Modimolle Birdsong Cottages is a property for self catering in Modimolle for tourists visiting the Waterberg region.

About Modimolle Birdsong Cottages

Set in the scenic Waterberg Mountains lies the small Bushveld town of Modimolle (previously named Nylstroom). Here, in the heart of the Bushveld on a 32 hectare farm, are Birdsong Cottages, a series of self-catering cottages 14 kilometres outside the town on the R101.

Birdsong is an easy 90 minute drive from Pretoria and 2 ½ hour drive from Johannesburg. As soon as guests turn off the R101, they start to unwind. The farm also features a country pool, two farm dams and surrounding gardens.

Self Catering Accommodation

Birdsong Cottages boasts a pleasing variety of accommodation to suit everyone; from comfortable budget or standard eight sleeper cottages at the foot of the two farm dams; to a relaxing two-sleeper stone cottage, a cosy four-sleeper rondavel and six-sleeper Villa located on the hill. For couples, friends, families and small groups that enjoy peaceful natural surroundings, few can beat what Birdsong Cottages has to offer.

Please see the individual unit descriptions with photographs below, to assist you with your choice.

TAKE NOTE

Birdsong Cottages is located in a bushveld surrounding with various free roaming small game and cattle. Guests are cautioned not to interact with these animals. Although our units are kept free from insects, guests are advised that they may appear around our cottages because of our location.

Access to Birdsong Cottages is via an 8km dirt road. The self-catering units are located at various positions on the farm and are also accessible via dirt roads. There is no cell phone signal at Birdsong Cottages.

We do allow children but take note that access to certain units are via a large staircase without a railing. Parents are warned to please not let their children roam around the property without supervision as we also have ponds and rock formations that are not safe for children.

The Lovebird unit, a thatch-covered stone cottage converted from a chapel built at the Uitkyk, is a romantic 1 bedroom unit with private bathroom, open plan living and dining area with kitchenette, deck and sparkling splash pool overlooking the valley below. With its perfect position overlooking the rich tree life of Birdsong Cottages, Lovebird is conveniently located on the upper level of the property close to the Flycatcher Villa and Sunbird cottages. Parking is next to the reception. Access to the cottage is via a steep staircase and guests who book this unit need to note that the stairs may be problematic for guests who have problems climbing stairs or elderly and disabled guests. However, once at the front door of this gorgeous stone cottage, the entire unit is on one level, and the open plan living / dining area opens up onto a wooden deck with splash pool and breath-taking views. There is a cosy boma leading off from the deck via a short staircase. An evening beside a roaring fire in the bush can be quite romantic, especially since this unit only sleeps two guests. A comfortable bedroom with king sized four-poster bed is centred in the room with windows on either side, giving it a spacious atmosphere with plenty of light. The private bathroom leads off from the main bedroom and has a shower, toilet and basin. Please note that the unit does have a gas geyser.
