This place is in walking distance of shops and restaurants. The owners are really lovely giving ideas and are interested in their guests. Their breakfast is delicious with fresh fruits and self baked bread which is still warm. Rooms are lovely with comfi beds. They also have a nice pool with a beautiful garden surrounding it. Definitely worth to go

Excellent value. Spacious, albeit ordinary room. Basically everything one needed. Good breakfast cooked to order. Would recommend to any traveler. Free car parking. A little far out of town but no problem if you have your own car.

It was a nice stay. The BnB is a little bit remote but with a great view. Many restaurants offer a free shuttle service so the remote location doesn't really matter. Service was great and the room was standard.

Very spacious rooms. Can only be reached really by car, as it is on top of the hill. The way out of the parking lot is very steep, but since there is not much traffic, it's okay. Breakfast was good and the staff was helpful (they allowed me to use their phone to make a Reservation at Addo)

The House is really cute and nice! You have everything you need. Unfotunetly it's a little far from city center if you want to walk. An absolute no-go: wifi doesn't work although it should be. If you order breakfast it's ok, but we have really better ines on our way on the garden route. It's just cute they bring it... More
