Best location for guests who love the sound of the sea. No road between the house an the sea. Good breakfast and nice hosts. A perfect stay when on the way along the shore. In Whale Season you can watch them from your bedroom.

We stayed for 2 nights to fit in with our planned shark dive. Sylvia was very helpful via mail before our visit and booked 2 wonderful restaurants for us. Both Sylvia and the rest of her family were lovely and very accommodating during our stay. The location is superb with the ocean not much over 50 metres from our bedroom. We didn't see any whales as we were a bit late in the season but just sitting on our veranda having a glass of wine and watching the ocean was wonderful. A fabulous couple of nights. Thank you.

We would like to stay at the ocean site and hoped to see some whales. And yes we did! It was great to have a view at the ocean and see the wildlife. Also the B&B was perfect. Nice rooms and very friendly staff.
