We loved our stay here. The two ladies that run the guesthouse are very friendly and helpful! The breakfast was always brilliant and the room was clean and decorated very nicely. The site itself was very secure and clean. We would highly recommend this place!

We liked this guest house very much. It is situated close to Marine Drive in a quiet area and has secure parking. We felt it was safe enough to walk to and from a restaurant some distance away. Our room was very comfortable and ideal for our needs. There was a pool to cool off in. Best part of stay...

Could not fault this guesthouse. The owners/staff were warm and friendly and very helpful. We had three rooms and they were all equally as nice. The breakfast was delicious and all you could need. We could not be happier with our stay at the Bayside only that I wished we had longer!!

We were very fortunate to be hosted by these folks. They really went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and well looked after. As a matter of fact; we had a family emergency and our plans were curtailed. This meant arriving earlier than expected and finding a place 5 days before during peak season was madness....
