                                              Room 9 had a wonderful sea view with a generous bath. Breakfast was hearty and the river mouth is a few steps away. No Wi-fi and network is patchy. Location is away from town noise without being far away. Remember to check out the view by the airstrip.

                                              Nothing, there was no bar fridge, microwave though it's self catering guest house. You listed wifi in your display we did not receive any password. The way we were welcomed was cold and uncalled for.

                                              Despite a very good location (view from the rooms is really nice), the rooms were not very clean, and in our case the showers were not working (in the first one there was no hot water, in the second the sink was broken). The rates ar per person and not per room, it is quite expensive for the quality offered.
