I had the opportunity to stay at this amazing little gem in November 2012. I was blown away by the actual property, elegant yet understated. Each guest room has a different layout and feel to it but all are incredibly well appointed and stocked full of treats and even a Nespresso machine!
While the property is spectacular, my experience was only elevated by the staff at The Residence. Lucky, the driver, is in full command of the vintage Rolls Royce and very engaging. Sanet, the proprietress was amazing in every way, accommodating each of my requests with a smile and each of my thank yous with "Only a Pleasure" (my favorite new saying).
The meals in the intimate little restaurant were incredible, the menu very broad and each dish prepared with care and presented by an impeccably trained staff. The breakfast served each morning was for for a king.
I cannot recommend this property enough and look forward to the day I return.
