Andy is a perfect host. Great locality. Large rooms and large bathroom. Wonderful breakfast.close to all amenities. The Gordons Bay beach is well maintained with excellent, well supervised cleaners making sure that the beach is clean even after large crowds.

I arrived on a hot day and it was refreshing how I was welcomed. The staff was very friendly and accommodating with my requests. I spent my birthday and they made me feel very special indeed. The rooms are very well furnished and maintained. The location is perfect for walking to multiple beach spots including bikini beach.

An absolute excellent guesthouse, couldn't find anything that was wrong. The rooms very clean, the beds very good and the breakfast fantastic! The beach and restaurants of Gordon's Bay were close. Perfect!

Very friendly greeting. Tiny plunge pool only, with artificial turf "lawn" around it. Very comfortable rooms, and excellent large bathrooms. Honesty Bar - but great prices, and good breakfast. It isn't luxury, but it is really enjoyable for our one night stay.

Despite our late arrival, the owner was kindly waiting for us and after showing our bedroom, gave us quick advice for good dinner (see other notes) and off we went.
