Shelve and hooks in the bathroom. Scented air fresher for the bathroom. Breakfast is your choice of many different items, set up at a time convenient to you. Hosts were super friendly and helpful including a meeting of our car to help with luggage. Refrigerator, hot water kettle, and coffee and tea and water for the room. Finally, THE VIEW of thebay off our balcony in the morning.
The hosts were excellent, the venue is great with all the required attention to detail. Easy to recommend this facility to other travellers.
Warm welcome ,nice clean modern room
Staff was absolutely lovely and helpful. Room was nice. Beautiful town. Overall was an okay stay.
The property is up high on a hill on the town's edge so walking to the town takes 10 minutes. We don't know as we had a car. Not a big deal :-) Bathroom floor had a few hairs on it when we checked in. However the breakfast was not good. The omelet had a very weird fake egg rubbery texture to it and bacon was undercooked. Terrible and unedible. On a good note they brought it to the terrace so we could try to eat the sci-fi eggs in our room overlooking the town. Perhaps it was just an off day in the kitchen?
Very kind owner, warm welcome Room was spotless clean Helpful staff Perfect breakfast, also very flexible
Nice guist house u feel like in home
Absolutely spotless accommodation. Superb decor, delicious breakfast, amazing views and friendly, helpful owners and staff.
The only minor snag was the first set of steepish steps (although not too many) leading up to the house, as there was no support railing. This would be a little daunting for some - especially older people.
Sweet hostess villas managed to make our stay in Naysne just wonderful. Perfect cleanliness, the decor stylish and tasteful. Incredibly friendly attitude and effort to help in everything!
Incredible view, nice room, great people. Would definitely stay there again.
Mist wonderful host and will definitely stay there again and recommend to my friends and family
