Stunning view across the Overberg with endless access to the beauty of the southern tip of Africa. Decent accommodation and friendly hosts makes this a definite top choice for accommodation. Access to Napier town which is less than 3 kilos away and a whole adventure by itself!

We spent 2 nights at Sunbird lodge in late September. It was a bit cold, but the beds have heat pads and there is also a nice pot belly stove. Wood was provided for free. Stephen and his wife were very welcoming and showed us everything we needed to know about the cottage. They suggested places to go for dinner...

The farm is on Napier mountain and when you arrive, you think you have reached the top (although you have not)! There are stunning views over the Aghullas plain and peace and tranquility. It is part of a fynbos conservancy and the owner, Stephen is chairman of the conservancy and also the local Botanical Society. He and his wife have...

The chalet was well-equipped and beautiful inside, with amazing views outside. It had a lovely braai area on the deck, as well as a coal stove in the bedroom for a cosy winter getaway. We were even welcomed with rusks in the kitchen, which was lovely with a cup of coffee/tea after the drive. The hosts are keen conservationists, so...

sunbird lodge and fynbos reserve is just a long enough drive on a Friday afternoon for a tranquil weekend breakaway, no tv!! just the quietness and the smell of fynbos that surrounds you, with the well equipped kitchen all you need to pack is something to drink and eat, you can make use of the braai, with grid and wood,...

“One of the cottages has excellent views. You may want to request this one.”

“You have 2 options - Erica or Restio and it is hard to make a choice between them. Restio sleeps 4, is a little more spacious and has a balcony with views of the Aghullas plain. Erica sleeps 2, is a thatched cottage with bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette/living area and opens straight onto the garden, chairs provided to sit on, fynbos views from the cottage windows and view of the Aghullas plain a few paces away. Both have covered parking”
