We went to Helen's House for the second time and stayed one week there, end of May. Helen is one of the best host you can meet: extremely friendly, she knows Guernsey very well and gave us excellent recommendations about what we can do. For example, thanks to her, we did a Puffin Patrol near Herm and Jettu, where we could see seals and puffins! We also got the best recommendations for food and could buy excellent crabs and lobster.
We could walk to a beautiful beach (Vazon Bay) in minutes from Helen's house, where we could even swim. We enjoyed laying on the beach, always looking different because of the tides and the sky. When we were not on the beach, we could stay in Helen's garden and just enjoy the sun.
We went several time to St Peter port with the bus (it takes about 20-30min, the buses run every 20-30min), and often decided to walk back home to better know the island.
We could use the kitchen, which was extremely convenient and therefore ate in restaurants only 3 times during our stay (9 days).
I am sure that we will go there a third time in a near future :-)
I stayed with Helen a year ago in her beautiful cottage and I have very fond memories of my visit. Not only was Helen a welcoming and open host, her house was charming and the location was perfect. As a solo traveler, I would completely recommend staying here as there's always somebody to chat to at the end of the day. I would love to stay with Helen again, and I look forward to doing so.
