Lovely Stay Right Outside of Town
Very comfortable, peaceful, and exceptionally clean place to stay. We had a double twin room on the first floor and it fit our one night stay needs well. The room was spacious enough for our two big packs and the beds quite comfortable. Shared bathroom was large and easily shared with the other couples staying too. Common kitchen area has everything you may need, is a lovely setting to chat with others, and has fantastic views of the mountains. Very short drive to the beach and town.
