          We booked this place as it is the closest to where the white shark diving starts. The owner is super friendly and helpful, we felt like home! Very good breakfast. In addition, there is a kitchen which can be used at anytime. Free parking included.

          We arrived late- that was no problem at all. The room was dry good, bed was excellent. Had very good advise and help to book trips on the next day. Very good breakfast, ask for the cheese sausage and Omelette ;-)
