Sunbird Cottage home swap

We have a have a home situated in the leafy green country suburb of Noordhoek, about 40 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.
Sunbird Cottage is a homely but spacious home, situated on about 1000m2 and has a solar heated indoor pool in the garden and a protected patio and braai area. We also have a viewing deck upstairs with views over False Bay. The main house has a bedroom upstairs with an en suite bathroom and a further bedroom and bathroom can be found downstairs. The 3rd bedroom is situated in the completely seperate flatlet in the garden and this has its own kitchen area as well as a large bathroom complete with shower and spa bath. It would therefore be suitable for 3 couples and would allow each couple their privacy.

We are in a private security estate which is peaceful and our garden in particular is full of trees and has a wonderful array of birdlife, from Sugar birds, to white eyes and Red collared sunbirds.
