Our first guesthouse in SL, very good. Comfi rooms, beds, every thing was just well organized and very clean. With a pool in the garden, the perfect place just to relax from the flight and stay for a couple of days. We stayed a extra night and also went back at the end of our vacation. Really felt like coming... More

I had been recommended this little treasure by a friend who'd previously stayed here. I'm so glad I followed her advice and booked directly for the first and last nights of my SL trip. Ron and Brenda were exceptionally welcoming hosts, and their delighful B & B ticked all the boxes. A short trip from the airport, in a quiet... More

This is my 5th stay at the Ayubowan, second time for 9 days In a row. I feel some what qualified in providing another review. Many tourists see this place as an over night service and in doing so sell themselves short. Not only are all the facilities and service excellent at the Ayubowan, breakfast, lunches and evening meals are... More

We stayed two nights at the end of our three week trip and this was definitely one of the best accomodations we've had. Ron and Brenda really do their best to make you feel at home and everything, from arrival, room, breakfast onto the departure is done with a very personal touch. They also help with any activity you may... More

I spent two nights in the Ayubowan Guest House in March 2014. It offers very good value for money. I had a lovely, very clean room on the first floor with air conditioning and a nice view over the garden. The bathroom too was spotless. I was able to have an early morning cup of tea and after a lovely... More
