The rooms were beautifully decorated and clean. Delicious breakfast served every morning, and Magda and Ian were very friendly and welcoming. The guest house is in an excellent location, near the beach and close to all main roads.

African style touch 👌. Cleanliness was not compromised at all. The hosts were warm. Breakfast was yummy. If you need a little break and spoil, that’s the place to be,



Magda and Ian are amazing. They are always on site and made sure your were happy and comfortable. Breakfast every day was great and nicely presented. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. Love the microwave in the room too.

A lovely slice of paradise. Friendly hosts. Lovely breakfast. Clean tidy rooms. convenient location. I'd happily stay there again.



What a GEM...... Friendly staff, delicious breakfast, immaculate room, absolutely wonderful. We will be back!



Your initial thoughts upon arrival was very impressive with the neat garden and entrance , clearly marked out parking spaces etc.
The welcome was very cheery and the owner was on hand to help for small things with a smile.
Breakfasts were lovely, the omelets were actually one of the best we have had in years! Definitely worth the breakfast.
Rooms were neat and incredibly tidy, clean and covid sanitary. We felt safe while we stayed there and each room is quite private which is ideal.
For a late night snack it’s safe to nip across to fresh stop for a sandwich !


Port Shepstone

I loved everything about the place.the service was perfect from the minute we entered the gate to when we left.I loved the rooms and decors.the place was so clean and neat. LOVED LOVED!! The hosts were amazing thank you



Magda and Ian is a lovely couple who is able to make one feel so at home in a friendly, warm and relaxed manner while enjoying all the benefits of a smoothly run operation! The booking was easy, the changes so easily accommodated and our stay was a very good experience.



Our stay at Akidogo was fantastic. The place is very clean and quite. Friendly people.
Nice breakfast. The area, ( Amanzimtoti) was also good. Easy to get into the freeway. Will definitely visit Akidogo with my entire family



Magda and Ian was very hospitable and made us feel at home. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms was very neat and clean. The parking area for the vehicles is also safe. Our room was spacious and was cleaned every day. I can recommend them any time.



A lovely one night stay with Ian and Magda. From check in, through the spotless and beautiful rooms, to Ian"s specialty breakfast omelettes the 5 of us had a great stay. It was very gratifying that as we were not in too much of a hurry, Ian spending an hour of his day telling us about Durban and the area. Thank you



Thank you very much for making our stay such a memorable time. We loved having little chats and both of you were absolutely just perfect hosts. You went out of your way to attend to our needs. Much appreciated.
Rooms as always, perfect. Breakfast just the greatest.
We cannot emphasize enough how awesome our stay was with you.
We will definitely recommend you on the top of our list to anyone else and we ourselves will definitely be visiting in the future.

The facilities are excellent and everything was spotless!! A fabulous place to stay!!!!!
The hosts, Magda and Ian, were wonderful and made me feel at home immediately. The beds have to be the most comfortable I have ever slept in!!! The rooms are well laid out with everything you need, and lots of space.
There was nothing that I didn't like.

I was travelling with my aged mom - for her birthday. Ian and Magda took extra special care of her (and me) - and I can highly recommend this B&B to anyone.


South Africa

I have really enjoyed my stay. I like the area as it is very quiet and next to the beach.If you enjoy the beach that is not too clustered and civilised, you know like the old beaches, Warner Beach is the place to go. I clocked in much later than 7 o'clock but was still recieved a very warm reception. Akidogo is very clean and the beds are very comfortable.

Our room was beautiful, very spacious, well appointed, clean and cared for in every detail; there is a small fridge, kettle, tea, Coffee, TV and air conditioner. The bathroom is nothing short of amazing, with a lovely large shower, double sink and plenty of toiletries. The owners (Germans) were very kind and they even prepared a hearty picnic lunch (we have even had lunch!).



Coming from the Hospitality industry and If ever i wanted a time out from the busy life and a relaxed atmosphere at some get away place, Akidogo is a place that takes you no where other than a relaxed and comfy environment with such pleasent people, Ian and Magda. You guys rock!!! Massive rooms with a calm ambience and short of nothing.

We really enjoyed our stay at Akidogo Bed & Breakfast. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Our room was super clean and neat and was also quite spacious. We had a delicious breakfast, there was almost too much to eat.


Cape Town, South Africa

Ian and Magda know what guests want. We can truly say that we experienced an excellent stay in the comfortable, modern and spacious rooms. They made us feel at home away from home. The food is well prepared and more than expected. We shall recommend this Guest House to anyone who can appreciate only the best in life! Greatly appreciated!

A beautiful guesthouse with great hosts. Value for money and pleasurable! Highly recommended!



Akidogo is the place to be, everything there was on point, even the owners were very friendly. They do know how to handle their guests. The place itself is nice and clean. Thanks again TravelGround for showing me such places and thanks again to the couple at Akidogo.



Dit was volgens my vrou die lekkerste kusvakansie en verblyf. Gasvryheid en netheid het geseëvier.

