I was very pleased with this location. The owners were open, friendly, helpful, and engaged in the property. The 4-bed room was a tad small but the building contained three sleeping areas and a lovely common area, kitchen, and patio/porch, making it feel like a resort more than a backpackers compound. The bathroom was immaculate, as was the kitchen, and the washing facilities were fairly priced and functioned well. Just across the street from the location was a picnic area, with a lovely view of the bay: you couldn't ask for a more convenient location to enjoy the beach and view. I would definitely stay here again, if I am in the area.
Our room was a bit small for three adult women, but that's the only reason we rated it a 4. It was beautifully clean and well appointed, and the beds were quite comfortable. Also, we didn't mind having a little less space in our room because we were able to use the communal lounge and kitchen and the outdoor garden area, all of which were very pleasant. The location on Parkland Place is great, both convenient and quiet. It's a pleasant, short walk to the beach or a short drive into town. The breakfast is superb, with an extensive choice of delicious breakfast food, excellent beverages, and beautifully set tables. Maria and Guy were friendly, helpful, and fun to get to know. They made us feel very much at home, and we also had a chance to make friends with other guests, which was very pleasant. Finally, we can attest to Maria's top-notch skill as a professional massage therapist if you are interested in arranging for a massage.
