We were made feel welcome by John and Sonia from the moment we arrived for a 2 night stay. We were a bit jaded having missed a turnoff and the one hour late afternoon drive became two and night had fallen. We were shown into 'our' lounge which is large, very comfortable and well equipped with a large flat screen TV, DVD player, CD player and books and a tray of tea was laid before us and much appreciated.
Our room was delightful, the bed wonderfully comfortable and having a sliding door onto the verandah where breakfast was served was an additional bonus. And what a breakfast!! Every seasonal fruit imaginable, locally made yoghurt, a jug of fruit juice, unlimited pots of tea or coffee and then John quietly reappeared and asked us if he may cook a hot breakfast for us! Unable to refuse, in spite of all the fruit and yoghurt, we enjoyed beautifully cooked eggs, bacon, mushrooms and toast. Then out came the home made jams and marmalade.
To have a leisurely breakfast in such peaceful surroundings is a wonderful way to start the day. The view from our table was over the tree tops to distant mountains, for Tasmanians like us, it was easy to imagine we were perched above the jungle.
Avocado Grove was the perfect place for us to stay in. The purpose of our visit was to attend a family wedding at nearby Flaxton Gardens. The wedding was wonderful and our accomodation just flawless and the return drive to Brisbane was brilliant with the incredible views towards the coast.
John and Sonia take care and pride in all that they do, we highly commend Avocado Grove.
