Amazing place to stay. Quiet, comfortable and hospitable. Steve, collin and Bonnie hosted us wonderfully. Also, thanks to claudia and leslie for the wonderful breakfasts. Wonderful place for family vacation. We were allowed to use the kitchen also, which was really nice on part of the hosts.

Excellent prices at this 5 star guesthouse from 1 May onwards. We were upgraded to a de luxe room with quality finishings and a pool right outside our front door. Breakfast was very good and staff and owners helpful and friendly.
