    All the added touches in the rooms plus heated swimming pool, games room. The breakfast is excellent and nothing is to much trouble as you eat your breakfast over looking the harbour and out to sea. The owners where friendly and will offer advice on the best places to see the penguins whales and places to eat

    This is a beautiful guest house. The hostess was very nice and has an excellent eye for detail. The rooms are decorated in a boat/ocean theme and the room we had was very charming. You can use their indoor pool and on the deck there are lounge beds. The location is wonderful too, overlooking the harbour. We would definitely like to come back here.

    Nothing, this place is a pearl.
