We spent 3 nights at the Sandpiper Guest House, our 1st getaway since the start of COVID 19.. Admittedly we were a little nervous but were extremely impressed with the strict COVID protocols in place. It's a convenient location, the rooms are beautiful and has a lovely sized pool. Breakfast service was great.. our daughter thought is was amazing and was certainly one of her highlights of the weekend. Yvonne is an amazing host, so gracious and helpful. She went out of her way to ensure that we were comfortable. 5 stars for her team as well !

We spent 6 nights at the Sandpiper with Yvonne and her team and loved every minute. A wonderful location with absolutely everything we could need, from fabulous breakfasts to friendly staff, comfy beds and great views of the forest. Yvonne was full of tips and advice on things to see and do and nothing was too much to ask. The kids and I had an amazing holiday. I will be back for sure! Highly recommended.
