  • Great Bach

    Great Bach. Lived up to expectations and more. Perfect location for families and we were really well provided for. 3 minites walk to the beach. The nibbles and wine on arrival were gratefully received after a long journey. Will most certainly stay again. Thank you.

    Firstly, I loved our stay, the location is fabulous, close to the beach, walking distance to shops, and Plaza, nice and quiet. The house was clean, fully stocked pantry, and all you could ask for. This lovely lady goes above and beyond. We had a beautiful platter when we arrived, and breakfast the next day. No Motel can beat that, for the cost that Kay charges. Thanks Kay. Highly recommend to all.

  • Very comfortable stay

    Very comfortable stay. Owner went out her way to welcome us. She even provided us with a delicious cheese platter and lovely wine as well as the extras stocked in the fridge and pantry. Very comfortable beds, and bach was extremely clean and welcoming on our arrival. Will definitely recommend.
