We were looking for our break last weekend. The location is perfect and Beulah and son very helpfull. Unfortunately we did not get the same service at breakfast on the Sunday. We were waiting for someone to take our order whilst the owners were having theirs. Only when we left the table they made an effort (one still wearing a... More

I arrived from UK after a long journey and was allowed to check in early to what was a large and very well appointed room. Everyone was welcoming and friendly and so keen to make my stay just the peaceful haven I needed after an all night flight. Excellent breakfast and a great location by the sea with good restaurants... More

We had an amazing stay at Fairlight. It truly is like being in paradise, waking up to the sound of the ocean and the views are magnificent. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The staff are all friendly and helpful. We would definitely return. Thank you making out stay enjoyable. The Cloete family

We really enjoyed the sound of the sea as we fell asleep. Room was clean and well decorated, and bedding and towels were great. Service was great as was the breakfast in the morning. Room was a bit small and would have preferred one of the bigger suites, but unfortunately they were booked out. Will be back!

We enjoyed our stay there a lot. Beatiful guest house with superb view on the ocean. The staff was very nice and had some great recommendations for dinner. The beach is right in front of the house and there are various places you can walk for dinners,

Bruce, his wife and their staff were very friendly and helpful. They served a nice breakfast in the back garden by the pool. They lent us bodyboards and had a lot of other stuff for water sports. We had a good stay during three nights.

We stayed one night here. The B&B is great. Very good location, rooms and breakfast. We also got great help from the B&B to book tables for dinner. Got some free beers as well at the pool . We saw dolphins just 50 m out in the sea. Simply great.

We stayed for a few days in October. Contact was very nice and friendly. We really felt at home and had a wonderful stay. We especially valued the flexibility. Breakfast out on the terrace was great - even though the variety is probably not comparable with an all inclusive hotel buffet.
