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.
Hélène est une hôte très agréable. Elle nous a accueilli le temps d'une nuit très confortable dans une chambre décorée avec beaucoup de goût. Il nous faudra cependant revenir pour découvrir les nombreuses richesses de l'île et profiter de ton hospitalité ;-). A bientôt alors.
Helen was very friendly and welcoming, and we had a really good time. She very kindly offered to collect us from the airport, which was very kind and helpful. We are very interested in local historey and she had some good books about Guernsey. She kindly invited us to dinner one night, and cooked some fresh-caught mackerel which were excellent, and only charged us £10 each for this. We did not hire a car because Guernsey roads are very narrow and they have a very good network of buses all over the island. We took a day trip to Sark which was unforgettable. The highlight of Guernsey was the liberation monument, deeply symbolic and very clever in it s alignment so that, every year on Liberation Day, the sahdow traces out an exact path on the long seat beside it Altogether we were extremely well satisfied with everything.
Helen has really nice house with big kitchen. She picked me in the airport (after my delayed flight), and did show me around the island
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!
