A stay at the Casa del Mare is less like staying in a B&B and more like staying in a beautiful boutique hotel. De'arne's taste in home furnishing and decor is fantastic there are loads of wonderful little touches throughout the house and this is carried through to the guest experience with personalised name cards on the bedside tables.
The bedroom suite is soooo comfortable (I need those pillows!!!) and there is a fab bathroom. The guest area is also well appointed with a large tv area complete with dvd's to enjoy and a very well stocked tea and coffee facility. There is also a great outdoor area which looked stunning (unfortunately we were hit by bad weather the day we stayed so we were unable to enjoy it to it's potential...but never mind there is always next time...and there will be a next time!!!).
Breakfast was also a delight, with loads of choice and delicious homemade jam which you enjoy whilst gazing out to the ocean (even the bad weather didn't harm the view, the waves were just crashing a little louder).
Finally, I can't finish this review without mentioning Roxie (the family cat), even if your not a cat person you can't help but fall for her charms. She is possibly one of the cutest animals I've ever seen and very placid.
We will definitely be returning to the Casa del mare and dining at Bluebiyou again, a great recommendation by De'arne.
