Exceptionally warm and friendly service. Lovely clean and airy rooms. The location was convenient for our purpose of business in Port Edward. What I liked most was the hospitality of the owners. The road leading to the B&B is not well maintained but that is the norm for that part of the South Coast

Having toured South Africa for over 2,000km starting from Cape Town it could not have been a better chance to relax at Sunbirds for few days.

The room was away from the main house with a beautiful view of the amazing garden from the private patio area. The room was light and airy with a lovely, large comfortable bed. The shower was huge in a well equipped bathroom. Breakfast by the pool was delicious, with plenty of verity on offer. One morning the local vervet monkeys... More

We really enjoyed our short stay here. Jonathan and Liz made us feel most welcomed. Our room was clean and tidy. The swimming pool was crystal clear and refreshing after a scorching hot day. I am vegetarian and I was pleasantly surprised at breakfast time when I was fully catered for. I plan on visiting Sunbirds B & B again... More

My partner and I stayed one night on our way from Durban towards Cape Town. I am afraid we naively underestimated the vast distances we had to travel along the way and therefore we did not arrive to check in until almost 9pm. I was astounded by how understanding and hospitable Jonathan and Liz were. They were extremely patient with... More

Liz and Jonathan clearly enjoy hosting guests. They made us very welcome and were always on hand to offer help and friendly local knowledge. Our bedroom and bathroom were well appointed. Breakfasts were excellent and leisurely with a daily surprise starter and a friendly chat. The guest lounge and honesty bar provided good place to spend an evening when not... More

Richard and Liz are absolutely the greatest innkeepers! Their home is spotless and comfortable with a salt water pool and views of the Indian Ocean. Beach just a short walk away. Had been traveling a great deal, and the quiet of Sunbirds was the tonic and respite we really needed. The individualized attention was better than some 5 star hotels... More

The breakfast was great.Beautiful pool, big enough for 4 rooms. Very close to a wonderful beach. Our room was really nice except for the fridge a bit noisy and there were very few sockets to charge mobiles, cameras, etc.

Very good location, only 5 walking minutes to the beach. Sea is very rough, so if you want to swim in the sea, you better walk/drive to Marina Beach nearby (25 min. walk). If you love fine dining, make sure that the few options you are having in this splendid area are open: La Terraza, Flavours (both were closed during... More
