We Stayed several days at this B&B, owned & operated by the Cardwell's; because we were taking a private birding tour with Patrick. This is one of the best venues we've experienced, in part because of the wonderful backyard birdwatching, which results from the Cardwell's decision to grow only native shrubs. Helping to preserve these important nectar producing flowering shrubs helped us study fast-moving sun birds and other nectar eaters at our leisure. Cardwell hospitality is marvelous with an introduction to Rooibos Tea and wonderful recommedations at local restaurants. Whether your visit to S. Africa is for golf, botannical tours, or wildlife and/or bird watching, you cannot go wrong by letting the Cardwell's organize and guide your tour. Independent tours are organized, as well

Avian Leisure should be renamed Avian Pleasure because that's what it is to stay there. We are truly lucky to have found AL and it was everything we expected and more. This was our first trip to Sth. Africa and we stayed for 18 days in the Avian Leisure apartments Watsonia and Shearwater, upgrading to Shearwater on our final week.. Both apartments are luxuriously furnished, spacious and with extremely comfortable beds. They are spotlessly clean and serviced twice a week. The views across False Bay are amazing. Dolphins and Whales are regularly spotted. Our hosts Patrick and Marie-Louise could not have been more helpful booking excursions for us and catering for all our needs. We noted over 20+ different species of birds in a 1 hour period in their beautiful extensive fynbos garden. All this from our own balcony where we also watched the nightly visits of the 3 porcupines feeding just below us.....magical.The pengiun colony at Boulders Beach is literally 5 minutes away. Patrick is the font of all knowledge regarding South African birds and wildlife and not only was a great help in identifying some of our bird photos but also gave us lots of very useful advice and directions regarding locations for seeing particular birds. We would like to thank Patrick and Marie-Louise for making our holiday special. If you are thinking of visiting the Cape Town area do yourself a favour and book a stay at Avian Leisure.
