They made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived and continued to provide an excellent service throughout our stay - we even forgot we were paying guests as they made us feel totally at home and like old friends of theirs. The accommodation was excellent, clean, spacious, well equipped... More

Thank you Martha & Rolly for a superb stay and marvellous hospitality during our much-needed recent break. Great food and fabulous value for money. We appreciated your going the extra mile in helping us with our itinerary. Our room was beautifully appointed with a million dollar view.

From the moment we touched down at Cable bay, which was rather late anyway we were greeted so warmly by the proprietors of the estate. in hindsight it was somewhat serendipitous that we arrived on a full moon night as the, sky was mesmerizing away from all the light pollution and quite high up on top of a hill.

Dear Caela, we could not be happier to learn of the excellent, five star experience you have enjoyed during your stay at the Carneval. It is also nice to learn, that you are doing the Bircher Muesli for yourself. It would be so nice to see you again sometimes. Kind regards Martha More
