Absolutely loved this little B&B situated on a creek with dolphin and manatee swimming at the bottom of the garden. The main house is beautiful and as others have said, Andy prepares a magnificent breakfast cooked to order, and is on hand for advice on all things local. The house and grounds are exceptionally well maintained and it was difficult to tear ourselves away to see more of this lovely area. We did, however enjoy a fabulous day fishing at nearby Sebastian inlet and the town of Melbourne itself is interesting enough to while away an afternoon in the antique shops, boutiques and ice cream parlour! There are some lovely restaurants within walking distance and great beaches a stones throw away. We wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend.
