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

Ken prepared the most marvelous breakfasts and bent over backward to meet our every need. The facilities and clean and neat and breakfast is served on the deck by the swimming pool. We recommend Sunbird Mountain Retreat highly!!

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

Great holiday yet again! If you’re looking for quality accommodation and the perfect location you can’t go far wrong here. We have been here 3 times in past 5 years. Accommodation is very well kept, homely, clean and tidy. The hosts, Ken & Sharon are very hospitable and their breakfasts are always a treat. All in all the perfect place... More

This haven is out of the way yet close to everything in the Cape Town area. we stayed a week and enjoyed every minute of it. We self catered & found all we needed to cook & relax. The mountain scenery was far different from the other areas we visited. It was nice to be able to hike up the... More

The breathtaking views of trees and the sounds of squirrels with a back-drop of mountains make this place an absolute gem while still conveniently situated. (30 minutes to the airport, 10 minutes to Constantia, 15 minutes to Camps Bay…) There is not another building in site. You’ll need a car to get around to shops and restaurants, as there isn’t...

We felt so lucky to have stumbled upon this little gem of a place - hidden up in the hills behind Hout Bay and near Constantia was a little piece of paradise! Run by the LOVELY Ken and his wife - Ken could not do enough for us and helped with every enquiry we had. There are two types of... More

We travel regularly to South Africa regularly and always make a point of staying with Ken & Sharon for at least a week. They operate from two sites, the "Lodge" which is attached to their own home, and the Retreat which is on the opposite side of the valley and is by far the better of the two. The Retreat... More
