Amazing host and comfortable stay
The hotel is very comfortable. The room I was in (vanilla/black) could use some fixing up (paint, new tea kettle that doesn't have exposed metal), but the comfort was great and the host/owner is exceptional. Vivian goes above and beyond to ensure you're taken care of. I'd stay again for sure.

Nice house
Place is full of colours and art. It's a big and spacious double storey house next to the beach. Housekeeper is friendly and helpful. Big room but no TV in my room. There's a big TV in the play room along with cards, board games, mahjong tiles, etc. Overall cleanliness is OK. Some corners e.g. bedside lamp a little dusty. Good for a romantic getaway.
