Your eventful stay over Christmas and the again after the New Year was somewhat of a roller coaster for a day or two. But with support from good friends and family you were able to manage the medical situation very well. We are glad you enjoyed the B&B breakfasts, with a little Christmas cheer as well. Welcome back downunder next time you have a chance to venture back to Australia, and to wonderful Melbourne! Stan

Glen and Patrick it was a pleasure to have your stay once again. You certainly had great weather for the Australian Open tennis. It was very pleasant to be able to share the evenings with you, with a nice glass of wine. Thank you. Welcome back again when you visit Melbourne next time.

Thank you 2ChurchMice. It was very nice to have you all stay, yet again, and this time with an expanded family troupe. I'm glad that you were all very happy with the B&B and service I was able to provide, in a somewhat uneviable developing family situation. At the end worked well for you all. And the sunshine was shining, as you said through the autumn leaves and the beautiful lead lighted windows in the bedrooms. Welcome back again soon!
