Thank you for the great service. We really enjoyed our stay, the view, the friendliness, the breakfast, the freedom to do our one thing every knight, the use of your kitchen. Everything was awesome will really promote you guys to Patio for all our staff to stay with you on our trips. Hope to see you next year.

Lovely apartment with great views of the ships in the bay, Very good beds and linen and a perfect little kitchenette. Nice extras are given, free of charge (hairdryers, cereal) Very well appointed and all fixtures and fittings are good. Perfect stay :-)

The guest house is nicely situated with a Food view, the room was spacious and clean, owner and staff very friendly, and the breakfast very, very good. Reading facilities, however, are poor; lamps near the armchairs and at the balcony would help.

Lovely place - we stayed in one of their self-catering units and it had everything we needed. The room is big and light, the bed was very comfortable. Biggest pro is the hosts - they are so very friendly and helpful. A few minor cons for me was that there is no table on the balcony, so you could eat... More

Thank you for the feedback. We always like to have a response from guests. With regards some items you mention - there is a small table in the suite that doubles as a balcony table, we encourage guests to use it as such, so apologies if this was not clarified. The bathroom smell as eliminated as soon as it was... More
