Had a disgraceful stay due to an interaction with the male owner. He was extremely unfriendly and rude. Beautiful setting but completely ruined by the owner of this lodge. Absolutely shameful! Do not recommend to anyone.

Very comfortable accommodation. On the foot of the mountain in amongst the trees has a swimming pool which would be very nice in the summer. Kitchen was well equipped but note no restaurants in the close vicinity if you do not want self catering. Note all units are in one building.

This is an excellent place to stay if you are visiting Cape Town and the surrounding area. We stayed there for four nights at the end of February with our 1 year old daughter. We went for the self catering option and stayed in the zebra unit which was well kitted out and had an outside area to sit. The... More

Having read previous recent reviews, I don't think they always accurately give the flavour of this B and B. I had been recommended Sunbird by a friend who had visited about 20 years ago so enquired a few months ago but unfortunately I forgot to confirm the self catering option with Sharon. Fortunately, with just a week to go, Sharon... More

Sunbird Mountain Retreat in Hout Bay is absolutely gorgeous. Surrounded by forest and mountains you almost forget it’s just nearby the big city of Cape Town. A perfect place to relax and discover the area with plenty to do. Ken and Sharon, the owners were a big help with arranging our airport pickup, rental car and recovering and returning our... More

Our visit to South Africa was to watch the cricket and then to enjoy the sun and holiday. We had stayed at the retreat 6 years ago and decided to return there. We were welcomed by Ken who was a mine of knowledge and advise. Our room was a spacious twin room with an additional sitting area with large windows... More

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
