Once again we felt very comfortable in the Rising Sun. The accommodation is very quiet and ideally located. The rooms are big and tidy. Breakfast is good and perfectly adequate. Dinner is a highlight for us every time. Excellent with fresh fish and more than enough. The host family is extremely helpful and very friendly. We look forward to the next visit.

The guesthouse is a little bit far from a yetty (20-25 min away), but close to Union Estate and famous Anse Source d' Argent beach. My room was clean and specious, with fridge, AC and TV. I booked half-board and enjoyed local food for dinner (mainly fish, rice, curry and desert). Breakfast was also nice, juice, eggs at your choice, fruit platter, jam and toast and coffee / tea. The only "misunderstanding" was at arrival - namely I booked it directly via guesthouse webpage (half being "paid" by CC in advance and remaining part at the property"). However, they asked the full amount to be paid at the property - preferable in cash - as they did not charge my CC (it was only guarantee in a case of no-show - although it was nowhere saying so). When I was assured that my CC will not be charged, I paid the whole due amount in cash.

We arrived early around 11 AM & the room wasn't ready but they had it ready for us by about 11:30, very nice. For us, it was a 15 minute walk from the ferry with rolling luggage. We had a standard room facing the road & morning sun, nice. Few large vehicles so generally quiet, roosters do give a chorus or two at 4 & 5 in the morning. Patio with 2 cushioned chairs & drying rack. Queen & twin bed in room, fridge, kettle, coffee, TV (one English movie, couple other English channels & other language channels), Wi-fi was usually good, A/C, fan, shower, good black out curtains, safe, wardrobe & small desk with chair. They also rent bicycles. There is a grassed area with chairs & table for sitting, reading, having a drink which was nice at the end of the day or for having a coffee in the morning, sitting & listening to the birds. Breakfast was a choice of eggs cooked 3 ways, toast, butter, cheese, fruit, fruit juice, tea/coffee. It was the “same” breakfast everyday but the fruit & bread might be different. Also the eggs were well prepared to your request, enjoyed everyday. There is a Take Away place next door (Gala) & another nice one on the way to the Jetty, Julia's. Also 3 stores < 5 min walk away. This GH is a 5-10 minute walk to the closest beaches on the way to Anse D'Argent (115 rupee entry fee) and Anse Severe is <30 minute walk. We preferred Anse Severe. Met a German couple who have stayed there 5 times over the years. We liked this GH, friendly staff, very organzied nice breakfast & could stay again if in the area.

We stayed at Rising Sun Guesthouse for 4 nights. We made booking via expedia and there were no problems. Guesthouse is located coca. 20 min walking distance from jetty, approx. 300 m from the beach (Anse Reunion) and approx. 100 m from Gala Takeaway (!!!), markets, school and church. Room (Standard room for 3 Persons) was dally cleaned and had a terrace with garden view and good room WIFI. Breakfast (Local fruits, eggs, bread, butter, jam, coffee, ...) was very good. They offer also diner which we didn't tasted. The family and stuff are helpful and friendly who gave us a lot of info’s. In guesthouse you can rent a bike (100 scr/day) or book a different island trip. They helped us to rent a car on Praslin and Mahe (All was OK). Thanks for all help and nice time on La Digue. If we return to La Digue, we will choose this guest house again. ANI
