Seems from the other reviews that there is a huge discrepancy depending on the room you get. We were in room 4 which is downstairs, hot and poorly ventilated and looks onto the carpark. If you want some natural light and to open the blinds you have no privacy whatsoever. The decor in this room is also dated. Replacing the granny light with a ceiling fan would make an enormous difference! The bed was very comfortable though and the shower was good.
The guesthouse itself is charming with a lovely view of the water and gorgeous upstairs communal areas with an honesty bar. Breakfast was fantastic. The guesthouse is also situated about a 10 minute drive from town (so it's a little more peaceful in peak season) but directly across from Grotto beach which is beautiful. There is also a tiny child size pool.
Isabel was very sweet and gave us some fabulous food recommendations.
