Sunbird House is designed to make the most of the Atlantic breeze so all the rooms are large and the vented ceiling keeps the rooms cool. Minimising the impact that we have on the environment is important, so there are a number of eco friendly features including solar panels, compost toilets and all the furniture has been locally made.
The house is powered by the sun and includes a solar water system that provides tons of hot water for showering. With an average of 6-10 hours of sun a day through the year the system works fantastically well.
The central part of the house is a large, light, open plan, kitchen, dining and living space. The kitchen is fitted out so that you can make tea and coffee and prepare simple meals .
Both bedrooms are ensuite and have a large comfortable double bed, bedside units and a wardrobe. There are also two single beds that can be arranged to suit you.
The ensuites comprise a shower, basin and composting toilet, which are odour free and work brilliantly.
The large veranda is a lovely cool place to sit out and enjoy the colourful garden. It is perfect for watching the amazing number of different birds that visit the area (including the occasional monkey!)
"We have recently returned from a wonderful stay at Sunbird House. It is the perfect African get away, ideal for relaxing in the tropical sunshine and taking in the amazing bird life to be found in The Gambia. Whilst enjoying a morning cup of tea on the veranda you can watch Sunbirds, Parrots and Monkeys in the beautiful gardens that surround the house. It's close proximity to Footsteps Eco Lodge, and the great facilities it has to offer, mean you are never far from an excellent meal or refreshing dip in its freshwater pool, with a kingfisher for companionship. I cannot recommend a stay here more highly."

"We stayed with our family of 4 children (aged 2 to 8) at Sunbird House. From the moment we arrived we fell in love with the house, surrounded by beautiful well-kept garden. The house was very spacious and the ecological toilets worked remarkably well. My wife and I would not doubt to come back in the future!"
