We really enjoyed the stay at Fairlight. The room was spacious and the bathroom very comfortable. The view from the room was very nice and could see the sea. The breakfast was superb and catered for any type of breakfast you could want. Staff were helpfull and very pleasant. I will definitely stay there again.

What a nice place to stay. Very friendly owner when we arrive. 2 lovely rooms with a spectacular view. Too bad you need to walk by other peoples windows to get there. Little less privacy. Nice restaurants near by.

One of our best locations in South Africa. Fantastic view over the beach and the Indian Ocean from bed and even the shower :-) Nice furniture. Very bright. Service at breakfast could be a little faster but despite of that we were just delightet. Dinner at Mundo Vida is absolutely recommendable.

we only stayed here for 1 night but what a place... It overlooks the beach and all rooms have a balcony where you can enjoy the amazing view. The breakfast is good and restaurants are only 5 min walking away (go to Mundo Vida!). It was a pity we only stayed here for 1 night...

We enjoyed our stay at Fairlight Beach House very much. Beulah and her team made sure that a camping cot was ready and in the room for our twenty month old son. The views was spectacular, The breakfast each morning divine and the staff is very friendly and we will certainly be back!

The Fairlight is a privately managed guest house directly in the first row on the beach of Umdloti. We had the big room David with patio and unobstructed look at the blustering sea. The room is furnished with white blue colour style of a beach villa, really beautiful. Unfortunately, we could listen about the connecting door to the neighbouring space... More

Generally clean room. Although the bin was not emptied before our arrival. overall our room was well cleaned during our stay. We also arrived during a pretty busy time, but with several guests booked, we still enjoyed a degree of privacy and personal attention. We were not just a number and that is very important to us.Breakfast was simple but... More
