I stayed here for three weeks in March and April 2015 while I was doing an anthropological research project. This place isn't easy to get to, because it's about 2 miles from the last bus stop, but it's well worth the walk. This place is quiet, friendly, and quirky. The town of Richmond literally consists of this place, one bar... More

Great place to get away from it all, with clean, basic amenities. Many opportunities for hiking, short walk to the beach and nearby dark view falls. Beautifully maintained property with gardens and produce trees.
