5,8 Okay
Pros: It was very comfortable, great view, comfortable bed, the best room of the property, until later that night...
Cons: ...there was an unfortunate incident (leaking boiler/broken pipe). This kept us up at night. While it is unfortunate, since we paid top dollar the owners, we were disappointed that the owners didn't feel like giving a discount because of it.

Pros: Service
Cons: Better location
6,7 Good
Pros: Breakfasts were very good and the house is nicely decorated.
Cons: We stayed in a Garden room which was quite dark (although this meant it was quite cool) but it lacked privacy. When we arrived two men were sitting at a table in the garden directly outside our room. Whilst at the pool a man came up from the beach and frightened my wife. It would be better if the garden was fenced off to prevent such intrusions.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great house in a splendid location right on the coast, with amazing views over the ocean, particularly at sunset. The room was very comfortable and the hosting by Sandra, Reinhard and their staff, excellent. We loved the delicious breakfast (omelette muffins!) and its reliance on local producers.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The hosts were unbelievably helpful and extremely accommodating and the property is beautiful. They had so much great advice about the area and really took the time making sure we had the best trip. We were unable to make the breakfasts due to early plans and the host very kindly packed us a lunch to go on our last day to prepare us for a long drive. Our car battery died while we were there (!) and they went out of their way to help and jump started the car very early in the morning for us. Overall an amazing place to stay and highly recommended.

9,2 Excellent
Pros: Lovely calm and serene. Could stay a week
4,0 Okay
Pros: Beautiful country setting.
Cons: At arrival, I was met by a staff member who was trying to attend to another guest. I had to wait quite some time to checking in, then taken to my room and handed the key. The staff member seemed to be in a rush, there was no introduction to the facilities and no inclination or interest in assisting me with my luggage from my car in the parking area which is quite a distance away from the room. The safe was not secured to the wall and I had to search for the ceiling fan switch that is hidden in the wardrobe. The bathroom is in desperate need of TLC and surely guests should find the toilet seat closed on arrival(?). On my return from a wedding at the neighboring farm, I was met by total darkness at 10:30 pm. The following morning I found a tray outside my room with a bottle of water and turn-down chocolates, which was meant for me to enjoy the previous night. I preferred the buffet at breakfast and was disappointed to find that the bowl of fruit salad was empty, but... the freshness of the croissant, the good cup of the coffee and the friendly service made up for that though!
