      We loved everything about Birdhaven. The accommodation is spacious and well equipped, and the garden is so beautiful. Carol and Tony are just delightful hosts. Hope to be back in the not too distant future.

      This must be the most beautiful plac e to stay in KZN. Everything is just as you would wish and Carol and Tony are kindness itself. We .loved the pool, especially after golf, and enjoyed sitting watching the monkeys and birds taking turns at the feeders. We hope to return some day.

      Such a serene and pretty setting. We fell in love with this little cottage and it's beautiful, peaceful and private setting. We had enough space and the cottage was well equipped with everything we needed. Tony and Carol were just amazing and we will definitely be returning!
