Perfect for special occasions! Place is very lovely & homey. Serge the host is super friendly and easy going. Place is in walking distance (ca 500 mtrs) to all the shops and restaurants and also to beach front. Definitely a great place to go to for a special get away. The surrounding nature is stunning, walk trails (bush & ocean)...

Room was way more than we expected - bed was massive, huge bathroom, huge spa. Close to town - an easy walk and close to beaches. Easy parking on site / on the verge - suits people just wanting to relax in one area or people using it for a base to see other areas. Very quite, relaxed and clean.

Spent one night in the accommodation. The host, Serge was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable. Pressure of shower head was impressive and strong enough to relieve our tiredness after a whole day of travel.

This is a review that is long delayed. It is a lovely place. All the rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. The hosts are friendly and breakfast were wonderful. It is also very convenient to walk to the town area where you can find many restaurants and shops serving the town.

Such a pleasure to read that you had a good time during your stay in my little BnB. This is the key to my happiness: making people happy when they chose to stop for a well deserved rest away from work. Thank you so much for the lovely review, it means the world to me. Serge

Serge is a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome for our 2 night stay. The room was spacious and spotless. The bed was the most comfortable we have had on our 10 day trip. I recommend the omelette and the croissant for breakfast. There were lots of 5 star touches like complimentary port and chocolate in the guest...

The service was great with Serge even researching indoor plants for us and having a restaurant list for the area on hand. All the little things made a difference to oyr stay. He was always friendly and well spoken but also left us to our own devices. The food was fantastic and filling!

It was everything you need from a BnB; clean, comfortable, great location and a fantastic breakfast! Serge was very welcoming and had lots of great tips for beaches and wineries. The only downside was that i couldn't stay longer! Thoroughly recommended.
