This is one of my favourite places I have ever stayed...ever.
Keswick Island is stunning, the beach is gorgeous and the sea is like a swimming pool.
What's more, guesthouse hosts Brian and Lynne really do make the experience memorable.
On the food front, Brian's breakfasts set you up for a day of utter relaxation (by making you so full you have no option but to retire to the sun lounger) and every mouthful of Lynne's cooking is utterly delicious.
After a hectic year, it was great to feel such a sense of privacy and relaxation. Lynne and Brian are the perfect hosts, getting the (often tricky) balance just right between entertaining and providing a sense of personal space.
A very small negative (just to give a balanced view) was that at the time of year we went there were one or two march flies on the beach. But nothing a generous spray of Bushman's didn't see to and certainly didn't impact on the overall experience. Amazing.
