Location! Location! Location! The Crescent Guesthouse is an ideal location for those that need to be centrally based and conveniently located for commuting to various Durban venues, whilst avoiding dense traffic yet still within easy reach of any of Durbanís attraction, Indian Ocean beaches, and venues.
The property is nestled away amidst lush verdant gardens on the doorstep of the Durban CBD and an on ramp away from the N3 freeway so even game parks, the Drakensberg Mountains and Midlands Meander are an easy drive away.
The Crescent is therefore a perfect tranquil gateway in the fascinating KwaZula-Natal region

The guesthouse is ideal for a range of mutually exclusive accommodation options from family getaways to corporate functions or individual bookings. Our philosophy is clean and comfortable with an upmarket edge. We can accommodate any option you can think of so bring your caravan/tent etc with prior arrangement if that's what you want.

Attractions and Activities
For the sport enthusiast, our location is also close to the local soccer, tennis, cricket sports grounds as well as swimming pool. We are also well suited for the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup as we are only 5 minutes from the newly built Moses Mabhida Stadium due for seven matches as well as a semi final. Or why not try swimming with Sharks at the uShaka Marine World located down the round. International Divers are also amazed by the world renowned Aliwal Shoal on the Natal South Coast and captivated by the worlds unique and greatest marine spectacle, the Annual Sardine Migration followed by feeding frenzy of birds, dolphins, whales and sharks.

Beautiful Durban is the largest and busiest port city in Africa. Because of this, there is an extensive road network leading to and from any destination in South Africa. The Crescent is therefore your gateway to KwaZulu-Natal and beyond.
