We loved our stay and our hosts could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We loved our room (the Honeymoon Suite) which was spaciousand gorgeously furnished with incredible views both directly on the sea and up and down the coast. There's also a lovely beach right below the guest house so you can dip in 6 times a day...

The staff was so friendly and so helpful, We got a complimentary upgrade of the room and had overview over the ocean. So lovely! The rooms (we changed after two nights, own wish) were so nice....

I have stayed at Fairlight Beach House on two occasions because of its proximity to the King Shaka Airport when on business in KZN. I have found it lovely and relaxing - a refreshing night in a the midst of a busy schedule. It is convenient for getting to the airport for an early flight or for enjoying a pleasant...

We stayed here for a one night stopover after a long tiring flight from UK. An easy 15 minute drive from Durban Airport. BUT it is an excellent hotel with a super position right on a lovely sandy beach and we would love to come back to stay for a couple of weeks! Large comfortable room overlooking the sea, plenty...

Lovely staff, relaxing environment and well situated. Enjoyed the time away. They had great aircon and lots of information available about the area, which was very helpful. The banana bread at breakfast was delicious.

We booked this venue as a result of the great reviews this property had received from other travellers. Unfortunately, our experience turned out to be quite different. We arrived, off a delayed flight, to a lukewarm welcome - We were not offered any help with our luggage. The room was adequate but very different to that shown in the pictures...

This bit of paradise guest house pulls you outside to hear the surf (loud), swim in the Indian Ocean in mild surf, experience 5 star ac and bedding and enjoy a cooked breakfast! Every room is overlooking huge tan soft beach that goes for long distances. No nearby resorty touristic impersonal hotels. This one is the low key ideal beachy...
