Mackaya Bella is an established 4 star modern, eco-friendly bed and breakfast, situated in the newly revitalised suburb of Durban South, close to numerous restaurants, galleries, cafs and boutiques. Set in a peaceful indigenous garden, the guest house allows visitors a calm and quiet space in which to unwind and relax.
The name Mackaya Bella is derived from an indigenous shrub known to kwaZulu Natal, which thrives in the cool, shady ecosystem of the coastal forests. This indigenous theme of relaxation and tranquillity flows not only through the guest house setting, but also encourages the vision and drive of the establishment.
The guest house has 6 modern luxury en-suite bedrooms, with one additional family room and two single bed budget rooms. All rooms are serviced daily.
Mackaya Bella Guest House is a non-smoking establishment, with smoking permitted only on the patios and in the garden.
