The stay was wonderful!! The rooms where very greative and neat and comfortable. The service was excellent and i would honestly recommend it to others. Although the location was a bit tougher to find and the indication methond of the place was not as clear it was an excellently pleasant stay.

Eva and Bruce were fabulous--warm, helpful, responsive. However, the cottage unit bathroom and other aspects could use an upgrade. The fridge froze all the food even when temp was lowered, the pillows were worn. They are busy renovating the property so I'm sure the cottage will get its turn.

We had a comfortable night at Sunbird Guest House. The hosts were exceptional - both efficient and friendly. We had 2 double rooms, each with a bathroom in a separate wing of the house which provided privacy and a private entrance to the house. We were able to check in early and off load our luggage which was much appreciated....

We as a family really enjoyed our stay. It was a cosy and comfortable room and there was enough space for the whole family. It was safe and secure, although finding it was a little hard, some signage would of been great. Thank you for a great trip

The place is nice and the owners are very helpful. They adviced us a good restaurant and made sure it was opened a sunday evening. We also appreciated the breakfast with eggs from the garden's chicken. The only negative point is the bad thermic insulation. There is one of those windows made like a louvered shutter, impossible to close properly...

It didn't matter what the problem was, Eva and Bruce were always there to help. If you wanted to go for an excursion, they gave you the best directions. If you felt like eating take-away food in the room, they provided plate, glass, etc., if you asked to park yr car for you to avoid a possible scratch, they entered...
