            great room and view, but nothing else”

            First of all, this guest house is not known as Giethoorn, and it does not appear on any maps as such. It was hard to find because of that. Secondly nobody at the guest house speaks english, and there are no 'guides to the guest house'written in english, which makes it very hard to understand what/ how/ where / when. due to this, we were locked out at a certain moment; at another moment, we had to go and ask help from the neighbours to get us a taxi to get back to town. There are hardly any restaurants in the neighbourhood the hotel is accross the main road. While the road is not busy, you are NOT directly on the beach. but beautiful stretch of beach and the middle of nowhere. Given all this, we found the guest house expensive. We do note that the room was very nice, the bathroom too and was well catered for. Breakfast was also mediocre and again, no communication possible. this should really be mentioned in agoda! it is misleading as it is now.

            Nice room, nice bed, clean washroom. Feel very comfy and relaxing staying there. Gorgeous view from room and roof. My only regret is that the weather was not good during my stay, I can’t see the sun rise from the sea level. The building looks good at night.

            浴室玻璃門整個掉下來,如果是小朋友在裡面的話一定受傷。 而且這看來不是第一次發生了。

            無敵海景看日出角度絕佳!”

            我們是在2020.12.9入住,可惜連日的雨勢,到了晚上仍在下雨,不然頂樓備有躺椅可以直接在樓上觀星,我們只能躲在屋簷透過雲縫不時看到幾顆星星,不過強運的我們!隔天一早雨停了,天空矇矇亮的地方也出現藍天,我們就在頂樓露臺直接看到正前方太陽冉冉升起,景色壯闊,民宿面向經過設計,所有房間內就可以直接面向東方看到日出,室內乾淨整潔空間寬敞,可以聞到淡淡木頭香,早餐是由老闆娘親手每一份製作,還可以客製化或加點,旁邊還有提供咖啡、薰衣草奶茶、洛神花茶、牛奶等小點心,住起來溫馨舒適!

            室內是木地板,進大廳需換拖鞋。 整間都是由房東設計,每間隔局方正,以木頭為主~ 如果早餐吃不夠還可以加點,還有24小時免費的咖啡和小點心可以吃~ 民宿對面就是海岸,走路過去三分鐘就到~可以不用去七星潭也很美~
