Placed in beautiful surroundings. The owner Ken is a true gentleman and cannot do more to help you, from serving up cracking breakfasts to offering good advice on day trips. Hout Bay is only a 10 minute or so drive away. There are plenty of bars and restaurants I recommend Spiros.

Tranquil and clean spacious self catering unit in a setting surrounded by gorgeous towering trees. We were lucky enough to watch some squirrels chasing each other up theses trees. Lovely friendly welcoming hosts! In the mountains yet only a short drive to the sea, a place I will definitely recommend to family and friends

In May 2015 I booked two family suites and a B&B rental for December. Paid the 50% deposit immediately and found Sharon the owner very accommodating and extremely pleasant. Was really looking forward to the holiday at this facility. Unfortunately due to a change in personal circumstances I needed to cancel the booking in November. Called the resort and spoke... More

Fantastic place, huge grounds with pool. Really peaceful as sat away from busy areas. Would highly recommend. Staff were brilliant and friendly. Price wise you will find nothing like this at this rate. Great value and breakfast included.

We stayed at the Sunbird Mountain Retreat in 2008 and had such a great time that we booked in again for our 2014 trip. I'm delighted to say that it was as good as ever. In a gorgeous, quiet, wooded location up in the hills of Hout Bay, with a serene pool area, it's the perfect base from which to... More

Sunbird mountain retreat was excellent rooms where spacious well thought out. It is ideal place to go if you want to be near the city but out of the hussel and bussel. The views over the montain and valley are breath taking. We really enjoyed our stay.

We have been staying at Sunbird Retreat for several years on a self catering basis and reviewed previously. We have just returned from our latest trip and have found it to be as good as ever. Ken is currently building additional accommodation and this is being done to as high a standard as the other units. Being at the end... More

We booked this gem of a place after extending our stay in South Africa by 4 days and originally were looking at Camps Bay….well we feel like we lucked out by nothing being available there! We had a large spacious room with comfortable beds and a great bathroom, tea and coffee facilities in the room and our own fridge topped... More

An unexpected business trip left my partner and me with one evening to share. Both nature lovers made Sunbird Mountain Retreat in Hout Bay the natural choice. We were met by Cynthia who showed us our one bedroom self contained cottage. The scenery sets the retreat as an amphitheatre, a backdrop of the most majestic mountains with lush trees and... More
