We stayed in the suitably appointed Oyster room for two, which had a very large bedroom and even a ceiling fan. There included a large bathroom with shower cubicle and a small seating / utility area. There was a private, sunny deck overlooking the sea and the property has direct access to a coastal path. Otters and dolphins and other...

Great hospitality, a wonderful view and beautiful rooms made my stay here really a big big pleasure! Thanks a lot! The rooms are facing right towards the ocean. The sound of the waves is better than any orchestra. A very good restaurant is in walking distance, as well as a supermarket.

Stayed at Sea Notes for one night-will be back soon.Absolutely the best ever-Robyn went out of her way to make us feel at home-home baked rusks-what more could one ask for. Sitting on the deck watching the sun set was unbelievable.Highly recommended. Robyn-you are truly one in a million (and the dogs are soooo friendly)

I took my parents to stay at the Seaweed cottage (self-contained) from 12th-16th December. The most spectacular thing about this cottage is the magnificent panoramic view. Our best memories are sitting on the porch having breakfast/lunch/supper watching the ever-changing sea. We saw large pods of dolphins twice. Our hostess (Robyn) was excellent in terms of attentiveness and recommendations of where...

Stayed in Seaweed cottage, which overlooks a stunning rocky coastline. The cottage was perfect for a family of five, with shopping facilities close by. I can't decide which was more amazing: the sea views and the dolphins, or Robyn Evans, our hostess. A truly gracious, helpful and charming lady. Full of stories and recommendations, she was brilliant with our kids....

I needed some down time and being young woman on my own, i was in search of a secure place where i could spend some solo time without worrying about my safety. Not only was Sea Notes a secure place but its situation in Seaview, just above some rock pools, offered a breath taking view. I will never forget sitting...

We spent three nights at Seaweed cottage. It is well equipped and spacious with a magnificent view of the ocean from all rooms. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean and waking up each morning to dolphins swimming past, really makes it the perfect getaway spot.

Sitting on the terass with the ocean waves tumbling in and watching the dolphines play is absolutly awesome. Seanotes is an outstanding place to be at, clean fresh and nice. Robyn, the hostess, does everything in her power to make you feel like home. Despite that I would like to have it as my personal secret heaven, I have to...
