A perfect Bed & Breakfast, the place, the owners, the view, the breakfast. It was the third time that we slept in Thanda Vista and certainly not the last time. A perfect place to stay for a lot of days.

We thank J.P. and his wife for the fantastice service, the great breakfast and all
valuable recommendations.
Everything is great at Thanda Vista. The only but very little bad aspect are the relatively small rooms. But thats really negligible.

There was a very warm welcome from the hosts. Room was very comfortable with good amenities. There was also an enjoyable breakfast. The host was very informative regarding places to visit around the area and gave a recommendation for an excellent restaurant.

JP was the perfect host offering real attention to detail. The view from his rooftop terrace was most relaxing. Sumptuous breakfast cooked to order. Recommended the Lemon Grass restaurant for dinner, which proved to be a good choice.
Bedrooms were a bit on the small side, particularly if travelling with two large suitcases.
Ample parking. Ignore swimming pool rating.

We really enjoyed our stay here. There is so much more to do in the area than we actually had time for. JP the owner of Thanda Vista was an absolute gentlemen, upon arrival he gave us a personal welcome and took the time to give us an introduction to the area and with things to do in and around the bay. The view from our room and the breakfast area was superb, especially from the rooftop terrace. We would definitely recommend to others to stay and spend a few days here.
