About Bird's Haven

Bird’s Haven offers you a pleasant stay on a small holding farm in the town of Philippolis. Enjoy the quietness and the history that this unique town has to offer. This is an ideal stopover on the way from Johannesburg or Bloemfontein to Cape Town. Your hosts Annelie and Louis are looking forward having you around and will spoil you that you will see Bird's Haven as your second home.

Bird’s Haven offers accommodation for up to a total of eight guests in three unique rooms. Each air-conditioned room has its own individual entrance, a shower en suite, and a kettle.

Enjoy leisure moments at the lapa area with a braai facility and a ‘plaas’ farm dam to cool down on very hot summer days. Don't miss out the nights filled with the brightness with stars. Children especially will enjoy all the different kind of farm animals. There is off-street parking, and plenty of water as the farm is secured with its own water supply.

Our scenery, friendly hosts and delicious meals are sure to turn your stay into a tantalising experience, to return again year after year.

I would like an air conditioner installed. Although it was not hot, in summer it will be essential.

Beautiful little town. Annelie was so friendly and helpful when we changed our booking last minute. We arrived late at night and it was no problem. Loved the farmstyle feeling, and beautiful rooms.. I really wish that someday I would be able to visit again. I

The room had been cooled for us on our arrival in the midday heat. Everything was super clean and the decor and bedding was fantastic. Anneline went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

The guesthouse itself was comfortable , clean and the owners very friendly. The town however was a huge disappointment and not worth visiting as it is deteriorating to a ghost town.

This was a one night stop over but we really enjoyed our stay there. The room was big with beautiful furnishings and a very welcome Aircon. Don't leave this place before you do start gazing at midnight and drank a beer at the local pub in the main street. Our host was also very accommodating and friendly. Highly recommended!
