About Virginia Forest Lodge

The Virginia Forest Lodge was designed and built by Mike and Arlene in 2006 from the ground up. Mike and Arlene’s love for people and hospitality was the soul that inspired them to open a b&b in Durban South Africa. They put their blood sweat and tears into the lodge and the outcome is absolutely spectacular.

The Lodge is situated on the edge of a green belt in a tranquil domestic setting with a variety of bird life. The rooms are decorated with an African touch and spacious interiors. Each room is well lit with their own patio or deck leading out. There is nothing better than watching an African sunset with a glass of wine from the comfort of your room or waking up to the sound of the ocean and the smell of the coast. All rooms are en-suite with showers and one with a bath. Each is equipped with tea and coffee making facilities. There is a sparkling large sized pool which guests are welcome to use.

Close proximity to golf courses, airport, shopping malls (La Lucia /Gateway) and a wide range of restaurants. Very close to the beach. See the what to do page for more info.


Arlene Hean
