We had the pleasure of staying at Jacaranda Lodge for 3 nights recently. Although we had known about the lodge for 9 years & recommended it to numerous people who returned with glowing reports, it was a first experience for us. Now we know why everyone raved about it.
Not only is the setting in a beautiful location but the actual home is very spacious & presented beautifully amongst an orchard of prolific fruit trees, vege garden and 11 chooks wandering around. Robin our host made us feel at home instantly, showed us to our room which was very generous, light filled & airy. She introduced us to the other guests on a first name basis which was something we had never experienced at a motel or lodge before. It felt like a very friendly atmoshere.
Robin has to be commended not only for her extremely immaculate presentation but also for her culinary expertise. What could have been a very ordinary everyday breakfast turned out to be a gastronomic delight. She created beautiful food all produce from her garden including green striped tomatoes, free range eggs from those rambling chooks, home squeezed juices from her apple & citrus trees, red & green tomatoes from the garden & 2 different varieties of home baked bread every day. No two breakfasts were the same. At breakfast we all joined in the discussion of what everyone was going to do for the day and listened to the advice Robi gave us for different options around the area.
There is no doubt that we would love to return here one day soon. It has been a very memorable relaxing time in our
busy city lives.
