“Elegant and pampering!”

The Wadells are exceptional hosts. This beautiful, comfortable suite has the necessities along with many touches which will pamper you. Much of the lovely furniture is created by Robert Wadell and you are invited back to his studio. Norma preps the kitchen for a healthy breakfast featuring local ingredients. The living room and bedroom are comfy and the kitchen is equipped. There's a deep bathtub with Epsom salts, a fireplace, and laundry facilities. There's a relaxing patio to enjoy coffee or a drink surrounded by gorgeous flowers. Additionally, there is access to Neck Point within walking distance. I only wish I could have stayed longer!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a lovely and relaxing stay at this Artful Suite! It is tastefully decorated and some very nice pieces from local artists are displayed. We also really enjoyed the breakfast with the home-made scones! The suite has a washer and dryer which was convenient for us as we stayed for a longer period. Clean and private. We will definitely be coming back!

“The Best”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed for two nights and will definetely return! The place as a whole is very comfortable and stylish, we felt welcome from the minute we checked in. Everything we needed was there - excellent breakfast ingredients, fully equipped kitchen and to top it off a nice laundry space where we could put all our hiking and scuba gear. The decor is simly amazing and the owners are the same!
