A real gem !
I was delighted with everything about the guesthouse. The room was lovely with tasteful features and fittings. The little patio in front of the room provided a lovely view and I would have been happy to sit there all day long ! The hospitality was excellent, the breakfast great and my only disappointment was the pool, which was out of action because of the drought conditions being experienced in the region.
