Beautiful home, large, comfortable room with balcony overlooking the bay. Good service and plentiful, well prepared breakfast. Need a car to access but just a few minutes drive to restaurants. Would go back.

We were there for 2 nights and it's going to be one of the best memories of our trip. For many reasons: - the house is perfect. Places to read, rooms are very good with a terrasse and charming. The view on the lagoon is ... wow - Irvin and Gladys are 2 people very kind. Asking you every time what can they make for you. And if you ask us to take minutes for speaking about their country they do it. - the day we were there we had a bad weather conditions so impossible to make the boat planned. Irvin manage to organize us a perfect township tour on the afternoon(which was more than a simple tour) whereas it is always done in the morning. - breakfast are excellent Simply the best guesthouse where we have been.

What a treat!!! We were warmly welcomed by Adele and her little doggies (she’ll keep them out of your way, if you don’t like dogs). Our little boy fell in love with the place and the people: he wanted to stay another 10 nights :)! Staff makes life easy for you. Whatever tou want, they’ll get it for you! After the fires distroyed the main building (Bradach manor), they were forced to serve from Alfred’s manor: and they do!!! Thanks a million and a big hug from Milan!
