We stayed at the Maison de May on our drive down from the Gold Coast to Sydney. What a pleasant surprise to see that the B&B we had booked on-line the night before (via Wotif.com) was so comfortable! They put great attention to detail into their decorating, landscaping (lovely courtyard in the middle area!), and snacks/breakfast treats.
We arrived late (almost 9pm) and had to call to get our key to our room. The women who answered was very helpful and nice, she was even able to recommend a few places to eat at the end of the road (the only one open was Sticky Rice Thai and it was awesome!) Our room had a private outside entry so we didn't disturb anyone when we brought our bags in. It was a studio room which I thought would be small but in fact it was quite large. There was a living room and kitchen and nice sized bathroom downstairs and a loft type room upstairs that had a queen and a single bed in it. Everything was VERY clean and welcoming.
It is not walking distance from town but it is in a very quiet part of the outlaying neighborhoods and only a short drive fromthe beaches and town activities.
I would highly recommend this B&B for a weekend get-away trip with someone special :-)
