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.

Stayed one night and were very happy with our stay. The hosts were very friendly and will help you if you have questions. The room had everything you need to relax, a good large bed, fridge, tv and plenty of space. Breakfast was very good and if the weather is nice you can sit outside and maybe see some dolphins...

At the end of a long road trip with friends from the UK we had our final stopover at Fairlight Beach House in Umhloti. We were warmly welcomed by Bruce and his staff and made to feel totally 'at home'. Our room was magnificent with a wonderful sea view. An excellent restaurant was within walking distance so we could all... More
