My son (18 years old) and myself stayed here for 2 nights: I now regret not having stayed longer!! The first awesome experience upon our arrival was to be announced of a major upgrade in our bedroom at no cost at all... Amazing!! The house is an old Villa (early 20th century) totally refurbished with just a handful of very spacious and nicely decorated bedrooms. We were given two bedrooms and in one of them we had our own bathroom. But it is not the house itself what makes this place great but the owners. Jeannie and Tony are amazing hosts. Jeannie would be always offering very useful advices, they are a great couple and on our first night we would be chatting like friends for hours. And plenty of other amazing details: snacks, muffins, coffee, tea... And the breakfast in

Thanks very much for your lovely review. It was great to get to know you both, over the two nights you stayed with us. I you do make it back to NZ we would love to see you again. Safe travels for the rest of your holiday together and home to the Netherlands. Please keep in touch and let me know how everything is going, and how your son settles in to life in Holland.

A lovely, charming old villa that has been well appointed to provide a B&B experience. My room had a private bathroom and a very comfortable bed with good quality linen. Little extras were provided happy by the host and owner, Jenni. I happily recommend this place and would stay there again.

Amazing stay. Jenny & Tony have upheld and created a beautiful house with a century of history. Jenny has spent years in hospitality and it shows in their attention to detail. Bookshelf with waters, coffee, homemade banana bread whenever you like. Maps. Netflix at disposal. Comfy beds. Both Alan & Jenny in an earlier life were NZ tour guides and have possibly the best recommendation ever. Warm, kind, authentic.

We loved our stay. Our hosts were so welcoming and anticipating all our needs. Everything was clean, comfortable and tasteful. Jennie's gluten free banana bread was amazing. It is a pleasure to see this old villa so loved, and restored from previous owners' alterations. They have a genuine love and feel for the house. We felt totally at home and over three nights we had great sleeps in the comfortable bed.

Jennie and Tony were very welcoming. Jennie organised to pick us up from the bus and throughout our 3 night stay Jennie and Tony went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Very comfortable accommodation - kind sized bed, huge bedroom, lovely breakfasts and Jennie and Tony were very good company. Thank you Jennie and Tony for your hospitality.
