Absolutely no complaints about this guest house. We stayed for four nights in room 7 which was very well decorated, spacious and comfortable. Steve and Denise were very welcoming friendly and helpful. Great breakfasts. 3 minutes walk from beach and very convenient for visiting local area. Highly recommend
