“Lovely house - great location”
Reviewed 16 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I love renting houses on the water and this one did not disappoint. The house had a terrific view of the mountains, if you like birdlife there is lots to see including pink flamingoes and it is so lovely and peaceful. My family were really pleased with this choice and if I was in the area again I would happily rent this house. It was also clean and well equipped.

“A gem”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Our stay at Birdsong was such a delightful experience. The house is tastefully furnished, clean, and equipped with everything one needed, and more. The view from the front verandah over the Vermont Salt Pan with the mountain backdrop is hard to beat. We spent 10 days there, and we'll certainly go there again. It's a gem.

“Peaceful, relaxing spot that is a perfect mix of style and laidback holiday vibe”

We have loved staying here. Sitting on the porch, looking over the pan with the amazing birdlife and mountains behind, feels like you are alone in the wilderness rather than in the middle of a holiday town. And the sunsets are spectacular. And yet, when you want to go for coffee, to a restuarant or shops, or wine tasting, they are 5 minutes away.
