          Christine has created in her home a perfect slice of tranquility. Spectacular gardens, fabulous views, floor to ceiling windows, high thread count sheets, fresh flowers, delicious breakfasts......its all at Doolans! Christine herself is warm and welcoming! We highly recommend a stay in her beautiful home!
