“A Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2010

My husband & I are not normally people that take notice of testimonials let alone write one. However we did review the testimonials on Christina before staying there and we can honestly say the experience lived up to the testimonials & more. The afternoon tea on arrival was very much appreciated and the divine breakfast left us wanting to remain. The design & decor of the B & B is tasteful, relaxing, spotless & very well appointed. We have no hesitation recommending Christina's to any one who wants quality accomodation, privacy & luxury all at one time & place. Thank you Tina & John (Erica & Eric 20/02/10)

My wife and I stayed for one night here as a birthday present and were suitably impressed. Not only are the surrounds tasteful and relaxing, but the service is exemplary. These guys possess just the right amount of friendliness and discretion and put on a terrific breakfast to boot.
This B&B is so close to Sydney, yet manages to make you feel as though you're a world away. The service provided is not far off the Mai Tai Resort in Port Douglas (albeit without the location!) that recently won Tripadvisor awards for service. They too have a wonderfully friendly dog! Christina's is highly recommended.

I was impressed by the look of the building, then Tina and John greeted us and made us feel very welcome. They showed us our room and it was beautiful. Breakfast was amazing the presentation and the food was full of surprises it was like having your breakfast in a 5 star hotel - I think this is even better. Tina and John such a nice couple and they are very helpful at all times and they know the area very well so they can give you lots of good tips on where to go and see if you are looking for something to do during your stay. Overall if anyone is looking for a romantic get away or somewhere to relax this is the place. You can be as active as you want or just relax and chill out.

It was a great weekend away and exactly what we needed. By far the best hospitality of any B&B we have stayed at, John and Tina made us feel welcomed (without overcrowding us). They were very helpful; providing suggestions for things to do/places to eat and kindly arranged kayaks, dinner reservations etc for us. The mermaid room was very romantic! I loved the shower and double spa and of course the food was divine! I would definitely recommend staying at Christina’s, you will love it!

I can't quite figure out what the best part of the B & B was, but the owners have certainly added plenty of little perks which had made the experience a very special one indeed. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and when we opted to dine in one night, we were pleasantly surprised to be treated to a scrumptious meal that was even better than what we had in a local restaurant the night before. The decent range of DVDs and complimentary night cap in the common room were also some very special touches. We stayed in the Mermaid room which had a spacious double spa and a separate shower area which were both very clean (and I can be quite picky when it comes to cleanliness!). The property is beautifully designed and decorated, and is a true hidden gem within a short drive from metropolitan Sydney. We'll definitely be back!

Absolutely everything we needed and just what we wanted. It was perfect from the afternoon drink and delicious grapes to the generous room, its great balcony and comfy bed, the lounge to chill out and relax, the wonderful breakfast and of course the wonderful John and Tina!! I have no doubt we’ll be back. PS Vita’s was fantastic for dinner.
