A great review received today on tripadvisor......... Great stay” 5 of 5 starsReviewed 2 days ago NEW This property has many style rooms including a private building, traditional double rooms and shared backpacker accommodation. We stayed in a double room with shared bath. This property is very nicely decorated, extremely clean, modern and very quiet. This was one of the best shared accommodations we had in 2 months of travel. (This is NOT a run down, older backpacker.) The shared kitchen was small but well stocked. This facility is a great place to just hang out. They have a large shared dining table, TV room with couches/chairs, sun porch with chairs, outside eating tables, and outside lounge chairs. The furniture was all in good shape. The location is a short walk to the Ocean/promenade and multiple grocery stores. There are laundry machines and clothes drying lines. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We are in our 40s and were very comfortable here. There was a wide range of ages staying here. This is not a party place. I would stay here again and happily recommend to others. I hope you find this helpful and if you do, I would appreciate a helpful vote. Thanks!

Womad this weekend just up the hill from Ducks & Drakes. We have had the crew from Wildernest Glamping here the past few days as they set up all the Glamping sites for the weekend. Especially looking forward to seeing Richard Thompson Electric Trio, Youssou N'Dour, Malawi House Boys and Public Service Broadcasting - and that's just on the opening night! Quack Quack.
