It is such a pity that the owners have sold and going on pension in 2017. They are helpful, friendly and the place is great to stay in, close to the sea and busses running up and down the coast and to the V&A constantly.

The hosts of this establishment are wonderful and the location is literally one house away from the beach. Stunning and I would definitely go back. The only thing that could be better is a bit of maintenance that is required....

Thanks Lindsay. We are very conscious of maintenance. Being 30 meters from the Atlantic Ocean requires constant maintenance. If fact, we are closing on 30 April 2016 and the whole property will be completely revamped.

The owners are the true value of this place. They are very helpful and kind. Delicious, fresh breakfast. They helped me book excursions and arranged travel to and from the airport. Avanti is more like being a guest in someone's home than staying in a hotel, but there is still plenty of privacy. I would stay here again.

While many of the tourist hotels are in the downtown central business district, this guesthouse is in Bantry Bay. I enjoyed staying in a real neighborhood with the added bonus of easy access to the beach and man made tidal pool. The rooms are clean and the wifi works great. The real reason this place is a gem are due...

after a horrible experience in a hotel, we looked on the side from Booking.com, because we did not want to stay there, even not for one night! We saw that they had 1 room left and we called them.
