4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2009

This is a superb guest house with attentive and friendly host JP and his wife. They could not do enough with recommendations for places to go, restaurant and taxi reservations and generally making sure everything was in order.
If I had one criticism it would be our room was perhaps a little on the small side but that did not detract from our enjoyment of the establishment.
The breakfasts are superb and JP, although he doesn't do the cooking obviously takes a great pride in the presentation.
The location is about five minutes drive from the centre of town and a short drive to a local shopping centre with amongst other things a supermarket. The nearest beach is about five minutes walk, although it is a beach without any other facilities.
All in all good place to stay and one I would thoroughly recommend.

  • Liked — The hosts, the view and the breakfasts.

I had a delightful stay with JP and Petro at Thanda Vista Guesthouse. Stunning views of the ocean and mountains. Warm, friendly and personal attention received from my hosts and the breakfasts were exceptional!

We found this guesthouse offers excellent accommodation with a very warm and homely atmosphere. The interior is of impecable taste and one gets a feeling of warmth and friendliness. The hosts are exceptionally caring and excell at giving personal attention.

This is truly top accommodation and a real home away from home.

Highly recommended.
