A wonderful relaxed atmosphere where you can feel right at home. I've noticed some O/S visitors condemning the place but I found it excellent. We had no problems with mossies or spiders.(Although it IS Australia so if they were around we are well used to them!) Rooms were well appointed, clean, welcoming and YES, even had mossie nets. Loved the Balinese theme and being surrounded by so much wood and positive energy. The host Donna was excellent. Great fun and easy to deal with. The guest house is also just far enough out of the city centre to be quiet and away from the hustle and bustle, and yet only 10 min walk to the beach. (GREAT coffee too just down the road at The Top Shop) I would recommend this guest house for anyone looking for a relaxed easy going stay. The house is a Queenslander so you could hear guests trumping down the hallway etc. Not a biggie though when you spend most of your time at the beach!
Thanks again Donna!
