    Our two day stay was fabulous. Breakfast was TOPS: Delicious, fresh & substantial; Hosts Tom and Magda were welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Their hospitality was excellent and remarkable. The guesthouse staff are friendly and cleanliness is remarkable. The ocean views from the breakfast deck, and, on same level, in front of- and from within our room (Robin), were superb. The hosts lent us (their-/the guest house-) binoculars to use. The luggage lift to haul our luggage from the car park level was a great help. We needed a few clothing items to be laundered and our hosts didn't hesitate to have their kind staff launder (without ironing) our items.

    Stairways to the Reception: Although rustic and adventuresome, the wooden steps could be especially challenging for unfit- or physically challenged persons from the car park level to the reception level, even more so to reach the other 2 units on a higher level. PLUMBING: In our unit, inside the shower plinth, when we showered, the water didn't drain fast enough and one would be standing in rising water. The shower taps could be changed to a more modern mixer handle than the older existing types, i.e. individual hot- and cold tap handles; the shower head could also do with a change. Toilet noise: When we flushed the toilet, the toilet noise of possibly either the cistern valve or pipe valves need replacing. Bed Mattress: Possibly the mattress needs replacing; while it may be a firm acceptable mattress, it may not be thick to offer enough comfort.

    Breakfast was lovely.

    Nobody was around when we arrived to check in. We rang all of the bells but no answer. We hung around the communal lounge area for 15 minutes before one of the general staff stumbled accross us.

    Beautiful views, walking distance from restaurants and beach. A few kilometers from Ebb and Flow which offers hikes and canoe hire.Tom and Magda were just wonderful and the breakfast was absolutely delicious with amazing birdlife on show.

    I found the steep stairs difficult.
