I wanted a quiet spot to just chill and enjoy the beautiful bushland South Africa has to offer. What a perfect choice! They seem to cover every little detail which made me feel very comfortable. An easy drive from Joburg, and city life is left behind. Fantastic friendly service, the most comfy pillows and bed, exceptionally clean, great fresh food... More

We had an exceptional experience staying at The Feathered Nest. The food served was mouthwatering and absolutely divine. Such a great place to go to switch off and enjoy the peace and quiet. Such a personal, special touch from the hosts made it unforgettable. Words cannot describe how much we enjoyed it and we will definitely be returning soon!!

We spent an anniversary weekend and we spoilt by everyone at the Feathered Nest. Very comfortable rooms, delicious meals, a menagerie of birds and animals in the garden to provide entertainment. We felt as if we were in a small piece of paradise so close to Johannesburg - a wonderful escape from the rat race. Thanks for making our weekend... More

We stayed at Feathered Nest for the two last nights of our 5 week trip to South Africa. You'd want something memorable - and it certainly was.
