We loved our stay here. It was quiet and close to where we needed to go each day. The room has a fridge, stove and kettle. There was also access to a... kitchen in the main house for anything else we needed. The room was very spacious and we felt very comfortable and safe. The area is beautiful with stunning views of the sea. Would definitely book here again. Thank youread more

Very nice place with super friendly staff! One point for improvement is the shower. Bit dirty and old. Bit far from the city center and unfortunately... you need to go there to surf, but there is transport arranged if you don’t have a car!read more

The whole team, the lodge and the surroundings were perfect. On arrival my suitcase was not brought and I had to wait a day for it. Adrian had picked... me up in the evening and drove another extra two hours to the airport the next day to pick up my suitcase there! From this you can see how much the team cares that everyone is doing well. Thank you for that and for the whole vacation with you! I will definitely love to come back.read more

The lodge has a path that goes directly to the beach, and I went there almost every morning with the dogs that live at the lodge to watch the sunrise.
