Darryl is extremely friendly and Maria is an excellent cook. There was fresh fruit, coffee and tea, and a variety of pastries for breakfast. Darryl is attentive and a great resource. The space is clean and relaxing with a variety of art and local flowers occupying the rooms. Darryl arranged for a ride from the airport, reducing the stress of travel in a foreign country. We enjoyed talking with Darryl, as he has many interesting stories to share. I highly recommend this B&B!!!
