We rest our weary heads at the Craigrownie Guest House, Bantry Bay

The exterior belies the charming interior that is to be found here

Product placement 101.
We had room number 3 which has its own "private" balcony

The room comes equipped with all the mod cons.
Dstv bouquet, tea/coffee and a fridge.

Young and old can enjoy the calm that the tasteful decor offers.
A great space to work in...

The upstairs seating area offers a leads onto the communal balcony.
It overlooks both the pool and the Atlantic Ocean

A view of the breakfast room

The dining area is bright and fresh and leads out to the pool deck.
Breakfast is usually served until 10h00

The main entrance also does duty as a "formal" lounge

The pool area.

A rather quirky spiral staircase leads to the upper floor

If you enjoy swimming, then I suggest that you ask for Room 2.
You can step straight into the pool

Our loo...

With a view.

Although it has a private balcony,
Room 3 also has access to the balcony in front of the upstairs lounge

And at the end of the street,
The Atlantic Ocean

In all its glory...

A Gull keeps an eye on me.
You can wall for kilometers from the guest house.
If you are fit, and have the time,
you can walk/run to the V&A Waterfront.

Or, like us, you can watch the sunset.
This photograph was taken by a friend that we bumped into on the promenade.
We have not seen each other for almost 2 decades!
Thanks for this memory...

Bantry Bay in the daytime...

Bantry Bay by night

Highly recommended.
The manager, Frank Malaba, is a gem.
