Pauline makes an outstanding breakfast and Anthony is a charming host! This is my second stay and this time I came with my husband and my son (15). We booked 2 rooms - shows how much I enjoyed my stay here. The environment is pristine and serene; a combination that works well for families and individuals. Joy - Nigeria.
