Quietly located right opposite the beach with fabulous sea views over the Indian Ocean. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly staff and the owner's welcome was both warm and genuine. We visited mid winter but were still sunbathing all day. Perfect place for a relaxing stay.

There is nothing negative we can say, the people, location, food were all excellent. This is the only place we have returned to in 3 visits to South Africa, it is that good. From the warm welcome to the sad farewells, a great place to relax.

Stayed in the Fairlight in may 2014. The owner gave us a warm welcome and the luxury room had a perfect view on the ocean. Set your alarmclock at 6.00 a.m., make yourself a coffee and sit on the deck watching the sunrise and the early bird surfers doing their morning session. Breakfast is good, some juices, fruits, bread and... More

We had a lovely seafacing room and the full breakfast on the deck was fabulous with every need catered for. We were booked for the night spa at Mangwanani Sibaya and this stay was a short drive away which was very nice when we finished the spa late at night
