I didn't want a place on the main road so this was perfect. Booked in advance and was very pleased when I arrived. Excellent rooms for a good price - better than I thought it would be. Good hosts. So pleasant to stay here that I booked an extra night. Recommend.

We recently spent two nights here and were most impressed - spotlessly clean, lovely hosts, spacious room, every facility you could wish for - even soap powder supplied in the laundry! Inexpensive so great value for money - and just a short walk to waterfront. Well done and thank you Gary and Jocelyn.

Previous reviews say it all really. Casa Bella caters for the travellers passing through. It is cheap (for this tourist hot spot) clean, well provided for and has all the functional amenities you need. The room was clean, the room was well-equipment, the wi-fi was free - and worked and there was a parking space allocated to the room. Easy... More

We could not fault this place. Perfect for us and the kids. Great location, easy stroll into town or for shopping. Immaculate condition, so clean and well organised. We loved the pool and spa as well. Would definitely return and recommend to others.

We stayed at Casa Bella at the start of our honeymoon. Gary was kind enough to have a bottle of bubbly chilling in the fridge on our arrival. We had a queen room which was big and airy with a comfortable bed. Everything in the room was clean and the shower was hot and powerful. Less than a 5 minute... More

On arrival we thought Casa Bella had very good 'kerb appeal' compared to other properties in the area. My first impression of our room was that it lacked style and the fixtures and fittings were dated. However the place was spotless, had a very comfy bed and a super shower. There is no a/c but we were able to obtain... More
