I spent two weeks at Splash and I enjoyed my stay. All the amenities are right at the door with lots of shops and the beach is 10 minutes away. Great stay and James and staff are attentive to your needs.

We enjoyed our stay at splash guest house. It offered us privacy; luxury and we felt so special. I will definately use this guest house again when I visit PE. The owners were hands on which is what I like the most. Will definately recommend it to someone who is looking for a quite place.

I booked Splash Guest House as a low-cost resting stop after an overnight flight from Perth WA, and did not expect more. I was wrong. The Guest House - rooms, cleanliness, facilities etc. - was superb and the welcome and help from James, the owner, was everything we could hope for and more than we expected. If we had not already booked the rest of our trip we would have stayed there for a few days more.

It was a great experience, I must say we were both surprised with the comfort and convenience. Clean and well maintained! Definitely using it on our next trip to PE! This was my 15th trip in the year and this was the first I truly felt at home (away from home), if you are a travelling business man this counts for a lot. The free wi-fi was an added bonus. Simply stunning.

Our family of 5 stayed 1 night in December 2012. It is a converted suburban house literally a block away from the beachfront. What I loved was the neatness, convenient location to amenities, the immaculate bed-linen and the quiet surroundings. The only suggestion to the helpful owner is to see to mold on the ceiling of the shower...........a common problem near the sea.

I will definitely return when In am back in PE.

Thanks Shirin!

Yes the mould is a problem at the coast as we have to paint regularly to fix it. I'm still looking for a more permanent solution, but it seems as if regular painting is the only answer. The only problem is the paint smell, which lingers for a few days. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, as I hope to see you again soon!
