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.

My wife, I and our 17 month old stayed at this wonderful venue. Perfect location, quiet and well maintained with all amenities covered, even serviced units daily. Owners are hands on and check on you often. Will be back!

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...

Spindrift offers exactly what we want from a coastal hideaway - two blocks away from the quieter side of the beach, a patio with a view of the ocean, everything we need for an easy self-catering break, near the airport, parking, in a little area with just enough to walk to and everything else a short drive away if we...

Absolutely wonderful place to go for a family beach holiday . Set in the green canopy of coastal forest with good birdwatching, the short walk down to the beach through a tunnel of dappled light and back again after a glorious hot morning on the private beach was one of many highlights. Very clean, simple rooms in blue and white...

An absolutely beautiful place away from the crowds. The "Rainbird" cottage was beautifully equipped with everything needed for a comfortable vacation. A stones throw away from the beach. The walk to the beach, down the tree lined street, was as refreshing as the clean beautiful beaches itself. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will definitely be back.
