Overview

Petla's Place is situated in the quiet leafy suburb of Westville, well out of the hustle and bustle of the city, yet close enough to main freeways for easy commuting to the various attractions and business districts of Durban.

We have three individual, en-suite and well appointed double units as well as one 4 sleeper self catering unit are on offer. All the units are en-suite, each with its private entrance, separate from the main house, safe parking in front of units, a private guest braai area, with a large pool in a verdant garden where bird life abounds. Tea/coffee making facilities, TV, bar fridge, heaters and fans are available to all units. All units are serviced daily. Dinner by prior arrangement and airport shuttle services can be arranged.

Petla's Place one of Westville's most established and well-known guesthouses was originally founded by Leon and Petla Alkema way back in 1994. Over the past two decades they have seen thousands of happy guests, many of which becoming dear friends, coming and going through their doors. Originally from the Freestate, they brought to the city with them the warm hospitality their native countryside is so well known for. They are ably assisted by the ever smiling Doris Mzimela who has also been an integral part of Petla's place right from the onset twenty years ago. Owner-run and hands-on they will ensure that all your needs are catered for, no matter how small.

We pride ourselves in our well kept and our lush and leafy garden. This ensures that ample habitat is preserved for the myriad small animals and birds who call the tropical coastline home. With a garden birdlist of more than 130 species and several small and interesting mammals it is bound to make your stay, however brief a memorable one.

Here are a few creatures we encounter.
Birds: A surprisingly wide variety of birds (more than 100 species in fact) make their home within the boundaries of our garden. Some specials include, Woolly-necked Storks, African Goshawks, the ever present Purple Crescent Louries or Turaco's as they are now called and the striking but ever elusive Narina Trogon.

Large spotted Genet. Not many people realize secretive creatures even exist in the suburban woodlands and fewer have ever seen them. However these two kittens were recently photographed in our garden! Dwarf Mongoose have been spotted a few times on the property.

Epaulette fruit bats, the metallic ping of these large nocturnal creatures can be heard emanating throughout the warm tropical summer as they fly around the garden foraging on fruits.

Then for those with a larger appetite for nature, the Palmiet River nature reserve is a mere ten minutes away.
