What a great place to stay! The back of the property faces the ocean, with only one row of houses in front. Hence, you are around the corner from the beach. The pictures don't really do it justice.. Bedrooms on the ground floor open out into the garden with a pool.. Some of the bedrooms on the second floor open... More

This place is a little gem ideally located within close proximity to the beautiful local beach. I had a room with a picturesque view of the ocean and I could hear it too. The cleanliness stood out for me and the staff were very hospitable. Overall, this was very good value for money.

Room was neat and clean. Too small and no place to put your suitcase but on the floor. The towels one white (medium size) and one sand... More

This is by far the worst B&B I have ever stayed in. Everything seemed to be too much effort. Upon arriving, one of my questions was what the wifi code was. As an answer I got a cranky "Look in the map". Breakfast is served between 6:30 and 8:30. When you're on vacation, who wants to have breakfast at 6:30?... More
