We stayed here for one night just before Christmas. My wife and I and two kids, so we booked both rooms. Each room had a queen size bed (the kids shared a bed), and an en suite bathroom with shower. The rooms were comfortable and homey, each nicely stocked with a selection of teas, instant coffee, cookies, and a hot water boiler.
After dinner at a restaurant in Princetown, we headed to the 12 Apostles Secret Spot B&B around 9:00 PM, just as the sun was setting. Robyn and Van Lamme came to meet us at the gate and were very warm and welcoming. We were a little tired from our travels, so she just quickly showed us our rooms, explained a couple of things, and left us on our own. We all got a very good nights sleep.
As others have mentioned, the rooms / beds / bathrooms / towels were very clean and neat. Couldn’t ask for more. Our bed was very comfortable and the kids had a great night sleep in their bed as well. The rooms were eclectically decorated with very good taste and a wide variety of found and purchased items. We loved the style.
We woke to a beautiful sunrise the next day. Robyn asked my daughter if she would like to collect the eggs from the chicken coop for breakfast, an offer which was readily accepted! Soon we were eating a nice breakfast of fresh eggs, bacon, roasted tomatoes, toast, and orange juice. Hearty and delicious.
We spent the next hour or two walking around the yard just checking out all of the interesting and creative ‘recovered / recycled’ art that Robyn has created and placed around her property. Many of the items are things she has collected from the beach… Just like in the rooms, we really liked her style and my kids got some good ideas for projects of their own back at home.
At breakfast, Robyn wrote a list of suggestions for places we should stop along our way (driving to Robe from Princetown). It was a great list, and we highly recommend the stops recommended!
In conclusion, we all give Robyn and the 12 Apostles Secret Spot B&B two thumbs up! We loved it and highly recommend it. (our only regret was that we only booked 1 night here… Two nights would have been nicer, especially with all there is to do in the area.)
