Anne and Rob made us feel right at home. They are warm and kind hostes. The appartement is somewhat aged but very comfortable and clean. Breakfast is wonderful!! The location is perfect, with nice view from the terras and the centre of Saint Francis at walking distance. The beach is just 2min walk. Lovely to go swimming. We had a verry nice stay at Anne and Robs cottage.

Response from Anne E, Owner at Cottage on the Hill Guest House
Responded 24 Oct 2019
Thankyou. We always enjoy hosting our guests and we would like to comment that our Cottage has an old world charm of a thatched Cottage in this quaint seaside village. Each apartment or suite at Cottage on the Hill has a different look and character that we like our guests to experience that is the difference between our guesthouse and a styalised hotel room. We hope to see you both again.

We stayed at Cottage on the Hill for three nights and enjoyed every moment of our stay with Anne and Rob (and the happy little Dachses of course). We were on the top floor in a spacious and light room with a large deck. The Cottage is easy to find, close to everything (we were here mainly to play St Francis Links), very well set up and complete. Amazing friendliness of Anne and Rob (extremely helpful and able) goes a long way, from great breakfasts to booking restaurants and anything in between. We really felt cared about and taken good care of. Would recommend the Cottage to anybody traveling to St Francis Bay area. Thank you Anne and Rob !

Ann and Rob are the perfect hosts. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Great location, with lovely views. Fabulous breakfasts made to order. Room was well equipped, clean and comfortable. There’s plenty of outdoor space too. Would definitely recommend this guest house as a place to stay. Thanks Ann & Rob.

More than we could have expected! Warm welcome by the very hospitable Rob and Anne. Beautiful and super clean room with a great view over the bay. We were too late for the cruise, but without any problems they arranged for us an other cruise. The breakfast was exquisite. It was a shame we stayed here only one night. Thanks for everything! Greetings from Gouda, Holland.
