Viihtyisä majoitus aivan meren äärellä.
Pieni ja sympaattinen majoitus hyvällä pikailla aivan meren äärellä. Siisti & turvallinen. Ystävällinen henkilökunta, hyvä sänky, huone ok. Järjestävät hinta/laatusuhteeltaan hyviä retkiä Bazaruton saaristoon. Saatavilla halutessa myös illallista etukäteen sopimalla. Myös ruoan osalta hinta/laatusuhde oli kohdillaan.
