Arrived a little early, which didn't faze our host Di as it gave us a chance to hunt down some Hot cross buns. Beautiful room looking out to the street with doors that opened on to the front verandah. Excellent breakfast the next morning with Di and Jerry looking after us and another couple from Chicago.

Our hosts were welcoming, kind, generous and informative of the area and it's sights and places of interest. The room was large and beautifully appointed to suit the lovely period villa, and the bed very comfortable. The guest lounge was welcoming after a day's exploring, with huge TV if you wanted! Eat at Reno's on the waterfront.
