Fairlight Beach House is everything you could want in a b&b. It's lovely, with fabulous views of the Indian Ocean. The owners are friendly and welcoming. The neighborhood is safe and there is a great restaurant - Mundo Vida - in walking distance. The beach is right across the street. Colin is a great host, attentive to everyone's needs, and does a great job spotting the dolphins for you as they swim past in the Indian Ocean as you're eating your breakfast. I hope to go back and stay longer next time.

Delightful, beautifully appointed rooms and house. The views will make you want to watch the waves and tides all day from your porch. Excellent breakfast service; restaurants within walking distance. The owner is quite happy to socialize and tell you about the town and it's origins.

There for 2 weekends in a row. what an experience. Was worth the long year wait from when we booked & spoke to Colin the first time. Totally relaxing with an awesome atmosphere, friendship, hospitality, food, luxury, view, sound of the sea & all you want right on your doorstep. Recommend to any couple even with a child. Try it out you will go back. Let us local South Africans support this astranomically outrages Beach Guest house. An experience worth living out & going back for again & again. Colin & Bealah we will be back. Ian & Belinda

The hosts (Colin & Beulah) were extremely nice and helpful.
The staff were also very nice and the guest house right on the ocean was a dream.
We will always remember these 3 days in good memory.
If we visit South Africa again, then again here.

My family and I stayed here for the first two days of our trip to South Africa. The rooms are big, airy and have magnificent views of the beach. Breakfast is served overlooking the beach and the staff could not have been more helpful. There are a number of great restaurants a short walk away. A great start to our holiday, very welcoming and helpful, we have never felt so relaxed at the start of a trip.
