This place is run by a very friendly mother and son team.
They go to great lengths to make you feel comfortable and get the most out of your stay. Norma even drove us around for a tour of the local area in her car one day. They also gave good recommendations for dinner in the town.
They have a sunken trampoline in the garden which the kids adored.
The rooms are cute and comfortable.
There premises is surrounded by fencing and a security system and the rooms have lockable gates internally to the doors onto the veranda - all this could either make you feel reassured and safe or a bit nervous and paranoid depending on how you look at it!
The pool was pleasant enough - a little cool for me but the kids certainly enjoyed it.
Great views from all the bedrooms. We had two little rooms downstairs which were almost adjoining - plus sole use of the downstairs bathroom (not ensuite).
Nice plentiful breakfast served on the veranda each morning with cereals and fruit, as well as freshly cooked bacon, eggs, sausage etc on offer.
This is a guesthouse within a family home, and as such you do feel almost part of the family.
