We had such a lovely relaxing time staying here. The owners were extremely welcoming and friendly. We were spoilt with a great breakfast and it felt as if we were visiting with friends. Thank you so much for making our stay so much fun. I would definitely recommend the guest house to anybody It was such a pity my husband and I could only stay for 3 night, the guest house was so much more than we expected! Jan & Kobus is such a great hosts and we just loved the atmosphere.. We hope to be back and will definitely recommend to everyone who plans a visit to Illovo.

Birdcage is tops. Clean, modern furnishings with a great view and the breakfasts were superb. Jan is a quiet but considerate host who made our stay most pleasant. Would definitely stay again.

I did not personally have the privilege of staying at the Birdcage B&B but I booked it for my wedding photographer that traveled from Johannesburg with us. She raved about the two hosts that made her feel so welcome and the rooms were gorgeous, she was a very happy lady. I so appreciate the success of my booking her into this venue.
