A modernistic looking cuboid designed house painted an unfortunate brown colour. A brushed aluminium or stainless steel finish would be much more in keeping with the style. Aesthetics aside great view but a pity about the access and lack of soundproofing. Ann the manager was over bearing, too nosey and intrusive offering unwanted advice. Unable to recommend

This is a modern, architect designed purpose built B&B located directly opposite an expansive beach. The property is reached by climbing a steep set of stairs so not suitable for anyone who might find these a challenge. The two identical rooms downstairs are very small but tastefully furnished and open up directly onto a large deck overlooking the beach -...

This beautiful architecturally designed home with modern clean lines and spectacular views was a welcomed respite for the four nights we spent here. Our host, Ann was attentive enough to create a sense of belonging while also being respectful of our space and privacy. On our first morning we were greeted with a beautifully set breakfast table where we sat...

Walk across the street to a gorgeous beach, with fine grey sand, excellent for swimming or walking. Mesmerizing to watch the waves change the color of the sand, there is a gold underlay and mixed with grey looks green at times. Glass walls provide amazing view of beach and mountains beyond. Walk down the road to nice restaurants.

Yes this B&B should be renamed Absolutely Fabulous. What a unique gem on the beach front. We stayed for 3 nights in a studio room overlooking the sea. Compact but this added to the uniqueness as there was everything you needed including a huge decking and a kingside bed which was extremely comfortable. Ann the owner made us feel so...

had stayed here for my honeymoon... the whole house is so beautifully constructed... the superior room we stayed in was super big and was amazingly decorated... we were welcomed with bottle of local wine and chocolates... the only problem we faced was that the walls are so thin that even if a needle falls in other room you can easily...

This place is fantastic. A great situation for relaxing at the beach in the comfort of your accommodation! Great hospitality and very helpful about car parking or leaving luggage while we were away walking for a couple of days. We made to feel very welcome and the continental breakfast is more than adequate. Perhaps the only minor downside is the...
