Ichtus Seafront B&B is a cosy place for weary travelers to stay and catch their breath. We strive to give each guest the best experience we can. We are situated on top of a small hill overlooking the sea from every room. We pride ourselves in personal service and great breakfasts enjoyed while looking out on the ocean.
The views are spectacular and the sunsets are worth savouring. During winter we have the cosy wood fireplace as well as the gas fireplace in the main living room. This ensures that the house is cosy and warm in winter. The spacious areas makes it easy to be indoors on rainy days.
Sedgefield is a haven for those who like adrenalin-induced activities such as paragliding (one of the most beautiful and well known sites in the world is here, fondly called Cloud 9), kite-surfing and skiing (on water). We also have the very popular Pili-Pili Beach Bar where a meal can be enjoyed outside under the stars...there is no shortage of restaurants and activities in this area.
In Room Facilities:
There are 3 living areas downstairs, two of which face the sea which is a panoramic view which can be seen from all the bedrooms as well. Each bedroom has its own coffee and tea facilities and television. There are also seating areas in each room.
