There are a couple of good restaurants nearby and we even dared to walk at night and had no problem... More

Just felt we wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay. Our room was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The bath and shower was perfect and breakfast was really good. We wanted to stay near our daughter and son inlaw and we had a very restful stay. thank you

Our family stayed in the two rooms off the breakfast room. They were nicely appointed and comfortable. Hot breakfast (7 to 9 AM) was excellent. It included an array of fruit, yogurt and granola too. A nice selection of teas and good coffee. The walk into Parkview center and to the Zoo was short and seemed safe. The restaurants within... More

Upon my arrival, The Avenue dusted with blue Jaccaranda flowers greeted me as I approached this delightful B&B.
