The guesthouse is beautifully presented both indoor and out as was the cold breakfast...

Never have we enjoyed such a lovely guesthouse before! Peter and his team define a new standard of hospitality. We enjoyed the nice garden, the clean, spacious and tastefully decorated rooms, the helpful advice of the team, a perfect breakfast - every single detail. In one word: a treasure. We'll be back!

We stayed here for 2 nights in October 2014. This is a super nice guesthouse and our charming host Peter has done an excellent job with this property.

We spent three nights at An der Mole 16, a three bedroom/two bathroom apartment owned and run by Cornerstone - it is located right on the seafront, beautifully and tastefully furnished and everything is impeccable. The terrace is huge and the apartment completely secure with beams and shutters and it is ideal for three or more guests who value privacy...

What a lovely experience this was. Everything was neat and tidy and from the minute we met Peter we felt so welcome. Unfortunately we did not get to meet Margo but I am sure she is very nice as well. Our family room was very private and the breakfast was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for Peter or Bettina...
