We had the greatest time. Accomodation is five star. Went for a dog show and decided that this venue definitely has to be our next holiday accomodation. All amenities are top class and the hostess fabulous. Would recommend this to all, try it and you will be back.

A really well run guest house with spacious rooms, well maintained and with stunning views. The perfect place to relax away from the city. But what sets this establishment apart from other guest houses is the warm and friendly welcome that awaits you. Give it a try, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

we stayed there for only one night on the 31st of December 2011, and it was beyond awesome, I have stayed in a few guest houses before but must say this is one I enjoyed the most, they really go out of their way to make you feel welcome! Working in the tourism industry I would recommend it to any-one.

Review by: Heidi Peters, Pretoria (stayed: December 2011) I stayed over in October for a conference happening in PE and was pleasantly surprised by Elaine's hospitality. It was a breath of fresh air and seeing dolphins and a whale while there was an added bonus. Even though it was just a short stay I felt at peace and at 'home'.... More

It was nice to spend our last few days overlooking the ocean before returning to the manicness in London. Rooms were very clean and very light, beautiful views, and Elaine could not have been more helpful and friendly. Would recommend this place without hesitation.

You could not wish for better GH accommodation, beautifully presented, clean and very spacous.Uninterupted view across the ocean, the only sound heard was the waves breaking on the rocks. Elaine the owner could not do enough for us and made our stay a wonderful experience. Would definitly return
