We were only passing through town so we were looking for a comfortable place for the night. Clemens had made a reservation for us at Christie's Catch, within walking distance. We had a lovely fish dinner. The Cottage B&B is spotless and cozy. The breakfast was exceptional. Clemens and Heidi are perfect hosts. A perfect place for a longer stay.

Heidi and Clemens provided us with an extremely clean, well appointed room in their cozy and comfortable B&B. Their extensive knowledge was helpful to us as we planned an afternoon of sightseeing around Cape St. Francis. Heidi and Clemens were also extremely friendly and kind. We also loved getting to know their very well-behaved and hospitable doggy. Breakfast in the...

Wonderful three days as guests of the German Guesthouse will always remain in our memory. Beautiful "milloinaires village" seduces to reconsider one's premanent residence. Beautiful, lonely beaches, good restaurants... Very kind, homely atmosphere and cosy rooms. One could feel the warmness and love to details in the way the guesthouse is arranged as well as in the breakfast. Clemens is...

This B&B is perfect, especially the breakfasts, where the laying of the table really made our day. Not to forget the warmth and helpfulness we experienced from the host family.

We found this place quite by chance so we considered ourselves extremely lucky. The Cottage is on the main road into St. Francis Bay on the right hand side. The rooms were well appointed, modern and very clean. It's located about 400 meters from the main shopping/restaurant area in the village and about 900 meters from the beach. The owners...
