Lee & Dave are excellent hosts, very friendly. The unit was neat and clean. Driftsands is close to shops and food places. Perfect place to kick back and relax and if you are lucky you will get to see the beautiful whales if you are facing the ocean.Will definitely be visiting again.

A lovely complex. The apartment has everything needed and close to all shopping malls and restaurants. There is so much to do around Uvongo. A well deserved holiday with beautiful views and warm water. Will be back for sure.

Friendly and helpful. Unit was clean and had a great view of the ocean. Great location for a holiday. Flat was a little small, but still comfortable. Management was very friendly and helpful. Would visit again.

We were going to Uvongo vir more than 20 years each December for our holiday (Family of 4). Slept only 2 times at other places, until we found Driftsands (right on the beach). It is without a doubt the best holiday accommodation in Uvongo !!!! Your vehicle is safe and you also feel safe because there are rules in place and it is definitely working. We give the guests, Lee and David Mutch, more than 10 out of 10 for everything they do to keep all the visitors happy. We will definitely go to Driftsands again and again and again.

Please in future can aircons be installed because the fans do not do any justice especially during the December season it gets extremely hot & humid inside the flats. The rooms get very very hot & stuffy. ....

They had everything we needed to enjoy a perfect and relaxed holiday... Gas braai was so nice to have there. The beach was within walking distance too. Spar and other shops also close by too. Beach was stunning and not over crowded. Highly recommend..
