The single and double rooms are located around the main house in quiet surroundings, they all have private bathroom and their own little terrace. The main house has a dormitory with 7 beds and two family rooms.  

The House is very peaceful and located only 50 m from the beach and one minute walk from the mythical spot of "N'gor right" as seen in the first "The Endless Summer" movie. 

Breakfast and dinner are served in a restaurant with a sea view. The cook prepares meals alternating between European food one day and Sénégalese food on the next.
