Reviewed 17 February 2012

However you intend to spend your holiday, sightseeing, sports or just relax on the pool or beach, Jonathan and Liz will anticipate your every wish and assist you in the most effective and subtle way. My wife and I spent 5 days at Sunbirds and felt welcome and at home the moment we arrived. The Sunbirds is tastfully furnished and primaryly located on the Indian Ocean with just a 4 minutes walk to the beach and the first class Trattoria down there. We plan to come back to the South Coast and if we do so we will for sure stay with Liz and Jonathan.

My husband and I have just returned after spending a wonderful 7 nights at Sunbirds. Jonathan & Liz really are the perfect hosts. The breakfasts are "to die for" - unbelievable and no oil - how do you do it Liz?? Reading through all the reviews there really is nothing more we can add except to say thanks again we had a lovely relaxing week and we defintely will be back.

Dear Joan and Peter,

Thanks so much for taking the time to write your review, which was so kind. We're delighted you enjoyed the breakfasts and found them "to die for", but we would just prefer you returned so we can treat you once more. Regarding the no oil - maybe this will go a little way to countering the "greasy spoon" image of too many English breakfasts!.

With thanks again.

Sunbirds in Southbroom is perfectly located for any kind of holiday, whether its to rest or just sight seeing along the South coast. Jonathan and Liz are amazing hosts. They supplied us with all the information about the area and where to dine prior to our arrival. On arrival we were welcomed like old friends. We felt welcome. The rooms are tastefully furnished and comfortable. Breakfast is perfect. We would definately go back to Sunbirds and Southbroom.

Dear Renee

We were just delighted to enable you guys to relax and find out what a great location we have on the South Coast, as well as some really sumptuous eating, some of it of a really high technical skill level. We also, as you found have great beaches, with some wonderful relaxing watering holes.....

With thanks for having taken time out to write us a review, as a small establishment, it is particularly appreciated.

we hope to see you again.

Best regards

Jonathan and Liz

My husband and I just got back from the most relaxing 6 nights in Southbroom. This B&B was really a treat. The rooms are immaculate, the service is second to none and a highlight are the breakfasts lovingly prepared by the hosts and served on the veranda overlooking the sea. the house is a short 5min walk from the beach and a short drive into town for restaurants. The house boasts a really beautiful and refreshing swimming pool where we lazily spent many hours. We absolutely loved it and will keep going back. Thank you to the owners for a truly stunning holiday.

Room Tip: The cottages separate to the house are more private.

Stopping for a short while at Sunbirds is a must for anyone passing south of Durban or looking to relax for a few days on the south coast. The delightful spot overlooks the Indian Ocean surf and is only a few minutes walk to a great steakhouse. The kind owners will advise on excellent dinner spots, beaches and the best way to enjoy the amazing gorges a short drive inland. One tip, don't rush with a single night but stay longer. I will be back.

It is very rare, I return to the places, I have visited before. But Southbroom is a positive exception.
The first reason is the choice of fantastic golf courses around and the second - extremely friendly owners of the B&B Sunbirds.
This time, I have brought with me the group of golfers, so we occupied whole guest-house.
As usually Jonathan is unbeatable in the arranging the perfect schedule for playing on many courses and evening visits to the best restaurants around and Liz in preparing unforgettable breakfasts.
Moreover, everything in Southbroum area, like accommodation, dinning and golfing is in very reasonable prices and the visitors are truly appreciated.

Room Tip: both rooms in the main building

We stayed at Sundbirds in November 2011 for 5 nights and enjoyed it tremendously. So what can we add? It has all been posted before and we can say it still holds perfectly true. Yes, the location is great, just a very short stroll downhill to reach wonderful beaches, which we had almost for ourselves to walk for hours. Great Golf courses are nearby and Jonathan is the perfect advisor on where to play. While it is not surprising that an Englishman knows a bit about Golf, this one does also know about good food and where to get it;-) , so his recommendations were excellent and he even makes reservations. The same goes for any other activity you might plan, Liz and Jonathan are very knowledgable and helpful in giving you tips on where to go and what to do. The rooms are very nice, clean and comfortable and the breakfast is just the icing on the cake. We still miss the daily surprises which were always delicious. We have been to South Africa numerous times now, but the first time at Sunbirds, however, we will surely come back. Thank you Liz and Jonathan for your great hospitality.
