I went to this location for a health symposium of sorts and was WOWed by the property. It is someplace you can do a quiet lunch during work to a place you want to have your wedding reception!

We spent nearly two hours relaxing on the veranda and visiting this fabulous property. Local visitors and staff were very helpful to guide us through the structured gardens and identify the many species of plants, shrubs, flowers and trees.

Recently I enjoyed a piano recital in the main house. Since it used to be a home and it is set in beautiful grounds, made the music even more enjoyable
