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

A stones throw from the beach and not too much further from the airport, this comfortable guesthouse is ideally situated for travellers from afar. A variety of rooms available, some close to the sea and some further away. Ours was above the breakfast room and by any standards was huge. The balcony gave us a sea view from a distance... More

Booked the Louise Room or Honeymoon suite to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Last stayed here 2 years ago, in the same room, and the view from our bedroom window is worth the entrance fee alone ! To be honest, décor and furnishings looking a bit tired now and the property would substantially benefit from a bit of tlc. Cleanliness... More

We booked this accommodation six months ago based on ratings on this site and I cannot say that we are disappointed. We have stayed in the Peter Room for 11 days and service has been great. Breakfast is wonderful and the staff are pleasant. Buela is a magnificent manager and makes every attempt to make your stay as comfortable as... More

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.
