Reviewed January 25, 2013

Beautifull old colonial farm house with great vieuws. But the owner manager is strange and intruisive. Made my wife clean the floor, after letting a few sanddrops coming from the beach.(whisch is 8 minutes walt and had tidal pool) Swiched off the airco mains..had to ague to get it back on. Hot water was also suddenly off.("you need hot water??)..etc. No fridge in the room.
Not a real 4 star..there are far better places around for around 1000 rnd.. Half the price would be more fair..And you have to be assertive to deal with the manager Austin

The Guesthouse itself is very pleasant, with nice bedrooms, good breakfast and walking distance to the beach (not really a swimming beach, though, so we ended up driving to other beaches nearby). The lady owner mentioned in the other review was not present, however, and we found the gentlemen manager a bit difficult though, and fairly intrusively present in the "shared" spaces. A pity.

Room Tip: One suite which overlooks the patio has a nice view, but if you sleep late or go to bed early you ca...

The Guesthouse owner, Barbara, is a really gracious lady, keeping a low profile but seeing that everything ticks over as it should. Spotless, bright and airy, with most rooms overlooking a beautful garden to the sea, with double doors onto your own private patio. It is an easy downhill walk to the warm water beach..a bit of a steep one back. There are also self-catering facilities if required and Barbara will make anything possible for you without a fuss. Spotless white linen is the benchmark of this 4* establishment, and a scruptious breakfast served on the patio, to eat at your leasure while gazing at the sea, will leave you satisfied & relaxed.

Room Tip: Sea facing with the doors opening onto your private patio.
