We absolutely loved our (too) short stay in the Kingfisher apartment. The accommodation is secluded yet close enough to walk to the beach and to hear the waves at night. There are 2 levels - bedrooms downstairs and fabulous open plan living area upstairs opening out onto a covered patio with built in BBQ/braai - with a sea view. Plus all the beach stuff you need - umbrella, body boards, buckets etc. Hosts were so lovely and really helpful. We left feeling totally rejuvenated. Really recommend this spot.

Spindrift is located in a very quiet part of Umdloti making it a very peaceful place to stay. We had a wonderful stay in the Rainbird Unit which has a fantastic view of the ocean from the balcony. The unit is well equipped and cleaned every day. The beach is within walking distance but you may have to drive to the main beach and shops. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in the area.

Room Tip: The Rainbird Unit has the best views,

Our family of 4 had a great stay at Spindrift in the "Kingfisher" Unit - as you see it on the Web, is what you get! The garden is beautiful and the unit was airy, light, well equipped and most importantly, clean! Its serviced every day which is a bonus. Our unit had a balcony with a beautiful view of the sea, with braai facilities as well. Beach is within walking distance, however, you have to drive to main beach, restaurants and shops and we found parking to be a problem, but then it was over peak December/January holidays. If you looking for a lovely family unit, this is the place to go! Thanks Judy for your friendly welcome and helpfulness! (not to mention the wine and chocolate treats! - thank you!)

Room Tip: The "Kingfisher Unit" is not ideal for older people, as it has stairs up to the main living area.

My husband first found Spindrift cottages for work purposes when the soccer stadium was being built in Durban. Very quickly any chance we got we would stay at Spindrift. We have stayed here from the time our kids were tiny babies til now 9 and 6 year olds. We love the beautifully maintained cottages. The surrounding grounds and gardens are exquisite. The short walk to the beach is lovely. The owners Pat and Judy are absolutely incredible. Simply cannot go wrong.

Awesome little place at the back of Umdloti. Judy catered to everything we wanted. Flat was clean and serviced daily. Friendly staff and very friendly dogs. Views from the Rainbird unit were excellent. Will definitely consider coming here again
