About Rainbird Chalets B&B

Rainbird Chalets Bed and Breakfast is set on a working farm and welcomes the discerning guest, offering a tranquil stay in the magnificent lush and scenic valley of Malkerns. The views are exquisite, with a dam set at the bottom of the garden and the Mdzimba Mountain Range beyond. Malkerns is a Malaria-free area.

The valley is set between Mbabane and Manzini, the two main cities of Swaziland. The beautiful gardens, dam and wetlands are alive with bird life. Bass fishing in the dam on a catch and release basis is very popular. The friendly staff are always on hand to help you. There is a laundry service and one can access the Internet in the main house. There are many good restaurants close by for a choice of lunches and dinners. The airport is a 15-minute drive away and your hosts are more than happy to provide transport if required.

Each chalet boasts either a fully equipped kitchen or a kitchenette for self-catering, air-conditioning, DStv and other luxurious comforts. One can choose from two double room chalets which is ideal for families, or the single room chalets overlooking the dam, ideal for a romantic getaway. All chalets and the double room have private entrances. There are barbecue facilities which is a must to savour the beautiful African sunsets and share your experience with other guests. We offer a pool and dam for those hot summer days. You may even come face to face with our resident otters.

Generous English and continental breakfasts are served on the patio overlooking the swimming pool, sweeping gardens, dam and lush green mountains. For lunch and dinner Bed and Breakfast residents can visit one of the many popular restaurants nearby.

              The location is really nice, a tranquil spot. The wooden chalets are OK, but a bit dated. The stone chalets that we actually booked, but were not given, are much nicer, and have better views. All in all our stay was OK, and the owners friendly, but the price was too high for what was offered. We were left out of water 3 times (the water was needed somewhere else) , and the fridge did not work (was repaired though, but we had to wait in our house for 1,5 hours during the repair), and the front door did not close properly so that the owners' dog came in our house all the time to sleep on our...

              Beautiful decorated chalets, very neat and clean. Dot the owner was very kind with us and gave us some tips about where to dine and what to visit close by. Good breakfast on the varanda with stunning views. Highly recommend it!

              We stayed only for a night but we felt really well welcomed. It has a green garden ideal for a walk and a river passing by. Perfect for couples and families.

              Beautiful surroundings with a gorgeous view from the breakfast patio .A very nice crew , very kind and helping . Try to arrive before sunset : it's a bit difficult to find the way by daylight, almost impossible at night .
