5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

I booked here thinking it was at the Heads, but no matter, very close to Heads and overlooking lagoon. Very welcoming and charming hosts with a very sweet welcome from their boxer dog. Learnt that hostess walks spca dogs in the mornings - wonderful!

Friendly atmosphere . Breakfast was excellent and in a beautiful setting on the open porch overlooking the harbor. Rooms were very clean and well kept. Good reccomendations were made on places to eat in the Knsyna area.

We only stayed one night and would definitely come here again. The owner, Derek looked after us as soon as we arrived and made some coffee to welcome us. The rooms were immaculate, very modern and spacious. And the pool was very clean and inviting. The breakfast was fantastic with fresh pastries and lots of choices for cooked breakfast!

This is the second time we have stayed here. Derek looked after us well and provided good information about the area. Much better than the standard impersonal hotel environment, it's great to chat to fellow guests in this small friendly guest house - breakfasts are superb!

Its very clean and good for a stay overnight. (come late and go early) Every room face the entry, like a Motel without cars. Nothing for a longer stay. People are friendly and a good breakfast. Quit in the night.

Very nice owner, supportive in helping organizing day trips. Room was very spacious only a little bit of noise due to the fact that it is directly situated at a street. But as there are only a view vehicles driving not at all disturbing.
