Serviced Self-Catering - As Independent As You Want to Be

We stock the Suites with essentials  such as soap, shampoo, paper, tea, coffee, milk, salt, pepper, sugar, cooking oil and drinking water. We also provide all you need for a healthy home-breakfast: eggs, cereal, bread and fresh fruit.

You can prepare your own meals or eat out at the many and reasonably priced restaurants within 5 minutes walk of the Suites.

While you are out, we will come in to clean the bathrooms, take out the garbage and do a quick sweep to clear out dust and beach-sand. We change the sheets and towels every 4 or 5 days (depending on the length of your stay) or sooner if requested. We live on the premises and are happy to help in any way we can to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.
