Make sure you see Lord Monty while there, one of the coolest dogs on the planet. Their breakfast is also a must have, and very muxh worth waking...

This is a lovely, neat, comfortable and well located B&B. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. It also has a gorgeous balcony that has a peak of the sea. We will probably be staying here again soon. i highly recommend this to any family.

We really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Jonathan and Herman cannot do enough for you, including going out to fetch us pizza on our first night, when we were all exhausted from our grueling journey. Monty, the gentle dog, is also pretty cool. The rooms and gardens are lovely and the house is obviously located in an upmarket area....

This is a wonderful guesthouse in quite a posh area whose owners have paid close attention to details. It is within walking distance of the beaches, which was handy for me since I did not have a car.

We had the 2 bedroom apartment for the extra space and so we didn't see the B&B rooms. We paid a small amount extra for breakfast. Ample lounge furniture, DSTV, dining table.
