The breakfast was amazing, although we couldn't finish it all. Amanda was the perfect host. The only thing was late night traffic on the road in front as we had a... More

Wow, what a gorgeous guest-house this is! We were blown away by its exquisite & tasteful furnishings, its huge & super-comfortable rooms, & the fabulous location, affording uninterrupted views of the sea! We liked that there was filter coffee in the rooms, & appreciated the bedtime imported chocolate on the pillow! The property is also very convenient for mobility-impaired guests.... More

I had a downstairs room with easy access to the car, the beach and great views. There are better views from the first floor where there is a very cosy... More

We were greeted with a welcome drink and helped with a reservation for dinner, which was excellent. So was the breakfast in the B&B the next morning after a nice walk on the beach which was only 10 meters away!
