After a long flight from Europe what a pleasure to be welcomed in a such wonderful boutique guesthouse. We especially loved the quietness and the stunning view over the ocean. The owner know how to mix the african lifestyle and his swiss tase for cleaniless and perfection. We will definetly come back to Compass House

This is a new boutique hotel situated on a hill overlooking the Atlantic ocean. It's a few kilometers from downtown and has many restaurants, shops and supermarkets just down the hill.
