    "It was very nice and quite. The room was big enough for the three of us and they clean daily. They have all channels for DSTV. Secure parking. It's close to the beach and to the Boardwalk."

  • "Walking distance to sea side."

    14 January 2014

    "I stayed in a room for 1 to 2 persons. Clean, sufficiently comfortable for a solo weekend, clean, well located, clean with safe parking. For the single person or adventurous couple who are out and about and requires a clean place to come home to at night. Full dstv as a bonus! If you are the type who goes on holiday and stay indoors most of the time you might find it a bit cramped."

  • "Baie mooi"

    01 October 2013

    "Baie mooi plekkie bietjies te klein vir ons gewees, gevoel of jy in gehok word. was te benoud om heeldag daar te gebly het. Die dryn het gestink en ek het nie gehou van die gordyn as 'n deur vir 'n toilet nie, as 'n mens jou nommer twee wil doen wil jy darm ook nie he jou man moet dit ruik nie, as 'n health en safety rep is dit baie baie onverpas."

  • "Problem with the advert"

    24 December 2012

    "The rooms were clean and sufficient for what we needed. I do have a problem with the advert as it is on your site. It mentions clearly that breakfast is included, but upon our arival when I asked the details of the breakfast, I was informed that breakfast is not included? This was one of the main reasons why I booked at the guest house.

    16 March 2010

  • "SA b & B Stay"

    26 May 2009

    "Wonderful place... clean, very close to a nice beach and just off a main road into PE.Great stay was tainted by a security light that was right above our door.... made it hard to sleep, and was never turned off.Also,one morning the noise of breakfast preparation filled our room from 5:00 on.I went and complained and they blamed it on the room next door( which probably did not have a bunch of dishes to rattle and move!).Overall pretty good!"

    "Marina tried her best to make us comfortable.Unfortunately the room was not near the standard we expected.It was very cramped with little natural light. There was no place to sit outside with privacy.Insufficient cupboard and hanging space,no towel rails,shelves or toilet paper holder in the shower/toilet cubicle which had no door between it and the bedroom.The often used rubbish bin was right below the only window which opened onto the garage.

    31 March 2008

    "We have had a great stay at this B&B. Friendly, clean, safe, good beds and a good central spot. We have stayed with 8 people so rented 4 rooms but not all the rooms are that well equipped for self catering. A fantastic B&B but I would not go for the self catering, cooking a proper meal would be a bit difficult.Thanks for staying and we would certainly come back again!"
