Lovely like home!

We cater for for large groups and families travelling together by providing an environment of comfort and safety in a friendlly and pleasant homely setting.

Interaction with guests
i am very flexible when it comes to my guests. i have provided tour guide services for first time visitors to our beautiful country and we are happy to do so at no extra cost. i am available all the time for those who need me but there are guest who prefer to have the privacy of the house on their own and we are always ready to oblige. we also have a kitchen where we provide meals and a standby chef for those who want to design their own menus. we also allow our guests to use the kitchen to prepare their own meal.

House of Two Birds is a great getaway. Very quiet and ideal for meetings. A great chef and he made some pretty amazing meals.. We were well accommodated and the silence enabled the team to achieve our objective for the weekend. Thank you Jane, Liam and Majani for a great time of stay, we will most definitely be back.

Management response:

Thank you so much for your great review. I am glad you were able to enjoy and meet your objectives. We are looking forward to seeing you next time.cheers!
