When you walk into Compass house, your breath gets taken away by the most amazing view of the ocean. It was the perfect place for my boyfriend and I to enjoy our holiday. Such a classy hotel, every detail has been thought and very comfortable. We cant wait to go back .

My wife and I enjoyed three wonderful nights at Compass House for our honeymoon. I highly recommend the property as a well-staffed, peaceful, picturesque, and comfortable getaway for couples on holiday. The scene is set from the moment the door opens to the property. Linda is a wonderful manager who always answers a guest's request with "my pleasure" and goes... More

We stayed in a room below the pool level with a private deck that ran more than the length of the room, was dressed with sun lounge chairs, incredibly comfortable day beds, and an incomparable view of the sky and ocean. Each room is very private and you feel like you have the place to yourself, so much so that... More

Excellent B&B at very high standards with beautiful views. More for the romantic type stays. The Jacuzzi is a nice idea but the water is too cold so a bit of waste. Breakfast was very nice but more European style with no hot items to eat - which perhaps given the prize this should be made available

"Boutique Hotel" suggests an independent, 20-50 bedroomed hotel, probably in a landmark building, with individual designer attention to each bedroom. "5-Star" suggests 24-hr room service, a signature restaurant, and a gym, amongst other services. "5-Star Boutique Hotel" suggests designer intimacy associated with somewhere like Anouska Hempel's "Blakes", in Kensington, London. All this establishment emulates is the international pricing one would... More
