We stayed one night at Villa Marine and had dinner at Hook Line & Sinker. The room is literally on the rocks. Amaizing setting and great hospitality by our host, Susan. The jacuzzi in the room is amaizing. Whish we could stay longer to dink in more of the see views.

The weather may not have been very kind to us but Sue certainly was. A beautifully appointed room and bathroom, complete with our own gas fire (which we certainly needed) and a fabulous view of the ocean. Even the hair dryer was great with a plug socket, a stool and a mirror all in the right place! This is a very welcoming guest house in a wonderful setting. Sue is a wonderful host, full of interesting conversation. She made a reservation for us at Hook Line and Sinker restaurant, an absolute must if you visit Pringle Bay. Would definitely go back to this guest house.

What a great experience, we loved it so much that we stayed for an extra night! This guesthouse is in the best setting you can possibly find - situated on the ocean front in Pringle Bay, you just look straight out at the waves crashing on the rocks below... Mesmerizing and so relaxing! It doesn't even matter if the weather lets you down as the room has a lovely gas fireplace and you can still watch the waves from the cosy comfort of your room. The room was extremely well equipped and very comfortable..... We can't wait to go back.... Thank you Susan, Eben and staff!

We stayed at Villa Marine as the first part of our honeymoon. A better location would be absolutely impossible. If you want to sit on your little patio and almost get sea spray in your face, this is the place :) it's absolutely awesome! Susan was very accommodating and happy to meet our every need. The small thoughtful touches, like a bottle of champagne and choccies in the fridge, were lovely. My only gripe was that breakfast was a bit 'ordinary', though freshly prepared and delicious. I wish we had stayed longer.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room (the first one as you go up the stairs) and waking up to that view (nothing...

Have just spent a weekend at Villa Marine with my husband - an absolutely gorgeous setting!! We had a superior room with it's own private sea facing terrace and a jacuzzi - the perfect spot for catching up on some reading or just lazing around, undisturbed.
The owners were friendly and helpful without being over-bearing, and the little extras were appreciated such as a plunger and filter coffee in the rooms (instead of the usual Frisco sachets!!), sherry and chocolates. There was a small selection of drinks in the fridge (water, cokes, fruit juice etc) which we thought we would need to pay for, but we were told not to worry on leaving.
My only complaint? Larger, fluffier towels would have been nice, and more continental breakfast options such as croissants etc as I'm not a huge cooked breakfast fan.
