We were welcomed with champage, friendly service and a fantastic view. This is one of the few places where the place is much much better than the pictures. The food was excellent, 5star, the hospitality offered by David & Leon and the attention to detail - all above our expectations. They will DEFINITELY see us again. I recommend this place...

Dear Ahmad, Thank you for the review. It comes as no surprise, as we expected it from you.

David and Leon were fabulous hosts nothing to much trouble. Breakfast omelette was amazing. Location of the guest house was perfect with fantastic sea views where you can watch dolphins 🐬 play. The only downside was that it is quite secluded, however there is a nice restaurant called Blu near the beach that serves good food. We visited numerous places...

We stayed in a family room with a balcony with a beautiful view over the ocean. The bed was nice and comfortable and everything was immaculate and clean. The lock-up garage with entry into our room was an added bonus. Thank you Leon and David, we have alreadt booked our next stay!
