We recently spent two nights at Selkirk House with our adult children. The house is huge and we were the only guests. We were visiting local friends so there wasn't much that Eva the host needed to arrange for us but we had no doubt she would have done if required. Very attentive and welcoming the house is beautiful rooms... More

This was our third time back in 2 years. Again we were a party of 5 and felt totally spoilt by Ina in every way. Nothing seems too much for her to make her guests feel comfortable. We all love the fact that the house is quiet, one of the many reasons we agreed on to go back to Selkirk... More

A very clean and nicely decorated guest house, yet a bit too quiet for our taste. After standing outside for quite a while, buzzing the door bell and honking the horn of our car, we were greeted and felt welcome. However, we didn't really get a full presentation of the property and services and as soon as we had any... More

Ina was a fantastic hostess! As we arrived, she was waiting for us and could tell we were looking for some relaxation. She ushered us to the pool area and offered us some wine from her cellar. The pool and fountain were so relaxing, and before we knew it, it was time for the dinner Ina arranged for us in... More

everything was at five stars hotel level. You need to have a car since the location is a little bit outside the city centre. If you arrive and don't see anybody around, don't worry they (the staff) will appear very soon.

Selkirk House provided the best accommodation for us, thanks to its location in a calm area, the very comfortable room with a fantastic view of the ocean, the rooftop terrace for stars view, the rich breakfast, and warm attention of the owners. Eccellent rating!

We had a splendid stay at Selkirk. It is a very atmospheric B&B with an caring manager Ina. She made our stay very comfortable and welcoming. She booked good restaurants and made a very good breakfast. The most important meal of the day. Throughout an place to come back.

We were not excited to be booking accommodation so far from the beachfront, but honestly their is nothing to worry about. The accommodation is excellent and great service, highly recommended. We would love to come back and stay again.
