It is a pleasure to return to this lovely Guest House. It is situated in a quiet location. The rooms are well appointed and have a beautiful view of the lagoon. The breakfast is generous and delicious. Recommended!

Beds were terrible, Felt like hammock. Slept so badly. Eventually had to lie across the bed to give our backs the support. Also very noisy from the traffic. Breakfast was good with good service. Had to wait 5 minutes at reception for receptionist.

We enjoyed our stay. It is a peaceful to relax away from the hustle in the town centre. The family unit was very spacious and comfortable, all that was missing was air conditioning. It was too hot to sleep well and we had chickens right next door which woke us up before the sun came up. The breakfast was good...

Great view from the balcony of the room. Rooms are nice and tidy with wifi that works. Very nice selection of breakfast options in the morning and everything is fresh. Staff is a little uptight, feels more like a hotel than a guesthouse. Also bring own pillows.

We stayed at Overmeer Guest House for two nights. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast was really nice, with lots of different types of bread and spreads. All that was missing, was that the staff were very formal, and it felt more like a hotel than a guest house.

This place is in walking distance of shops and restaurants. The owners are really lovely giving ideas and are interested in their guests. Their breakfast is delicious with fresh fruits and self baked bread which is still warm. Rooms are lovely with comfi beds. They also have a nice pool with a beautiful garden surrounding it. Definitely worth to go
