Verified reviewexcellent

I absolutely loved the peace and serenity of the area. Lodge was spotless and very homey. The staff are absolutely wonderful and I would most definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a place to escape the hub hub of the city and truly relax in comfort

Verified reviewvery good

What a warm welcome by the owner. Very understanding that i was gonna be late to arrive due to work. Waited for me. The room was very clean and homely. Very peaceful at night. The breakfast was superb, very filling, was even offered a padjiekos. The ocean views are to die for, you get to enjoy the sunrise while you having your breakfast. It is a pity I could not enjoy it as I was pressed for work. I will definitely come back here just for a holiday. Keep it up.
