Lovely guesthouse, lovely people. The best choice in PE. Quiet place near to the beach. Breakfasts are amazing. I told them that I cannot eat dairy products and they buy for me milk and butter without lactouse.

Once we sorted out the various keys and access arrangements we quickly settled into our room (a renovated garage apparently), which was a little dark and not particularly spacious with an extra bed squeezed in, but it was immaculate and perfectly adequate. The staff made us feel very personally welcome and provide great advice on things to do and places...

Stephanie & Janine are wonderful hosts - relaxed and welcoming combined with modest efficiency. Having just spent three nights, I shall happily recommend to friends and certainly stay there upon the next visit. Superbly situated in an upmarket residential area, you can't go wrong with Bayside.
