A great place, right across the beach - I could wake up and have my coffee on a balcony watching the sea in the morning. The breakfast was great, the staff very helpful and friendly. Definitely recommended!

Cosy B&B just 15 minutes drive from Durban airport. After a 24hr journey it felt like coming home. We were very tired and spend the day relaxed next to the swimming pool.
Rooms are nice and the friendly hosts. Lots of nice restaurants within walking distance as well.

We started our visit to South Africa and tour around Kwazulu Natal with a three night stay at the Fairlight. The owners were very welcoming and the views over the Indian ocean from this place are stunning - the breakfasts which are served in the garden are second to none thanks to the fantastic staff here . The little beach town of Umdloti (pronounced um-shlow-ti by the locals) has some very nice restaurants where we ate every evening and then walked home.

Umdloti is a northern suburb of Durban and is a great base for travelling to the city and visiting other local attractions such as uSharka park - we did both of these and had a great time doing both. We could have stayed longer here because the weather was great and the place very relaxing. Thumbs up from us.

Room Tip: Sea facing room a must.

The hospitality at Fairlight was the best I’ve seen yet. The atmosphere was lovely, the food was always fresh and delicious, and the staff went beyond the call of duty to make our stay more comfortable. Management also made every effort to check up on us regularly, while giving us the right amount of privacy.

Thank you to Louise, Tracy and the great cooks in the kitchen. We will definitely be returning!

We had a 3-day break to the KZN North Coast and my wife decided on the "Fairlight Beach house" after a brief search on the internet. We were not disappointed, our room "Kevin" was the last one available and unfortunately we did not have the great seaview that some other room have. The room was well appointed with good quality bed and linen. We enjoyed the breakfasts at the poolside and the staff was friendly and efficient. The location of this Beach house is perfect: close to the airport, close to good restaurants and Umhlanga for shopping, movies etc

Room Tip: Ask for full seaview.
