If you want an elegant, boutique style high quality place to stay, this is IT! A wonderful trio of innkeepers who truly understand how to treat guests and maintain a very special vacation resort. This is the only place we will stay at when in Ptown. Immaculately clean, the most comfortable bedding, a truly made to order breakfast with real...

We loved Carpe Diem - the whole experience was a total pleasure from beginning to end! We received a warm welcome and a tour of the grounds and many amenities Carpe Diem has to offer. The wine hour invariably extended to two hours and we met some really excellent and interesting people. Jason does indeed rock and was the perfect...

After reading commentaries on this lovely Guest House in Pt'Town, I booked for 3 days. I just wished it was for longer. The place is cosy, clean, nice: it felt like being at a friends' house. The atmosphere is very friendly and guests become easily accustomed to the atmosphere. Breakfast is just an incredible experience and the SPA is an...

Everyone made us feel very welcome here! There was a great mix of people here that we got to know at the wine and cheese hours. Jason rocks the wine and cheese hour. He was fabulous and we would go back just to see him. The breakfasts were great and the homemade bread delicious. The bathroom had limited counter space...

We found Carpe Diem online and were attracted to it by all of the glowing reviews that it received. I'm happy to say that the Inn more than lived up to the hype. The rooms were immaculate, the service impeccable, the breakfast were great (thank you Jurgen) and the guests were friendly. Many thanks to Rainer, Jürgen and Hans for...

The rooms were beautiful. The owners and other staff were superlative. Would say that housekeeping and toiletries could improve (considering the price of the rooms). I would have like to have seen the rooms checked in the afternoon and fresh towels provided if needed. Turn down service would be nice. The common areas were beautiful. The wine and cheese daily...

We have been staying at Carpe Diem in P Town for the last 6 years after trying out most of the other premium inns in town. CD is simply the best.

This was our third visit to Carpe Diem and it won't be the last. Our hosts and the staff went out of their way, once again, to ensure that we enjoyed our stay and were comfortable. We felt totally at ease to utilize all the common areas as if it was our own home. The staff was genuinely pleasant, professional,...

Once again, a week at Carpe Diem was flawless and so much fun I almost cried when we had to leave. Sitting at the long table for breakfast, wine and cheese in the back in the afternoon, and a super comfortable bed at nite are just a few elements that make up for a great experience.
