Stayed here on our honeymoon. Vivienne, the owner, and her husband could not have been nicer or more helpful. The house is spectacular and the views are breathtaking! All staff are lovely and accommodate your every request. To sum up, this is about as good as a guest house can get!

I cannot recommend this guesthouse enough. Viv's hospitality was amazing, phoning and booking everything from taxis to day trips to restaurants, and sharing tips for the local area. The sunning deck and views were stunning, and the architecture is lush. Go!
