This wonderful guesthouse, run by a local family, is in a great location at the middle of the cliff, 2 mins to the beach. The rooms are super clean, with mosquito nets and hammock outside to relax in the hottest hours. Rooms upstairs are more private but the rooms downstairs are very convenient. Very recommended!

We happened across this place after deciding to just turn up in town! And we couldn't have asked for more! Rooms are spacious and very clean, they provide water as well for the normal price which is a nice little touch! Double bed was large and came with a large mosquito net hung over a frame which meant that it... More

We stayed here for two weeks and had a lovely stay. Calm area and clean rooms with balcony or terrace. Really close to the main tourist street and to the beach down the cliff as well. Mosquito net over beds and western toilet and shower at each room.
