We arrived in the afternoon and was welcomed by Jockel. We had a normal room and the family cottage.
The house is really decorated with attention to detail, a fruit bowl, nice wine selection, sherry for aperitif (this is based on a honesty bar principle) and with so few rooms you really feel like making yourself at home in the sitting room!
I just love the feeling of warm wooden floors, white linen and dark wood used throughout the guesthouse. All rooms had tea/coffee facilities, flat screen TV with variety of programs, hair dryers and luxury towels and down duvets! A honesty bar is conveniently located upstairs in the corridor at the rooms and the prices is very reasonable for snacks and drinks! Some got shower and some a shower inside a bathtub.
The family cottage is the exact opposite with a sea feeling, all whitewashed furniture and big windows. Can comfortably sleep a family of 4 or even 4 adults (2 x Queen beds in separate rooms, sharing a bathroom). Although for small babies, not cot but can be done on request. It's go it's own mini bar, and big bathroom with bath and shower.
All rooms is no smoking, with a smokers area situated outside on the terrace.
Breakfast was exceptional, a variety of continental dishes (cheese, yoghurt, cold meats etc) and warm to order freshly, including pancakes for the children. Coffee was fresh and plenty!
I loved the attention to detail, like a basket with shoe brushes etc shows someone cares. There is also safe parking available on the premises, it is a bit far to walk to the beach but close to town center and a number of restaurants.
Overall, although there is cheaper options available this is quality through and through and definitely worth staying at.
