My sister and I decided on an impromptu road trip and ended up at 138 Marine. Des, was super hospitable and made us feel welcome immediately but at the same time was not overly attentive. She followed the covid procedures carefully, gave us a tour of the house and guided us regarding the local hiking trails. She also organised a twin room instead of a double, which was a nice touch. The room was spacious, tastfully decorated and my personal favourite...had under floor heating which was DIVINE when we returned for the evening. We also enjoyed very internet connection and glorious views. We had a delicious breakfast the next morning and mine was gluten free (I'm Celiac). Yay for me! A little strange for us was the fact that you can't choose a TV channel in the room. One has to go to the lounge, change it and everyone is then forced to watch what you choose. That said It, it didn't bother us because we don't watch TV. Overall, a magical stay and I recommend it 100%.

Beautiful and cozy beach house. The rooms are light and beautifully decorated, the hotel offers stunning sea and sunset views. One of the best french toast I ever had, thank you Jena and Des for sharing this lovely space with us.

Our warm welcome with a cup of filter coffee set the tone for a super enjoyable stay at this gorgeous seafront guesthouse. We loved the seascapes from our elegant bedroom and lovely upstairs lounge complete with wraparound balcony. The breakfast menu was outstanding with fresh fruit and a choice of beautifully presented hot breakfast options. Highly recommended for discerning guests!

You feel like you are on the beach you are so close, on a comfortable bed. The hosts have put great effort in attention to every detail. The food is fresh and delicious. We feel like new people after our stay.
