Not often we experienced such a warm welcome as we got from Lynette and Mike who went out of their way to make us feel at home. Situated in a beautiful natural setting, this B&B offers superb views, perfect breakfasts and an instant getaway-feeling. We had a great stay!

Lynette and Mike take care of you: The service at their B & B is just tremendous! They bring you to and fetch you from a fine restaurant where they have booked a table for you. So you can enjoy a glass of wine or two. They do a tour with you down to the beach with a 4x4. Lynette... More

We stayed two days with Mike and Lynette and they went out of their way to make sure that we were looked after and pampered. The breakfast is outstanding and everything was beautifully cared for. We couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Mike and Lynette were great host. They would go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The rooms are very comfortable and the showers are rain shower which you see in over the top spas. They also cook breakfast as you ordered--it tasted great. I would recommend this place for everyone for any occasions.

The perfect place to relax! Room and facilities were excellent - we loved the spa. Mike & Lynette were amazing hosts and we got so much more than we expected. All the extra little things made the stay really special. We would highly recommend this B&B and would love to make it back some time!
