Enjoyed a wonderful one night stay here in June, 2016. Can't beat the oceanfront location, wonderful deck outside the clean and comfortable rooms. Bathroom was small, but that didn't negate all the positives about this place. The included breakfast as tasty and plentiful, prepared to order. Wish we could have stayed another night!! Owners were friendly.

Great welcome from lovely people and a one night stay when we would have loved to have stopped longer. Most individual rooms having direct views from the bedroom & terrace across to the Indian Ocean. A friendly greeting in the lounge from the owners and a really lovely breakfast before we left. Oh yes, we certainly would stay here again.

The Fairlight Beach House B&B in Umdloti has an excellent location with a wonderful sea view with safe parking on the premise. The rooms and bedding are clean, the breakfast very good and the staff very friendly and helpful

Really an excellent stay. Beulah was ever accommodating with changing our room to an excellent view with a balcony. Breakfast was really wonderful as the staff went out of their way to accommodate our request as we are Muslim and eat only Halasl food. They even changed their crockery and cookware to prepare our breakfast. Thank you so much for... More

Loved every minute of our stay at this magical guest house! Thank you for the warm and excellent hospitality! The view from the deck was spectacular. The location is ideal only 15 mins uber ride from the airport. We stayed in the 'Michelle Room' and it was everything I expected and more! Wholesome & healthy breakfast served every morning! Can't...

We stayed here for two nights as it is so close to the airport. It was our first stop in South Africa. We enjoyed the proximity to the beach, excellent breakfast and bright spacious room. Glad that their staff helped us to get our luggage up all those stairs but being elevated gave great views. Owners provide beach towels and... More

We truly enjoyed our stay, room was clean,comfortable and beautiful. Location ideal, just across from the sea and close to lovely restaurants. The only downside was insufficient tables for breakfast overlooking the sea and the "unwelcome presence" of "insects" around the breakfast table, hence my rating for cleanliness.
