We were a group of 8 birders sharing this delightful cottage. Plenty of room to move without falling over each other. Cottage had absolutely everything we needed and as birders we enjoyed the salt pan full of birds right on our doorstep. The Milk Wood trees are gorgeous and created wonderful shade for parking as well as sitting outside. The three bathrooms were clean and quite adequate for the 8 of us. Bedrooms spacious and everything felt fresh. We loved the veranda and had plenty of space to sit inside and outside. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a break away with some peace and tranquility. Would go back for sure!
we had a wonderful stay at Birdsong. Everything was perfect! The house was well equipped, spotless clean and the beds very comfortable. The views from the deck were amazing and we were enjoying a sundowner while looking at cormorants and flamingos at the pan. Great place to stay.
We spent a most wonderful relaxing weekend in Birdsong, enjoying the beauty of the nature reserve from our very own veranda. We viewed a huge variety of colourful birds on the salt pan and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this unique setting. Birdsong is fully equipped and every need is taken care of. It is furnished with superior quality finishes and is a light and airy space. Ideal for those who desire time away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We will definitely be back!
The house is warmly decorated and is spacious but still cosy. Ideal for two families with children or a very large family but if it is just two of you the downstairs open plan area with adjoining bedrooms will not leave you feeling lost in an impersonal space. A really lovely stay and would highly recommend it.
This is a big house with a lovely location on the pan. There were only 4 of us, so it felt a little like we were rambling around in all the space. The highlight was definitely the bird life, especially the flamingos. It's about 15 minutes to Hermanus, but there is quite a nice beach a short drive away.
The house has everything you could possibly need and so much more. Spotless clean, stunning views, beautiful furnished, amazing artwork, well located and easy to find. An absolute gem that we are looking forward to visiting again.
Peaceful almost spiritual setting gazing from the well set up veranda overlooking the salt pan full of birds - perfect for twitchers. Easy walk to the picturesque cliff walk that leads to the beach at Onrus Excellent accommodation with good quality linen and bedding plus a fully fitted kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher - short of nothing you could want. Includes a gardener and an excellent cleaner once a week, plus the delightful Daphne and husband who looked after our every need.
Good WIFI signal - it did not bother us that there was no DSTV as the setting had all of us entranced.
