We had a great time staying here and would definitely recommend. The owners Daniel and Nadja are so nice and friendly with great knowledge of the local area. The patio and garden area was really nice to chill in and we made great use of the cheap surf board rental. The coffee with the breakfast was also prefect. Wish we could come back.
