We had an amazing time at Bayside. The place is truly beautiful and exactly what was promised on the website. The staff were amazing and made our stay a pleasant one and we really enjoyed the breakfast every morning. The location is great and we would definitely comw back to Bayside

If you arrive by plane this guesthouse is easy to find only a few minutes from the airport. The owners are friendly and helpful and live on site. Our room although a bit warm was very well equipped and looked out onto the pool and garden. There was secure parking. The receptionist not only recommended a restaurant for our evening... More

Had a good chat with the owners, Stephanie and Clifford who are lovely people. They recommended a couple of places to eat which was nice. We decided on Charlie's nearby which was more informal than some and just... More

We gladly recommend this B&B: very good location only two streets from beach in high-class neighborhood. Very friendly hosts, great breakfast. We shared two rooms as a family of four with connecting doors that were lovely furnished. Very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Close to shopping-mall and restaurants only minutes away by car.
