Our hosts were very friendly (we celebrated New Year with them!), the rooms were grand, breakfast was extensive and delicious, the surroundings are beautiful with exotic birds eating next to you! It was the best guesthouse we have ever had! Charming place.

Having first stayed at Kingfisher Country House in 2014 it was firmly on our list for when we returned to South Africa in 2016, this time with our children. We had high expectations which were exceeded by the quality of the rooms and the hosting of Sue and Phil. Yet again we were made to feel welcome and at home....

This is the best place to suit your every need, mood or desire. Too stressed to do anything energetic? Relax by the pool & listen to the birds in the forest or watch the sunbirds in the flowers in the garden. You may even see some of the local wildlife, blackbuck perhaps, wandering into the garden from the forest. Feel...

I had a most pleasant stay at the Kingfisher Country House and the hosts were most helpful and polite. The delicious morning breakfast was made most memorable by the sight of at least eight Knysna Loeries in the adjacent tree. The location is very peaceful with no traffic noise at all.

Kingfisher is a beautiful house surrounded by a lovely garden located in a natural forest. The rooms are large, comfortable, very clean, and very beautiful. The hosts, Sue and Phil, are very warm and welcoming, and give feeling of family right away. We booked for one night, but 10 minutes after we arrived, decided we want another night in paradise,...

We spent three nights with Sue and Phil in early September as part of a birding & sightseeing trip in South Africa and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Their place is quaint and extremely comfortable (we loved having the electric blankets for the cool nights), and Sue went out of her way to give us advice on where to find certain...
