We stayed 2 nights at this lovely guest house and wish we'd booked for longer.The garden and pool area were lovely, and the veranda was the perfect spot for star gazing.The little bar was so quaint and we enjoyed being able to sit out with a drink at the end of a busy day.Very helpful and friendly hosts too.
