“Great place for an wonderful stay”
Reviewed 15 May 2012

We stayed with Jonathan & Liz in March 2012. They have a WONDERFUL place, amazing location, a short walk to the beach. Another great advantage is great italian restaurant at the end of their road, also in walking distance. I totally recommend staying with them. Oh and: did I mention: they make some of the most exciting breakfast we have ever had.

Hi Christian and Tina

So pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, we certainly enjoyed your invigorating company too. Since you left we have had more dolphin and hopefully within the month we'll have the first humpback whales arriving and if we are lucky, the Sardine run, or as the BBC called their documentary of this extraordinary natural event "The Greatest Shoal on Earth!!" We hope you'll be back sometime in the future, as our Autumn and Winter are just wonderful, the sea a minimum of 19C and clear blue sky days, often windless and temps up to as much as 27C.

All the very best Jonathan and Liz - so pleased you enjoyed the breakfasts!

We headed to Southbroom for a relaxing end to a very busy holiday with friends in Durban. Sunbirds is the perfect place to stay. Its got an excellent pool (refreshingly chilly in the evening), fully stocked honesty bar and the most delicious breakfasts! They even cater to fussy men that don't like yoghurt!
The area itself is really safe and there is an amazing Trattoria five minutes walk away towards the beach.
Jonathan and Liz are very welcoming hosts with a gorgeous home. Massive thanks to both of them for a great end to our holiday! Go and stay with them!!!

Dear Nicola

When we come to rewrite our web site or brochure, we think we'll have to ask you to do it! You have expressed so many of the factors that we feel we want to give and share about our B & B and our location, still a great secret for so many who don't stray off the beaten track......This was how we found the area and then came back, so we just hope more and more folk will do as you have done, but particularly we hope we see you again in the future.


Have a great 2012 Jonathan and Liz

My husband and I decided to spend our honeymoon at Sunbirds after we visited Southbroom and thought of it as " A little piece of paradise". We were definitely not disapointed as Jonathan and Liz's hospitality and wonderful breakfasts more than exceeded our expectations. They were always helpful and attended to our every need with pleasure. The room was always spotless and well equipped with everything we needed. It was a delightful stay and we would recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy a peaceful, beautiful and memorable honeymoon or holiday....Well done Jonathan and Liz in creating the perfect holiday destination

We stayed for 6 nights at Sunbirds. Would have liked to stay for longer. The rooms were extremely comfortable, spotless and well equiped with much thought put into little details to add to the comfort. The welcome was really good and nothing was too much trouble. Liz and Jonathan were so helpful in sorting out anything we wanted to see or do. The breakfasts were wonderful. Terrific setting and lovely food (masses of it). The pool was lovely and it was so nice to have a sitting room where you could relax or watch TV if you wanted to. Never made to feel you were in the way. Would thoroughly recommed it to anyone. We hope to go back for another visit.

Great location. Johanathan and Liz excellent hosts as well as excellent chefs :) breakfast a real treat. Be prepared to spend a while at the breakfast table...after all that food.

If relaxing and lounging at the pool is your kind of holiday then this b and b is for you.

Very safe @ night with all the necessary security required.

All amenities close to Sunbirds as well as the beach.

Well worth a visit.

Thanks to our hosts for a very delicious and unexpected anniversary gift.

There is something pleasing about seeing other people's pleasure and so it was in this case with you celebrating your wedding anniversary. As for your comments about breakfast, delighted as always to share recipes with happy guests and we look forward to seeing you again.

We chose Sunbirds based upon its excellent reviews and were not disappointed in the least. We stayed for just one night to break up a long drive but from the moment we arrived we saw that it was a place where we could easily have stayed longer. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and the breakfast 'surprises' served by our British hosts Jonathan and Liz were a nice touch. Thanks to you both!

We only had one night at Sunbirds. We were very well looked after with a spotless room, comfy bed and a great breakfast.
They even made a reservation for us at a very good localish restaurant.
We would certainly stay again when in the area.
