Reviewed May 2, 2010

Liz and Jonathan are such wonderful hosts - they anticipate your every need whilst being unobtrusive at all times. Breakfasts superb - very varied and well presented, served with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Liz's baking delicious!!

Great establishment. Had lovely room with sea view and monkeys on our terrace! Few steps to large swimming pool which we had to ourselves during our 3 night stay. Few minutes walk to beach and to nice lagoon side Italian restaurant with enjoyable food.

Make sure you take Jonathan's recommendation and go to Flavours Restaurant too.

We will certainly be back when we are next in the area. 3 nights just wasn't enough.

Thanks for a most enjoyable stay.

Had a really lovely stay. The location was ideal near beach and restaurant. The rooms were fully equipped and very clean with daily service. The view when having breakfast was outstanding. The breakfast was the best I have ever experienced with the hosts always ready to cater to our every need. The best B and B I have ever stayed at. A truly 5 star establishment.

The reason to come to Southbroom was a wedding. Sunbirds is a beautiful B&B, with lovely hosts. We had a very comfortable and calm 3 nights stay. Time to relax during our -for the rest- active holiday!
Breakfast is excellent!!!

Stayed here for 2 nights in late January, 2 nights isn't long enough to do the Sunbirds justice. Very warm welcome from Liz and Jonathan after a long drive from Jo'burg, and very comfortable beds with large spacious bathroom. The breakfast as everyone mentions is excellent and its nice having breakfast overlooking the Indian Ocean. Looking forward to spending more nights at Sunbirds in the future.

This is a wonderful place to stay for some days, especially if you look for a real chill-out. The building was completely renovated recently and remade into a very light, airy place, perfectly matching the warm and sunny environment of the Hibiscus coast seaside. Once we started with Liz's and Jonathan's special breakfast (most memorable to us the oxymoron "English summer pudding"), looking at the ocean, we felt we got the right pace to relax here quite deeply even within just 3 days. Just laid down at the pool and found some time for reading, also found it quite inspiring to write some lines.
The rooms are neat and tidy, beds comfortable, and the hosts just the most endearing kind of people. It is easy to find out that Jonathan has been in the tourism industry for a long time before settling in Southbroom. You will find them always caring for you, ready for a chat when you feel like it, and at the same time very discrete and respectful of your privacy. Likewise, you are likely to meet the few other people who may enjoy the place at the same time, but we never felt it was too close.
Urbanites from Joburg, we also liked WALKING the beach endlessly (it really takes less than 5 min to get down there), and back through the village. If you feel like a bit more entertainment than we did, you'll find some good movies in a large collection and can watch them in your room or in the lobby. It all feels pretty much like home for a while.

We travelled by car from Kruger to CapeTown and had got tired of big, overpriced, boring hotels along the coast and found this by pure chance. Was great, friendly and relaxing. They seem to specialize in golf-players (we aren't) but it was only a few hundred meters away from a great beach, with no buildings clammed up to it. There were excellent restaurants within walking distance and the owners were verrrrry friendly! I have already recommended it to golf-playing friends in Sweden!

My wife and I had a wonderful 2 night stay at Sunbirds during the first week of January. The setting is superb, with a lovely pool area offering views down to the Indian Ocean and the accomodation is excellent providing all you would expect from a B&B of this quality. Jonathan and Liz are excellent hosts, doing everything possible to make you feel at home and even accomodating me with a fantatsic breakfast (it really is one of the best breakfasts you will ever have) before 7am to ensure that I had plenty of time to make my 7:20 am tee off time.

If you are looking for a B&B, with delightful hosts, a great setting, with a 5 minute walk to a beach, less than 5 minute drive to a picturesque golf course and close to some decent restaurants, then look no further than Sunbirds, you'll come away feeling relaxed and energized.
