Why Travelers are Choosing B&B's over other holiday accommodation

Posted on Wed August 24, 2022.

Lately, I've been thinking about what Clint (my husband, partner, and best friend) and I have accomplished on our entrepreneurial journey of becoming the proud owners of Timeless Lodge – Bed and Breakfast, located in Umkomaas, Durban. The fact that our journey has been tough and we've made some mistakes along the way is something I truly appreciate and admire about our success. We have also learned a lot. As a child, I grew up wanting to be an air hostess, instead, I find myself working in hospitality which must be one of the hardest industries to work in now. We love it.

What makes us the happiest about owning this beautiful holiday vacation venue is seeing how happy our guests are and how much they love being here. This is what makes all the hard work worthwhile. Running a bed and breakfast is a job that stretches way beyond the normal 40-hour work week, so you really have to love what you do. As the owners, you’re responsible for everything.

Bed and Breakfasts (more commonly known as B&B’s) have evolved significantly over the years, and a major cause behind this is changing guests’ expectations. Many B&B’s now offer more than just lodging and breakfast facilities. They provide WiFi, parking, private sleeping accommodation, communal areas, braai areas, bars, swimming pools, and so on.  We also offer free referrals and booking services for local spa services, nearby sightseeing tours, wine tasting, the best local cuisine, horse-riding on the beach, scuba-diving, and much more. We are happy to arrange one of our famous lobster braais at your request, coupled with your favorite champagne!

Our experience running Timeless Lodge has proven that travelers and holidaymakers want to have a deeper connection with a place they visit. That's why B&Bs are winning against hotels and other accommodation providers.

If you're looking for a truly unique, relaxing, and peaceful experience, why not consider holidaying closer to home this year? Timeless Lodge has highly sort after vacation accommodation. All of our rooms offer a sea view with their own private patio.  A place that offers so much more than just a holiday. The sun, the sand, and the sea and the range of activities available in the area are endless. A special getaway, Timeless Lodge is the perfect place to escape everyday life's stresses.

For the adventurous, there are numerous activities to try out, from surfing to kite surfing to paddle boarding, horse-riding on the beach, golf, or scuba-diving. If you're looking for something a little less active, why not take a stroll along the stunning coastline?

The alluring beaches and sights of the South Coast conjure images of sun, sand, and relaxation. However, the coast is so much more than this. It offers adventure, excitement and so much to see and do. Umkomaas is an area filled with natural beauty and wonder. It's a place where you can truly unwind, relax and recharge your batteries. Or you can simply sit back and take in the stunning views.

Our team will assist you with making this holiday as special as you want.

A holiday that caters to your unique preferences.

Your experience awaits you and Clint and I look forward to welcoming you to Timeless Lodge.

We appreciate you!

Love Steff
