The accommodation is beautiful, best views in the bay, whale watching already during breakfast. The rooms are very clean, the house is furnished with great attention to detail. There is a fantastically relaxed rest, so that you can hear breathing on the balcony of the whales. The owners are very open-minded, super knowledgeable and very likeable host. We felt immediately...

Wonderful guesthouse, directly facing the sea. Whale watching from your patio! The hosts are charming and very kind. They arranged our whale watching trip and booked local restaurants for us. Their attention to detail is second to none. We had a very comfortable stay in their stylish home - one of the highlights of our holiday.

The whole house including the guestrooms is tastefully furnished and in very good condition. The athmosphere is friendly, you feel like at home. Thank you, Gerhard & Shalene, for your hospitality and friendliness. We'll hopefully be back next year!

From the moment we arrived, everything was absolutely top-level - Shalene and Gerhard, hosts par excellence, spotless rooms, the whole house a treasure trove of arty and interesting things, the view as close to spiritual as can be, and sipping wine on the balcony could as well have made visitors to Monaco green with envy.
