“Outstanding B&B”
Reviewed 6 October 2010

Liz and Jonathan our hosts are a delightful friendly couple that took care of our every needs to make our 5 day stay an outstanding experience. We were greeted on arrival and shown to our lovely room and very comfortable double bed. The room came fitted with TV, DVD player, i-Pod docking station, bar, fridge, tea & coffee making facilities, dressing gowns, matching slippers, plenty of cupboard space, the all important safe and air-conditioning & fan. The very clean bathroom came fitted with bath and shower and was equally well stoked with lovely towels.
We were then shown around the immaculate modern and minimalistic property which has a lovely clean swimming pool with comfortable sun loungers and towels, spacious well equipped guest lounge with lots of reading material, DVD's and CD's before heading to the well stocked honesty bar.

The breakfast was another imaginative and great experience particularly the starters which was always a morning delight to be surprised with. Our hosts clearly delight in what they do to make this such a well run and outstanding B&B and only a 3 minutes safe stroll to a stunning quiet beach and a lovely restaurant.

A great and relaxing stay....thank you.

A much needed getaway to hide out from the world and introduce my man to my country and hometown. Jonathan and Liz made this a real treat and I was again, so proud of my country people and what they had to offer.

The rooms were immaculate and romantic,finer detail for a full travelling experience. The recommendations on Food and sight seeing areas were spot on.... They were friendly,helpful but still ensured you privacy. The personal touch was felt in the daily breakfast, prepared with passion and love for what they do. I have recommended Sunbirds to many already and ma sure to return soon myself!!!

Our family is residing in South Africa for almost one year and for our holidays we decided to visit (from Johannesburg) the South East - and North East coast of South Africa.
For the choice of accommodation we used several booklets and brcochures and picked Sunbirds B & B for the South East coast.
We were very pleasantly surprised by the beautiful rooms and excellent breakfast served by both Jonathan and Liz Shaw. We enjoyed the sunshine in our room every morning and were looked forward to Jonathan's special omlette or Liz's scrambled eggs.
Looking back at all the accommodations we stayed in during our 2 week holiday, Sunbirds came out as a definite winner (not strange after the many prizes they won).
We surely recommend Sunbirds B & B to anyone!

We stayed here for a week on our way to Cape Town and it was amazing. Lovely rooms and surroundings. The pool area was great and the owners and staff couldn't do enough for you. South broom is a beautiful village with golf club, shops, restaurants and the beach.
I would highly recommend to anyone to stay at Sunbirds whether a day or a week. Brilliant.

I have stayed in many B&B's and I can honestly say that this is by far the best I have stayed in. The facillities are excellent and there is an amazing attention to detail. This place is perfect for a holiday but also just what the doctor ordered if you find yourself passing though.

Sunbirds guest house can be recommended without hesitation. The location is great: within walking distance to worldclass beaches and restaurant. The owners and staff are friendly, professional, have great attention to detail and allow space for privacy. Breakfasts were superb and the attention to detail in the rooms is exemplary. We were left wanting for nothing. Security is also excellent and we were made to feel very safe.
