Self-catering Accommodation at Sunbird House

Self-catered Accommodation

Sunbird House is set in its own grounds approximately 150 meters from the main accommodation. All the benefits of Footsteps (bar, restaurant, pool etc.) are just a short stroll away through the gardens, with the added bonus of being independent.

The house is self-contained with its own supply of solar power, hot/cold water, fridge and cooking facilities which means cold drinks whenever you want them and also hot water first thing in the morning when it can be a little chilly. There are two large bedrooms at either end of the house and extra beds are available, so Sunbird House can sleep up to six people with ease.
