We had a great stay at A1K. The neighbourhood is friendly and save. The house is open and we enjoyed our privacy at the same time. The breakfst was good also. The location is close to "downtown" and we enjoyed the views to the sea from our deck. Cosy room!

The place is situated in a good area and its quiet. Looking forward to come again and stay more days. The only problem we experience was the bed, it was very hard next day you feel tired.The breakfast was very good and owner is very friendly.

We went to this B&B because we had problems elsewhere. In retrospect the best move we did! The host Sharon is a true B&B pioneer with more then 30 years of experience. And you can tell: this B&B gives a homely feel on the other side of the world. There are home baked cookies and the croissants and muffins for... More

A warm hearted welcome made us feel home immediately. We have been pleasantly surprised to have a room with a beautiful sea view and the home baked biscuits just gave that final touch. We woke up to an awesome breakfast which catered for all tastebuds. Thank you for adding value to our holiday! Happy Denham family

Since you keep asking, here are my suggestions: The closet cupboard was damp and we were reluctant to hang our clothes. You could have a stool to put suitcases on. Otherwise, very good. Ran out of space

I booked a ground floor room without breakfast. Instead of that we were put into a huge upstairs room – more like a suite – with a great view of the ocean. In the kitchenette was the basics for making instant coffee and tea, and a generous bag of home-style cookies. In the morning, we had breakfast delivered, an unexpected... More
