My husband and I have just returned after spending a wonderful 7 nights at Sunbirds. Jonathan & Liz really are the perfect hosts. The breakfasts are "to die for" - unbelievable and no oil - how do you do it Liz?? Reading through all the reviews there really is nothing more we can add except to say thanks again we...

Dear Joan and Peter, Thanks so much for taking the time to write your review, which was so kind. We're delighted you enjoyed the breakfasts and found them "to die for", but we would just prefer you returned so we can treat you once more. Regarding the no oil - maybe this will go a little way to countering the...

Sunbirds in Southbroom is perfectly located for any kind of holiday, whether its to rest or just sight seeing along the South coast. Jonathan and Liz are amazing hosts. They supplied us with all the information about the area and where to dine prior to our arrival. On arrival we were welcomed like old friends. We felt welcome. The rooms...

Stopping for a short while at Sunbirds is a must for anyone passing south of Durban or looking to relax for a few days on the south coast. The delightful spot overlooks the Indian Ocean surf and is only a few minutes walk to a great steakhouse. The kind owners will advise on excellent dinner spots, beaches and the best...

It is very rare, I return to the places, I have visited before. But Southbroom is a positive exception. The first reason is the choice of fantastic golf courses around and the second - extremely friendly owners of the B&B Sunbirds. This time, I have brought with me the group of golfers, so we occupied whole guest-house. As usually Jonathan...

We stayed at Sundbirds in November 2011 for 5 nights and enjoyed it tremendously. So what can we add? It has all been posted before and we can say it still holds perfectly true. Yes, the location is great, just a very short stroll downhill to reach wonderful beaches, which we had almost for ourselves to walk for hours. Great...

As promised, we were back! Liz and Jonathan still are excellent hosts and serve delicious breakfast with a lot of love for details. The rooms are very nice decorated and in perfect shape and condition. A sundowner at the honesty bar is as welcome as the restaurant suggestions and bookings the hosts do for you.

It was just delightful to meet someone connected to the area through the Norweigan Missionaries and to chat and hear a part of history which we knew a little about, but were not familiar with. If we then enabled them to relax at the end of their stay with us, so much the better.
