very warm welcome and advice offered on what to do and where to eat. All done in a friendly way rather than as a series of instructions. Fabulous view from the bedroom in fact the whole property. I felt nothing was too much trouble

Spent the weekend at this charming and beautiful guest house. Cornell and Kevin are really wonderful hosts. They go the extra mile in EVERYTHING that they do for you. The rooms are all beautifully decorated and cater for your every need. The perfect home away from home, relaxed environment. Thanks for your kind efforts, we will be back.

The hotel is located a short driving distance away from the centre of town. The rooms are clean and quaintly decorated. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room had an amazing view of the lagoon. Highly recommended if you travel by car.

Everything was great! 눇The service we received from Kevin and Cornell and their gracious hospitality was so delightful. The beds are luscious and dreamy. We came back each evening to strawberries accompanied by a sweet treat, and a delicious glass of Sherry and found our beds turned down.

One couldn't ask for a lovelier place to stay. Our hosts were hospitable and could not do enough for us. The accommodations were comfortable,charming and upscale. The whole lodging reeks of taste and style. The views are amazing and even the garden room was delightful. By the way the breakfasts were terrific.
