Recently I stayed here for 4 nights over a 2 week period and loved everything about the place! First off the location is superb, very central yet very peaceful opposite a gorgeous little beach with a milkwood forest right in front of the guesthouse and close enough to hear the gentle lapping of the waves at night. The property has a timeless feel to it and the 2 massive palm trees in the front bear testimony to this.
I checked in after dark and the system is very organised and found my keys and room without any problems.
The room was great, lots of space, excellent linen, mini fridge and I loved the vintage parquet flooring. All the little details made this a lovely experience from the complimentary sherry in the evening to the excellent beauty range in the bathroom.
Breakfast was great and on 2 occasions the staff arrived early to serve me an early breakfast. Ria and her staff were very friendly and helpful and I would highly recommend this guesthouse.
