Guest Comments

We were well received and had a really good stay. Very clean room, comfy bed and clean bathroom. Good, attentive hosts.

Well received and adequate.

We had a really relaxing stay at Sunbird, which was our intent. The peacefulness of the surroundings helped us to de-stress. It is also close to all sites that are most interesting to visit, even if one does so more than once. This includes good eating establishments.

We spent 4 nights at the Sunbird Guest House, Howick. What an absolutely enjoyable and happy experience. Nicky and Norman and Cherise are the best hosts one could wish for. By the time we left it was as if we had known them for years. Their hospitality and friendliness was second to none. Should we need to return to Howick we will most certainly be staying at Sunbird - nowhere else!!!! FABULOUS.


Warm, welcoming and engaging. What a find! And to have our puppies with us, a huge concession we know, meant a great deal to us. We couldn't have been more comfy in our own home.

Sleeping-OUT is proud to be South African
