    A great find. Clean, comfortable and secure. It's position is very good. First thing we did was take a walk on the Promenade. It also has secure parking. A very classy B&B with well trained staff. Breakfast was good too with some nice choices.

    Fantastic guesthouse, very close to the beach and to the hotel where our conference was. The staff is extremely friendly and discrete. Breakfast is really good. In winter rooms may be fresh but the electric plate makes a good job. Highly recommended.

    Spent 2 nights here again for business. The B&B is within walking distance to The Boardwalk. Winston who was managing the place, wore many hats and still managed to do an excellent job. He has the perfect personality and great work ethic.
