    This little guesthouse is a hidden treasure. Cosy welcoming and surrounded by harbour and seas. The surrounding environment is nature's beauty. Huge mountains to view and greenery for miles. The ideal getaway for tranquillity.

    Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for a night recently, and we had such a nice time! Room was great, and so was breakfast in the morning. Only a minutes walk from the centre as well which is ideal. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, highly recommend.
