We have been coming here for many years & it never fails to captivate us. This year there were 16 members of the family to help celebrate my mother-in-laws 100th Birthday. We travelled from UK & Hong Kong & as always Rietjie made us feel welcome. She is a gem. Very spacious, clean self catering apartments right on the sea.... More

we were born and raised in Durban but haven't lived there for many years and surprised our family and friends with a visit. The location is wonderful, right on the promenade, beautiful ocean views and shops and restaurants all within walking distance. Reception staff and cleaning staff were all very helpful and friendly. The apartment was ideal for our needs.... More

We stayed at Fleetwood on Sea during the Amashova cycling race in October 2014. All arrangements prior to our stay were dealt with in a professional manner and in quick time. Reception was great with a smiling Driekie and the "local porter" Wonder that assisted with our luggage. The location of the units is on the Umhlanga promenade with beautiful... More

I stayed at Fleetwood with my father and we were both very impressed. I had booked one of the un-refurbished apartments as they were cheaper, but - although some of the fixtures were a little dated - the apartment was top quality and clean. The kitchen was well equipped. The balcony was very spacious and included a braai (BBQ) and... More

Traveling as a family of 4 we wanted self catering accommodation with separate bedrooms for the kids. This accommodation fit the bill and threw in stunning ocean views! We opted for apartment 62 which being on the top floor meant we didn't get any sound from other tenants and had a huge balcony (runs the length of both bedrooms and... More

We stayed here for a weekend and enjoy the stay very much.The location is very good as you are at the beach not to far from shopping and you can go and visit Ushaka also. We can recommend it to anyone on a budget. If you can afford the front rooms go for it you wouldn't be disappointed init.

We were fooled by the pictures on the website expecting luxurious accommodation having booked a luxury unit however it was a very simple unit. I must admit that it was very clean, good location, easy access to the beach and the staff are quite efficient. There is also a washing machine and drier on the premises (which I did not... More

We visited Fleetwood on sea, and while we opted for the cheaper room, we did not expect what we fond. One would expect that in the heart of Umhlanga, a certain level of quality would be maintained. We did not find this. We had a tv that was not allowed to be turned off 24/7 (facing the bed, no real... More

The unit was a great surprise as we were anticipating no sea views and older furnishings. The unit did half a sea view from the South facing balcony, albeit a small view. The complex has easy access to the beach and is delightful.

The apartments are situated in a lovely position overlooking the beach with large balconys with sun loungers and table and chairs. There are lovely walks on the prom, and about a10 min walk... More
