We walked miles on the beach which is stunning, though apparently shouldnt swim out past waist height. The forest walk was also enjoyable. The rooms were large and well equipped. The breakfast was fine -...

We were a large group of friends and they met our needs exceedingly well. Beautiful rooms, nicely appointed, most with fantastic views of the ocean and the passing dolphins. There is an easily accessible pathway down to the beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The room was a great size and beautifully appointed. It is always helpful to have a small kitchen area when you stay in a B&B. It was really wonderful being able to see the dolphins frolicking in the waves right outside the bedrooms. The breakfast Muesli was fantastic, a complete meal on its own....

We just had a night here, and it was excellent. We were warmly welcomed, and shown to our garden room, which was very pleasant. Breakfast was good, well served and plentiful. Good access to the beach via a wooden walkway and steps.

This is a rather special place overlooking a huge beach. One is lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf. It's important to book one of the rooms with the view, rather than the rooms at the back, although the latter are perfectly comfortable. Breakfast is freshly prepared by the friendly staff and of excellent quality. I had some...