Ons sal weer van Ian en Magda se gasvryheid wil gebruik maak. Waar kry 'n mens nog die gevoel van warmte en familie, en met spesiale tyd. Ook het Ian my bederf met een van my spesiale ontbyt-disse. Dankie julle twee!

Ons het voorwaar baie lekker geslaap tydens ons verblyf.

Die kamers was heerlik gerieflik met vars linne. Die ontbyt was smaaklik en daar was hope gasvryheid wat mens baie welkom laat voel!

We had a wonderful stay at Akidogo with warm and friendly hosts Ian and Magda whose main aim is to please and make their guests comfortable and welcome. Our rooms were spotless and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be back for a longer stay the next time we are in the area.



Very nice place to stay. Lovely well decorated and clean room, very comfortable. Great service easy booking, and good communication. Good location, close to shops, mall, eating places. Serve a very yummy breakfast!!!



A very warm place and a warm welcome, truly beautiful. The host are very kind and the rooms are spacious with wonderful services. A perfect place for any day and anytime, also very easy to find. Would always come back

Magda and Ian really make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious, beds are very comfortable so you get a good nights rest. There's a lovely pool to cool down after a day's work. Its the ideal Guest House to stay whether its for business or holiday.

South Coast vs North Coast? The answer lies in your choice of accommodation! And what a way to rediscover KZN South Coast through the tranquil and comfortable Akidogo Guest Lodge....perfect location mid way to everywhere: Wild Coast Casino, Margate and splendid beaches on the south.....KIng Shaka Airport, North beaches, Shopping malls and Durban central on the north! Couldn't ask for more!!



One of the best bed and breakfasts we’ve ever stayed at. Quiet, clean and comfortable.To start off our weekend Magda waited up for us to check in as our flight was delayed, twice. Even upgrading our room (which was stunning and cleaned top to bottom whenever we were out). Ian then made arrangements for us the next day to pick up our hire car from the airport which we could not get for ourselves the day before as our flight was so late. Amusing and interesting stories around breakfast table while enjoying some delicious food and coffee of which there was more than enough. All in all an amazing place with amazing hosts.


Cape Town

Magda and Ian have turned their guest house into a haven of quiet and good taste. Beautifully decorated, well-equipped and catering to every whim. My breakfast needed to be Gluten-Free and dairy free and Ian cooked the perfect breakfast after consultation with his butcher to make sure the bacon and the chicken sausages were GF. Above and beyond the call of duty for a host. Definitely worth a return visit and a benchmark for guest houses



Akidogo is a lovely place to stay. It is very clean and the décor is top class. The owners are super friendly and the breakfast was good. It is very secure with plenty parking and the rooms and bathrooms are huge. Highly recommended.



Magda and Ian your hospitality is out of this world. This is our second time around and let me tell you the standard of this guest house are very high. Magda and Ian let you feel at home. The breakfast is well prepared and enough for hungry family. The rooms are beautiful, modern and spacious to accommodate a family. I can truly recommend anyone to stay at A’kidogo Guest House, you will not be disappointed. Friends for life!

...by the incredibly generous low price. I almost passed it by, but am very glad I made the booking. The accommodations were stunning. They were very comfortable and my daughter and I felt wonderfully cared for. I cannot recommend this place enough.


California USA

This is my third trip to this area of SA. I am traveling with my husband while he is doing business. Akidogo is my favorite of the places we have stayed!
The beach is a very easy, quick walk. We both like to run/jog, the beach as well as the road is great/safe for that. The grocery market is just a bit down the street as well. Right across the street is a laundry that has same day service and very inexpensive.
As for Akidogo itself; very clean, spacious room with large, lovely bath room. Our room had a Jacuzzi tub and large, tiled, open shower.
The bed is super comfortable.
There is a lovely spa a short drive away.
Magda and Ian are wonderful hosts! Magda suggested the spa and made the reservation for me. Because my husband had the car, Ian made a special service of driving me to the spa !
The breakfast is great. I really enjoyed the eggs cooked to order along with choices of accompaniments.
As I was by myself during breakfast, Ian was quite good at keeping me entertained with lots of pleasant conversation!!
We will happily return!

A Most welcome stay during a sad time as we had to attend to my fathers passing, friendly and compassionate owners who not only provided us with an excellent establishment but also with words of encouragement during our loss. I will be back most definitely.

Mr Pinkerton


I stayed for a week on a solo holiday. The room (excecutive suite 5) was beautiful, spacious and comfortable. All the little things are exactly as advertised for the room. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. I had a wonderful stay and highly recommend Akidogo.

Mariette van Graan


Best holiday we had, very nice and peacefull.
Magda and Ian made us feel at home they are very friendly, the guest house is spotless.
Breakfast was divine. Highly recommended and will definately go back again



One of the friendliest and welcoming couples I've experienced on my travels. A home away from home!!

I'd definitely stay at akidogo again whenever I'm in amanzimtoti. And I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing and calm stay

Billy Phitsane


Only there for one night, very pleasant, clean and well furnished. Magda and Ian made us feel very welcome - we had absolutely no hassles. Even the monkeys were welcoming! Would definitely stay there again.
