Nestled in the bush, the property gets its name from the plentiful birdlife that flock to the Nylsvley Nature Reserve, a 30-minute drive away.  Forming part of the collection of self-catering cottages at Birdsong, is Sunbird, a four-sleeper thatched rondavel situated on the upper level of the farm property.  It is within walking distance of the Uitkyk function venue overlooking the dams and valley below and is ideal for families with children or two couples.

This welcoming rondavel features a high ceilinged open-plan living space, decorated with an elegant stylish chandelier, sloping wooden beams and black slate floors. Large framed bird paintings take pride of place on the high walls, while comfortable rattan chairs with cream cushions are cornered around the flat screen television. A four-seater wooden antique dining table offers a cosy space to enjoy a meal.

Sunbird’s two bedrooms feature double beds and graceful antique furnishings reminiscent of a bygone era. The spacious shared bathroom has a bath, shower, toilet and basin. An added bonus is a unique shower with a rustic stone wall and large glass door. The bedrooms and bathroom all lead off from the main living space.

In the compact kitchenette, guests will find all the usual amenities they need to enjoy to prepare their own meals, such as fridge/freezer, two-plate stove and microwave. Also included is a kettle, toaster and a range of cutlery and crockery.


A cash deposit of R300 applies and is collected on check in. This will be returned upon departure once your inventory list has been gone through with the relevant duty manager. Any breakages will be charged for accordingly and deducted from the breakage deposit. Damages exceeding the deposit will still be liable for. Guests are therefore expected to complete their copy of the inventory upon check-in. This applies to both listed items and structural items such as furniture and fittings.
