The double-storey house comprises of a large comfortable lounge with open fireplace, dining room, large patio, and outdoor entertainment area. The Luxury Suite and Family Suites are located upstairs, and there is a self-contained cottage in the garden next to the pool, as well as a two-bedroom self-catering unit.

Other facilities include plenty of safe parking, barbecue facilities, and a heated pool.

Shenindor is conveniently situated for easy access onto the N3 to Durban or Pietermaritzburg, with Hillcrest just a short drive away.

Accommodation was very well positioned to the show at Shongweni. Owners were very accommodating and friendly. Very basic facilities but comfy

We had a very good three day break at Shenindor. Unfortunately we did not have breakfast so cannot comment. Very clean, quiet and scenic. Close enough to Hillcrest and Durban but located in a beautiful country setting. Bridgette is a really good hostess/owner. We'll certainly be back and can recommend it to anyone wanting a really peaceful stay.
