La maison d'Helen est très jolie, décorée avec beaucoup de goût. Helen nous a accueilli comme des amis et a joué les taxis pour nous, nous amenant et venant nous rechercher au port lorsque nous nous sommes rendus à Sark car il n'est pas possible de se garer plus de 12 heures au port. Merci encore Helen nous reviendrons car l'île de Guernesey ne nous a pas livré tous ses secrets.
We had a wonderful week at Vazon Cottage. The location is perfect: 2 minutes walk to the next bus stop and from there - provided by Helen with map and bus schedule - we could easily get everywhere on the island. The room is spaceous, perfectly clean, nicely furnished, very well equipped and the shower is the best one we ever had outside our house. The best of all is Helen, a perfect host who offers an ideal balance between feeling as a family member and independant guest. She picked us up at the airport, drove us back when we left, was always ready for an exchange of impressions, gave us a lot of informations and tips. Her breakfast was lovely and her suppers just fabulous! We fully reccomend a stay at Vazon Cottage.
My partner and I stayed with Helen for a night while visiting the Island for a wedding.
From the first contact Helen was helpful, informative and extremely friendly.
When we arrived at her charming cottage we were greeted by a welcome sign and were given clear instructions on how to find our room in Helen's absence, as she allowed us to check in early even though she was still at work.
When we did finally meet her in person she was so welcoming and easy to talk to.
We most definitely will stay with Helen again and would recommend highly to other visitors looking for some where to stay.
Thanks Helen, you were great!
Quel magnifique séjour passé chez Helen. C est une hôte fantastique, très chaleureuse et disponible. Elle nous a fait apprécier le charme de Guernesey en nous indiquant les visites à ne pas manquer, les pubs typiques à découvrir...
La chambre et la maison sont magnifiques et tellement originales, il y a tout ce dont on peut avoir besoin même plus!!!
Une adresse incontournable pour nos futurs voyages à Guernesey!!!
Helen was a wonderful host who went above and beyond our expectations. She even picked us up off the Sark ferry and also welcomed us back with a beer after a 4 hour long walk exploring Guernsey! Rooms were clean, comfortable with some lovely touches. She made my partner and I feel very at ease in her home and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Lovely cottage with brilliant room and spacious kitchen to cook. We had our own fridge and cupboard to store food.
100m from the beach and 10 minutes from the airport. Lots of nice pubs within 5 minute cycle or 20 minute walk.
Helen was lovely from start to finish and recommended lots of things for to do during our stay.
Helen is an outstanding host, always cheerful and in addition to that, she is a great cook. I really appreciated and enjoyed sharing a supper with her friends and neighbours — it was as we always knew each other.
Not to mention the cottage is incredibly lovely, cosy and welcoming — which makes it perfect to spend some time inside with no regret. Because of the place. Because of the people.
It has been a great experience and I can only thank Helen a gazillion times for creating such a singular and lovely hosting experience.
