This place is very close to the beach and to the light house. The view from the room is amazing! The path leading to the place is narrow and not easy to navigate in the dark. The caretakers were very helpful in carrying our baggage from our mini van up the stairs to our room and to the van when... More

This 4-floor white house near the end of the Lighthouse beach was the first location I noticed when I was looking for a place to stay because of the clean exterior of the building. You will enjoy an absolutely mind-blowing view of the lighthouse and the beach from the balcony of your room. You will also benefit of real "cheap... More

Our enjoyable stay at this hotel turned into a nightmare when we received a "noshow" mail from the booking website withing 48 hours of checking out and got charged almost half the amount we paid for a night as the charge for not showing up. We immediately called the hotel and reminded them about it. They immediately remembered us and... More

I really love this house, a nice building with a tiny garden. The location is great as it is just a two minutes walk from the beach promenade, it is set just a little off so you don't have to deal with the crowds as well as sleep early if you'd like to and the view from the first floor... More

We stayed at this beatufully decorated and situatede house for 17 days. We recived the most kind service from a very helpfull staff. The Apartment was cleaned each day, and clean towels every day to. When we arrived we couldn't get the booked room, so instead we got the basement apartment without an extra charge. Great! Exelent roof terrece.

My wife and I spent there 6 days.
