Close to town and no need to find your car keys if you enjoy walking, sunshine and relaxation. Virginia welcomed us and provided lots of wonderful ideas for eating out and sights to see. Meticulously maintained and very relaxed and friendly environment. Other guests very considerate and fun to chat to. Thank you Virginia for making our stay so memorable

What an incredible place to stay! We had the best week at Barbara's Guesthouse - we couldn't have picked a better location. The Guesthouse is close to the beach and the shops but it's quiet and feels like it's own oasis. All the beautiful plants and homegrown herbs in the backyard really help create a peaceful and relaxing environment. We...

The house was beautiful, however our stay was horrendous! The landlord disregarded our privacy on multiple occasions by strolling through the back yard and sending other people through the backyard to checkup- not the front door the back yard!! where an outdoor shower is for them to see in. The gardener walked into our house unannounced while most of us...

Very happy with my recent stay at Barbara's Guesthouse. Conveniently located, only 5 minute walk to town. Refreshing recent renovation, with beautiful outdoor area to share with friends and family. Would highly recommend this share style accommodation.

What a wonderful stay at Barbara's Guesthouse! Clean, comfy rooms, a gorgeous patio to enjoy breakfast on, and a laid back welcoming vibe that just made me want to stay longer. Everyone was so lovely! And the outdoor shower was heaven. Definitely coming back!

We had a terrific 2 nights stay at Barbara's.This style of accommodation suited all of our needs. Exceptionally clean and tidy with all the facilities that we needed including delicious fresh fruit for breakfast and beach towels. I loved the quiet outdoor area. It is a short walk to town .The owner is delightful.
