I love the tranquil garden feel and the small touches such as the 1st day breakfast, the personal arrival and departure letter and Thursday donuts – lovely ideas that make you feel welcome.  Great local introduction to the area and fab location near the beach and sunset view over the lagoon.  Thank you :)
