    Really loved staying at this particular Guest House. Hilary and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was beautifully decorated, clean and well equipped. Loved our little balcony overlooking the pool.

    Best guest house when it comes to management, vibrant, eager to please, where to dine etc. Hillary the manager took a personal interest in setting up for an impromptu business meeting that I hosted at the guest house. The monkeys even behaved themselves !
