testimonial

It is very opulent for a beach house but nothing is done at the expense of comfort. When you’re lying on a lounger waiting for another whale to lobtail while sipping a fine Sauvignon, you can’t help but conclude that Birkenhead House is one of Africa’s finest beachfront hotels. The hotel, perched on a raised promontory that juts out between two beach coves, has the best location and flawless service.
