Avant l'arrivée : communication impeccable, Helen nous a indiqué clairement comment venir chez elle. L'endroit est magnifique, à 2mn de la plage à pied, un bon restaurant juste à côté et un magasin. Helen est très accueillante et nous a tout de suite fait nous sentir bienvenus. La chambre est propre, bien arrangée, il ne manque rien ! Nous n'avons passé qu'une nuit, mais c'était trop court et si nous revenons à Guernesey, nul doute que c'est chez Helen que nous reviendrons dormir.
Helen is a fantastic host and did everything she could to make our trip very enjoyable. She picked us up and took us back to the airport which saved a huge amount of time and money. Excellent tips about the island too. Room was lovely, the pictures do not do it justice. All in a fantastic.
Helen was a gracious host. Cute little room, very clean. New shower. She kindly added a 2nd bed which was very comfortable. She offers food (for added fee)or the use of her kitchen. She is a gracious host. I would highly recommend staying with her. She picked us up a ferry also. Bus service is nearby & takes you anyplace you need to go on Guernsey.
We received a very warm and relaxed welcome in to Helen's home. The room is beautifully furnished with wonderful en-suite facilities. A full tea/coffee facility is provided as well as towels and hand soap.
The location of Helen's place is perfect for Vazon Beach and the bus route, however, as we had our car there was also plenty of parking space for us. Our cycles were stored safely in the garage. Helen is a lovely host and ensured we were happy and was kind enough to give us a lift to a friends wedding to save us driving or a taxi fare. We usually stay with friends on the island, but we wouldn't hesitate staying with Helen another time.
If you need another name for kindness, it should be Helen Litchfield! We liked our stay very much - from the warm welcome til the sad farewell (as we would have liked to stay longer). The apartment room was nice and clean. The house is just around the corner from the bus station at Vazon Beach, roughly 150 metres from the seaside. Helen gave us lots of insights of the life on Guernsey, what to see and how to get around in the most appropriate way. 5 stars, fully deserved.
Great room in a beautiful cottage - just few minutes walk from the beach and you can even see the sea from the room.
Big room, very clean and with nice touches like tea and coffee and few choccy bars :)
Helen was absolutely lovely - we were out for most of the time so we only saw her once but was very welcoming and chatty. She left us to get on with a fabulous weekend in Guernsey.
I would highly recommend this place! Thank you, Helen.
This is a really lovely cottage and Helen is a super host. We really enjoyed our time in Guernsey and were sorry to leave. Helen is a very cheerful and knowledgeable lady who could answer all our questions.
