Iain was waiting for us and welcomed us in, helping with the cases and stuff, and more to the point,... More

This Guest House situated very conveniently for the Airport was a fabulous place to stay, Karen and Iain were the perfect hosts and despite the rather strong winds we enjoyed the view over the bay.from our balcony. We were sorry that we could only stay 2 nights but we managed to do all we wanted on the island. Highly recommend... More

What a wonderful place to stay the night (and longer if we could have done). Ian and Karen were perfect hosts making us feel like friends (rather than first night guests) right from the start.

The most beautiful B&B that I have ever seen. The hosts Ian and Karen are very friendly and hospitable. We can highly recommend this place! PS: It is very popular and often booked out. If available, we would recommend to book two or more nights.
