The old Dutch colonial building has been lovingly restored and whilst some of the floorboards creak, our room was very comfortable and totally unique.
The owner, Karin was very charming and helpful. Breakfast was served with a glass of champagne and comprised of the traditional full breakfast with a huge plate of cut fruit decorated by little flowers, picked from the garden.
Her dogs were large (Irish Wolf hounds), however well behaved and affectionate once they got to know you.
A charming place.
