After many years working here on the Peninsula and with a passion
and a dream of running our own bed and breakfast we searched for the perfect location and hand picked the 'Yellow House'.

We then set to create and mould it specifically with you, our guests, in mind
We now warmly welcome you to our home the 'Yellow House’.
