We lovedddddddd every moment of it. The flat was neat and tidy. Enough space for the kids. The host were very friendly and helpful. thinking of going back the next school holidays. Just to get away from the Gauteng fast life.

We really enjoyed our stay at Driftsands. When we arrived we were kindly welcomed by management, the room was nice and clean, management as well as staff was so helpful, the sea view is spectacular and it is walking distance to Uvongo Beach. I will surely come again and I will recommend Driftsands to all of my family and friends....

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your stay. We appreciate it. Apologies about the smell, but we have had a damp problem with the kitchen cupboards. We have solved the problem, but being at the coast it takes a long time to dry out completely. Looking forward to seeing you again. The Driftsands Team.

Great Location and such a relaxed atmosphere . With a view of the ocean and the sounds of waves breaking you can wake up happy each day. Swimming pool and BBQ facilities and great cleaning service . A very short walk to the beach with a choice of sea or lagoon swimming . Found a local laundromat around the corner...

Stove plates are rubbed with Vaseline to slow down the process. Our Wifi is only available at the hot spot at the office. We are investigating expanding the signal, but...
