Lovebird

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.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why do I have to pay a deposit?

    This is a sign of good faith. Properties hold rooms for you, which they could sell to someone else, so if you don't turn up, they lose revenue. By paying a deposit of 50% (industry standard) you show the property that you are intending to arrive and they will accordingly turn others away.

    Can I pay the deposit at month end?

    That depends on the property. Many have real time booking calendars, allowing people to book instantly online. If that's the case, bookings are first-come-first-book, and no rooms will be held provisionally unless specifically arranged. Send a request and ask for a specific payment date and they'll get back to you.

    What is 3D Secure?

    This is a security layer which checks that the person making the payment is the authorised cardholder by way of a one-time pin delivered by SMS or a secret code, ensuring the safety of your card.

    3D secure is a legislated prerequisite for all online purchases in South Africa.
