Beautiful guesthouse in a safe neighbourhood with lots of security measures in place. Well maintained and sparkling pool too. Rooms are comfortable with aircon and the extras in the bathroom impressed me - dental kit, shaving kit and even sewing kit. Owners are hand-on and very friendly - go out of their way to ensure your comfort and satisfaction.

We were looking for somewhere close to family for a couple of nights with AC very last minute and Emsie & Carl with nothing but accommodating. The room was exceptionally clean, a very good size and very comfortable. Lovely views and a nice sized pool to enjoy also. We will be back and would highly recommend.

This is a great spot. Had a fantastic overnight stay. Both accommodation and food on point. A home away from home for sure. Clean and very well designed with lots of effort gone into the small practical things to make a lovely stay. Very good hosts with first class service. Will be back soon.
