deposit.
Many of the Durban North Guest Houses, as well as some of the Durban North Self Catering properties were elevated and had pleasant sea views.
We stayed at Braemar Guest House. The Bed and breakfast accommodation was great and Sue was very helpful as our "tour guide"
We could have elected to stay at one of the Glenashley guest houses which is closer to la Lucia and can also extend in some parts to the beachfront.
There's a great shopping centre in La Lucia (La Lucia Mall) including the main KwaZulu Natal Golf Pro Shop.
Durban North proved to be a great springboard for our business opportunities because we had easy access to Umhlanga Rocks Gateway centre, Springfield Park Industrial area and North Coast Road industrial areas.
On our off days we played golf at Durban Country Club and Beachwood Golf club - both were fantastic.
We also visited the Umgeni Bird Park with occasional visits to the Durban Swimming beachfronts.
Accommodation options in Durban North is a bonus, but nothing much else happens except dining out in Some of the Durban North restaurants as well as Glenashley restaurants. I can't remember the name, but there was a lekker Portuguese restaurant in Glenashley (ask your guest house host for more info)
Besides accommodation in Durban North, the night life in Durban North is almost non-existent, except for a few very nice little pubs (or Gateway Shopping Centre in Umhlanga Rocks).......Oh, and The Sharks Board is also worth a visit.
All in all Durban North was a very quiet, clean and tidy suburb, ideal for business accommodation and easy driving access to Durban entertainment facilities.
We checked out the self catering accommodation options in Durban North and would only consider these for extended stays.
Moving on to Champagne Sports Hotel in The Drakensberg...........Can't wait."
