Positive Reviews

Hosts are awesome

The hosts at this guesthouse are the reason guests make repeat visits. They are simply a delight, welcoming guests with a smile and attending to their requests in no time. They are also said to be an asset when it comes to recommending spots to sightsee in the area, and guests are grateful for their local knowledge.

A terrific location

According to reviews, the accommodation is located strategically. Guests enjoy ocean views right from the property’s deck, which overlooks the seafront. The central location also puts guests within vicinity of shopping, so they can shop until they drop. Guests also mention having an easy time accessing local eateries, as they are only a stone’s throw away. Moreover, most visitors report a quiet experience at this property, which makes for a good night’s sleep.

Super clean and spacious

The accommodations are spotless, according to guests. From the rooms and bathrooms to the kitchens, everything is said to be clean and tidy. Visitors say the bedding is immaculate too, allowing guests a comfy sleep. Additionally, guests report a good experience with the generous space available in the accommodations, saying it makes for an easy spread-out, just like at home. It’s not an issue storing excess luggage as well, thanks to the more-than-adequate space in each accommodation.

Negative Reviews

Slight updates needed

Travellers frequently describe the furnishings as outdated. The TVs are not very modern, and guests would like to see the bathrooms offer better toilets. While certain rooms within the apartments are air conditioned, many travellers wish there was a fan in the rooms that are not. These small touch-ups would certainly go a long way in guest experiences.
