Was looking forward to the stay based on the reviews, but was very disappointed. We stayed in room 6, which was not accessed through the guesthouse door but through the private innkeeper's door. The room was nothing like advertised on the website-- I think the room was part of the innkeeper's suite that was quickly converted into a rentable space,...

Dear Ms. kangaru2, It is with regret that I learned your expectations founded in our TripAdvisor reviews of our 5 star luxury condo suites were not met upon booking a USD $79.00 overflow room. In light of your experience we will now contact every booking in advance of arrival to ensure they've read this room's details and reiterate how it...

My wife and I stayed at Birds of a Feather Oceanfront Bed & Breakfast and had the most wonderful time. Our hosts Dieter and Paphada Gerhard were most gracious and made my wife and I feel at home. We took this time to get away from our busy lives in hopes of spending some quality time together. We could not...

Birds of a Feather Oceanfront is an awesome B&B located in a quiet and inspiring neighbourhood. As a solo traveller, I have not booked one of the luxury suites. However, from my single room, I enjoyed quality time, peace of mind and outdoor activities such as cycling and running on trails nearby with spectacular sightseeings of the lagoon and countryside....

Fabulous location, terrific rooms, superb breakfasts. Lots of advice on what to do in the area. All in all an amazing place which we would highly recommend. The whole place set by the lagoon with hot tub and jetty has lots of wildlife to view.

Dieter and his wife made us feel welcome at their lovely B&B. We were in the honeymoon suite and it has lovely views of the water. If you are a bird watcher you can see them up close with the bird scope and binoculars they provide. The room was spacious and bed very comfortable. The highlight of the stay for...

We stayed at Birds of a Feather for 3 nights and was blown away. We stayed in the Luxury suite, and was amazed by how clean it was.
