Beautiful guest house. Very clean and a lot of detail in decorating. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. Lovely hosts. Lots of information available on city activities . Great location, short stroll to commercial drive where their are many great eateries. Would definitely stay again.

Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
