On arrival, we were met by Helen, who made us feel at home immediately, completing the paperwork... More

After staying in the bush we looked for a place close to the airport for easy continuing our holiday. We found Ocean View and were happy with a very comfortable room. We met really nice people, enjoyed a delicious breaktfast and a good view to the ocean. It is a beautiful place to stay and relax!

Excellent value (very spacious for a B&B as 2 of their units have a kitchenette & lounge area), great sea views away from the hustle & bustle of the village.

One of the best, if not the best, guesthouse we have stayed in. Lovely sea-views. Spotless. Secure parking on site The double rooms have a separate lounge/kitchenette. Helen's breakfast is to die for. Healthy and a full English Breakfast Service out of this world.
