We had our summer holiday as family with 4 teenaged boys in the Kingfisher unit. Fantastic unit, very idyllic setting, tropical feel being so close to the nature reserve. Was an excellent choice being so close to the beach and quiet neighbourhood. Units was nicely serviced daily which helped a lot. The patio and braai facilities with sea views gave...

This is the second time we've stayed at Spindrift Guest House - this time in Loerie Cottage. Our first visit two years prior, my entire family took advantage of this wonderfully-located venue and occupied all its accommodation offerings. The perfect choice in the beautiful locale of Umdloti whether you're a single business person seeking a seaside refuge, couples, family groups...

2-9 January 2017 We spend 7 nights in the Rainbird Unit as a family of 4. The kids ages 8 and 11 loved every minute. With a 2 minute walk to the beach, we spotted monkeys, buck, beautiful birds and dolphins a few times too. Restaurants and shops conveniently located. Judy and Pat are lovely hosts and added a personal...

My wife and I have stayed here several times for a couple of weeks at a time, when I travel with work. We just love it. It's rural settings (out of season), peace and quiet, and with easy access to the beach, restaurants, basic shops, the N2 highway and the airport, all makes Spindrift our only choice. Judy and Pat...

Spindrift is an affordable option for any traveller. Even though there is no direct view of he ocean, one is merely short walk from the beach. The hosts and cleaners are friendly and welcoming. We arrived late at night with no problem to access the guesthouse at the late hour.

Have stayed here several times over the years and I have to say I would not stay anywhere else in Umdloti. Judy and her husband Pat are very welcoming and attentive without crowding you. The Kingfisher apartment has a large balcony, a braai and fantastic views of the Indian ocean. You are literally a three minute walk from the sea....

My wife and I stayed at Spindrift Guest House three nights at the end of January 2016. The spacious room has beautiful terrace with stunning view on the ocean. The house is surrounded with beautiful garden with lots of birds. You feel like in a heaven. Judy, the host, is very nice and friendly. Strongly recommended!

I usually keep an eye on the birding and wildlife potential offered by any accommodation that I book on my travels. The allure of doing some bird photography and viewing whilst on other business or pleasure is an opportunity not to be missed. And Spindrift came out tops in both its proximity to nature and the quality of the accommodation...
