Well placed guest house close to beach front, shops, all you need for your stay within east reach. Good value for money, clean and comfortable.

If you're looking for excellent service, attention to detail and a beautiful location at a reasonable rate Avocet Guest House is the place to go. They have comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated rooms and offer breakfast, packed lunches and dinner. We had a great time! Thanks Marilyn!
