“Fantastic Find”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The room was away from the main house with a beautiful view of the amazing garden from the private patio area. The room was light and airy with a lovely, large comfortable bed. The shower was huge in a well equipped bathroom. Breakfast by the pool was delicious, with plenty of verity on offer. One morning the local vervet monkeys put on a wonderful display for us, which added to the magic. Jonathan was fantastic in providing us with the best places to eat, he has an excellent taste in restaurants and we were not disappointed.The clean beach, with life guard is a short walk away next to a lovely Italian restaurant.
I can not praise Liz and Jonathan enough, they were wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble, we were made to feel at home. An excellent place to stay with or with children.

We really enjoyed our short stay here. Jonathan and Liz made us feel most welcomed. Our room was clean and tidy. The swimming pool was crystal clear and refreshing after a scorching hot day. I am vegetarian and I was pleasantly surprised at breakfast time when I was fully catered for. I plan on visiting Sunbirds B & B again and recommend it to others.

My partner and I stayed one night on our way from Durban towards Cape Town. I am afraid we naively underestimated the vast distances we had to travel along the way and therefore we did not arrive to check in until almost 9pm. I was astounded by how understanding and hospitable Jonathan and Liz were. They were extremely patient with us as we kept them up to date with our ETA and booked a table at the nearby restaurant and even met us on the street outside to give us the keys so we could go straight to the restaurant and make last orders.

Once we got to Sunbirds having eaten I was blown away. The house is amazing with a beautiful pool. We stayed in one of the rooms outside of the main house which was well equipped and beautifully decorated with a view over the garden. the main house has a stunning pool with loungers and a sea view.

Breakfast was amazing and I can't say how much our hosts made us feel welcome.

The beach is a short walkaway as is the restaurants by the river. A well stocked honesty bar just adds to the homeliness of the place.

My greatest regret is not being able to stay longer and enjoy the peace, ambiance and excellent hospitality.

Jonathan and Liz are nicest people that i have came across, we were welcomed with warm hand and felt at home. We liked our room with its own garden, very refreshing. The breakfast was divine and with surprise starters. We liked the house set up, the inhouse bar, the guest lounge were tops and friendly talks with Jonathan. the swimming and the seaview was something else, the beach is just 4min away. We really enjoyed our stay at Sunbirds and travelling to the surrounding areas was such a great experience. Definately will come back again to Sunbirds

Liz and Jonathan clearly enjoy hosting guests. They made us very welcome and were always on hand to offer help and friendly local knowledge. Our bedroom and bathroom were well appointed. Breakfasts were excellent and leisurely with a daily surprise starter and a friendly chat. The guest lounge and honesty bar provided good place to spend an evening when not dining out.
We would highly recommend Sunbirds to fellow travellers.

Richard and Liz are absolutely the greatest innkeepers! Their home is spotless and comfortable with a salt water pool and views of the Indian Ocean. Beach just a short walk away. Had been traveling a great deal, and the quiet of Sunbirds was the tonic and respite we really needed. The individualized attention was better than some 5 star hotels ... and so much more personal. Recommend Sunbirds unreservedly!

The breakfast was great.Beautiful pool, big enough for 4 rooms. Very close to a wonderful beach. Our room was really nice except for the fridge a bit noisy and there were very few sockets to charge mobiles, cameras, etc.
