From the first phone call to the final good bye, we had such a pleasant and enjoyable experience. The rooms are comfy, the food is delicious, and the staff are incredibly friendly! A special thanks to Efraim and Greta for taking care of us and seeing that our needs were met quickly and effectively.

Just finished a one week stay at Birdwood and now I finally understand why people staying in guest houses. I stayed in the main house in a beautiful, old style room with en-suite and dressing room which was far more comfortable for the length of stay than a hotel room ever could be. The level of service was excellent and...

I stayed here for three nights on business. They were very accommodating - I arrived at 8am but my room was ready and I was even offered breakfast. The place felt very secure with plenty of security and they also used a good taxi company for shuttling you around. It does have it's own style and perhaps is not the...

Stayed for 4 nights. Slightly faded colonial look, very comfortable, good breakfast and very friendly helpful staff. A good choice if you don't want a big hotel.

This is a beautiful, well kept B&B type of place. The rooms are lovely, modern, and spacious. Surroundings are very quiet and you can even hear the birds in the morning. Lovely green and lush gardens. And a beautiful small pool. Wonderful breakfast. The service is impeccable. No hesitation to recommend.
