We were only passing through town so we were looking for a comfortable place for the night. Clemens had made a reservation for us at Christie's Catch, within walking distance. We had a lovely fish dinner. The Cottage B&B is spotless and cozy. The breakfast was exceptional. Clemens and Heidi are perfect hosts. A perfect place for a longer stay.

Their extensive knowledge was helpful to us as we planned an afternoon of sightseeing around Cape St. Francis. Heidi and Clemens were also extremely friendly and kind. We also loved getting to know their very well-behaved and hospitable doggy. Breakfast in the... More

Wonderful three days as guests of the German Guesthouse will always remain in our memory. Beautiful "milloinaires village" seduces to reconsider one's premanent residence. Beautiful, lonely beaches, good restaurants... Very kind, homely atmosphere and cosy rooms. One could feel the warmness and love to details in the way the guesthouse is arranged as well as in the breakfast. Clemens is... More

This B&B is perfect, especially the breakfasts, where the laying of the table really made our day. Not to forget the warmth and helpfulness we experienced from the host family.

We found this place quite by chance so we considered ourselves extremely lucky. The Cottage is on the main road into St. Francis Bay on the right hand side. The rooms were well appointed, modern and very clean. It's located about 400 meters from the main shopping/restaurant area in the village and about 900 meters from the beach. The owners... More

Dear Randal, dear Jackie I must admit that we did not recognize that you brought photos and text into tripadvisor. Only when we started to renew our homepage (2 weekss ago) with links to facebook and tripadvisor we found that The Cottage is already listed in tripadvisor. Thank you very very much for this first introduction. Thank's a lot for... More
