Helene's place was beautiful, overlooking the town and ocean. She was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. You have your own private bathroom and shower and also access to the hot tub which we took advantage of :). You are going to have to draw straws for the second bedroom because the bed is not comfortable but for the price I'm not complaining. Also there is cereal and bread available for breakfast along with coffee and tea. I would definitely recommend!

Helene is an excellent host who made our stay very enjoyable, the house is wonderful with a great terrace, perfect for a sunshine breakfast. The view is amazing and there is the spa free to use. Top. Helene herself is very kind and caring but gives the privacy you want. A very enjoyable stay :-)

Lovely setting complete with hot tub and porch to enjoy breakfast watching the sun rise. Very kind and welcoming hosts. The steps to get up to the place could be a challenge for some, but otherwise a great place to stay.

Helene User Profile

We are an old-fashioned couple. Alan works days and nights as a carer at our local rest home. I love to stay home and enjoy the sun and sand at our lovely little coastal town. Our favorite activities include movies, walking or hiking in the bush or at the beach, gourmet cooking/dining, travel and exploring new places. Deep conversation about anything and everything with interesting, intelligent and open-minded people. I love reading and have a quite extensive library at home. We are active, but we don't like skiing as I hate the cold and I am not good at it. I always slide backwards. We love warm climates and the Pacific Islands, especially Vanuatu. I have lived overseas for many years of my life. Our children are all grown up and no longer live with us. I am university educated with two degrees, but to me education is just as valid when received from life experience as from tertiary learning. I am a retired accountant now working part-time from home. We love music and our tastes range from classical to modern.
