The location couldn't be better, with a spectacular, uninterrupted vista of the beach – unbroken sand and sea. The décor of this guest house is modern, and the room was extremely light, airy and comfortable. The room amenities are great...the shower is fantastic. The staff are extremely friendly and truly accommodating - you are made to feel very special! Tracy...

My wife and I stayed here for one night this month and we only wish it could have been longer. The property appeared to be very new, the design of the room and the finish was absolutely outstanding. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into its design and the attached shower/bathroom. The room overlooked the beach with a wee...

I arrived in the middle of season without a reservation and was very fortunate to find a suite. From my reception to the day I left I felt pampered and cared for. The hotel is situated on the beach with easy excess. My room had luxury furniture and amenities with a great coffee station with a variety of teas and...

This is one of the easiest reviews I have ever written, there is simply nothing not to love about this remarkable guesthouse. The surroundings are sensational, of course, and you are able to step out from the accommodation straight onto the sandy beach, so a huge tick for that (they aren't lying with the name!).
