This is a real 5 star establishment in all respects. Service, food, location, views. Breakfast is a real treat . The care and attention to detail throughout is of the highest order. Linda and Ole are perfect hosts which made our stay even more special. We will be back!!

A good quality place to stay - enlivened by an unexpected visit by local musicians who completely entertained us royally. Linda and Ole were delightful - and a great source for local information as well as 'brie building'!

This is a charming B&B with beautifully appointed rooms, all with fabulous view of the bay. Linda & Ollie were very welcoming & gave us great suggestions for dinner spots. Breakfasts were delicious & served out on the terrace, taking full advantage of the view.
