We stayed for a few nights and throughly enjoyed staying at this well run and comfortable guest house. Tim, Nadine and the staff work very hard to make everyone's stay specific for their needs. They take time to find out what you would like from your stay, whether purely to relax by the pool in the gardens or to visit...

Beautiful guesthouse with very nice and thoughtfull owners. They helped us to get a reservation at a nice place. Beautiful bathroom and nice swimming pool. The breakfast was also very nice. Only minor was the location, about 10 min walk from the city-center.
