I enjoyed my stay. Great breakfast, decent sized room, clean and neat. Every thing was hassle free and well managed. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful and within walking distance from the beach and restaurants.

Maybe change to a other server for the TV. DSTVcompact or something. That was all that did not work. We really enjoy the option from peter to go to a other beach. Because we did not know the place. Breakfast was really the absolute best.

Guesthouse in the heart of Gordans Bay, just a short walk down the road to the beach and a couple of places to eat. Owners friendly and helpful. Rooms comfortable and well equipped. The swimming pool is very inviting. Really enjoyed my stay.

We had a fantastic stay at Big Skies Guesthouse. The guesthouse has spectacular views of Gordon's Bay and the surrounding mountains from the balcony. We enjoyed a very clean spacious ensuite room. Cooked breakfast in the morning was a real treat. A lovely downstairs living room allowed us some quiet time. Tracy and Peter, the owners were great hosts. Well...

Well appointed rooms with comfortable beds and nice facilities, also suitable for families with kids. Owners are a pleasure. Highly recommend this new place. Walking distance to the beach in a safe area, even for walking after dark. Good breakfast included.

We found Tracy to be very helpful and friendly and we particularly liked the small common area which had a microwave and plates etc for visitors use e.g. heating up takeaways We also loved the Breakfast and Bar area with beautful veiws of Gordon's Bay and the surrounding Mountains and Sea.

The service was perfect, the location is ideal (two steps from a really nice beach) and there is nothing to complain about. If I should go to Gordon's Bay again, I would pick this guesthouse without thinking twice. Highly recommended.
