Without DOUBT, the best guesthouse!

A few years ago, i stayed at Carpe Diem - maybe by accident i think - and i knew i would never willfully stay at another guest house in Ptown. The 3 men who tend to the house run it beautifully. They treat you as though you were old friends - hugs, help, wonderful breakfast, reservations, you name it. The spa is a great treat. The breakfasts are without equal in my experience in guest houses. They lay out a fine spread, make a special hot dish for the morning, and even still will make eggs or omelets at your request. Coffee and tea are available all day, and i don't mean burnt nasty stuff. A nice coffee maker is at your disposal. I have stayed in various rooms, and they are all quite comfortable. Some of the rooms have bathrooms that are on the small side and could use a little updating, but most are nice enough. There is a main house and, across a patio, a separate house. I personally like staying in the main house since it's more sociable, but if you prefer more quiet, then the secondary house might suit you.
