Janice and Steve Glass are the quintessential hosts of Areca Palms Estate Bed & Breakfast in Captain Cook. My husband and I have had the pleasure of staying with Janice & Steve every year since Feb 2001. Obviously there are reasons why we return.
From the first day we met Janice and Steve, they offered not only their beautiful home, but their extensive knowledge of where to go and what to do, all tailored to the morning question of, what are your plans today?
The rooms are immaculate and the grounds well tended, this is truly a little bit of heaven on earth. Janice and Steve are thoughtful hosts and will give you suggestions based on your particular interests; far better than trying to glean through typical tourist enticements.
Janice's gourmet breakfasts will truly last until mid afternoon when you suddenly find yourself hungry again. Janice takes care to ask about any food allergies, likes and dislikes, e.g. if you are a vegetarian that is taken into consideration. There is much care in the presentation of the food, and the taste is to die for! There are no comparisons to the breakfasts that are served at Areca Palms. These are full fledged breakfasts - no "continental" pastries and juice.
Coming back to Areca Palms after a long day is a welcome relief - it's like coming home. There is hot tub for relaxing and a lanai to laze around, all with the sense that there is nothing to do but enjoy.
So, if you like hearty breakfasts, immaculate rooms, beautiful grounds, good travel advice and excellent company, call Janice and Steve Glass. You will not be disappointed and you will leave wishing for a quick return.
