Travellers Review Award 2020

Birds Babble was an unexpected,glorious find! Plenty of outside space to sit and enjoy the beautiful weather that the Lowveld is famous for. Very clean! The kitchen has everything you'll need for your self-catering stay, with a gas grill on the veranda that is perfect for cooking a meal for two people. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is fabulous. This is the first place we've ever stayed that had good heavy duty screens on the windows and a sliding screen on the door! There is also a ceiling fan on the veranda and one in the bedroom. These are not cheap fans either! They circulate the air and are very quiet!. AWESOME!

When you stay at Birds Babble, you're within five/ten minutes of great restaurants, Mediclinic and the mall.

Of note... if you're traveling with a friend, the room is open ...only door ways between the rooms, no doors and the walls don't go all the way up. However, if it's hot in the Lowveld and you need the aircon, the open plan allows for the air to circulate better and that is so worth the open plan!

Birds Babble is a place that we will return to now that we've found it! Thank you Rene for an amazing stay!

+ Rene, our host, was wonderful! She has put careful thought into every detail of this special property - which, as an added bonus, is on the edge of a private game reserve, so keep a lookout for all sorts of small animals & birdlife!
We stayed in the 2 bedroom villa which was magic! We even hosted a meal for 10 and had all kitchen, braai (barbecue), eating utensils necessary. Her single bedrooms were also immaculately furnished, with a splash pool on hot days. Can't recommend Birds Babble enough, it was imply awesome!

We would love to come here again!
+ The one thing that couldn' thave been improved upon! What a fabulous place to stay and we wish we could have stayed even longer! So much thoughtfulness went into this. We felt very much at home.
- We wish we could have seen the bush babies.

+ The structure was really nice; the house, the swimming pool, everything was perfect. A lot of very nice little components in the house were making the difference. The kitchen was great.
And what to say about the owner? The lady is absolutely fantastic! It was really a pleasure to stay.

Amazing accommodation. The extra touches e.g. bath salts, insect repellent, hand and body lotion etc. and the décor just too amazing. We highly recommend Birds Babble.

What a wonderful guesthouse in a beautifully tranquil setting. The facilities were wonderful and we did not want for anything. I only wish that we cold have stayed another week.

Many thx for a simply wonderful stay at Birds Babble. We didn´t want to leave and that say just about everything! This is a supremely comfortable, spacious and exceptionally well equipped guest cottage tastefully furnished and decorated with great flair. Immaculate housekeeping and perfect maintenance...inside and out.
