“Sublime paradise to unwind in”
Reviewed 24 September 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Jane has created a magnificent space that allows you to relax, unwind and connect with the nature around you. Thoughtful and tasteful finishes leaves you wanting for nothing. If you love to cook then you'll be spoilt for choice with her chefs dream kitchen. I came in Winter while it was raining - it was perfect to have the fire on and play some board games. Cant wait to come back in Summer now.

“Heaven on earth...”
Reviewed 24 September 2018 for a stay in July 2018

The Bird House is beautifully situated in a pristine eco friendly estate with magnificent views. The attraction for us was the remoteness and privacy of this unique location. The well designed accomodation is spacious and comfortable with an artistic flare. There are wonderful walks in forests which lead down to a secluded beach and an abundance of birdlife, flora and fauna. We absolutely loved it and can't wait to return.

“fantastic retreat”

we opened the door and immediately fell in love with this amazing place. The house is furnished in a very personal way and the kitchen is equipped with every device you could imagine, one of the best equipped kitchen we have ever seen on our travels. We spent long hours on the deck, a place with a view... and a prolific birdlife. There were two pairs of Knysa louries and many other birds and we could watch them for hours. There are some nice trails around the house and a little beach isn't too far away.

Thank you for being exceptional guests and for absolutely 'getting' what the bird house was set up to be - a place of comfort and delight that even the birds feel at home in. Thanks also for the great photographs of our beloved louries. I do hope you get a chance to visit again.

The Bird House It is a wonderful place for staying holidays in close touch to the nature and especially the birds. The house was comfortable and very pleasant. Every day we had breakfast in the morning sun on veranda and could enjoy the amazing views around the house.
The owner was very kindly and helpful. It was our best stay we ever had in South Africa.
