“Home stay shaka's rock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

I couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The hostel is located right near the sea, surf lessons are offered. Diner and drinks are optional. The super friendly owners are always there to help you out and make you feel right at home.

That the most friendly welcome i never had. Charlie and Diane are lovely. The place is really nice and perfectly located, 5 minute by car from the bach and the surf spot. The atmospher is warm. I really enjoyed my stay in the secret spot

Great place in a beautiful location, very close to the beach with warm, generous hosts. Like the atmosphere, the accommodations are simple and laid back, in the best kind of way. And everything was clean and tidy. I was there by myself, but it didn't feel that way. Charles and Diane quite literally welcomed me into their own home. They only recently took over the property, so ignore all of the negative reviews. The new management has transformed The Secret Spot into a little piece of heaven. It's a wonderful place to stay. And if you want to learn to surf, be sure to sign up for a lesson! I can't wait to go back.
