“Relaxing, tranquil and outmost charming spot. A home away from home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2011

We were treated wonderfully. Ralph and Ricky, the owners, were most welcoming and flexible when it came to our needs. Traveling with a 1 year old baby can be quite stressful, but the Mariu Guest House provided us with two wonderful rooms, extra bedding for the baby and were continuously helpful.
The rooms offer a tranquil ambiance, inspired by Eastern interiors, with small terraces where we would have our wine whilst watching the sunset and the rain pour down from above. Ralph would always bring enough wine glasses, and plates and cutlery for the cheeses we bought.
The location is quiet and we were surrounded by a lot of green.
The breakfast is served at your doorstep, where we sat and ate on the terrace. The second day, the weather was miserable and it would not stop raining. Ralph and Ricky offered us their own home, where a table was beautifully set up and as we ate, the baby was entertained by the cute yorkshire terriers walking around.

Overall, a wonderful experience and relaxing home away from home!
